The small bistro offers western dishes such as burgers, pasta, ice cream and waffles, has been around since 2015!

Salted Egg Chicken Burger ($16.90) is one of the several salted egg dishes they offer. Thick buttermilk fried chicken coated in savoury salted egg sauce, served with a bed of fries, it’s one of those comfy dishes to have.

I realllllllly liked this dish. The salted egg was not overly empowering so didnt feel gross after eating awhile. And although the sauce was not too thick, it didnt feel flavorless.

The chicken was well done too. But i think i didnt pay so much attention to it since the noodles was good enough :D

Damage: $16.90 (ouch!)
Verdict: 7/10

The waffles ($5) were heavy and tasteless unfortunately. Wanted to try the sweet potato waffles but it was $9.50! Abit too expensive for our wallets

Ice creams were sold separately @ $4/premium flavor.
1: Earl Grey - Was good, except that it wasnt frozen enough!
2: Taro - We enjoyed it!

Damage: $13
Verdict: 5/10

Definitely a unique innovation, the BOBO Waffle (S$18.90) is not your usual fried chicken waffle, but one that comes with purple sweet potato waffle and salted egg yolk sauce. The purplish appearance of the waffle is not an act of artificial colouring, but real chunks of purple sweet potato encased in the waffle itself.

Maybe it is something that the masses will love, but I felt that the waffle, because of the purple sweet potato, becomes a little too starchy for me by the time I down half of it. Fortunately, the fried chicken thigh and the salted egg yolk sauce prevented the dish from becoming a disaster, but I guess I should have just stuck to their burgers and pastas.

This dish, like its name, is just a miss for me.

Salted Egg Chicken Burger
Generous portion. Fragrant sauce. Juicy chicken. Toasted and crisp bun. The fries were topped with some spices which i think they could have added more as it is rather bland.

-Butter fried chicken topped with salted egg sauce, curry leaves & chili padi

Rating: 8.5/10

truffle fries without taste of not order the salted egg chicken pasta..tastes horribly salty n not well balanced..will not come again

For those who are spam’s lover do try this as it is crispy and thick at the same time.

Personally, I think the mayonnaise does not goes well with the fries.

Good burgers need a texture that's just slightly rought but not too chunky.
The saving grace is that the lava egg embedded right under the patty flowed like it was supposed to! Personally, I would drop the extra nacho cheese and mayo at the bottom, and focus on bringing solid flavour from the ingredients to the table.

💥 The chicken on this salted egg pasta is so indulgent. Crispy skin, tender flesh. The pasta itself is a little heavy but I expected it. 😋

Chocolate smores waffle + ice cream (8.9 +3)-texture is on point, waffle taste is a bit doughy, but with the compliments (smores, ice crram, oreo) was quite delicious 4.25/5

A somewhat cramped, dim lighted cafe. Very hectic during peak hours, but service is pretty good

Bobo waffles (18.9)-taro waffle with salted egg chicken. Waffle is crispy and fluffy. Fried chicken is surprisingly juicy and tasty, not sure if maple syrup and salted egg sauce work though 4.25/5

Iced caramel latte (6.5)-more of a caramel drink rather than coffee. That said though, it was decent

They called it chocolate s'moresffles, you can choose your syrup and ice cream flavour... mine I choose mint ice cream and caramel syrup for the toppings...

I liked the addition of melted marshmallows between the waffles that gave a chewy texture and sweetness. A let down was the ice cream that were slightly lacking in flavour and our chosen baileys & earl grey with fig did not complement well with the smoreffles, making it slightly odd when eaten together (along with the marshmallows)
