By now I’m sure this spot would be pretty popular amongst us youngins but how many of us have tried their desserts? Famed for being a Muslim-owned, halal eatery, this spot does not charge GST or service charge. Not to mention, they have a wide selection of artisanal cakes in their collection.
What I Had
First up, a classic flavour, the Red Velvet Cake ($8.90) served with pretty heart-shaped sprinkles and an ombré pink icing. Super duper yummy with an abundant cheese frosting and a perfectly moist cake, this one scored big with both my mother and me.
This was my fave of the bunch, the Churros Apple Waffle ($12) served with Speculous Cookie ice cream. I added an extra plain waffle (+$2) on the side to go with it (just because) and thoroughly enjoyed this one. With the ice cream being super creamy and flavourful, it went along superbly with the cinnamon-topped waffle! (Major heart eyes here)
For those with more local taste buds, the Ondeh Ondeh Cake ($8.90) topped with coconut was a perfect choice. The frosting itself was abundant -as you can see it ran off the plate- while the pandan cake was packed with a punch as each layer was sandwiched with gula melaka for a more authentic flavour.
The Salted Caramel Popcorn Cake ($8.90) was not exactly what I had expected as the cream was too thick for my taste. The cake itself was not too sweet and quite pleasant along with the popcorn topping.
For drinks, I had the Nutella Brownie Milkshake ($12) which instantly grabbed my attention. Served with pretzels, chocolate wafers and an abundance of chocolate sauce, to say the shake was chocolatey is an understatement.
Finally, after what felt like an overdose of sugar, I got the Tea in a pot, English Breakfast ($6) to wash everything down, definitely helped to soothe everything out.
On my second trip here, I decided to get the Chilli Crab Pasta ($16) which I slurped down joyously. The pasta was tossed in a sweet and spicy sauce and served with succulent shrimps, mussels and even topped with an abundance of bonito flakes!
I happened to be in the company of Carbonara lovers and was smacked in the middle with 2 dishes of Carbonara Mussels & Shrimps ($16), one in fusilli form and the other in spaghetti form. Both equally yummy and hearty dishes.
What I Loved
The ambience here is definitely the main takehome for me apart from the wholesome dishes. A cosy atmosphere coupled with the comforting chatter of happy patrons really does help shape the character of the eatery. What more with friendly staff and servers, the service here is top notch. For sure, I will be heading down a second time for more of the homey noshery.
