Rainbow pancakes, red velvet pancakes, bailey’s pancakes and design your own pancakes… The very idea of Nook already sounds way too exciting. What better way to spend a weekday afternoon than to doodle some pancakes with your friend, and then eating your creation? Hmmm.
Nook is out of the way at Lor Kilat, a few shops away from Carpenter & Cook and Udders. While there are many pancake shops in Singapore, people come all the way here because they are the only and first DIY pancake art concept in Singapore. Meaning to say, all their tables are customised with a griddle in the middle just so you can flip your own pancakes and make you own pancake art.
The shop name comes from the word “The Breakfast Nook” which actually is a term used by the Americans in the olden days. It is actually a small corner where the poor have breakfast in the morning, where they get to bond and have a nice breakfast meal together as a family. Over at Nook, they also want everyone to come in to have a good bonding session together over breakfast and pancakes.
If you are lazy, the Rainbow Pancake ($12) with 6-coloured stacks is a can-order, surely to send your facebook or instagram likes to a record high with the photogenic piece. As with all rainbow desserts, Uncle Daniel here says this is a tad too sweet for my liking, and too much sugar sends me on a food coma. (Read: Rainbow Cake at Le Chocolat Café)
The Red Velvet Pancakes ($10) is definitely their winning item, soft batter without being overly saccharine, with the cream cheese filling adding a smooth velvety touch.
If you want to do your art classes justice, or want to draw a face/write a name to eat, you can go for the DIY Pancake package.
A 2-flavoured pancake with 3 toppings will set you back by $28. I think it’s a tad steep but worth the price if you split the cost with many friends, because you can stay there for up to 3 hours and make many many many pancakes with the squeezer bottles provided.
Maameemoomoo and I decided that drawing pancakes is maybe not our forte. Make a guess what we created?
DIY pancakes is really quite a fun concept for friends and families with kids to play with. For the idler people like me, I would love to see more creations such as the classic stacks, chocolate banana, strawberry cream or anything with ice cream.
