When you are racking your brains on what to do on the weekend with your kids, friends, or your SO, head over to Slappy Cakes situated in Grandstand in the Bukit Timah area. Here you can cook pancakes at your own table! The idea is to simply create, design and have loads of fun. Each table contains a high-quality non-stick griddle that is attached to the table.
This make-it-yourself place has a variety of pancake batters to choose from – Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Wholegrain, Zucchini and Buttermilk. The process is to choose your pancake batter, then the add-ons and finally the toppings. We ordered the Chocolate and Buttermilk pancake batter priced at $8 each. When you go as a group, you can order more batter mixes to share among yourselves. The Zucchini batter might sound weird, but makes a good choice if you don’t mind experimenting with new flavours. For add-ons, we went with strawberries, hazelnuts and toasted almonds and topped it off with homemade chocolate hazelnut spread. The squeeze bottle makes it very easy to dispense the batter. Complimentary butter is provided on the side if you want to add more taste to your pancake. You can be creative and go crazy by trying out smileys, alphabets and get pancake doodling!
Apart from the pancakes, their menu has all-day breakfast items. From the classic favourites section, we went for the ‘Potato Soup’ which turned out to be great comfort food. It was a creamy soup with chunks of baked potatoes, leeks and onions. It was rich and velvety and made for a nice start to the meal.
If you are a fan of eggs in your breakfast, try the ‘Vegetable Scramble’ served with mixed greens and toast. My husband ordered this dish and he was quite satisfied with it. The scramble consists of roasted zucchini, leek, corn, capsicum, onions and scrambled eggs topped with blue cheese. If you are not a fan of blue cheese because of its hard-hitting taste, you can ask it to be removed or replaced while ordering.
To beat the heat, we tried the ‘Pink Thyme Lemonade’ which was refreshing and very good. The pleasant colour added to the visual appeal of the drink.
On the whole, its a fun place for a brunch out with family and a good way to engage kids. And even as adults, we can be kids at heart and try out our artistic skills. Just for a different experience with fluffy pancakes, Slappy Pancakes is worth a visit.
