A little weekend pick-me-up with a group of friends at a cosy little hideout.
Oh my pretty ladies with pretty #brenoverlays flags over their heads.
Now let's dig in!
English Muffin | Sautéed Wild Mushrooms | Sweet Corn | Streaky Bacon | Hollandaise Sauce
Sous vide eggs are a specialty of Skyve, so I would say this dish is a must-try.
I just opted for the scrambled eggs because I was craving for that.
So yes, if you were wondering what exactly is sous vide, let me provide a simple explanation below.
Sous vide is a method of cooking, and the word "sous vide" is French for "under vacuum".
It means t cook food in a sealed airtight plastic bag in a water bath for a longer time than usual. The purpose of this is to regulate the temperature and keep it lower than normal cooking temps.
The intention of this cooking method, is to cook the item evenly, and most importantly not to overcook the outside, thus making the food juicier.
2 eggs with choice of style: Overeasy | Sunny side up | Scrambled | Soft Poached
Choice of bread: Wholemeal | Sourdough | Brioche
Served with: Wild Mushroom Fricassee, English Pork Sausage, Confit of Cherry Tomatoes & Roasted Baby Potatoes
I stole a few forkfuls of potatoes and a portion of the sausage off this plate.
The roasted baby potatoes were so flavourful and melt-in-your-mouth soft.
Sourdough Bread | Truffle Scrambled Eggs | Grilled Baby Asparagus | Baked Portobello
Get a load of that hugeeeeee Portobello mushroom!
Oh, Skyve, I really think you serve up the most unpretentious brunch ever.
This is simple yet immensely satisfying.
I must say, the scrambled eggs were really fluffy and well done. I couldn't really taste truffle, but that could just be me. (I didn't taste truffle when I ate truffle fries too =X)
In addition, I find that the portion of food is also just right for me, I love it!
Bing Cherry Compote | Vanilla Ice Cream | Toasted Almond Flakes
This was a mehh for me.
Cherry compote a little too sour for my liking, and the brownie wasn't fantastic.
I like the ambience of this place, very chillax and very elegant. It's tucked away in a corner of our city, so there wasn't too much of a crowd. The food they served up are of decent quality, and I'm quite in love their menu too.
