Shrove Tuesday @ Blk 94 Toa Payoh Lorong 4

Shrove Tuesday (also known as Pancake Day) is the day before Lent (the Christian season of preparation before Easter) begins and is celebrated in some countries by making and eating pancakes.

Shrove Tuesday

This visit to Shrove Tuesday was a memorable one because it was the first time D and I went food-hopping together. I had brought him to Ocean Curry Fish Head (for their very awesome Peranakan-style fish head) two blocks away and just thought we should check out this hip cafe for an after-meal treat.

We were the first customers at noon on a Sunday.

The menu that was just next to the entrance.

No pancakes were served here but they did have waffles which probably sufficed as they were still ‘pancakes with abs’ haha.

They also had a limited menu of savoury dishes which weren’t really that exciting. As for desserts and light bites, we could just pick from whatever was available on display.

Haha, my eyes sparkled when I stood in front of this delightful array of yummy looking stuffs.

Obviously, one particular cake stood out for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

The carrot cake and brownie looked good too.

That’s where we could see the espresso blend of the day. And oh my, how pretty was this vintage yet whimsical looking tiled table!

I enjoyed the Flat White (S$4.50) that was rich, smooth and velvety and it left behind a slightly sweet aftertaste.

The Ice Cafe Latte (S$5) was also an aromatic blend and didn’t taste too watered down by the amount of ice in it.

Shrove Tuesday Rainbow Cheesecake

And yes, this was the cake I was aiming for the moment I set my eyes on it. Because I love rainbows and this was just lovely! The colours were so bright and happy and they just cheered me up!

Shrove Tuesday Rainbow Cheesecake

Every colour of this Rainbow Cheesecake (S$7.50) represented a particular flavour – yam, vanilla, orange, strawberry, pandan, blueberry and lemon. The texture was quite dense and the flavour of cheese was also rich and robust. I just loved how it’d melt in the mouth and then you’d get that burst of flavour. I suggest to savour each colour at one time as each had its own distinctive flavour that paired really well with cheese. Also it’s better to share the cake because it can get quite sickly after a while.

We also ordered the Waffle (S$5) with 2 scoops of premium Toasted Pistachio and Mao Shan Wang Durian ice cream (S$2.50 per scoop for standard ice cream plus an additionalย S$0.80 per scoop for premium flavour) so it cost S$11.80 for the whole thing.

Both ice creams were delicious. I particularly liked the pistachio one because it was so full of nutty flavour. The Mao Shan Wang was not bad too though I still like the one from Udders that had a stronger durian flavour. The waffle itself was crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside and tasted a little bit salty which gave a good contrast to the sweet ice cream.

Well, I wouldn’t say it was the best waffle I had (prefer Creamier’s) but it was still a darn good waffle that was worth the calories.

I will be back for the coffee and also to try the other cakes. I have the Tahitian Lime Custard Mousse Cake on my next to-eat list ๐Ÿ˜‰ Prices here are NETT – no GST, no service charge ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you Linda ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m doing fine – just going through post-op recovery. And best news is – I’m cancer free ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m still experiencing pain and discomfort so would need to rest a couple more days to a week before I can freely move my neck and sit upright without support. Will be back soon!! And thanks so much again for the support – really appreciate everything ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love this cafe’s waffles! seriously! I don’t recommend any other products only the waffle! when did they started not charging GST & Service Charge? I just recently thought that I might not want to repeat the same cafes I’ve been to but without the svc charge & GST I’m very tempted to hop onto a bus & head right down to have their waffle with a couple scoops of premium ice creams! Thks for the review Geri! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Kelly, thanks for stopping by. They have NETT prices all the while. I don’t think they have ever charged GST or service fee. Are you a coffee drinker? I do like their coffee beans a lot – much to my surprise, lol. And yes, their waffles is not bad too. Worth giving yourself another treat there one day ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Hi ! Lovely place here. The Rainbow Cheesecake got my attention. Now when we have pride festivals going on in so many places , this is the ideal cake to serve then.
    have a great day
    Oli
