Waffle is fluffy & moist inside, crispy outside; dust with sugar, topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries & berry compote; opted for blue pea lavender ice cream which has strong floral taste, not overly sweet; good sweet ending dish for sharing..

Brussels sprouts are fried & tossed with mixed curry spices; tad salty, tastes nothing special..

Beef is well-braised to tender with no gamey taste; sauce is tangy, rich & flavorful, not spicy; with tomatoes, kidney beans, burnt capsicums & red cheddar cheese; opted for sourdough which is soft; a well-executed dish worth a try..

Al-dente pasta tossed in rich cream sauce with strong truffle taste & aroma, yet not surfeiting; with a medley of crunchy mushroom; 1 of the better truffle mushroom that I've tried..

Buns are soft & fluffy; meat is tender, succulent & well-marinated; housemade green sambal is flavorful & aids in reducing the greasiness; fries are crispy & lightly salted, not oily; not a fan of fried chicken burger but this is quite well-executed..

I think it's really nice chocolaty and chewy. And its gluten free free so it's pretty good. I am not on a gluten free diet so I can't make comparisons with other baked good. But it think this brownie does taste quite nice. Although i must admit it's rather expensive at 7plus considering its size.

Babba is a new addition to Jalan Riang, a stretch of eateries hidden within an enclave of landed houses nearby Serangoon MRT Station. Cafe by day and Peranakan restaurant by night, I popped by for breakfast.

The breakfast/ brunch menu is pretty lean, with only six items on offer. The Homemade Kaya Butter Toast & Eggs has been doing the rounds on social media, but I was loathe to pay $12 for something you can get at a kopi tiam for under $4. It's just kaya, folks, not Japanese A5 Wagyu beef.

I picked the ๐—•๐˜‚๐—ถ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—•๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜ ($8), which came with a choice of toast (I had the Sourdough) and eggs (I chose scrambled). The ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ต was well toasted, with crispy edges and a fluffy centre. The ๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—˜๐—ด๐—ด๐˜€ were divine, fantastically fragrant and creamy.

To beef it up, I added a ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฒ ($6), ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ต๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—บ๐˜€ ($5) and some ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ ๐—–๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป (3 pcs, $5.50). The sausage was ok, while I liked the earthiness of the mushrooms. The undisputed star, however, was the bacon. Other places serve paper-thin slices of bacon that are overly greasy, but Babba's bacon was THICK and not oily at all. It was seductively scrumptious.

I also ordered the ๐—˜๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ผ ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ผ ($4.50) but it was too acidic and sour for my liking. Overall I loved the food at @babba.sg and would like to try the dinner menu, although the prices tend to be on the steeper side.

Fried Chicken Burger ($26)
- Upgrade to house fries ($4) - the fries basically came with more seasoning compared to the default fries - the default ones were alr good enough tho. This burger came with kicap glazed chicken thigh, which wasn't as crispy as expected.

Overall quite an average fair, but thought the dinner menu might be better (?) since it's more focused on the peranakan flavours/ dishes.

Pulled beef rendang, fried shallots, pickled cucumbers, brioche bun, sour cream. The beef rendang was really tender and slightly fatty, but I personally would prefer to pair the meat with rice, rather than with other sauces in a burger, as I don't get to savour the meat's flavours fully. The fries were really crispy and well-seasoned tho!

For those who are interested in peranakan food, @babba.sg serves up such dishes, and have brunch, pre-dinner, and dinner menus for different times of the day.

We on a weekend afternoon and tried their brunch menu, with each of us picking one main each.

Dry Laksa Pasta ($26)
Hokkaido scallops, tiger prawns, fried beancurd puffs, Spaghetti, curry leaves. I actually quite liked their fried beancurd puffs, which had a good dry laksa flavour! If you're a fan of dry laksa pasta in general, you'll probably enjoy this.

Berry Sure - $14.80
Back to homely Wimbly Lu. Wanted to try their waffle, and berry version is definitely my pick. Crispy waffle thatโ€™s topped with sliced strawberries, blueberries and berry compote. Love the sweet sour flavours. You get a scoop of ice cream too, double the love. Share the waffles with family and friends, share the sweets
