Revelry is a beautiful cafe that’s nestled along Lorong Kilat, and it specialises in waffles. The aesthetics are on point and you’ll be greeted with a different vibe in the day and at night.
During the day, there is plenty of natural light in the cafe and a wall garden in the back that you can admire. At night, the numerous paper lanterns that hang from the ceiling illuminate the space with a warm glow.
Revelry is known for its amazing waffles, and was also featured on our list of the best waffles in Singapore. What brought us here once more was a unique combination of a burger and waffle, known as the Revelry Signature Burffle ($18).
The Revelry Signature Burffle ($18) is made of Belgian waffles, beef patties, tomatoes, and animal-style sauce (sauce made with a mixture of condiments, including mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, etc).
Everything about this dish was perfect, and strangely, it felt like a very ‘healthy’ alternative to a regular burger, perhaps due to the fluffy and crispy waffle being less dense than a regular bun.
What really made the dish stand out though, was the animal-style sauce. Not only was the sauce utterly delicious, it complemented the melted cheese and made the well-seasoned meat patty taste even more succulent than it already was.
The burffle was delicious, but I also wanted to try a waffle dessert. I chose On Cloud Nine ($15), which is a waffle that’s decked with cotton candy, ice cream, toasted marshmallows, and popping candy, after being coated in lemon curd.
Eating this waffle was an incredibly messy, albeit tasty affair. I had no idea that the marshmallows served were toasted and all gooey inside.
In a matter of seconds, I was grappling with my cutlery that had amassed a congealed mess of marshmallows, cotton candy, and some waffle crumbs. So here’s a tip: cut the waffle first, and not the marshmallows.
Taste wise, I thoroughly enjoyed the combination of melted marshmallows and creamy vanilla ice cream on the waffle. The crispy and gooey textures were unique and pleasant.
I recommend getting a Cappucino ($4.50) to accompany your On Cloud Nine as the bitter notes of the Allpress Coffee, which Revelry imports from Australia, will balance out the sweetness and end your meal well.
If cotton candy is not so much your thing, consider getting At The End Of A Rainbow ($8.00). This is a homemade flowerpot tiramisu, garnished with fresh flowers that make it look like you’re holding an actual plant.
The tiramisu is made with rum, coffee liqueur, and Allpress coffee. The layers of cake are heartily drenched in this mixture and complemented by light and airy mascarpone before being dusted generously with cocoa powder.
Even though it is enjoyable and so Instagrammable, the portion size is a little bit too small to warrant the $8.00 price tag, so this is something to splurge on only if you love tiramisu.
Revelry serves scrumptious Belgian waffles that I would happily eat plain, but the dishes such as the Burffle and On Cloud Nine are very innovative and delicious – definitely worth a try.
