Everyday I’m waffling! Just joking. The waffle craze is apparently not dying yet, seeing that another form of waffle has just popped up. Hvala Waffle Bar is offering not round waffles, not square waffles, but thin waffles on a stick! While the waffles do come with a stick, you may request for it to come without or even cut into smaller pieces for sharing.
This waffle bar at the basement of 313@Somerset is operated by a husband and wife pair, Benmin (featured above) and Lynette. The waffle batter is mixed by hand and are categorised into “Fruitalicious” and “Timeless Desserts.”
We ordered every flavour that they had! However, if you would like to be creative, you may customise your own waffle, starting from $2.50 for a basic waffle and $0.50 to $1 for each topping.
From left clockwise: Berries Delight ($3.80), Strawberry Balsamico ($3.80), Crème Brûlée ($3.50) and Apple Cinnamon ($3.50). My favourite among the four has to be Apple Cinnamon. The fresh apple slices are topped with salted caramel and cinnamon power, and then rest atop the waffle with pastry cream. The crème brûlée one was also pretty interesting, flame-torched with orange crème.
Top down: Tiramisu ($3.80), Bella Banana ($3.80) and Smurfy S’mores ($3.80). I am not a chocolate person, but the chocolate flavours here are good. If you like chocolate, you should try the Smurfy S’mores which come with chocolate fondue, flamed-torched marshmallows and graham crumbs. Same goes for C is for Cookie ($3.50, featured in the picture below), served with chocolate cookie crumbles and freshly whipped cream.
Should you want to try how the waffle tastes like without all the frills, you can opt for Original Hvala Waffle ($3), served with maple syrup, icing sugar and cocoa powder.
Real Vanilla Soft Serve ($3), served with a choice of chocolate fondue, maple syrup or salted caramel sauce. You may also add $2.50 for a cup of vanilla soft serve to accompany any waffle. I loved this! It is indeed icier than the usual soft serves, but this is the real stuff, with vanilla beans.
- Tea Time Special: Get a free vanilla soft serve with any waffle purchase between 3 to 6pm.
