Came here with a group of friends after dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by the texture and taste of the waffles! For ice cream, we chose Oreo Cheesecake, Blood Orange, and Coffee Caramel. Oreo Cheesecake was the favourite, followed by Coffee Caramel. The Blood Orange was too sweet (clearly an artificial sweetness) such that we couldn’t taste much of the original fruit. Although the flavours were nice, they weren’t mindblowing either. Just a regular ice cream and waffle place with nice ambience!

For drinks we shared a Hot Chocolate and the Poppy Lemonade. Both were decent, and not too sweet especially for the Hot Chocolate.

Overall pleasant to go with a group of friends! They had outdoor seating but it rained so it was wet.

Got the rose pistachio ice cream which surprised me initially at how pleasant it was, light, floral and nutty without feeling like I was eating a flower. The brownie was a good complement to it, rich and chocolately.

My friend got the charcoal waffle which was the chewy type, and the charcoal flavour was present. Not sure how to feel about that but the milo ice cream made up for it.

It was really quiet on a weeknight and they had a 1-for-1 mains promotion across their menu items so we didn’t need to use burpple to redeem the offer! Salted egg sauce was nice, and everything was cooked decently. The truffle chicken wasn’t overpowering, and my friend enjoyed it too. A very hearty (and heaty) meal that left us satisfied!

Stopped by Sugarhaus for dessert, there wasn’t much seating available so we sat outside on a small table. Nice ambience even without aircon. The burpple beyond deal was too much for three people to share. We got two waffles, each with two scoops of ice cream.

The waffles here aren’t the fluffy kind. They were very crisp and not doughy, but I realised that once they soak up the ice cream they become softer. Overall it really wasn’t my type of waffle, because I could barely taste the waffle in the light of the crisp (almost crunchy) texture. Personal preference, though.

Ice cream flavours we got - cinnamon (was quite nice and refreshing), dutch chocolate (very gao and rich, not too sweet, very nice), raspberry sorbet (melted v quickly but quite liked the sour and sweet balance), and banana (decent, true to the banana taste and not artificial flavour).

Overall not bad for a catch up with friends, and hopefully the type of waffles they do here are your cup of tea!

Was surprised that the aburi salmon mentaiko don (grain bowl) was a cold dish because the salmon was already in a salmon mayo form. That made it slightly underwhelming. There was a strong mayo taste which I didn’t mind, but may get gelak after a while for some. An average dish, probably wouldn’t recommend everyone try it.

The pork belly miso, however, was delicious. Two fat pieces of melty pork belly, mamee noodles for crunch (it worked really well!), a softboiled egg, and two types of seasoned vegetables atop a bed of Japanese rice. The combination of flavours and textures were very pleasant and I would definitely eat this again.

It was $16++ per bowl, but used entertainer so after GST it came out to $17.12 for the two bowls. A steal!

We came here for lunch, not dessert (perhaps next time) and were not expecting much but the food was well cooked and piping hot when it was served, which i’m sure added to the “shiok” factor. The green curry pasta was al dente, just barely spicy and slightly on the heavy (gao) side, which I was quite fond of. It had good fragrance, similar to the miso mushroom pasta. The miso flavour was also quite strong but not a problem if you’re into that kind of thing, which I think most Singaporeans are, really.

We sat upstairs in the aircon and the place had a nice vibe, though seating was limited especially with students occupying several tables to study. A pleasant little nook to hang out at and study/read a book. Using Beyond, we spent about $13.90 total.
