I’ve got to admit honestly that I belong to the
weird rare group of people who don’t fancy waffles and pancakes at all, but after trying the waffles at The Mayor of Tiny Town, I’m officially a convert (to a waffle fan; still no like pancakes, haha). Diverse menu; from pasta and soups to sandwiches and all-day brunch, not forgetting a wide selection of both sweet and savoury waffles as well!
The waffles here really rock; golden brown, crispy yet fluffy. Whatever the chef uses in his batter recipe obviously works as the waffles were so ambrosial that just inhaling the scent made me giddy with happiness. We gobbled up the waffles but left the crab mayonnaise untouched, didn’t like that crab sticks were used instead of fresh crab meat. I DIY and found my perfect savoury waffle combi: waffle + smoked salmon + scrambled eggs. Yummy max. Aglio Olio was so-so, had better elsewhere. One look at the salmon and I thought it was overcooked but it was nicely seared, and the eggplant puree was gorgeously smokey! Of course, the unique blue butter was a head turner, heh. It’s a pity that the ice creams used in the desserts are of low quality.. Otherwise, I’d have scored the cinnamon apple waffle an absolute 10. Ended our waffle-ful experience with the specialty dessert, an interesting giant affogato topped with cotton candy, which I believe is a first in Singapore!
