The Coffee Code has nian gao and bak kwa waffles on Neil Road
If you’re on the lookout for another place to add to your cafe-hopping list, look no further! The Coffee Code, a popular cafe in Sarawak, Malaysia, has unveiled their first outlet in Singapore at Neil Road.
Getting to this new cafe couldn’t be more convenient━it’s situated in the middle of three different MRT stations: an eight-minute walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT Station, a nine-minute walk from Outram Park MRT Station, and a 10-minute walk from Chinatown MRT Station.
Sporting a minimalistic, neutral-toned interior, this cafe is great for those who love IG-worthy aesthetics. Look forward to a selection of house-roasted coffee, bread, and an assortment of unique waffles here.
A must-try is their Bak Kwa Waffles ($18+), which comprises a flower-shaped waffle topped with chicken bak kwa, chicken floss, cornflakes, and a quenelle of whipped cream. Although these ingredients appear to be unlikely pairings, the sweet and savoury notes blend harmoniously to create a delicious dish.
For an additional $1+ each, add black rice or nian gao to your waffles. While the former makes your waffles a little crunchier, the latter gives them a chewy, QQ texture akin to mochi.

You can’t go wrong with their Berries Love You ($17), which features your choice of waffle, crowned with fresh strawberries and blueberries, then drizzled with strawberry sauce.
For something hearty, go for Avocado Mushroom ($17+), which stars freshly mashed avocado spread on house-made sourdough toast, topped with mushrooms, cherry tomato slices and served with a side salad.

Don’t miss out on their coffees too! Select from their hand-brewed or nitro-brewed specialty coffees, with prices starting from $8. Otherwise, get their regular black or white coffees, priced from $5.
Those not big on coffee can get a drink from their soda series or their non-coffee selection. We recommend Emily Berries ($7+), a refreshing fruit soda with fresh blueberries and strawberry chunks, and Signature Chocolate ($6/$7+), a sweet treat featuring creamy milk and rich chocolate.
