My idea of big hearty breakfast sets are usually those breakfast/ brunch sets that are usually served during weekends at chillax cafes such as Cafe Hacienda, which Jeffrey and I patronised last weekend.
I made a discovery during our lunch session at Cafe Hacienda: Jeffrey likes eating sugar straight from the sachet but he hardly does so because he thinks that it's unhealthy! I remember eating spoonfuls of sugar whenever hunger pangs hit me when I was young! =P Jeffrey eventually brought a sachet of raw sugar home but he didn't eat it (probably because the health-conscious side of him didn't allow him to do so).
Bolognaise Spaghetti ($20). I didn't think the portion size justified the price but Jeffrey insists that the quality made up for the smaller-than-expected serving size. He finished his spaghetti pretty quickly so I guess he really liked it a lot (either that or he was just hungrier than usual, heh).
The Ultimate Breakfast Set ($17). Frankly speaking, I was torn between a few choices but I eventually settled for this because I felt like having eggs on that day. My scrambled eggs were fantastic - they were warm, creamy and extremely flavourful. I loved every bite of it! =) The toast went very well with the eggs and the salad on the side gave a good contrast to the creamy eggy taste. Jeffrey and I were wondering why the sausage was greenish in colour but it tasted pretty good so I guess the colour doesn't matter that much eh?
Sticky Date Pudding with Vanilla Ice-cream ($10). We ended off our meal with this dessert and it proved to be a wise choice because it was much better than I'd expected. The pudding was denser than other sticky date puddings that I've tried and I suspect this is because the dates to pudding ration was higher than normal. I actually liked the strong date flavour and I think the vanilla bean icecream went impeccably well with it. A great dessert to try! =)
I'm thoroughly satisfied with my first visit to Cafe Hacienda and I'm sure I'll revisit this place soon. I can't wait to try the other yummy items on their menu! (: Oh by the way, if you're planning to go on a weekend, I'd suggest making a reservation because the cafe doesn't have a very large seating capacity and it was fullhouse when we went last weekend.
Alright, that's all for today! (: Take care!
