My mum has been raving about this place,
she loves her waffles
so we ordered to share:
French Onion Soup
Butter and Jam
Verdict: 1/2 of us will return.
French Onion Soup: it was tasteless. I don’t think i really need to elaborate on it further.
waffles: considering this is the second time that my mum has returned, she mentioned how the first time around the waffles were much better -> in terms of the level of fluffiness and crisp. This time around both waffles were just too airy and not very crispy.
Damage: $15 per pax

A casual meet up to explore this place in the hood
we ordered to share (ok i had the waffle to myself but couldn’t finish)
so we ordered to share
Red Velvet Waffle
Verdict: 2/3 of us will return.
Coffee: Impressive latte art! My friends had a whale and a bear latte art drawn on their coffees. Taste wise was really ok if you like your after taste to not be so acidic.
Cake: consistent texture.
sweet level: 4/5
Waffle: This was something new that kinda worked. the whitish part is cream cheese, not normal cream.Nonetheless, it was quite solid the waffle, probably due to the chocolate inside. If you like your waffles to have a slightly heavier consistency, I would recommend this one. Crispiness was not compromised even though the mixture was towards the heavy side. 🙂
Just a thought:
1) I think they could try to infuse the cream cheese into the waffle , as I bit into it, there was chocolate inside the waffle, so instead of chocolate, i think if they did it with the cream cheese instead and continued to drizzle the chocolate sauce on the outside, it would have been quite a pleasant surprise.
2) come up with a cream cheese ice-cream equivalent if the above mentioned menthol of infusing the cream cheese is too much of a hassle. Chocolate ice-cream was too much for me.
sweet level: 4/5
Looking forward to return and try the other desserts 🙂
Note* : If i had to measure sweetness level through a cup of milo drink, imagine when making a cup of milo:
Sweet Level (1 being the lowest, 5 being the highest)
- Not at all sweet ( = 1tbsp of milo)
- Subtle sweet ( = 1.5 tbsp of milo)
- Generally Sweet ( = 2 tbsp of milo + 1 tbsp of condensed milk)
- Just nice (= 2 tbsp of milo + 1 tbsp of condensed milk + 1 tbsp of sugar)
- Too much (= milo (9 tbsp of milo+ 2tbsp of condensed mik and sugar))
Damage: $15-$18 per pax

Trudged around to stumble upon this place
just to cool off
Horlicks shaved ice with milo cornflakes
Strawberry shaved iced
Shaved Milk Ice with Nada de coco
Shaved Soybean Ice with pearl, sweet potato ball and yam ball
Verdict: 2.5/5 of us will return
1. Maybe partly was too sweet for us ; though the flavours were pretty interesting. I shared the Horlicks shaved ice. I thought was pretty good but just a little too much
2. The Soyabean flavoured one tasted like Mr bean ice-cream-> though I think I prefer Mr bean (I really need to put up the post on it) .. kinda reminds me of blackball
3. The rest of the desserts were not bad
108 Tanjong Pagar Rd,
Used to hang out at this place when I was abroad in Melbourne
Today, I was treated kindly by a classmate
Fondue: Caramel, Chocolate and White Chocolate
Chocolate Chai Tea 🙂
Verdict: 5/5 of us will return.
I had the chocolate chai .. I must say it is very uniquely nice for all those who likes chai tea latte and wants to take the sweetness a notch higher, this is highly recommended. After a few glasses however, it just was too much for me .. Better this be shared 🙂
The fondue was good, chocolate was solid, not those diluted mixed up chocolate or cheapo melted chocolate.
Crepe was also good -> snapped up very fast
For all who needs a quick chocolate fix, try this place! in Melbourne I remember eating the waffles! super awesome there! but I am not too sure about here .. have yet to try! perhaps on the next trip back!

was looking around for a central place to catch up
always walked past this but didn’t go in to have a look
Breakfast BLT: Grilled Bacon and Provolone Cheese on Ciabatta Bread with Roasted Tomatoes, Fresh Avacado, Rocket and Garlic Aioli
Egg Benedict: Poached Eggs on Toasted Brioche with Wilted Spinach, Cooked Ham and Hollandaise
Ricotta Pancakes: with Caramelised Banana, Candied walnuts and Providore Yellowbox Honey
Verdict: 3/3 of us will not return.
The Pancakes were the light and fluffy ones .. I personally like the thick and heavy ones .. but it was ok ..
Eggs Benedict was quite ok .. sauce was too sharp
BLT was quite average

There is always another stomach for dessert
we headed off and stumbled upon this place
Chocolate Macadamia (dark chocolate mousse cake with Macadamia nuts)
Step Inside Love: Lemon-Sponge Cake with Cheese and Cherry Frosting
Hazelnut Mousse Cake
Verdict: 2/3 of us will return.
All the cakes were very nice, but I think consensually we thought the Chocolate Macadamia was slightly flat…
The lemon sponge was very solid but yet not too heavy. My friend who ordered this is not a very sweet tooth, but she finished the whole cake. ( a very good yardstick to measure against).
Quarter to Three
88 Tanjong Pagar Road
I recall the days when I was studying,
I would frequent this place with my classmates since we were near by
and another one super loved pancakes
I came here before with my close friend and decided to bring them there..
This time around, I decided to pop in for a quick craving fix
Garlic Butter and Syrup
Verdict: 1/1 would definitely return!!!
Consistency is there .. Apart from the bad Ice mocha ( it was not thick? and tasted more like watery chocolate water) , the pancakes were just divine.
If you like your pancakes floury and thick, this would be the place to visit.
Loved the butter as well, very unique and ‘saltish sweet’ ..
Would come back for a sweet salty fix 🙂
happy belly indeed
