Village Tavern Benedict by Village Tavern

I was always fascinated with Eggs Benedict ever since I saw someone make them in Masterchef (I don’t remember which season/country it was). So I made it a point to try almost any Eggs Benedict I come across with, and I have tried a handful of them already. When I met with my sister-in-law and their cousins, we tried this place called Village Tavern at Bonifacio High Street. I was expecting that it would only have some sort of “village-y” food choices like lamb dishes and the like so I was not expecting the place to have Eggs Benedict. Because of that, it was a no brainer choice for me to order them.

The serving time of the food was good, at least for my order. My order came with two Eggs Benedict, a small serving of baby potatoes, a small portion of pastry and some fruits, a big serving for my opinion. I finished the potatoes and pastry first before starting on the main dish. The potatoes were really good, since it was covered with sour cream and chives, which I’m really a fan of. The pastry was really sweet, a little bit to sweet for my taste. I guess I should have ate it after the Eggs Benedict. I was already excited in sinking my teeth on the star of the dish. I sliced through the poached egg and was a bit disappointed that it was not poached properly. I was expecting a runny yolk oozing out once I cut into it but what I found was an almost fully cooked one. The bread was soft enough to be sliced easily and had a very satisfying taste. The ham was cooked with the right amount of caramelization which gave it a very distinct sweet taste as you bite into it, which was actually appetizing as well. The hollandaise sauce, however, was just ok. I’m not saying it tasted bad, but rather a bit incomplete for my liking. I was looking for that little hint of lemony taste in it but it was not there. Maybe it was a house recipe that made it taste like that, so I think I may need to try it again next time to confirm. Overall, I was full from the big serving size of the dish but was not fully satisfied with it but will still go back since I am looking forward to trying other items in their menu!
