Griddy Gourmet Waffles @ Westgate, Singapore

Since Westgate opened its doors a few years ago, I have been frequenting Griddy Gourmet Waffles, a hidden gem specialising in waffles. Did you really think waffles are for desserts only? At Griddy, it's your standard Western cuisine. With a slight twist - just imagine having your burgers, with the burger buns replaced with savoury-sweet waffles. Ingenious.

Oh! For the wallet-conscious, their items are very, and really affordable. Most of their mains are priced around S$10 on average, plus you could add a few bucks to size up your meal with a drink and dessert waffle/chicken drumlets!


For starters, have a go at their signature Griddy Burger (below), composed of two beef patties, mushrooms, cheddar, sliced tomatoes, crispy lettuce, and completed with waffle fries. I was gonna add "succulent/juicy", but this trip was kinda disappointing when my patties came out slightly overcooked, delivering a distasteful combination of charred and dry texture that was unpleasing for both the eye and palate.


My other friend tried The New Yorker - a classic breakfast combination of sweet waffle, topped with a beef patty, cheddar, sunny side-up, and bacon. It is completed with salad and waffle fries. We felt that the bacon (probably turkey) was not done well enough, as was presented in the picture, whereby it is nice and crisp. Deceptive advertising eh?


Griddy Combo - a platter of almost everything thrown onto one plate, consisting of beef and chicken patty, sunny side-up, bacon strips, and waffle fries. I wouldn't even mention the salad (if you consider that one).


I love Griddy. 

The food used to be great, and I used to frequent it a lot more, until I noticed the gradual drop in standards. Quoting from their website: "At Griddy, we offer sweet and savoury waffles artfully crafted to be visual and gastronomic delights..." This is a promise to their customers. Perhaps the chef's mood was hay-wired on those days I visited, but there's clearly something that needs to be done before Griddy is off the grid. 

Oh, the pun.
