In the heart of the Bedok HDB area, you will discover a gem of a place that will satisfy your need for waffles and ice cream.
FatCat Ice Cream Bar is a wonderful addition to the Bedok community which just opened last 1st January 2015. Considering this is an ice cream bar, I guess that explains why it called FatCat, hehe. I am still looking for any cat roaming around the place. But no sign of any cat. But I do like their tagline: Made from Scratch. Get it. Scratch. Scratch by a Cat.
The place is quirky and give off a very cool vibe which would attract the younger generation crowd, the hipsters and the yuppies. The place however is really small and you have to queue sometimes to get a table.
You get to choose from a variety of flavours. I believe they have 18 flavours. You can choose between the Standard or the Premium flavours or if you want to be adventurous, you can try the Mysterious Flavour where FatCat will choose for you. Allow them to surprise your tastebuds.
There are two waffles to choose from. You can get the Gourmet Waffles ($6.00) or the Original Waffles($5.00). You can add in scoops of ice cream on top (Standard $3.9 – single scoop ; Premium $4.5-single scoop).
Gourmet Waffles with Butter Beer Ice Cream with Caramel Syrup and Salted Egg Sauce
This charcoal-colored waffles is thick and crisp. I would be very happy if there was more of the caramel syrup. There is no maple syrup in sight. The salted egg sauce ($1.00), for me, with the waffles is a bit weird taste combination. So I just had my waffles without the salted egg sauce. It was my first time to the butterbeer ice cream. It tasted like beer. Beer-drinkers would love this but unfortunately, I don’t like the taste of beer.
Original Waffles with Chocolate Syrup and Cheesecake Ice Cream
I prefer this than the gourmet waffles. It was crisp as well. I love the chocolate syrup though I still want maple syrup with my waffles & pancakes. I like the cheesecake ice cream that I chose.
Ice Mocha Cafe ($4.50)
This coffee is a bit too weak for me. I guess I felt there are more ice and milk in it.
Iced Sweet Potato Latte ($7.50)
This is a very interesting drink. I like it! It is very refreshing and sweet. I can feel the fiber-richness of this drink.
I would love to come back here and try their mojito spheres and other flavours of the ice cream. Do visit if you are around the neighbourhood.
