Creamier's Waffles & Ice Cream (Said to Be One Of the Best in SG) @ Block 128, Toa Payoh Lorong 1 [Singapore]

Singaporeans love their waffles and it's only a matter of time that foodies come out with a list of places that clearly mark out the best waffles in this little red dot. 

I have had my fair share of waffles and many a times, i thought the traditional (cheaper) type sold in Prima Deli with its buttery flavour and irresistible aroma would have won with a pretty wide margin. Nevertheless, the search for good waffles never stops and that's the reason why i was at Creamier last week. 

Friends living in the old estate of Toa Payoh have previously commented that the enticing aroma of waffles often made them stop their footsteps right outside the shop and damn hell was that true! 

Featuring handcrafted ice creams made using their own recipes and unique production process (not sure what this means although it didn't quite bother me so long the eventual result turns out to be good), the flavours at Creamier ranged from normal types like black sesame to creative ones like Earl Grey Lavender! 

Upon ordering and paying, you would be given a recyclable cup. 

Please do not be as naive as me. I honestly thought we would be given a free cup of coffee for each order!! This cup, in actual fact, served its purpose as a waiting number for the staff to recognise and deliver your freshly baked waffles! Do note that there is a 15-minute wait time for the waffles. 

With excited anticipation, we were delighted to be greeted by the two thick chunks of waffles sitting on a puddle of maple syrup and chocolate sauce, and topped with two scoops of ice cream of our choice; in this case, Earl Grey Lavender and Sea Salt Gula Melaka!

Another pretty one with Madagascar Vanilla and Roasted Pistachio. 

As far as ice cream is concerned, i am most satisfied with what i had in Creamier; the Madagascar Vanilla was terribly delicious, Sea Salt Gula Melaka was addictive and Roasted Pistachio would have been given a thumbs-up by my nut-crazy mom! My least favourite was Earl Grey Lavender which had a light earl grey flavour yet made me feel like i am eating melting lavender soap!

Now coming to the waffles; texture wise, it was perfect with an exterior crust that gave out the much needed "crunch" as i sliced it apart, and a fluffy interior that wasn't dry at all. 

Taste wise, i am afraid i personally found them to have too bland a flavour and wonder if it was purposely made this way for those who asked for ice cream with waffles since the combination turned out to be very enjoyable for the three of us!

Additional Information

Fret not, many customers were seen having their desserts at the playground area! Beware of birds; you would not appreciate the extra topping.
