Kaffles | Waffles & Ice-Cream @ The Stirling Every Saturday Night

From the same young lady behind Mean Bean & Wicked Grind, comes a new start-up which is slated to be the next it-place for after dinner desserts. Kaffles- a play on the word waffles and the owners’ initials (Kimberley and Kenny) is a waffle specialty eatery which shares the same space as The Stirling along Cheong Chin Nam Road. Opened only on Saturday nights between 6pm to 1am, Kaffles serves up a variety of waffles and ice-cream combinations from $9.50 to $12.90.

The Klassic Kaffles $9.50 which is buttermilk waffles served with your choice of ice-cream (Earl Grey, Salted Caramel, Vanilla Bean, Coconut etc.) comes complete with an inverted wafer cone dipped in chocolate and colourful sprinkles, and pocky sticks in between the waffle stack to keep them crisp and not soggy. A refreshing and interesting new look to the usual waffles combinations that we would see in cafes, I am sure this novel presentation will be a hit with many.

New York’s Clinton St. Baking Company & Restaurant Opens in Singapore

When word got out that famed New York’s Clinton St. Baking Company & Restaurant was setting up shop in Singapore and having their soft opening on 19 Sep 15 at 9.05am, a few foodie friends and I immediately rescheduled our original Saturday plans and excitedly made our way down to the 60-seat space in Purvis Street. We arrived at about 10am and already the restaurant was full house so we had to wait for about 20min before we finally got a table. Relatively fast though in my opinion, considering that my prior experience in NYC had me waiting 2 hours on a cold rainy day outside their flagship outlet in Lower East Side before we were ushered inside to a table.

The menu here in Singapore is supposedly similar to the one in NYC. I recognized a few classic items such as their Buttermilk Blueberry Pancakes, Chicken & Waffles, Southern Breakfast and Eggs Benedict. Prices range from $13.50 to $23. Reasonable and none too pricey.

We placed our orders the moment we sat down and though we had plans to order quite a number of items on the menu, the server cautiously reminded us that “portions were American-sized” and that we should be less ambitious with our orders. Rightfully so because when those plates arrived on our tables, servings were admittedly very generous.

Montana Brew Bar @ PoMo

Montana Brew Bar has been generating quite a bit of hype across social media since it first opened at the beginning of this year. From the same people who brought you Roosevelt’s Diner & Bar, Montana is all about the waffles. But not just any ordinary waffles, the choices here are innovative and the concoctions work out surprisingly well. Think Breakfast Waffle BLT, Matcha Strawberry Field Waffles, Red Velvet Waffle Stack and Cinnamon Apple Pie Waffles.

After hearing so much about “THE ULTIMATE” Truffle Jalapeno Mac & Cheese Waffle $12.50, we just had to order it. Montana has also earned a reputation for being receptive towards feedback on their food and acting on suggestions almost immediately. We heard that this is probably already version 2.5 and honestly, it was really quite good. And if you are wondering where the mac & cheese is, it is actually incorporated within the waffle itself so that every bite of that truffle scented waffles is oozing cheese and mac bits. Do not forget to dip those waffles into the curry salsa dip on the side for an accentuation of truffle flavour.

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.

Sin Lee Foods

I am probably late to the party as Sin Lee Foods has been around for a couple of months now. But having heard so much about their food, especially their Fried Chicken & Waffles, late is always better than never. So Sin Lee Foods located at the void deck of a HDB block in Bukit Ho Swee used to be a former coffee shop selling Prawn Noodles and Lor Mee. The current owners who bought over the space chose to keep its name, signboard and much of its old school charm. Reminds you a tad of similar concepts such as The Dispensary, Chye Seng Huat Hardware and My Awesome Cafe but nonetheless, I do support the preservation of old buildings and architecture- adds a bit more character and soul to a place.

This place is not the easiest to find by the way. Your best bet would be to key in the postal code or address into your GPS and follow it. My advice? Drive or cab because unless you live in the area, you might find yourself making a few wrong turns and end up taking much longer than you are supposed to, to reach the place. If you need a landmark, the closest would probably be The Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB).
