Located in the middle of Purvis Street, is this cafe called Clinton Street Baking Company. Its main outlet is in New York, United States. It is well known for its pancake and is known as "New York's # 1 breakfast spot" by Lonely Planet, as well as, "Best Pancakes" by New York Magazine (twice). The place was decorated in a traditional, clean cut look.The usual menu was presented in a booklet.Besides the usual menu, there is daily special items on the board,as well as, dinner special items.Boozy S
vanilla ice cream, bourbon, salted caramel sauce
Without alcohol ($10++ right)
Pretty strong in the alcohol. The drink tasted very rich and creamy, but could not taste the salted caramel in it. Crab Cakes ($15++)
Two crab cakes, served with classic remoulade, and house slaw.
The crab cake was moist and creamy inside with chunks of crab meat in it. Chicken & Waffles ($21++)
with honey-Tabasco sauce, a crispy Belgian vanilla buttermilk waffle, and signature warm maple butter.
The chicken was served char burnt, which made one quite disappointed. Some parts of the batter was just too hard and bitter to be eaten. One had to remove the batter coating in order to eat. Although the staff saw that we had left much of the batter untouch when clearing the plates, no one asked us about the food. The waffle was not the usual crispy and fluffy type. Instead it was eggy and soft. More like kueh kueh type. Not bad with the maple butter sauce. But not really my type. Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter ($18++)
Served with wild blueberries.
The first which I notice when the dish was served, was that the pancakes were super thick in size. The pancake was fluffy and soft, with a kind of eggy taste. Some may felt that the blueberries was a bit too sour. Nice but could not take in more a piece of pancake. It was way too much for me. Overall felt that the food was overrated. Maybe I was expecting too much but it just did not blow me off. Although the place looked sparkling clean, I was surprised to see a certain small animal running through the dining area. No wonder the place had placed a notice that it would be closed early for maintenance on the coming Monday. I soon lost my appetite after that and trying to vomit everything out.
