Waffletown, Balmoral Plaza

Waffletown (#01-02 Balmoral Plaza, 271 Bukit Timah Road, tel : 6836 6536) definitely looked old school as an establishment with barely discernible air conditioning. It reminded me of fast food restaurant from a couple of decades back with a service person at the counter taking orders just a couple of meters from the kitchen crew, yet using a microphone to get the orders processed. The food was well.....ordinary. As greasy fried chickens went. We don't have much doing fried chicken beside KFC and I thought it would be interesting to see what they're about.

There wasn't anything good enough to warrant another visit. The small meat patties from the burger with cold buns taste like the frozen variety made with an unidentifiable meat substance which is something that I don't normally like about burgers. Even McDonalds is better if you're talking about taste. The waffles were rather ordinary as well and they charge for extra maple syrup and butter. Oh well. Now I know.

It's a pity you didn't like the waffles there, because its one of my fav as they are freshly made.

You should try the Waffle Ala Mode that comes topped with Blackberry Puree, Ice Cream of your choice and Whipped Cream.

This is totally irrelevant to the food but relevant to the location.

There is a very interesting chinese dining place right below the basement and it's called 上海浦东 kitchen.

Lovely dishes from the chinese!

Try their 小龙包,梅菜扣肉, 炸豆腐, 酸甜鱼肉 and do a review!!!
