Twenty Grammes @ Ang Mo Kio Ave 10
About a month ago, Twenty Grammes opened their second outlet in the heartlands of Ang Mo Kio. The flagship at North Bridge Road had earned a reputation for their waffles and salted egg yolk sauce served alongside and so they brought those very signatures to the North as well. But not just that, Twenty Grammes AMK also has new exclusive items such as the Yuan Yang Waffle and Soft Serve ice-cream at this outlet.
I came here twice within the span of one month and both times had experienced a sizeable crowd. There were however many tables available both indoors and outdoors so getting a seat was not really an issue. The first visit saw us zooming in for the Yuan Yang Waffles $15– which offers you the best of both worlds with 1/2 a charcoal waffle and the other 1/2 made up of the Belgian classic served with a twirl of milk soft serve and hazelnut sauce on the side to drizzle at your own pleasure.
Thoroughly enjoyed the texture of the soft serve which was superbly creamy and smooth while the waffles were nicely crisp on the outside yet doughy on the inside. We all agreed unanimously however that the charcoal 1/2 was much nicer than the Belgian classic. The sauce which tasted like melted Nutella added a nutty and chocolatey touch to the entire combination. Two thumbs up!
Because we enjoyed the charcoal waffle so much, we ordered two whole Charcoal Waffle $8.50 instead the second time we returned and even added triple scoops of ice-cream $10 to one, and double scoops $6.50 to the other. These waffles each came with a cute cup of salted egg yolk sauce for drizzling and boy was it salty indeed. Though admittedly, it did cut through the sweetness of the ice-cream a little. We tried the Root Beer, Famous Amos, Earl Grey and Thai Red Tea which were all satisfactorily authentic and true to their original flavours without tasting too artificial. Honestly praiseworthy.
So to all you North-siders, Twenty Grammes is definitely a gem in your neighbourhood. Cheers to late night dessert hangouts with quality waffles and ice-cream!
