Clinton Street Baking Company @ Purvis Street
Just look at that stack of fluffy goodness. The Banana Walnut Pancakes ($18) at Clinton Street Baking Company were moist and each piece had a thin base of mashed bananas that kept the entire combination tantalizing throughout. It doesn't get boring, especially with their signature maple butter and I found myself going back to this repeatedly even when there were other dishes on the table. This is seriously my favourite pancakes in Singapore now!
Clinton Street Baking Company hails all the way from New York and we popped by an hour after their soft opening's slated time of 9.05am and we were greeted with a full house. Thankfully, the wait wasn't long and we were soon shown to our seats
Iced Latte - $7
The friendly barista popped by my table to tell me more about the coffee beans they use after I asked a server about it. The coffee has a slightly sour note and a more bitter finish but it was enjoyable nonetheless
Sugar-cured Bacon - $7
Crispy and shining bright on the plate, the bacon impressed with its sweet flavour that doesn't overwhelm and I really like that it wasn't greasey. It tastes like bakkwa, just thinner and crispier
Chicken & Waffles - $21
The one dish that we knew we had to get before we even stepped in was this. The famed buttermilk chicken was a tad dry and tough in my opinion but the vanilla buttermilk waffle wowed me. It wasn't crispy anymore, perhaps due to our extended period of phototaking, but its texture was really something else. It's soft, cakey and savoury. Tasted good on its own and even better with the warm maple butter. This is supposed to be available only after 1130am as stated on the menu but we were lucky that it was already available at 1015am!
Buttermilk Biscuit Sandwich - $13.50
I've always been a sucker for buttermilk biscuits and I like that Clinton Street Baking Company has paired it with savoury options. However, I felt that the scrambled eggs were over-cooked and it was hard and dry. And this made the pairing of the buttermilk biscuit and eggs feel really dry. The housemade tomato jam was an absolute delight though! And I thought the hashbrown was done pretty well. That rich potato taste was noteworthy
I can only see Clinton Street Baking Company getting more popular as the days go by so do pop by soon to avoid long snaking queues and have a taste of possibly the best pancakes you can find in Singapore!
