Finally got around to trying Buck Tile St. Cafe after reading the reviews highlighting and praising their Blue Velvet Waffles. This hideout is nestled in the nucleus of landed properties of Faber Drive - so be prepared to do a fair bit of walking if you're intending on travelling here by train and bus.

Anyway, let's break this down - it's your usual tried-and-true formula of waffles and a scoop of ice-cream, sprinkled with cyan sugar crystals (I can't tell if it's granulated or demerara or something else), some confectioners sugar dusted across the diameter, and a side of cyan white cocoa sauce for you to drizzle over the waffles.

The waffles are soft to the touch and embody a distinctly chewy texture, which is hard to not notice when you're digging in it. When it arrived at my table, I was immediately greeted with a robust, bready aroma. I wasted no time in diving into it.

I have to admit though that I was not keen on the waffles that were sourdough chewy. I guess I prefer mine less chewy and more crispy. The blue white chocolate sauce too – it felt like an aesthetic addition to the dessert more than anything – the milky-cum-chocolatey flavour was subtle at best. Yet, I would not say it was awful. It just fell short of my expectations.

It's worth checking out if you have the afternoon to yourself, if not with a few friends. Besides, they do have plenty of fares for you to choose from. 😉 (6/10)
