Run by the same guys behind the now-defunct Ronin and Punch at North Canal Road, Gather is their new concept at Raffles Arcade Hotel that opened its doors on the 1st of February.
Gather serves both sweet and savoury French crêpes, sandwiches, baked goods, coffee and other beverages. Being a treat loved by most, crêpes are no stranger to us, but what makes Gather stand out amongst the rest? Read on to find out!
Thin and delicate, the heavenly French crêpe is a traditional age-old delicacy well-loved by French natives and discerning foodies all over the world.
The galette was first created several centuries ago in Brittany, and till date, it remains an integral part of French cuisine. The classic dish is so symbolic that the French actually celebrate “Crepe Day” every 2nd February with Candlemas.
The popularity of French crêpes has extended beyond its hometown’s frontiers and word of this delightful treat has inspired many to open up crêperies even in non-European cities. Unsurprisingly, food-centric Singapore has jumped onto the French crêpe bandwagon and multiple specialty crêpe stores have sprouted across the island.
We have shortlisted a mouthwatering selection of affordable savoury French galettes and sweet mille crêpes that are worth your cash and calories. From galette specialty O Comptoir’s Ménage à 5 crepe (S$16.50++) to EwF By Everything With Fries’ Nutella Crêpe (S$6.90), we are thrilled to present to you our Guide to the 9 Crêpes in Singapore. Bon appetit!
The Daily Roundup at The Working Capitol – one of the hottest co-working spaces in Singapore - serves a simple purpose of offering fresh food and coffee. The menu is conceptualised by Chef Bruno Menard, and the star dish has to be their great selection of both sweet and savoury crepes. We love the space for its free wifi and minimalistic interior.
Great ambience, laid back vibes; that is what you will get at The Daily Roundup.
Out of the Pan at the basement of Raffles City is one of those places that I’ve always walked past, but never thought of trying. I finally went there one day, and the food was surprisingly good. The Banana Spilt Waffles ($14), in particular, was outstanding and one of the best I’ve had on our little island. The Chocolate Mania Crepe ($14) and Peking Duck Crepe ($15.50) were also very good.
The good news is DBS credit/debit card holders get to enjoy 1-for-1 promotion for waffles and crepes. The offer is available all day from Sunday to Thursday (10am – 10pm).
