What came first, the chicken or the egg? Singapore’s Hatched in Holland Village has the answer. It can be boiled, fried, poached, pickled and scrambled. Take a guess. It’s the mighty egg, the primary source of power at this egg-inspired Holland Avenue all-day-breakfast restaurant. Finally, those who want to satisfy their craving for yolky goodness – sunny-side-up, easy-over, or the dozen other ways you can make an egg edible – have a place where they can come home to roost.
Meet Scrambling Sam, Boiling Betty, Frying Fred, Oliver Omelette, Poached Pammy,
Sweet Egg Ella, and Baked Billy. This is the Hatched family of eggsperts, whose
coop can be found along Holland Avenue in Singapore’s trendy Holland Village.
Hatched is all about eggs for brunch. In fact it’s about eggs all the time (six minutes
into boiling water for the perfect soft-boiled, mind), and brunch all day long. That
said, when the sun begins to set (all yolk-like) and the hens settle down for a night
on their nests, Hatched crack open a more varied menu of delicious comfort foods to
make you feel all feathered and cosy. Rosti, classic Italian pasta dishes, and a good
steak sourced with care from that other farmyard animal.
Singapore’s Hatched has a Catalog of Eggs, bird-speak for menu, with each way you can imagine to do an egg covered by one of its family of fun cartoon characters. Boiling Betty introduces her menu with simple toast soldiers to dip headfirst into soft-boiled eggs. Poached Pammy does a rather sacred-tasting eggs Benedict. Frying Fred has a line in egg-lined burgers, with vegetarian options. Oliver Omelette offers custom omelettes and a Spanish, salsa topped special. Scrambling Sam has a stack of options, including the chef’s special Philly. Baked Billy keeps it in one hot pot, while Sweet Egg Ella does French toast and desserts like no one else. Lastly, but not leastly (chicken, or egg?), the Friends of Eggs selection varies it up with various sides. There’s even a kid’s menu called Hatchlings! Down Holland Avenue, at Hatched in Holland Village, the egg always comes first.
Good food and nice place, a must for all eggs lover
Very Good. Like the food there and the service is good as well. We will be back. Once again, thanks Quandoo for the reservation feature.
The service was prompt and staff made friendly banter, yet giving you lots of privacy. They made the perfect poached eggs, with warm runny egg yolk.
Excellent food and service. My Friend asked the waiter to order whatever that will make him return to Hatched. So he got the house favourites Sir Benedict. It was delicious. I will try that on my next trip.
Despite the reservation is done only on the night before, the reservation is made. We were guided to our seats at the moment we arrive and we had our lovely breakfast. Nice breakfast for people who loves egg and wide variety of selections.
We had the Sir Benedict's. Our 2 kids enjoyed it thoroughly, though I find the vinegar for the salad a tinge overwhelming. The ice honey lemon tea was refreshing but too expensive at $6.50 for a small glass. The ice cappuccino was standard fare, nothing to rave nor whine about.
Food and concept is great for those who love egg based meals! A little bit on the pricier side for what it is though! Recommend for a good breakfast or brunch once in a while, but not an everyday kind of place becuase of price
Great service! We sat there for about 2 hours having a meeting and were well attended to. The food was great but if you are a big eater, I'd suggest you take the double eggs portion.
Lovely ambience. Baked eggs ($13) were delicious. My friends had the Sir Benedict and Smoked Royale (both dishes are $13 for one egg, $19 for two) and were happy with their selections. Unlike some other reviews I've read, we found that the poached eggs were done perfectly today. Prompt and friendly service!
One of the better brunch places in Singapore. It was very kid friendly (high chairs, sippee cups, plastic cutlery all provided with no fuss) and service was excellent, we will definitely be back.
