Just when I was getting a tad bored with the variety of waffles we’ve got in places like Gelare and neighbourhood bakeries, I realised that I’ve not gotten round to trying The Sweet Stone Parad’Ice’s Liège Waffles [*****]. That changed last night when I decided to have dinner at Old Airport Road Food Centre before the Osmonds’ concert. Snaking our way through tables of hungry folks, my mum, sis and I ended up beside my favourite chee cheong fun stall – Freshly Made Chee Cheong Fun at #01-155. Little did I know that Sweet Stone Parad’Ice over at Golden Mile Food Centre had opened a new branch at 1 of my favourite hawker centres! They’ve got different sets to choose from: Set A consists of 1 Liège waffle & a Belgian chocolate dip ($2.50), Set B comes with 2 Liège waffles & a Belgian chocolate dip. I had Set B after a really heavy dinner of orh luak (oyster omelette), kueh pie tee, chee cheong fun, otah and BBQ-ed chicken wings.
The simple combination of thick-crusted waffles served fresh and piping hot with decadent Belgian chocolate in a bowl is simply divine. Expecting my waffle to taste more than a little buttery, I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t taste dry or buttery. Even after leaving it to cool for more than 15 minutes, the waffle still tasted great. The Belgian chocolate dip not only oozed wholesome cacao goodness, the best part was it wasn’t watered down to a thin blend the way some dessert places do. I’ll definitely make another trip down on an emptier stomach to sample other things on the menu. In addition to their signature waffles, they also serve their very own gelato at $1.80/scoop, and regular chocolate fondue (with that yummy Belgian dip) from $7.80 onwards. Those of you in groups might want to share the Royal Claypot Fondue (for 2-3 people) priced at $14.80..it should look like this photo on the right.
With more ‘Western’ stalls such as Modern Italian Food (Old Airport Rd Food Centre, #01-35) and Mien (Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre, #02-133) joining the ranks of local food haunts, our hawker food experience looks set to scale new gastronomical heights.
