Because I cannot come here and not order their gyozas (which are dressed all come-hither in mayo, chilli and shallots) AND a plate of their thick-cut, aromatic, roasted "chashu", something's got to give. And that something is the size of my bowl of ramen.
As much as I love their umami, rich and in-your-face spicy ramen, I rein in my greed (with some difficulty, mind you) and get the smaller portion at $12++. So that leaves just enough space in my belly to accommodate all my must-have's here. Once in a while, I also like to add a side order of corn ($2++) because I find it brightens things with a fresh sweetness.
This brand new cafe along Evans Road highly recommends their salted caramel waffles, which are light, fluffy and tasty. The coffee here is decent too. Needless to say, this cafe will please the Bukit Timah folks! Photo by Alain Foodology.
At only $3.50 for a homemade waffle, this comes at a pretty good value. Pick a couple of their unique ice cream flavours to go along with the crisp waffle, $3 for a single and $5 for a double scoop. Go for their Salted Caramel and the Horlicks Tim Tam flavours. Photo by Make Your Calories Count.
Priced at $13.50, this stack of 3 red velvet pancakes come with addictive homemade cream cheese frosting, and are the perfect complement to the large serving of truffle fries you know you're going to have. Great for those who simply love red velvet! Photo by Keng Wee Tan.
At $12.90, this amazing Waffles Stacko is truly a steal. A great choice when you're in the town area, this simple cafe is great for indulging in ice cream and hot, crispy waffles. Perfect for students and groups of friends, get a nice big stack to share! If you're a small party, go for the Sinfully Chocolate or the Merry Berry. Photo by Rachelle Ling.
D.O.C certainly has an edge over the rest by nailing both the sweet and the savoury buttermilk waffle. The savoury sun-dried tomato and herb waffle with bacon, fluffy scrambled eggs and maple bacon jam is a perfect choice for breakfast. The sweet version comes with caramelized rum bananas and vanilla bean ice cream, and has won over many dessert-lovers hearts. Why not try both next time you head down? Photo by Eleanor Tay.
Creamier's long queues and licked-dry plates are testament to the truly addictive nature of their ice cream and waffles. Expect to queue even on a weeknight, but it's seriously worth it. Two perfectly crisp waffles stay firm below two scoops of dense ice cream. Go for the Salted Caramel Gula Melaka and the Roasted Pistachio. Photo by Geraldine Tay.
