Hatch 22

        Among the food that makes me happy, Eggs would definitely be one of them. It's such a simple but sunny and happy breakfast food that never fails to put a smile on my face. Especially when I'm very very hungry. I can eat eggs any time of the day. Scrambled, sunny side up, salted egg, century egg, hard boiled, or soft boiled. Except raw, I'd be more that happy to eat it all! 

        So you can imagine my delight when I saw the all-day breakfast menu of Hatch 22 owned by celebrity siblings and business partners Erwan and Solenn Heussaff.

        Hatch 22 is located at Rockwell, Powerplant Mall, near Starbucks (right by the driveway). You don't actually need to go inside the mall to access Hatch 22.

        The interiors are nice. A cross between industrial and country. Very laid back and comfy.

And even more bread! Anyway, moving on to the food and drinks!

grilled lemon drink

        I was down with a bit of cold at that time we went so I thought it would be nice to accompany my meal with a lemon drink. Irene pointed out the Grilled Lemon, which I thought was a good idea so I could try something unique as well. The taste? Good. There was a hint of sweetness to it and not all sour. And you can kind of taste the smokiness of the lemon. The lemon is grilled before squeezing it into the drink. Very interesting. And refreshing too!

ice ball

        One of us ordered this fascinating looking drink called the Hatch and Balls (P250). It's a drink containing some rosemary syrup, calamansicello, and Noliprat inside an ice ball. What a pretty way to keep the drink cold! 

bread basket

        We had the Bread Basket 2 (P280) which consist of Pan de month, Spanish bread, Pandicoco, Chicken Empanada, and Ensaymada. 

unique eggs benedict

        Next comes the NYOB (P445). No, it does not stand for New Kids on the Block, but instead, it's Not Your Ordinary Benedict. Sous vide eggs on fresh baked rustic muffins, Italian ham, some wild mushrooms, sautéed spinach and torched citrus hollandaise. Yes it does sound a bit pricey but it is really filling. A good comfort food with a tiny hind of heat which makes it extraordinary!

salmon for breakfast

        If you like Salmon, you can order the Croque Maserati (P580) I'ts seared juicy salmon on top of a brioche bun, then blanketed in a shrimp bisque and hollandaise sauce, and served with a side salad. I found it to be quite good. I enjoyed how juicy the salmon was, but the best part for me was the brioche bun. It was so tasty that it's as if it were dipped in some broth.


        If you're a BIG sandwich kind of guy, you might want to try the Hatchwich (P425) This humongous sandwich contains a lot of meat. A LOT! 


        There's salami, pastrami, forest ham, and pancetta, and some other veggies and then some cheddar cheese, all sandwiched in between two thick multi-grain loaf. It was a good sandwich with all the taste coming from all the layers of meat, and the crunch from the fresh veggies. Served with fries on the side.

curry eggs

        This next one is my favorite! Imagine fluffy scrambled eggs with curry!!! That's the Slum Dog Millionaire (P620)! I really liked this! My first time to eat curry eggs! It's quite addicting to eat along with the huge thin and crunchy poppadum. I would so love to eat this with rice bwahahahaha!

  4. EVA Air has developed a unique onboard service that uses Taiwanese, Mandarin, Hakka, and English as its
    in-flight announcements. The use of Taiwanese
    folk songs and orchestral forms was also used in its boarding music.
    In the mid-1990s, EVA Air started acquiring shares in local airlines Makung International Airlines
    and Great China Airlines. In 1998, all three carriers merged under the UNI Air banner.
    In 2004, EVA Air placed eight firm orders for Boeing 777-300ERs. The first aircraft to enter service was the new flagship aircraft of the airline, which was launched in July 2005. As part
    of its comprehensive revamping, the airline also introduced its new Premium Laurel and Elite Class cabins.
    In 2014, EVA Air launched its
    expansion plans in North America. The company plans to add new routes to Houston and Chicago in 2015 and 2016.
    In 2016, EVA Air was one of the 11 airlines that received a 5-star rating from Skytrax.
