Revelry Cafe @ 21 Lorong Kilat

The Lorong Kilat neighbourhood has recently come alive with the opening of a whole slew of new cafes. And the eye-catching colourful circus-themed Revelry is one of them. Priding itself as a waffle specialty cafe, this family-run business is all about, as you may have guessed, waffles. Offering not just the usual sweet ones but also uniquely savoury combinations, you probably will find a waffle here to suit your mood for the day.

From low-lying lanterns that flood the ceilings, to flamboyant murals of life-sized elephants painted on the walls, and a vibrant red and white colour scheme going on for the decor, the vibe here is definitely exuberant and a little theatrical- a nice change from the minimalist theme in cafes that is honestly getting a tad dated.  The menu too, which opens up like a fan, adds to the cafe’s overall distinct eclectic appeal.

The waffles that are served here comes with a disclaimer stating that they are “crispy & lights, with loads of air pockets” so if you are the doughy and eggy type of waffle fans, these ones may not suit your palate. We went for the classic Chicken & Waffles $16 which came with a gargantuan piece of fried chicken. Not complaining but boy, was it really huge and chunky, juicy too and moist. One of the better fried chickens atop a waffle which I have had so far. The wilted veggies and almond silvers in between was probably unnecessary though.

The lady at the counter suggested we try The O.K Waffle Pizza $16 which was an interesting mix of otah chunks, chopped kai lan and covered with a generous layer of melted mozzarella. It did taste less exotic than it sounded actually, because the combination did work somehow. Would recommend this to anyone up to try something new for a change.

For desserts, if you did want to have something other than waffles, there are also different cakes and plated desserts such as Tiramisu served in a flower pot $8.50 and Panna Cotta $7 to choose from.

Overall, a quirky concept worth traveling to the West for. The waffles may not be the best or fluffiest in town and not really that nice to eat by itself, but when paired with the generous portions of their toppings, the union works and is frankly quite enjoyable.
