For Eggcellent Japanese Dishes From the folks behind En Sakaba and Aburi-EN comes a new eggy counterpart in NEX. Joining the souffle trend is their cloud-like Caramel Peach Souffle Pancake ($12.80) that ticks all the right boxes: jiggly, light and perfectly eggy. It also helps that the sweetness levels are customisable, with maple syrup served separately in a jug. Savoury dishes are also available, like the simple but delicious Ultimate Egg Rice ($5.80), the 5-Kind Japanese Omelette Skewer ($8.80) and an Okonomiyaki-style Japanese Omelette with Octopus ($9.80).

Caramel Peach Souffle Pancake From Tamago-EN; a new dining establishment by the folks behind En Sakaba and Aburi-EN which takes over the former premises of the now-defunct Pablo Cheese Tarts at NEX, serving up various renditions of Japanese egg-based dishes. Offering a small variety of souffle pancakes as a dessert option, the Caramel Peach Souffle Pancake is one of the better variants of soufflé pancakes that we have had around. The soufflé pancakes are pretty light and airy; jiggly and fluffy with a cloud-like texture without being too dense — carried an eggy flavour without any funky bitterness from being burnt nor from having too much baking soda. While a jug of maple syrup comes alongside the soufflé pancakes, we found the item to come with a pretty comfortable level of sweetness by default, and already pretty sweet enough as-is. Coming with Whipped cream on the side, the whipped cream provides a neutral flavour that binds the soufflé pancakes to the chunks of peach, cancelling out part of the tartness that the peaches carry. Quite a good rendition of the Japanese soufflé pancakes here; a place that would probably see the queue lines form up pretty soon considering the type of fare that they serve.

New Shop At Nex Food was ok but they weirdly take a very long time to prepare this considering there wasnt a need to cook anything. Waited about 30mins for food to come. Otherwise egg is as fresh as they claimed it to be. But this small bowl of rice with a few pieces of salmon for $8.80++ is rather ex. Wished it was $2 cheaper.

Turkey Bacon & Scrambled Egg Pancakes It took about a 15- to 20-minute wait for this to be served after ordering. Their Turkey Bacon & Scrambled Egg Pancakes (S$18.90) was one of the three savoury pancake options that one would consider for an all-day breakfast. To be brutally honest, the wait was just a prelude to the bigger disappointment that came next. Without the soufflé puffiness, their classic pancakes was really ordinary in flavours (I quote the diners from my adjacent table commenting that this was comparable to fast food standard), and it did not help that the turkey bacon lacking crispiness and were served cold, and the scrambled egg was somehow tasteless. I probably would not be the only one who would think that this item did not match its price point. Somewhere out there, there were diners who seemed pretty satisfied with their Tiramisu Pancakes. That might be something I would try if I were to come back for them.

Premium Pancakes Soufflé pancakes were not new to the local culinary scene, but these from Gram were quite special. Originated from Osaka, these S$17.90 pancakes were airy, fluffy and every piece were said to be 4cm thick. Slightly leaning when stacked, the wobbly pancakes also came with maple syrup, freshly-whipped cream and a dome of special butter. On its own, the pancakes could melt in the mouth with little floury taste; with the toppings, the pancakes became further enriched with sweet, buttery and silky notes. While Gram was clever to use the limited portions to create the hype (one month on and the queue would still form for the Premium Pancakes), I was not impressed by the tightly-packed tables and the slow service, as this item was served 15 minutes later than the initially-promised time of 8.00pm (not forgetting a one-hour wait before that). The likelihood of coming back for this was questionable, as there were other restaurants out there that offered cheaper options, and much possibly a shorter wait.

French Toast w/ Chocolate & Bananas This was okay only I guess... some cafes in SG can do better. But I kind of preferred the toppings that came along with this to the premium pancakes, though I didn’t enjoy the taste of the french toast.

Stick To Cheesecake Wanted to try the Gochujang chicken but didn't see it in mains hence went for the Cajun chicken with potatoes $16 (changing to fries will cost additional $3). Feel that the chicken was lightly spiced, no particular taste of Cajun, quite ordinary Western food. Should go for the cheesecake in future.

[NEW] Kins' Burnt Cheesecake ($7.50) is officially my favourite cheesecake in Singapore now! 💛💛💛 . It took awhile but the Basque Burnt Cheesecake trend has finally made its way to Singapore and spearheading the charge is none other than this creamy cheesecake from The Kins, a new cafe that just witnessed its official launch last week. Congrats guys! 🎉🎊 . Though this cheesecake might not look as pretty as regular cheesecakes with its singed top, trust me when I say that it's so damn delicious that you'll want a whole piece of this all to yourself! 💯 . Underneath the uneven blackened layer lies a moist, oozy layer at the centre followed by a light, fluffy layer of Japanese style cheesecake at the base 😋 . Dig your fork into the cheesecake and watch as the cheesecake just oozes languidly onto your fork. Lift said fork to your mouth and let the cheesecake just dissolve on your tongue. Pure ambrosia! ❤ . With each mouthful, you open up your palate to a variation of flavours and textures ranging from the slightly bitter & smoky crème brûlée-esque top to the creamy, custardy centre layer which boasts a strong milky flavour & a refreshing hint of zest and finally on to the sweet, fluffy layer of cheesecake at the bottom. Oh yeah, and there are those firm edges at the back which provide a different mouthfeel too! It's oh so satisfying and not cloying in the least bit! 🤤 . Though the cake is served with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream on the side (not sure why ours looked like a puddle from the moment it arrived 🤷‍♀️), the cake is honestly so good on its own that it didn't really need this extra cream to elevate its flavour! 💯 . Definitely wouldn't mind heading all the way back to Pasir Panjang just for this baby 💋

Burnt Cheesecake ($7.50) Tasted better than it looks with slight bitter burnt taste for the top and light creamy cheesy interior and a surprise "caramelised crumbs?" on the bottom. A wonderful dessert and chill-lax place. 👍🏻
