Brunch @ Hatter Street

July 26, 2014 in European (cafe) by thywhaleliciousfay

My girlfriends and I stay in the North area, so we were excited to learn that Hatter Street has opened in Kovan. However, Hatter Street is more of a dessert cafe. As such, my girlfriends and I came over after our lunch at Nakhon Kitchen.

And the cafe was packed when we walked over for desserts at 2pm. We were fortunate to have a table cleared for us within 10 minutes.

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Whoa’ffles, $8.90 (above) – Of the 3 flavours, we went with pandan ice cream with gula melaka sauce. Instead of the typical (grid) waffle, we were presented with a bigger version of the liege waffle. Which was good news as I liked liege waffles for its denser and chewier texture. While ice cream was dense and creamy, I could barely taste the pandan from the ice cream.

2) Smoked sawdust pudding, $5 (above) – When this was served, the staff proceeded to open the jar for us. And the first thing we noticed was the smoke. The staff went on to explain that the dessert is created to resemble our praying experience at the temple. Thus, the smoke which escaped the jar when it’s opened. I think it’s pretty creative as they took it further such that we could even taste the smokey scent in the ‘sawdust’. But of course, eating too much of the ‘sawdust’ did feel a little empty on the tongue.

3) Oh-my 天, $7.50 (above) – Cookies & cream brownie with that “oh! Oh! Orbo” ice cream. I did not like this. Somehow, the texture reminded me very much of moon cake.

4) Cafe Latte, $4.50 (above)

If one is in the area and is looking for a place to go to for part 2, do drop by Hatter Street for their waffles and innovative ‘smoked sawdust pudding’! I suggest having a nice Thai lunch at Nakhon Kitchen before having desserts at Hatter Street which is a small cafe concentrating on desserts.
