Hubby wanted to go for an early morning walk at Singapore Botanic Gardens today. Normally, I would be most unwilling to climb out of bed at the ungodly hour of 6am on a Saturday. Lucky for him I was in an unusually good mood, and thus decided to indulge him.
Now that the food court has ceased operation, the next most pocket-friendly F&B outlet in Botanic Gardens is Casa Verde. It’s also the only place that serves early breakfast (7.30am to 11am daily). The breakfast menu consists of Western fare such as English breakfast, French toast, waffles, as well as local dishes like chicken congee and mee siam.
Hubby ordered the Western Breakfast Set — fried/scrambled eggs, chicken sausages, bacon, grilled tomato, hash brown, mini croissant, 2 slices of toast served with butter & jam, fresh fruit/orange juice, and coffee/tea.
The food was competently executed but predictable. In fact, hubby commented that the food wasn’t piping hot enough.
But the Western Breakfast Set was definitely very filling, and we thought, rather value-for-money. In fact, it’s probably hearty enough to share between two light eaters.
“Colazione della mamma” means “mom’s breakfast” in Italian. In this case, it was Italian sausage frittata, toast, and coffee/tea.
Regretted my choice of frittata aka baked omelette. It was overcooked, which resulted in rubbery and dense texture. Taste-wise, it was rather bland too. Definitely not worth the $$.
While the food was just average, its pleasant surroundings more than made up for it.
Most diners prefer to chill out in the patio, where one can enjoy lush greenery and gushing sounds of nearby mini fountains and waterfall.
Being a child-friendly and pet-friendly joint means that this is a very popular destination for families. There’s a kid’s menu for little tikes, and water bowls are available for furry paws!
