Beautiful Eggs Benedict.

I came here on the recommendation of the girlfriend who told me that the Eggs Benedict was to-die-for. While this place doesn't accept reservations for weekend brunch, it's all right for walk-ins especially at 1pm or later. Tucked in a corner at Dempsey Hill (almost opposite PS Cafe), I would probably not have found the place were I not looking for it.

Having been to Prive before Hacienda, I was pleasantly surprised that Hacienda had the same kind of menu with similar food items and prices. In retrospect, it is understandable given that Hacienda is the sister restaurant of Prive. While the ambience isn't as amazing as that of Prive (it's hard to beat al fresco dining with a gorgeous marina view), it's pretty cosy too, with a whole shelf of cooking books and magazines for your pre-dining perusal. I would have to say that the breakfast somehow tastes better too.

Of course, I had to order the Eggs Benedict ($13.50). I was not disappointed. The dish came as two perfectly poached eggs with yellow runny yolks, atop of bed of flavourful ham and bacon on a nicely toasted English muffin, generously topped with Hollandaise sauce. Having tried a few Eggs Benedicts at various other places, I have to admit that this was one of the best I'd tasted. When I'd first ordered the Eggs Benedict at Prive, my order had been served cold, which was a disappointment as it detracted from the taste. Not so here; the eggs were nice and warm, and it made a big difference to the way they tasted. In case you want some greens, there is a serving of argula in the middle of both eggs too. The Hollandaise sauce was just right too; tasty but not overly sour (like the Hollandaise sauce at Riders) or cloying. And it also helped that the Eggs Benedict here are almost half the price of those across the road.

The BF had the full breakfast for $17. I didn't try his food, but according to him the scrambled eggs were very good. Rich and buttery.

Service-wise, this place was efficient. Wouldn't use warm or friendly, but if your baseline is someone who gets your orders and your food quickly, this is sufficient.

We'll definitely be back.

starting off with the biggest and bestest, we had the ULTIMATE BREAKFAST ($17). actually this was my least favourite! haha. i didn't really eat much of it. the set includes two eggs (cooked in your preferred style), sausage, bacon, mushrooms, roasted tomato, baked beans, arugula and toast. i was wondering what arugula was, since it was supposedly present in almost all the dishes. realised it was the veggie. haha. it was quite nice i think! the only things i tried from this plate were the mushrooms and the baked beans. loved the mushrooms. seasoned with herbs and black pepper, the mushrooms were as tasty as they smelled :D i didn't really like the baked beans though. probably because i tasted capsicum in the first mouthful, so it's kinda my biased opinion :P haha.

fluffy pancakes ($13.50)!! haha we are always in search of the best pancakes xD i've no idea what the verdict is anymore. where can you find the best pancakes? please comment and share!! :D the pancakes here are pretty good. i loved the fluffy texture (yay, it's always good when a dish lives up to its name (: ) i liked the strawberries that came with it too, and there was this cute little honeycomb thingy (which is malt sugar) on top. and the WHIPPED CREAM. omg. it was really goooooooooooooood! light and airy, i couldn't resist it, even though i always try not to eat all this cream :P

and my favourite! eggs benedict ($13.50). seriously. ever since i tried my first eggs benedict last year, i think i've fallen in love with this dish. there is just something so satisfying about nibbling at the toasted english muffin, avoiding the egg at first, enjoying the hollandaise sauce, bacon and ham. then when i can't take it anymore, i prick the lovely wobbly poached egg and all the lovely goodness inside oozes out, and i scramble to mop it all up with the rest of my muffin. absolute heaven :)))))

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
