It has been a while since I’ve went for a food tasting event!
Sometimes I find it difficult to say yes to food tasting events or blogger events, because there had been times when the little one fell sick, and I had to take care of her during such event dates.
So I was really happy to receive this invite to The Manhattan FISH MARKET‘s all-new weekend breakfast menu tasting. It was on a weekend so I could lug along the hubby and the toddler together! Yay!
Just this month, June 2016, The Manhattan FISH MARKET launches their all-new weekend breakfast items. I know you must be thinking what’s new right!
You’d be happy to know that The Manhattan FISH MARKET offers a wholesome variety of hearty and delectable breakfast items, at pocket-friendly prices! The menu also features items that are good for 1-pax, 2-pax sharing and/or group sharing. It’s also worth mentioning that the portion for sharing items is not petite sized!
We were happy to be greeted by their chirpy staff at Century Square on a Saturday morning as we dropped by for the tasting. The little one was even happier to be given a balloon!
Once seated, we were handed the menu and given some introduction on their breakfast items. They also have this coloring + origami sheet for the little one! It was quite a relief, as it takes her focus off from running in the restaurant lol!
He wanted her to grow longer, while I really wanted to just trim her hair neater.
It was also a nice touch that the table set-up is very cheery, complete with a sky blue table runner and gerbera flower. Imagine breakfast set-up on a weekend like this:
No hassle to set up table for breakfast at home! And it’s really an instant mood uplift seeing this (well, for me! Hehe).
Even happier to be holding on to the balloon through the meal lol..
Just a note that, as mentioned above, the menu features quite a good selection for breakfast (for single and sharing), other than the items reviewed below.
To complete your weekend breakfast, The Manhattan FISH MARKET offers various beverage options that complement their breakfast dishes. You’d be happy to find freshly squeezed orange juice here (great for tots)!
We also took 2 of their soda, which I sort of regretted. I should have tried their cappuccino (S$3.90)!! Lol.
And now, for the mains.
Salmon ‘n’ Mushroom Sandwich (S$8.95)
This smoked salmon sandwich is great for ladies, or if you prefer a lighter and healthier bite for breakfast. The sandwich features slices of smoked salmon, served with nice, garlicky sauteed mushrooms in between oregano buns. On the side, you would find a poached egg in a slightly crunchy tortilla bowl.
I actually prefer the taste of the poached egg here, compared to the one in eggs benedict sharing platter below.
Nutella & Banana French Toast (S$4.95)
In the press release, I saw that this item being categorized under kids’ favourite – but well, the husband and I enjoyed this sweet treat as well!
This french toast is not overly, cloyingly sweet; yet with subtle great combination of Nutella + Banana. You will find your teeth sinking into delightfully soft toast with nice banana-y taste, complete with light chocolate drizzle sauce!
I find it great for sharing as well, probably after the savoury main items. Its pocket-friendly price is good as well!
For 2-Pax or Group Sharing:
Eggs Benedict Sharing Platter (S$17.95)
For great flavours, you can choose this platter for sharing! Sometimes these days I like slightly heavier flavours for breakfast, and this platter is perfect for that!
It features poached eggs atop cheese slice and crispy turkey bacon, crispy hash brown bites (my favourite!!), cheesy snail sausage and fluffy pancakes.
I really have to say that the hash brown is my favourite! It doesn’t leave an oily aftertaste, and remained crispy on the plate. The poached egg also goes well with the flavours of the bacon and cheese. It’s not heavily sauced, however I find it slightly dry with the buns.
Oh yes, I also appreciate their maple syrup – it certainly tastes like the real deal, and not like some artificial heavily-flavoured syrup.
