It is rare to have artisan cafes that serve delicious food at Ang Mo Kio. The Workbench Bistro nailed it with their interesting creations of food ranging from lava egg beef burgers to colourful flavoured homemade waffles with ice cream.
What’s more, there is a gigantic waffle dish named S’moreffles Supreme containing a stack of 3 coloured Belgian waffles, 4 scoops of ice cream topped with marshmallows, strawberry jam, whipped cream and loads of Oreos. Unfortunately, it was unavailable at the time when we were there.
[Food Challenge]: Finish the entire S’moreffles Supreme dessert within a time limit of 30mins to win $50.00 worth of The Workbench Bistro vouchers! More details on the challenge here.
Menu and Prices:
- EGG LAVA BEEF BURGER
This is one of their new burger which just not too long ago added into the menu. Sandwiched between the grilled bacon and bun is the juicy peppery beef patty which tastes fantastically good! The watery lava egg which can be found in the middle of the beef patty enhances the savoury taste of the meat and melted cheese.
This burger is a must try when you visit this cafe!
- RED VELVET WAFFLE WITH ICE CREAM
Cost: $9.50 (with premium ice cream)
Ice cream and waffles has always been a great combination of desserts, and this cafe makes it even better with flavoured waffles of various colours. This crispy waffle has a hint of red velvety taste, a drizzle of chocolate syrup and some soft marshmallows.
They have a wide variety of ice cream flavours and it was so hard for us to choose the flavour. All looks so good! In the end, we manage to decide on the sea salt caramel as our ice cream. The salted caramel is not as salty as you will expect, it taste more caramel than salt. It was a nice combination with the red velvet waffle. We totally love the presentation of the waffle here and they are a work of art. 😍
The Workbench Bistro is very creative when it comes to food combinations, and these creations are definitely delicious. However, in terms of service, there is still room for improvement.
We are still very excited to come back here for their supreme waffles and their ice cream. 👍
