Wheat Baumkuchen @ Toa Payoh Central

The inconspicuous cafe at Toa Payoh Central is located at the back alley where KOI is located, opposite the HDB hub. Wheat Baumkuchen is known for their daily baked Baumkuchen. What is Baumkuchen? It is a layered cake made up of 15-20 layers of batter which when sliced reveals the tree rings effect. The Baumkuchen also comes in a variety of toppings and flavours.

In this post, I am not going to talk about their Baumkuchen. You can read more about their products on their website at

Today I am going to introduce you to their new menu, COOL NOODLE. This is probably the first in Singapore. A new concept of eating noodles in a healthy and cool refreshing way.There are 5 types of Cool Noodle available on the menu at $4.80 per plate and they are named as Dolphin, Polar Bear, Penguin, Seal and Reindeer.

The Seal Cool Noodle comes with white noodles in roasted sesame sauce with sauteed pork, tofu, carrot and cucumber. Initially I was quite sceptical how by simply putting some salad and cold noodle together can make a tasty noodle dish. After tasting it, I have to applaud the concept and the roasted sesame sauce really brought the dish together.

The Penguin Cool Noodle was the other I tried which comes with green soba noodles in roasted sesame sauce with shredded chicken, fried eggs, carrot and cucumber. It tasted as good as the "Seal".

I think the Cool Noodle concept will be received very well by the public especially the ladies. It is something new, refreshing and healthy. Most importantly, cheap and nice :)
