Dating with Don Ho and I’m not talking about the man himself but the late Hawaiian musician who is also lauded as the ambassador or the aloha spirit. I am absolutely in love with the tropical themed interior and it made me feel as if I was dining in Hawaii or some beach resort. I adore the fun vibes setting with bright pink flamingo and golden pineapple ornaments making this place an idea spot for chilling out with friends over food/drinks.
It was so crowded that day this is the only shot I manage to take but you get the drift. Too gorgeous not to share!
With 2 tropical-look-alike smoothies and that gorgeous backdrop, I really feel as though I’m being transported to another country. Which is also why I think I can hide inside Don Ho whole day all day everyday! With me here are the Flamingo Paradise S$12 (left); strawberry, mango, banana, chia see, fresh milk and coconut milk which I really like, not too sweet yet tasty and Winter is Coming S$12 (right); apricot, almond, ginger, kale, cinnamon and apple juice.
I would recommend this Potato Rosti S$22 which is not only crispy but savoury as well! The Jjamon Iberico ham adds a little salty-ness to the rosti and with the poach egg drizzled with tomato salsa, you are in for a mouthful of flavours!
Another MUST HAVE comforting brunch dish to order would be the Slow Cooked Egg S$18 with soft toasted brioche bread, generous wild mushroom servings with red wine sauce. Just by looking at this picture got me all hungry again!
I have to say the Quinoa Porridge S$16 smells really good and tasted sweet but it really isn’t to my liking. For brunch, I would love my scrambled or poached eggs, sausages, toast bread and not a bowl of porridge. I prefer something filling and more substantial. But if you are into Quinoa, you may want to give it a try and let me know what you think of it?
I was recommend to give this a try for this dish is popular among customers but my verdict? Not a fan. Pimientos De Pardon S$14 is a type of pepper somewhat capsicum like and it wasn’t spicy. Just not my kind of food.
THIS…. THIS I LOVE! Adding a happy ending to my brunch is this delicious Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding S$10 topped with vanilla bean ice cream and hazelnut praline bits.
