5 The Moments along Tanjong Pagar Road breaks the momentum of a street lined with salivating smells of Korean BBQ and fried chicken. The colourful outlook and gelato signage were screaming out to me on a hot and sunny afternoon.
They have a variety of waffles with ice cream (approx $11) starting with the all familiar buttermilk as your safest bet, to red velvet if you’re feeling more adventurous. They also have lava cakes in either chocolate or matcha flavour. If you don’t feel like having sweet stuff, they do have light bites (approx $9) such as Korean Fried Chicken. Heh but seriously who will order fried chicken here when there are established fried chicken eateries just next door?
Matcha waffles with ferrero rocher ice cream.
The waffles, while crispy, were too thin. I’m the kind that will cut according to the waffle lines into little squares before scooping a spoonful of ice cream into those little squares before gulping them down. Sadly for me, the waffle squares didn’t hold up after being cut.
The salted caramel ice cream was rather weak too. I’ve tried many salted caramel ice creams, and this is one of the weaker ones. The taste and texture really didn’t impress. The ferrero rocher was all right.
On a whole, the waffle with ice cream wasn’t worth it. They also don’t serve water and do not provide serviettes. Put it bluntly, it’s homemade food at restaurant prices. I’ll leave it to you to be the judge if you ever drop by.
P/S: Stop trying to figure it out. “5 The Moments” stands for “Find The Moments”.
