There are only 20 items on the menu, ranging from Meatball Pasta and Tomato Basil Pasta to Tandoori Pizza and Mutton Noodles Soup Sup.
For those who like tomato-based pasta, I recommend the Meatball Pasta [$8.90]. The tomato sauce is neither too sweet nor too sour, coating each strand of pasta evenly. I personally find the pasta just a little too soft for my liking, but the soft “meatballs” made from tofu makes up for it.
I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty the Hawaiian Pizza [$9.90] turned out to be. The square-shaped pizza base is topped with tomato sauce and various vegetables such as diced green bell peppers and pineapple (the pineapple is the reason why it is called Hawaiian Pizza instead of Vegetable Pizza). The mozzarella cheese even tops every slice and pulling apart the oozy cheese is half the fun. The square pizza base is nowhere as thick as Pizza Hut’s pizzas, but I think this pizza will taste even better with a super thin base like those used in Yellow Cab Pizza Co.
Nothing special about the Rojak [$5.50] except that the youtiao pieces are extremely crispy it’s almost like eating crackers.
Besides coffee such as Cappuccino and Mocha, there is Hot Chocolate for those of us who don’t drink coffee. If you want something a little more exotic, go for Vintage Tea [$3]. There are 2 flavours to choose from Pure Ceylon Black Tea Lemon and Pure Ceylon Black Tea Cinnamon. The staff recommended Pure Ceylon Black Tea Cinnamon (top-up $0.50 for an iced drink), saying that many customers order it. Nothing really special about it, just black tea with a hint of cinnamon to it, but it does make for a refreshing drink on a hot day.
Hotcakes Cafe also sells eggless cupcakes and cakes which look pretty good.
Hotcakes Cafe is a fusion cafe that sells not just one cuisine, not two cuisines, but three cuisines. There is something for everyone, whether you are Chinese, Indian or Malay.
