Froyoo Waffle

When I first saw Froyoo at Novena Square 2, the overall concept of this dessert outlet reminds me of Ministry of Food - My Izakaya but somehow or rather it is only after a few months after its opening before we dropped by our first visit...

Froyoo

I haven't really found a liking to korean food due to its extreme taste of kimchi... Basically sour and spicy food don't appeal to me...

Anyway, decided to drop by Froyoo for a dessert fix and we sat near the entrance of the store... Playing Korean drama OST, it seems to be a nice place to unwind but the air conditioning can be quite cold... This place also serves the main course from Seoul Yummy which is adjacent to Froyoo so occassionally you will smell the hotstone bibimbap and hotplate BBQ meat...

Froyoo Waffle
Fruity Froyoo Waffle, served with either Frozen Yoghurt or Vanilla Soft Serve and assorted fruits ($9.80++ with 20% discount)

The seats we were on overlooks the dessert bar and interestingly, we saw the Korean staff whisking and mixing the waffle batter on the spot.

Hmm... Based on the smell diffused from the waffle iron, we deduced that this is going to be an eggy one... True enough, unlike the light and thin crisp cake, this was a chewy and springy waffle...

Since I am a fan of Liège waffle, I felt that the waffle offered by Froyoo lacks the fragrance and the syrup drizzled on the waffle was too much thus making it plain springy and overly sweet.
For a price of $5.80 with only syrup and butter, I would prefer to drop by Sun Moulin, U.d.d.e.r.s or Gelare (on Tuesday) for curb my cravings...

Having seen the pastry chef prepared the platter, i thought that it would be impression. Alas, this was not to be. It simply lack the fragrance and is way too egg-y. I guess if you like Gelare's waffles, you would be find this terribly disappointing. On the other hand, if you compare to the egg-y sort of New York New York, this is simply too plain. Overall I would only recomend this if you are like us, doing a waffle special :)

LOL. I was warned against trying froyoo lol. :P

Hmm... so your next theme is waffle. More calories heehee. Ok... now you must really go pop by Tom's Palette for their wholemeal belgium waffle. There are 2 types, original sweet or Cheese stuffing savory type. There might be garlic herb stuffing now I'm not sure. And then of coz YOU MUST eat Tom's Palette's ice creams. This month they have pineapple tart, tau sar piah, pumpkin & wintermelon and luo han guo flavors for CNY! The tau sar piah, believe it or not, is from Little Red Shop at Vivo, formerly 611 tau sar piah at Vivo.

Yay to more waffles and ice creams! Sorry I get hyper wheh I talk about Tom's hehe. :)

Ice: Geez, didn't know it was tat bad to this extent... We didn't find it that lousy, just that the standard doesn't justify the price...

I definitely drop by Tom's, I know it has always been your favourite ice-cream outlet... So that is a place that will never go wrong :)

Fen said...

Yeh, have been opened for quite some time... and I am definitely popping by Tom's and Haato, the only question is when? I heard to shed the tonnes of calories from eating all this man...

Hmm... I was looking through your waffles label. Seems that you've tried alot around the island. One place to check out is Cottage Waffle Place at Suntec. I've heard many good things about it. It's cheap too and there're many combis to choose from. Nice place to chill too and there's fondue! :)

Fen said...

Yah... I have been to Cottage waffles once before starting the blog and I have to admit that it was one of the better few I have tried...

Despite going round the island for waffles, there is still alot which I have not tried so looks like I got to travel a fair bit...

Thank you for keeping a lookout for me... Thinking of where to go is always the toughest...

Since you like liège waffles, maybe you can do a take-out from Sun Moulin when you're at the Hokkaido fair. The waffles are really not bad, crispy and nice especially if you can get them to do fresh ones for you.

Fen said...

Yea, I do like Sun Moulin's waffles... especially when it is freshly baked, I guessed that will still be one of my favourites despite trying so many...

But the plain ones are better than the chocolate coated ones... the hard chocolate fudge does make the texture tougher...
