Remember the wedding lunch the other day? After such a filling lunch a few people thought that we should go for coffee. There’s always room for some drinks no matter how full you are. So during coffee, Eggs Benedict was suddenly brought up.
Someone said we should go meet for breakfast and let’s have Eggs Benedict at Choupinette. The guy who has become our unofficial outing organizer was tasked to send out email to see who will be interested. As usual, he passes the task to his sub committee to do it. (faints!) Anyway, the sub-committee was efficient and within 24 hours, an email was sent out.
We met for breakfast this morning. It’s beside Coronation Plaza along Bukit Timah Road.
So the following is what the 7 of us had for breakfast.
All of us had the sets, so they come with a glass of juice and also a hot drink.
Person 1 had scramble eggs with sausage. $18
Person 2 had Eggs Florentine. $20
Person 3 had the Eggs Benedict. $20
Person 4 had the Eggs Royale. $21
Person 5 had the poached eggs with chilli pork sausage. $18
Person 6 and 7 both had Eggs Benedict too. $20
Persons 1 to 7 shared a baguette. $2.80
That was very delicious when you spread it with loads of butter and jam. ahh….
So what’s Eggs Benedict?
Eggs Benedict is a dish that consists of a half of a muffin, topped with ham or bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.
There are variations of it and you can see above. Replace ham with spinach and you have Eggs Florentine. Replace ham with smoked salmon and you have Eggs Royale. If you want to read more, hop over to Wikipedia.
This is not just an Eggs Benedict place. We came here just to satisfy cravings for Eggs Benedict. They have pastries and desserts that are famous too. Hop over to fellow food blogger LadyIronChef to see what he and his group of friends had recently.
Oh ya, some reviews of this place says the poach eggs are all nicely done with the yokes all soft and flowing. For the 6 sets above that had poach eggs, only 3 sets fit the criteria. Also, to get eggs shaped so nicely, the secret is to have vinegar in the boiling water when you poach the eggs, they were probably a bit generous with the vinegar today. The eggs tasted a little too vinegarish.
