When I first stepped into Wimbly Lu, my first impression is that it resembles Open Door Policy, a lot. From mismatched vintage looking furniture, kitchen at the side, exposed brick walls to the glass ceiling and wooden flooring on half the premises only, it really resembles. However, ikea products can be spotted here and there so I guess the difference is that this place seems more homely and child friendly.
On a Saturday night at around 9pm, the wait was about 20minutes. The area is not big and business is rather brisk given the very obscure location. Driving is a must because the nearest bus stop is a good 15 minutes’ walk away.
Menu wise, this place’s focus is obviously on the desserts and sweet stuff. They also carry a range of fruity beers and ciders. Despite the array of desserts, I already knew what I wanted to try before coming.
Every table has a unique tea light holder and I really liked this one. How pretty!
Strawberry-Lime Cider – $14.00+
The ciders cost $14 for 500ml. I really liked this one. It was fruity and refreshing.
Strawberry-Wheat Beer – $10.00+
The Belgian beers cost $10 for 250ml. This beer was quite palatable with distinct strawberry taste.
Waffle with ice cream – $8.50+
This was what I was here for – the waffle! I had it with chocolate ice cream and chocolate sauce. The waffle was crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. The style is like classic waffles (think Gelare, A&W), not Belgian waffles. I am a fan of waffles and I can safely say that the one here is a sure pass. What makes it stand out is the chocolate ice cream. Of course, since they are a chocolatier, that their chocolate would be good. The drawback is that the scoop of ice cream is really tiny.
Eton’s Mess – $5.00+
This one really looks like a mess. It has whipped cream, meringue and some berries I think. I didn’t really try it.
Root Beer Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream – $6.00+
I am no fan of root beer so I didn’t really try it either.
Blackout – $6.00+
This is one really black cake, it turned out black on my camera. It is essentially a chocolate cake, a very rich one. However, it was not as moist as Awfully Chocolate’s.
Food: 8/10 (waffles)
Overall: not a bad place for waffles!
