Waffles Galore at MEMO


Established on 6 June this year, MEMO is the ultimate haven to unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. A petite gourmet pastry cum deli-by-day and relaxing bar-by night, it is the coolest place around Robertson Quay. You can grab a coffee, tuck into freshly made snacks and desserts, enjoy a champagne, wine or devilish cocktail and relax over chill tunes.

Can't wait to indulge in the waffles

Here's my review of the waffles:

Black and White

One of the best sellers at MEMO, this waffle is also my personal favourite. The decadent chocolate sauce blends well with the fresh bananas. Every mouthful is filled with heavenly goodness. Simply irresistible.

Rating: 9/ 10

 C.H.A (Cheese, Ham and Avocado)

This is quite a refreshing change from the usual sweet waffles. C.H.A is a sandwich waffle brimming with wholesome ingredients such as cheese, ham and avocado. Avocado is extremely good for the skin, beneficial for the heart and helps to treat serious problems such as arthritis and diabetes. This savoury waffle is tasty and is a meal on its own.

Rating :9/ 10

TA.MA

This healthy waffle is perfect for those who wish to indulge but do not want to pile on the pounds. It is topped with tuna, egg white, cheese and tuna and low fat mayonnaise. Great for a light meal or for a picnic.

Rating: 8/10

Berry-li-cious

If you like fruity flavours, this waffle will definitely make your taste buds tingle with joy. It is generously topped with blueberries and strawberries and drizzled with raspberry purée. The berries are high in antioxidants and protect you against health conditions such as heart disease and cancer. Other than its excellent health benefits, the sweet and tangy flavours of this waffle make it ideal for an after dinner dessert.

Rating: 8/10

Sweet Devotion

Those who have a sweet tooth will love this waffle. The combination of vanilla ice cream, marshmallows and caramel sauce is awesome and leaves one craving for more. Personally, I find this a little too sweet. Not good for the waistline but the saccharin flavours will satiate those with a penchant for sweet treats.

Rating: 7/ 10
Asian Nutty

An all-time favourite, this is simply bursting with flavour. The ingredients used are simple, just kaya and peanut butter. Delicious but you will need to head for the treadmill after consuming it.
