Hatter Street: Fuss Free Waffles!

Hatter Street [212 Hougang Street 21, 530212]

We were just aimlessly scrolling through facebook when a waffle post comes up. Hatter Street Waffles, near Kovan MRT.

Sounds like a place I would have walked by several times in the past few months. If it’s that famous, I would have at least stopped and looked. But no impression leh.

Upon arrival, I realized why I’ve missed the shop a few times. It’s next to the famous Nakhon Kitchen in Kovan. It’s easy to lose focus on the queueing people of Nakhon Thai and then launch into a daydream of one day opening a nice little Thai restaurant selling Cha Nom Yen, Khai Tot, Tom Yam and Kuay Teow Neua… No wonder I keep missing this cosy little shop.

Cosy shop right next to Nakhon Kitchen. Check out the queue of people on the right!

A picture of the shop along Hougang St 21, just a few steps down from Mcdonalds, and next to Nakhon Thai. This is a nice little cosy place where you can sit down with a few close friends, stare at the roads and just talk about life.

Waffles with Salted Caramel and Vanilla Icecream

We ordered Waffles with Salted Caramel and Vanilla Icecream. The waffles were crispy on the outside, and fluffy on the inside. There’s a nice hint of milk as the waffles melt in your mouth,¬†which makes it very addictive. And the presentation looks very atas and good.

And as we all know, if you eat too much of milk flavoured waffles, you will get sick of it. We Singaporeans call it “gelat“. Obviously the folks that created this dish have realized this as well.. the Salted Caramel balances the “gelatness” with a tangy sauce that is half sweet, half sour. It tastes something like a mix between the sour of a young green apple, and a sweet red apple. I don’t know why salted caramel taste like apples, but it still tastes good! And it complements the milky waffles very well!

The ice cream just taste like vanilla la. But the three of them seems to work well together.. leaving behind a nice tasting dessert.

So how much does it cost? $8.50, enough to fill 2 satisfied stomachs. Check it out the next time you’re in the area!
