Baole Desserts, near Toa Payoh MRT Station, has one of the most interesting rosti you’ll find in Singapore. This newly opened kiosk offers Taiwanese-style desserts similar to that at Black Ball or Nine Fresh Desserts, but the real draw is their wallet-friendly potato pancakes, which are priced from just $5.90.

Reviewers online have described Baole Desserts’ pancakes as being like rosti, starting with a base of shredded potato. It’s beefed up with cabbage and egg, and drizzled with sauce, here resembling Japanese okonomiyaki instead. 

Start with the savoury Signature ($5.90), which is also the cheapest rosti on the menu. It stars a sunny side-up, sweet onion, and mozzarella cheese. You can even add toppings such as onions, extra cheese, and egg, priced from $0.50 an ingredient.

If you’re feeling indulgent, try their Seafood Mentaiko ($10.90), topped with prawns, squid rings, and bonito flakes, then finished with mentaiko sauce and mayonnaise, like a Japanese-inspired pizza! 

For a fancy snack, go for Flaming Beef ($9.90) or Cappin Duck ($11.90)━the former has beef cubes and mozzarella cheese, while the latter features slices of smoked duck, accompanied by capsicum slices. There’s also 3 Way Chicken ($8.90), topped with a trio of chicken floss, chicken sausage, and popcorn chicken!
