Rabbit Hole serves savory waffles too, such as Mac & Cheese waffle – your classic childhood pasta with a cute twist. The mac and cheese is inside the waffle, which is topped with spicy powder.
7. Excessive sweets indulgence, hence: The Sugarush

Among the other white shophouses, The Sugarush is splashed in an eye-catching red – sure to tempt you to take a second look, just like its desserts.
Our recommendation is Black Crumble – you can get your choice of waffles or pancakes, served with ice-cream and Oreo bites. This dessert not only looks super yummy but is actually really delicious, with ice-cream that melts on the waffle and creates a perfect taste when you savour it.
Sugarush is also well known for its Macarons. These sweet little colourful Macarons will make you think twice before you eat because they’re oh-so-pretty but once you’ve tasted them, you’ll ask for more.
