FATCAT Ice-cream Bar

Getting here was a bit of a stir-of-a-moment decision. Vaguely recalling that one of the Instagrammers whose feed I regularly stalked (because her bakes/food photos are so nice!!! haha) just opened a new café in Bedok, I suggested going there after lunch at Nakhon with Chow! After all, it would be almost a dream come true to get to finally taste what you've only seen in little squares for months.

So our ever-reliable sense of direction brought us to FATCAT Ice-cream Bar, sandwiched between old provision shops at the void deck of a block of HDB flats. Very hipster.

Upon entering, we were greeted with a fridge case boasting an array of ice-cream/sherbets. All the flavours sounded so interesting (butter beer!), and the friendly staff joked that we could "try all if [we] want[ed]"...maybe he wasn't joking, because they kept letting us sample flavours without any hint of irritation/annoyance at our indecision, haha! I guess people were more cheery, because it was the second official day of opening of FATCAT!

Not having done our research properly, (besides, all the existing reviews were sponsored advertorials anyway) we didn't know of the existence of the salted egg yolk sauce on charcoal waffles! Instead, we ordered a scoop of passionfruit and pistachio ice-cream on a regular waffle.

It was so good!!! The passionfruit was tart and tingly while the pistachio was rich and creamy. Not the best combination together, but definitely stellar flavours on their own. The waffle was also crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside - enough to satisfy any waffle craving! The cinnamon sauce drizzled over the waffles complemented it really well too, keeping it from being plain. I really enjoyed every single morsel of it. :-)
