Great news for fans of Kaffles, it is back operating at The Laneway Market every Friday and Saturday. The collaboration sees Kaffles selling their signature waffles and ice cream at the cafe, complementing the savoury dishes at The Laneway Market.
Laneway Cuppa 3.8/5
For something different from the usual latte and capaccuino, I had the Laneway Cuppa ($6) which is infused with homemade coconut and black tea extract. The coconut essence provided a nature sweetness to the cuppa which was light and refreshing.
Truffle Fries 4/5
For some light bites, a good start is the Truffle Fries ($12/$16) which is perfumed with truffle oil and topped with grated parmesan.
Salt & Pepper Squid 3.5/5
The Salt & Pepper Squid ($12) was another delectable snack bites that was both crispy and bouncy in texture. The seasoning was on the light side though. It is best to pair it with the sriracha mayo for a lifted enjoyment.
Chicken Breast 3/5
Moving to the mains, we tried the Chicken Breast ($19) which comes with sweet corn puree, sauteed shimeiji, basil oil, balsamic honey glazed and lingonbeery preserve. I like the fact that the kitchen was able to give live to a simple poultry dish. Unfortunately the chicken was a little under cook or this will be a beautiful dish.
The Gambas ($20) is quite an unique dish. The squid ink pasta is given a different interpretation with the used of capellini, sesame shrimps and squid. Shrimp jus is poured into the plate of pasta as if the diner is having a bowl of prawn noodle soup.
Signature Dashi Mushroom Risotto 4.5/5
One of my favourite dishes at The Laneway Market is their Signature Dashi Mushroom Risotto ($20). The fluffy rice was well infused with the beautiful dashi stock, complemented by the earthy and crispy mushroom. Topped with a soft poached egg, it added additional shine to the bowl.
Thai Milk Tea Kaffles 4/5
Do save some space for the dessert. Kaffles has changed the waffle's recipe and it tasted even better now. There are three different types of of Kaffles available on the menu. They are the Thai Milk Tea Kaffles ($13.90), Speculoos Kaffles ($12.90) and Nutella Kinder Bueno Kaffles ($12.90).
Speculoos Kaffles 4/5
Among the three waffles I tried, my favourite is the Nutella Kinder Bueno Kaffles. The buttermilk waffle was crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. What I enjoyed most was the nutella sauce drizzled on the vanilla ice cream and buttermilk waffle.
Nutella Kinder Bueno Kaffles 4.2/5
Do note that Kaffles is not opened every day. It is only available on Friday and Saturday from 6pm onwards. The addition of Kaffles to the menu has given diners more reason to visit the cafe again.
Note: This is an invited tasting.
