Located relatively near Beauty World MRT, via the downtown line is Nook. Famed for their DIY pancakes. I chanced upon this place, while looking for a supper spot at 10pm on a monday. I had previously passed by this cafe on a monday night and saw that it was closed. It seems that the management has changed and they have decided to open on mondays. Great news! Since majority of the cafes in Singapore tend to be closed on a monday, after a hectic weekend.The menu seems to have most of the common hipster food options. I wasn't too hungry and decided to just go for a savoury waffle, a batter of pancakes and thai milk tea.1. Pandan Pancake Batter $10 (with one free topping)I decided to go for pandan batter. They gave us a whole bottle which you can easily squeeze out the pancake batter onto the hotplate to cook. The pancake cooked quited easily on the non-stick pan. It was fun drawing out stuff on the hot plate, but it wasn't quite as fun to eat. The pancake tasted rather doughy, even after cooking for a long period. They didn't taste like pandan. Even with the provided chocolate rice, the pancake was pretty unedible for me.I had to use the syrup that came with my savoury waffles to try and add flavour to my pancakes to make them more edible. I'd say, order this if you have kids with you, or if you just want to draw stuff and write messages to your friends. For $10, I'd rather you just order another plate of cheesy waffle fries.2. Cheesy Waffle Fries $9.80+Loved the cheesy sauce that was generously drizzled over the waffle fries. The waffle fries were crisp on the outside, but they were not served warm, but rather room temperature. I was okay with that. The cheese sauce made my day!3. Thai Milk Tea $3.80+The thai milk tea was interestingly, served in a bucket of ice! It tasted smooth and not too sweet. The taste was rather familiar, reminding me of a certain thai milk tea I liked to drink that has outlets in city hall and sembawang. It was a refreshing and cooling drink,. 4. Savoury Waffles with bacon, coselsaw and scrambled eggs ($16.20+)Savoury Waffles $6.80, Scrambled eggs $2.80, Bacon $3.80, Coleslaw $2.80The waffles were pretty good. They were crispy and airy on the inside, they weren't dense or cakey. Perfect, just the way I like them. Together with the syrup, my supper cravings were satisfied.The scrambled egg had a truffle aroma and taste and they were so good. I would totally order 2 servings of this scrambled egg with waffles on my next visit. The bacon was juicy, salty and sinful. The coleslaw was decent.Overall : A decent chill out spot on a monday night, the pancakes were a let down but the waffles were a refreshing surprise. Definitely coming again for more waffles and scrambled eggs! continue reading

The place isn't too hard to locate since it is also near many other different restaurants. We were seated fairly quickly since there wasn't many customers. My friend and I were seated at a table near the cashier so we weren't at the main area. We ordered the pancake mix with one being strawberry farm and buttermilk. There were quite a number of toppings like M&Ms, there was just a tiny bowl of maple syrup and one tiny block of butter. The servings of the toppings were really small. Firstly, everything came without plates and utensils, no forks no knives so we requested for them and they took so long to notice us, just because our table was not in the usual view. Furthermore, they also took a while to bring our plates to us and we had to request a second time since they forgot to give us our utensils when they gave us our plates. Is it really that hard to remember that one table requires both plates forks and knives. Mind you, the place wasn't exactly super crowded I must say. Then our pancakes just weren't cooking so we had to request again and then again they took super long just to notice us. By then, my friend and I were really unhappy with their service.To add on, their pancakes weren't superb and you can get sick of them after a while. There is fun in making them but to me, that is like the only perk, you might as well just do it at home. Just buy a pancake mix and cook in your own pans. That will be so much cheaper and easier. We were so unhappy and it wasn't super filling, we went out for Indian cuisine after that, so much cheaper and worth it. continue reading

I love this self-made pancake place. the concept is just very interesting to me.their pretty menu.we ordered 2 diy pancake flavors (total is $20 for it) and they are red velvet and banana. scrambled eggs and sauteed mushroom as toppings for out pancakes! they taste delicious especially the sauteed mushroom. very tasty!we also ordered bacon slices and turkey ham as additional sides. so we started to use our red velvet pancake paste (red) and banana pancake paste ( in yellow) to start designing our pancakes! here are some of our artwork.pancake minion! my and my friends had lots of fun playing and decorating our own pancake. Although the pancake taste were mediocre, we will definitely be back because of the innovative idea of designing our own pancake. their staffs are also very friendly and would explain to menu to us.The total cost for this meal was $39 which i find it quite reasonable. continue reading
