Besides pancakes and waffles, I also like crepes and buckwheat galettes. I have given up on finding a place in Singapore that serves good pancakes, and decided that I will make them at home. I get delicious waffles at Assembly Coffee whenever I feel like having one of these crispy-fluffy things with a huge dollop of ice cream. (I just bought myself a waffle maker on Qo10.com so am looking forward to making some soon.)
I used to satisfy my crepe and galette cravings at Creperie Des Art, this cosy Brittany creperie at Prinsep Street. I loved their buckwheat galettes, sweet crepes and apple cider. They make an excellent crepe suzette – which I usually order for dessert. It is a pity that the owners of Creperie Des Art have given up the business. I hope they know that they are sorely missed. Thankfully, there is still Entre-Nous at Seah Street that I can go to for galettes and crepes.
I am so gonna eat my fill of galettes and crepes when I am in Paris in November!
Recently, a friend recommended that we try the galettes and crepes at The Daily Roundup. The cafe is located in a bright and spacious unit in The Working Capital at Keong Saik Road. After casting our vote early in the morning on Polling Day, we headed to The Daily Roundup for breakfast. They open at 9am on weekends, which in my view is the latest time that a cafe serving breakfast should open for business.
Where is everybody? We had the entire place to ourselves for quite a while. Not that we were complaining.
TBH ordered the ham and cheese buckwheat galette and I chose the plain crepe with yuzu butter and vanilla ice cream. The food is quite good – not as tasty as the ones at Creperie Des Arts or Entre-Nous but good enough for a repeat visit.
