Checked out the relatively new Cotta and loved the hidden door, long stairway up, and cosy space overlooking Tanjong Pagar. Was spoilt by choices between their gelato-based desserts and classic waffles & ice cream but eventually settled on the staffโ€™s recommendation of waffles.

Double scoop of ice cream was $9 +$1 for premium flavours. Generally enjoyed our two choices of creamy and smooth ice cream that were rich in flavour without being too sweet. Would recommend the roasted nutty ๐’๐ข๐œ๐ข๐ฅ๐ข๐š๐ง ๐๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐œ๐ก๐ข๐จ (4 โญ๏ธ) while those looking for a more unique option can consider the ๐Œ๐ฎ๐ฌ๐œ๐š๐ญ ๐ ๐ซ๐š๐ฉ๐ž ๐ฌ๐š๐ค๐ž (3.5 โญ๏ธ). The refreshing sweet and floral profile brought back nostalgic vibes of eating Hichew grape candy, while we couldnโ€™t quite discern the sake.

Their ๐ฐ๐š๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ (3 โญ๏ธ) were well-grilled to be highly crispy throughout and consequentially dry. We generally prefer fluffy, softer/ chewy cross sections thus werenโ€™t huge fans of this light, biscuit-like rendition. But worth trying for fans of airy waffles that stay crisp and donโ€™t soak up the melted ice cream.
