Little Pancakes

IMG_7036

To be honest I am a little addicted to pancakes recently. I have yet to see anyone who would actually not like pancakes. This probably explains the trend of opening eateries which only serve pancakes. Little Pancakes is a relatively new kid on the block that opened months ago, joining old favorites such as Strictly Pancakes at Prinsep Street.

Two cute little pancakes (Mr and Mrs Pancakes) are the mascots together with a kiddy concept Little Pancakes deliver. They serve bite-sized, mini pancakes instead of the bigger ones we usually find in Singapore. This concept eventually attracted people of all ages.

The savoury selection of pancakes from the menu includes Big Fan of All Day Breakfast ($10.9), Ham & Cheesy ($8.5) and the last one which we had – Chick & Cheesy ($8.5). Basically, they are pancakes with glazed sausages and cheese and accompanied by potato salad and greens. Over the moon was I to find cheese sandwiched in between the two little pancakes as well. It was something like a cheese hot dog bun, only better.

The sweet pancakes boast a bigger selection including Going Nutella For You ($8.2) and Simple and Sweet ($6.5). I had one of their most popular item there – Gimme S’more Oreos ($8.2). The Pancakes are stacked into two towers topped with crushed oreos, sided with toasted marshmallows on oreo cookies and a scoop of chocolate ice-cream. I would definitely give it a higher rating if the marshmallows were in between the stacked pancakes instead.

There is a Singaporean section of the menu as well featuring red bean and kaya but I did not get to try them. Apart from that, they serve ice-cream and coffee as well.

Overall, I pretty much like their style of mini pancakes, unique flavours and plating really speaks of creativity which I adore. The pancakes have their hits and misses but I do not see any reason why you should not make a trip down to this cosy corner at Upper Thomson.

Privé Bakery Cafe

I have been left a pretty good impression of Prive Cafe & Restaurant by many bloggers who had spread the word about its delightful brunch items and mains from the dinner menu. Since then, I told myself I would be there. So after a few months the effort finally succeeded as made my way to the scenic Keppel Bay.

Prive is divided into 3 sections, Prive Grill (dinner), Prive Waterfront Bar (late nights) & Prive Cafe (brunch, lunch). Prive Cafe serves comfort Western food including selections from all day breakfast, burgers, pastas, salads, cakes and shakes.

Despite the heat, the choice was made to munch outdoors simply because the view of Reflections @ Keppel Bay, the marina of yachts and clear skies of dotted white on blue seemed to be there for me to admire at. I loved their menu – how it seemed that they managed to use the perfect font for my liking.

We opted for the DIY Omelete ($15), Homestyle Pancakes ($13) and The Ultimate Fish & Chips ($19).

I chose smoked leg ham to be in the omelete and it was a simple but delightful fare. Alongside with roma tomatoes and toast I would not mind waking up in the morning to the smell of it.

The pancakes at Prive have been widely known as not just any pancake, but to my disappointment the pancakes were overdone that day hence not being as thick and fluffy. Was I not a starved soul on that sunny afternoon I would have called for another order. As I recount my experience I do yearn for another plate of those.

Fish and chips was nothing fantastic to rave about which I thought was a pity. That only fed my desire to find the best fish and chips in Singapore.

The selection of cakes, tarts and other desserts were mind-boggling as all of them sounded as equally good as the other on the menu. In the end I decided to play safe and go for the chef’s recommendations of a slice of Carrot Cake ($7) and Oreo Mud Pie ($12).  The Carrot Cake could be a contender of Cedele’s signature carrot cake. Prive’s version was less dense. On the other hand, the oreo mud pie was awesome. Coffee flavoured ice cream was sandwiched between generous oreo bases with chocolate sauce. An explosion of sweetness, it reminded me of architectures of so and so pyramid. Only I call it food architecture.

Prive. My expectations are 90% satisfied. Until then we shall meet again.
