Moosh – Lava Pancakes & Ondeh Ondeh Softserves, From Muslim-Owned Cafe At Tampines
This is mainly a takeaway kiosk concept located at the basement level, with a small dine-in area of 12 seats.
But no worries about searching for a place to rest within Our Tampines Hub, because there are a couple of communal areas in which students can be found studying (or mobile-surfing).
The menu offering is somewhat similar to their outlet at Haji Lane, using 100% Halal-certified ingredients in their softserve and toppings.
Outlet-exclusive items include Softserve with Molten Lava Pancake ($8 – $8.50) and soon-to-launch Kurtos Cone ($9 – $9.50).
What I find slightly perplexing is that the more expensive items, namely Molten Lava Pancake and Kurtos Cone, are exclusive to Our Tampines Hub with many young student customers, and not at Haji Lane where the café-hoppers and tourists can have higher spending power.
In terms of soft serve flavours, you can expect Strawberry, Blueberry, Nutella Brownie Cheesecake, Smores, Apple Crumble and bestseller Ondeh-Ondeh.
I decided to go with Strawberry Cheesecake with a single Molten Lava Pancake ($8).
The Strawberry Cheesecake Softserve comes with toppings such as Marie biscuit crumbs and strawberry sauce.
Any additional sauce or toppings is available at a top-up of $1.
Compared to Softserve Cup I had at Haji Lane, I find that the amount of toppings has decreased significantly and the flavour of the softserve is less distinct this time round.
My favourite is still the Ondeh Ondeh SoftServe (Regular $4.50/ Large $6) that comes with fixed toppings such as desiccated coconut and coconut flakes, with green pandan sauce drizzled on the walls of the cup and on the surface of the softserve.
Made with gula melaka (brown sugar) as the base of the Ondeh Ondeh soft serve, the sweetness level was just right and I could finish a large sized cup on my own without feeling too jelak (rich).
The Molten Lava Pancake comes in 2 different flavours: Nutella and Chocolate Peanut Crunch and is available for top-up at $4.50 per piece.
There is an estimated 15 minutes waiting time as each molten pancake is prepared upon order.
However, do not expect the pancake to be soft and fluffy, or the fillings within the Molten Lava Pancake to flow out like a Lava Cake.
Each pancake is piped with either Nutella or Chocolate sauce for indulgence and in addition, the Nutella Molten Lava Pancake comes with condensed milk for the extra sweetness
Kurtos Cone (short form for Kürtőskalács) which is also known as Chimney Cake will be available in the future here.
The European pastry is made using layers of dough and shaped like the rooftop structure which Santa Claus uses to deliver his gifts on Christmas Day.
