Poulet at Bugis Plus: Lovely Roast Chicken, but Service Staff Need Training

Back to Wild Honey at Scotts Square for Bacon & Pancakes (& A Bit Miffed about the Service at the End)

My second visit to Wild Honey at Scotts Square, and boring me had pancakes and bacon again. I wish I could have ordered scrambled eggs and a brioche as a side order. You can order bacon as a side though. … Continue reading
