Belgaufra is a family-owned business since the 1950s, producing Liège waffles meant to be cooked in front of the customers. What sets Belgian waffles different from the usual run-of-the-mill waffles is that the waffles are made from a dough and not a batter. Till today, Belgaufra's waffles retain its traditional goodness and taste.

We visited Belgaufra Waffle Cafe at Tai Seng area- a low key, nondescript cafe serving a variety of savoury and sweet waffles. The simple cafe also serves a small selection of soups and salads. Beverages and Gelato are also available, the latter mainly used on sweet waffles.

The Chicken Cutlet on Salad (SGD$9.80) comprised of chicken chop, lettuce, cucumber slices, halved cherry tomatoes, strawberry slices, hard-boiled egg and a small piece of crispy-edged Belgian waffle. Presentation was very different from anticipation, and we thought there was a mistake between "cutlet" and "chop" the way the chicken was prepared.

My Big Wafflous (SGD$10.80) was made up of fried egg with bacon. The waffle was fluffy with crisp-laced edges, but the presentation of everything was way off - the way the limp bacon strip was laid, and the unappetizing-looking fried egg. Worse of all, my side order of Dark Chocolate Sorbet (SGD$4.50) was tossed onto the plate just like that, melting onto the savoury dish, casting a sharp contrast in taste.

Just come for the waffles - order them as plain as you would, if I may suggest. Or order the lovely waffles from their website and prepare your own ingredients / side dishes at home.
