Going waffles

There is this cafe in Yishun that sells charcoal waffles with ice cream. So good that I want to introduce.

I got hook on to waffles after my Korean encounter. I will keep the story of this encounter to a later blog, but let me first introduce you to the waffles’ culture in Korea. From the streets waffles along stalls in MyeongDong, to those you find around the quiet corner of DongDaeMun on peddlers’, to the very nice ones you find in Tom&Tom, Holly’s and Caffebene you will find waffles in all kinds of colours and flavour. I can go on and on about waffles, but I particularly like the pastry and waffles at Peter Pan Bakery, and also the one at Passion5 in Itaewon.

You can also find those traditional old fashion waffles that they bake and you eat it with red bean soup. One such store you can find in Insadong, the shop name I couldn’t recall but its easy to find, just along the Insadong old street diagonally facing Fraser’s Suite at Insadong.

Waffles is a lunch for many Koreans, who usually have sweet tooths, guys included. They made waffles into lunch menu, and one that is very special is the Holly’s diagonally across the Bulgwang MRT station, Line 5. The caramel they caramelized onto the waffles and the slight overbake texture goes well with the sunflower seeds and nuts and with Korean whipped cream taste so good with their house blend of Americano. Go try it.

Well, so to feature our very own waffles in Yishun, I must say this waffles really taste good enough that’s why I post it here to share with you.

I took a close up photo shot of the ice cream and waffle. The close up allows me to capture the finer details of the ice cream. We can see the unevenness of the scooped ice cream.

In addition to the photo, I decided to filter the photo with VSCO filter (f2) to creating a classy and warm vibe. This post edit will not make it look too far off the original stuff. Please check out my 2 other photos below, waffles I took in Korea.
