Buttermilk waffles was crisp and light. Both the msw & mandarin clementine gelato tasted rich and has a smooth texture. Definitely a hidden gem in the ang mo kio neighborhood.

Beside we tried their coffee, me and @adibeevince share Ciabatta ham and cheese toast.
The toast is good, outside crispy inside soft and chewy, with ham and cheese.
💰$6.5 for the toast.

Was looking forward to try this, but pity it didn’t impress. Broth was thin and could be a lot more flavourful, especially since it’s Penang prawn noodles. They were pretty generous with the ingredients and they do have quite a number of other noodle options. Skip this, maybe those might be better!

We had our dinner there on a weekend and it wasn't too crowded. Beer was good; I was surprised to learn that they brew their own beer since the place didn't look much like a bar! Asked the staff for a recommendation and tried a light, malty beer. Side of spam fries was great as well, but the mains we ordered could be better.

Both rice bowls had very hard, dehydrated rice, as if it has been kept and reheated for a few days.

Girl: The Spicy Mentaiko Salmon bowl came with pickled vegetables and edamame which was a nice touch, but Mentaiko was a bit too sour and light for my liking, missing the creamy, full-bodied flavor of Mentaiko.

Boy: Chix and Cheez felt overbaked, as the layer of cheese was quite hard when served.

I think it's a nice place to grab some beers with friends, but the food has room for improvement.

Back again for their Beef Brisket and so glad it didn’t disappoint at all. Really smoky, succulent and tasty! But if I had to nitpick, I wished it was less oily…

Had really fluffy bombolinis from @thefatkidbakery and we were just in time to get the CNY specials before they ended! We had black sesame, peanut crunch, apple cinnamon and oolong. I liked all of them and enjoyed the black sesame most! 😋

An abbreviation for Italian Bombolonis, which is fitting because the sweet filling explodes in your mouth when you eat one!☺️

Founded in 2020 by a 24 year old self-taught baker, @thefatkidbakery offers an array of signature bakes, which ranges from sourdough breads to croissants, eclairs and flavoured bomboloni!🤤

Comes in boxes of 4/8/10/12, here’s what I tried…😬
👉Earl Grey - SGD4
👉Blueberry Cheesecake - SGD4.80
👉Sea Salt Maple - SGD5
👉Vanilla Creme Brulee - SGD4

Swipe left👈 to the end to check out their All Year Round flavours!

With a very slight Tang, their signature bombolonis were light, fluffy and not overly sweet. Among the flavours I tasted, I particularly like their Sea Salt Maple and Earl Grey!

Is it just me or you guys also feel that the sugar coating was actually quite redundant…🤣

When you think of Sumo prawn mee you think of big prawns. But you may forget their other quirk - they don't have dry version. I'm not sure is it principle or lazy. Did the soup live up to it? It didn't make my list of the greatest, but it's very good. Even the chilli accompaniment is not the kind used in dry prawn mee. I give points for that though because eating them together was a new experience. Thank god for semi-peeling the prawns. Their bowls by default come with clams.

Got the Pulau Hitam and salted caramel popcorn. Excuse the photo - Ate it and was so impressed i decided to give a review.

Pulau Hitam ice cream is vegan yet manages to have a fairly thick texture. It actually has a deep coconut and sesame flavor, with chewy hitam rice bits.

Salted caramel popcorn has a more buttery and rich flavor compared to the usual caramel ice cream flavor.

The doughnuts are soft,fluffy and not sweet. The filling is towards liquid (so get prepare become messy), and I prefer more filling.
💰$17 for 4 doughnuts.

Recently checked out Sumo Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee, the sister shop of famous Sumo Big Prawn. This stall sells Hokkien mee, fried carrot cake etc and we tried the Hokkien mee. Was a little disappointed because we thought that these would be cooked fresher on the spot but the guy manning the stall simply scooped up some noodles leftover in an unheated wok and served it to us. Thankfully noodles were still warm. Taste wise it was decent too and had plenty of umami, but overall it could be fresher.
