Good news to our Muslim community as there seem to be an increase of Halal certified cafes springing up at other parts of Singapore apart from Bugis/Arab Street area. This new Halal certified cafe is all about sweet and savoury griddlecakes, with a local touch to it.

After celebrating my parents’ 32nd anniversary at Adventure Walk (Bedok Reservoir), I decided to give them a treat at the same time furthering my cafe venture!

The Benedict ($15) – 3 Pancakes, slices of Smoked Salmon, Greens and Poached Eggs with hollandaise.

Generally, Sarah’s pancakes were a little dense rather than light and fluffy. Portion was towards a meal in itself, so it was fit for sharing for a time such as this, Tea Time.

The chocolate chips in the MJ was interesting as it boosted the flavour. Apart from that, the rest was just calories.

The Benedict, the hollandaise was…odd or different or poorly done? I can’t decide. Help me with that.

On top of that, there was a hint of vinegar while eating the Poached eggs. Perhaps too much were added during the “poaching” process.

You may like to try out other creative delights such as the highly recommended Al Istanbul ($14) which are stacks of grated potato pancakes with slices of smoked Turkey Ham and the Ala Dol ($12) which is a chendol inspired crepe.

Overall, Sarah’s pancakes weren’t the best in town, however, it is a gem for a Halal certified cafe in the East of Singapore!
