Haato @ Ridgewood Close

06 November 2008


I read about this little place in my one and only food guide book from Popular Bookstore. It seemed pleasant enough and was certainly a good place just to sit around for while, have a simple dinner and dessert before getting back to work. Most of the customers here are from the private condominium just walking distance away, and it's not exactly easy to get here by public transport. So if you want to get here, do drive, it'd make things simpler.

Add: A friend asked, if no car, how? Haha... I've checked and there's three other places you guys might want to try for Haato Gelato.
1) Wheelock Place #02-18A
2) Liang Court Shopping Centre, Meidi-ya Supermarket, Unit B1-50
3) Serangoon Garden Village, 9 Portchester Avenue, Unit 01-02

Chicken Katsu Don: 7/10


Pretty normal, nothing to shout about. Tastes almost like the one sold in school, but at least is not as oily.

Roast Chicken Spaghetti: 7.4/10


Daphne had this and kinda liked it. The chicken marinate was good.

Plain Waffles with Butter and Maple Syrup: 8/10


Daphne was cooing with delight over the crispiness of the waffles, as well as the good serving of butter, which is her fav. I read some reviews online about the waffles not being crispy enough, and were quite cold, but to be honest the waffles we had were nowhere near those reviews. They came hot and crisp.

Single Scoop Chocolate Hazelnut Ice-Cream: 9/10


Oooooh la la. Very very smooth ice-cream, and has a natural sweetness taste to it, even when it's nutella. Love it. The ice-cream cone didn't taste as good though, they could do better with a new type of cone. This is still one of the best gelatos I've ever tried and tasted in Singapore.

And oh, was just surfing around on the Net. Apparently there has been complaints about the cone as well! Change to waffle cones and bowls Haato! =)

Service
Friendly.

Price
About $7.50-$7.90 for our mains
Around $4 for the desserts

Place
5 Ridgewood Close
Unit G1.

Have wanted to try this place out but I am one of those that don't drive. Any idea does the branch at Wheelocks and Liang Court serve waffles? I vaguely recall they are take-away ice-cream counters.

Heya, I did a check. It seems that the waffles are only served at Ridgewood and Serangoon Garden Village.

I'm sure you may have better recommendations for waffles though! I usually get waffles bowls at Ben & Jerry's, but maybe their waffles are good too?

Thank you for checking up for me. Looks like I got to drop by Ridgewood then...

Ben and Jerry's waffle are the soft kind, not the crispy soft. It is made nice because of their ice-cream. I have an entry on that. Just look for waffles under category. You should see it as the 4th entry =)
