Nirvana Dessert Cafe is a hidden gem for HK egglet on sticks, souffle pancakes & mochi in flavours like tiramisu & taro

by Christabel Tan

Be it bingsu, gelato, or croffles, we can always count on dessert cafes to deliver. However, it’s hard to keep track of all the new cafes and eateries that pop up ever so often — some even fly under the radar.

Take this sweet (literally) and relatively hidden spot, Nirvana Dessert Cafe in Bugis, for instance.

Although there is no shortage of dessert cafes in Bugis, this two-storey cafe in Haji Lane is run by a chef from Hong Kong specialising in decadent, IG-worthy desserts with Japanese influences.

The cafe is perhaps best known for its handcrafted waffles and souffle pancakes, desserts that have truly withstood the test of time.

If you like your pancakes soft, jiggly, and fluffy, head straight for The Original Souffle Pancake (S$12), served with whipped cream, fresh berries, and choice of syrup (salted caramel, maple, or chocolate), with the option of adding on a scoop of homemade ice cream (+ S$3).

Go even bigger with the Cream Brulee Souffle Pancake with homemade ice-cream (S$18) — it is topped with custard and sugar, and torched till perfectly caramelised.

Speaking of ice cream, take your pick from classic flavours like Mango, Matcha, Pistachio, and Black Sesame, just to name a few.

Although not as trendy as before, light and crispy HK-style egglet waffles are still a hit with the crowds at Nirvana Dessert Cafe. You can’t go wrong with The Original Egglet Waffle (S$10), topped with fresh berries, marshmallows, ice cream, and a choice of syrup.

For something even easier to eat on the go, the adorable Waffle On-A-Stick (S$6) comprises two sticks of light and crispy egglet waffle in flavours like Original, Charcoal, Matcha, and Chocolate. I don’t know about you, but food on a stick always tastes better.

But if you’re seeking an alternative to the usual cakes, waffles, and ice cream, go for the cream-filled Japanese-inspired Mochi (from S$3). These soft and chewy palm-sized confectionaries come in unique flavours including Tiramisu, Taro, Matcha Redbean, and Charcoal Black Sesame.

Unsurprisingly, the drinks menu has a variety of coffee, soda, frappuccino, and of course, boba tea options. Crowd favourites include the Mango Boba Tea with Cream Cheese (S$6), Strawberry Frappe (S$6), and Iced Dalgona Coffee (S$5.50).

If you’re the type who needs sweet treats to stay complete, it’s high time you paid Haji Lane a visit!
