SweeT.Rex which is known for its affordable $5 Souffle Pancakes at Alexandra Village Food Centre has opened a café concept outlet at International Plaza (facing Guoco Tower).

So instead of braving the heat in a food centre, you can enjoy this in air-conditioned comfort.

The Alexandra Village outlet is opened only during the weekends, from 10am till 3pm (or sold out).

The Classic Souffle Pancakes is at a higher price of $9.80 now, but they have upgraded the ingredients and now comes served in a plate (instead of a box).

I did wonder about this location at International Plaza, a mixed development office building in the heart of Tanjong Pagar known for quick fuss-free eateries.

Can office workers hungry for time, wait for 20 minutes or more for their pancakes? There is also limited seating available as well.

There is an expanded menu with offerings of five different Souffle Pancakes – Classic ($9.80), Oreo Chocolate ($12.80), Banana Caramel ($13.80), Matcha ($13.80) and $14.80.

Note that as pancakes are only prepared upon ordering, the minimum wait-time is about 20 minutes.

For the Classic, I enjoyed that the texture was indeed pillow-soft and not too sweet. Some may find this on the airier side and something eggy flavour, but the fresh custard cream helped made the taste not so ‘monotonous’.

With a bigger kitchen space, they can afford to experiment more and have more variety in offerings.

This time I tried their Matcha Souffle Pancakes ($13.80) with comes with Japanese red bean paste, and house-made matcha sauce and matcha custard cream.

I found that the texture was soft and airy, in fact a softer than most of the other pancake brands in Singapore.

The matcha-ness could have been more pronounced, and I would have personally preferred the red beans to be softer and more mashed.

There are also offerings of various forms of Cheesecake, including Basque Burnt Cheescake, Macta Burnt Cheesecake, Tiramisu Burnt Cheese Cake, Triple Layer Cheesecake, to Lemon Rare Cheese.

A slice goes for $4.50 to $6.50, while a whole cake is priced at $35 to $50.

The icing on the cake (pun not intended) is there is a Buy-1-Get-1-Free promotion for sliced cakes from now till 28 February for dine-in customers.
