Small Bites for cheap pandan waffles in Chinatown

We love discovering under-HDB food gems in Singapore, so once we were alerted of Small Bites by a reader, it was a no-brainer for us to check them out stat.

Rise: Under-HDB Pastel Cafe With Brown Butter Waffles And Black Sesame Cakes In Potong Pasir

The snack kiosk is a new addition to the sleepy Kreta Ayer estate, frequented by a mix of residents, office workers, and hungry students loitering in the area. As soon as Maxwell MRT Station opens on 13 November 2022, the takeaway stall will be right beside one of its exits.

Prices here are affordable, with pandan waffles going at $1.30 for the plain version. You’ll also find classic fillings of Kaya ($1.60), Chocolate ($1.60), and Peanut Butter ($1.60). The waffles, which lean on the thinner side, are made to order. Be sure to request for them to be made crispier!

They also have lesser-seen fillings such as Taro ($2.50) and Shredded Coconut with Gula Melaka ($2.80), though both flavours were unavailable during our visit.

On our second visit, we tried the Japanese Roasted Sesame ($2.80) filling, which was light yet creamy with a nutty fragrance. It wasn’t too sweet either, allowing the natural pandan aroma from the waffle to shine through.

Other than fresh waffles, the kiosk also offers handmade puffs. There’s the Curry Puff with Potato, Chicken, and Egg ($1.80), and Sardine Puff with Onion ($1.80).

The curry puff is buttery and flaky, with a satisfying crumble that melts in the mouth. Held within is a generous mish-mash of potato chunks and tender chicken pieces.
