Oblong @ Serangoon Gardens – Red Velvet Waffles

We planned to have a Korean dinner in town, but our plans were nicely ruined by the long queue at the restaurant and extreme inefficiency sigh. Lacklustre dinner, but we headed to the all-time happening Serangoon Village for dessert. It was loud and crowded at night, and filled with young people. Pretty fun.

They do a variation on the normal waffles, serving up normal Buttermilk Waffles, Matcha Waffles and Red Velvet Waffles. My brother recommended the latter, and that looked the most promising too.

And I am glad to announce that the waffles did not disappoint!! Sure, the waffles itself are not extremely tasty, but red velvet is mostly food colouring and some mild chocolate flavour, which were obviously present in the waffles. I really liked the generous amount of cream cheese sandwiched between the two waffles, and it made cutting through the waffles such a delight. I could eat that like a sandwich! Cream cheese was slightly salty, slightly tangy, and matched so well with the crispy waffles.

We ordered a scoop of Salted Caramel & Pistachio Ice-Cream (premium flavour +$0.50) to garnish our waffles, but it seemed a bit odd. The ice-cream was rather sticky and chewy, and the salted caramel flavour wasn’t the strongest to me. But I was easily comforted with the presence of pistachio chunks in the rather large scoop.

Waffles alone are $4.70, and ice-cream is added on per scoop ($3.30). They also have waffle sets – waffles with a scoop of ice-cream, and a drink – for $10. Quite affordable if you ask me, and a fun place to be on a late night!
