A well-known Malaysian café has made its debut in Singapore, bringing a touch of Sarawakian charm to Neil Road. This café hails from East Malaysia and has garnered a following across Sarawak, with branches in Sibu, Miri, Bintulu, Kuching, and Sarikei. It boasts a minimalist, desert-inspired interior that's perfect for those seeking Instagram-worthy aesthetics. Coffee aficionados will be pleased to discover a range of house-roasted coffee, freshly baked bread, and a delightful assortment of unique waffles.

At this café, waffle enthusiasts can choose between two types of waffles: the classic plain waffle or, for an additional dollar, the black rice or nian gao option, which has a crispy exterior and a chewy interior.

A menu standout that's sure to tantalize your taste buds is the Bak Kwa Waffles. This delectable option allows you to pick your preferred waffle base, which is then generously topped with succulent chicken bak kwa, flavorful chicken floss, crispy cornflakes, and a dollop of creamy goodness. The chicken bak kwa brings a delightful touch of caramelized sweetness, perfectly complemented by the sugary crunch of cornflakes. For those with a sweet tooth, the Berries Love You waffle is a burst of colors and flavors. It boasts a medley of fresh, juicy berries, a generous sprinkle of crunchy granola, and a drizzle of premium strawberry sauce that adds a luscious sweetness to every bite.

If you're not in the mood for waffles, this enticing menu also offers delectable alternatives. Take, for example, the Code Classic Carrot Cake. It's a delightful treat with a captivating contrast - a satisfying crunch on the outside gives way to a moist, gooey center filled with generous walnut chunks. A thin layer of icing and a sprinkle of pistachios on top complete this irresistible masterpiece.

For those seeking heartier options, the Avocado Mushroom choice takes center stage. Imagine house-made sourdough, toasted to perfection, generously crowned with creamy, freshly mashed avocado, a savory medley of mushrooms, and bursts of flavor from cherry tomatoes.

And to quench your thirst and elevate your caffeine experience, be sure to savor the Vanilla Cream Nitro Brew. This cold-brewed coffee is a revelation, crafted from premium Honduras beans that have been thoughtfully fermented in whiskey barrels. The result is a brew that tantalizes your taste buds with a gentle acidity while maintaining an undeniably delightful flavor profile.

This café's arrival in Singapore brings a taste of Sarawak's culinary delights and adds a trendy spot to the Neil Road scene for coffee and waffle enthusiasts alike.
