Really Big Breakfast. Really?


One day last year, I was very hungry during office hours. So I nipped over to The Red Kettle@The Starling for something to eat.

Upon checking the menu, I noted that they had a new breakfast item - the Really Big Breakfast. That sure got my attention. So I ordered it.


Oh! Look at that. 


A French Toast (very strong on the cinnamon), two slices of toast, some salad, bacon, a sausage, pickle, sweet potatoes, mushrooms and two sunny side up eggs.


Bacon. I never complain about bacon. Love it.


Not too thrilled about the sausage. I am not a fan of the seasoning (too much herbs) and the texture was not to my liking.

The pickle, I felt was out of place. It's carrots and daikon, more suited to Japanese food. But I ate it anyway since I love pickles.


The fried eggs were served separately on a plate. One yolk was almost set while the other was still runny. And it has crispy edges, so this must have been fried in a cast iron pan.


I loved the mushrooms, enjoyed the chewy texture and earthy flavor.


The fried sweet potato wedges were rather nice. Sweet potatoes seem to be the in thing.


As usual, I have no trouble finishing my food. Will I have this again? No, I don't think so. I'll come back for something else.

  1. The sausage was no good? Awwwwww!!!! It looked gorgeous, I'd go for these anytime, so much nicer than the ones here - they just use the supermarket ones. I never even bother to buy and cook and eat at home so what makes them think I will pay to go and eat that in a restaurant?

    1. It looked good, so fat and gorgeous but tastewise, I did not like it. I like those with smokey flavor.

  3. That's a huge breakfast. I don't think I could finish it all alone.

  4. Your title means you don't think the portion is big at all? I agree with you that the pickle is rather out of place. Seems like they may have extra from some other meals so as an afterthought just included it in this big breakfast. I dislike having my food served on chopping boards. Some people preferred their food served on plates like those people at https://twitter.com/WeWantPlates

    1. I should follow up with another sentence : Really! It was big hee..hee.. just the right amount to satisfy my hungry stomach. Me too, I would prefer a plate. I have concerns if the chopping board is properly washed >.<

  5. I think it was a Really Big Breakfast! At least for me...for breakfast (with 3 thick slices of bread). Maybe for lunch...it's another story. But I have to say the bacon looked somewhat greasy...was it? I still dare not try this place as I can't get over their negative ratings on Google (especially the service)...yikes!

    1. It was big, even by my standards hee..hee... No, the bacon was not greasy at all. The service here can be bad at peak hours and that is why I come either very early or later. The first time I came with my partner for dinner, it was chaos. That's why he does not want to come anymore hah..hah...

  8. OMG! OMG! You just frightened me! You are really scary to finish the whole Really Big Breakfast alone! How did you swallow them all? I am guessing now how big your petrol tank is.
