Mikii’s Greek island décor is unexpected in Singapore – the white walls and blue-washed floorboards are a tiny bit of Mykonos, right here in Holland Village.
Owner Winnie shares with me a scrumptious brunch, along with the story of this family business and how it was inspired by her travels. The sea does not lap beside this eclectic restaurant, but its ambience is as refreshing as my iced lemon drink served with finely chopped mint on crushed ice. A more festive option is the New Zealand Marlborough methode traditionelle bubbly, Cuvee Number 8 ($78 for a bottle or $10 per glass).
While deliberating over the set options, let your mouth water at the pastries and cakes in the display cabinet. I chose Hearty Deluxe ($38), which includes all the bread, muffins and scones you can eat, and the yummiest omelette I’ve ever had: served with honey-baked ham and wild porcini mushroom cream sauce. Other options include a must-try tamarind-glazed chicken with glass noodles, followed by a sweet selection, petit pancakes with pear compote and a smoothie shooter.
The Classique or Gourmet Chic sets ($28) seem lighter, but again offer a wide choice. A novel seafood Caesar salad, for example, is served with crispy wanton pastry instead of croutons. Each dish is cooked for maximum flavour and artfully presented, speaking of a commitment to delicious, fresh food.
