Gone are the days when waffles are being eaten on its own—there are literally cafes serving waffles paired with ice cream everywhere we go now and even savoury waffle pairings for those who do not have a sweet tooth.
The waffle and ice cream pairing seems to be a trend that never gets old. Golden brown, crispy waffles and velvety smooth ice cream is the perfect combination and an ideal dessert for many who are looking for a hearty dessert to round off the night.
Granted, these treats do not come cheap. For those who’d love to savour some waffles and ice cream without breaking the bank, fret not for here are 10 cafes in Singapore where you can get waffles and ice cream for less than S$10.
Most of us who live in the West should have already visited JEM, but how many of us are actually familiar with JEM inside and out? No one mentioned a hidden eatery located above Cookhouse by Koufu. If you think the fifth storey is the highest level in JEM, think again.
Poppy Pops actually sits on the sixth floor and is only accessible through the food court or the breezy rooftop located at the top of the shopping mall. If you are seeking a place with tranquil ambiance, sunlight and pleasant bites whenever you feel peckish, take a seat and grab a Poppy Classic along with the café’s Maple Butter Waffle.
What else is better than pleasant fare? Free Wi-Fi! Visitors do not have to pay for GST and service charge at Poppy Pops too.
Singaporeans seem to have an unfathomable appetite for waffles. Over the years, many cafes and dessert joints have boasted the iconic dish in numerous innovative ways to satisfy our cravings (and Instagram feeds), but it is a shame that in the midst of all the hype, many people have neglected one of Singapore’s oldest fried chicken and waffle joint.
Waffletown at Balmoral Plaza is a family-owned retro fast food restaurant that has been serving American food such as burgers, fried chicken and Belgian waffles for the last thirty odd years in Singapore.
At Waffletown, expect no gimmicks, just great food and possibly the best (and simplest) waffles around.
