Wild Honey – Singapore’s noted brunch joint that has queues snaking out the door every weekend – has finally made its way to KL. Sweetening up the dining options at Pavilion KL, Wild Honey is a warm and elegant space: beautifully upholstered sofas, stylish dangling lights, striking timber fittings, and a collection of cookbooks and magazines all suggest a keen attention to detail.
More than just a pretty face, Wild Honey offers up a huge menu with all the brunch staples, but all very well executed and kept interesting – their Levant baked eggs come with grilled Halloumi, and the Greek open-faced omelettes feature fragrant lamb moussaka, Japanese eggplant and Greek cheese. More standouts include wild mocha dolce sweetened with royal honey, a New York bagel platter available on weekends, and fluffy Belgian waffles with grilled mango. Note that Wild Honey in KL, unlike its Singaporean counterparts, is a pork-free establishment. Don’t miss the Trio of Scones, which comes with three types of scones (dates, cranberry and plain), served with French butter, clotted cream and a choice of either raspberry, strawberry or apricot jam or the lemon curd.
The formidable combination of excellent food, generous servings and top-flight coffee (supplied by Singapore roasters Common Man Coffee Roasters) means that Wild Honey almost always has a buzzing crowd, regardless of the time of the day.
