The Udder Pancake

Udders Ice Cream and The Udder Pancake is just right next to each other, and even inter-connected within the concrete wall of divider. Udders Ice Cream has a total of 5 outlets spread over in Singapore, but The Udder Pancake has only one outlet on its own at Bukit Timah. So don't get yourself caught in a mess for a meal but went to the wrong outlet!

The first interesting fact that caught our attention is the entrance. Shattered glass door and even trying to tempt you to break the glass door if you are in need of food. So now, can you imagine how many people have come to The Udder Pancake in verge of hunger? Just saying if this is real...

But it does make all of us pushed/pulled open the door with caution, as the effect seems so real!

The Udder Pancake has a lot of other interesting decorations inside, and how amazing it is for the team to have come up with such ideas. In the usual places, most would have head for the menu and start pondering over the food, but this time, most would be walking around the shop and looking at the interesting words and contents in it.

Who wouldn't?

If you think Bei and Bu are the names of the cows, read again...

The Udder Pancake's menu has one side full consisting of the 9 mains they have, and other side would be the drinks, bites, and cakes.

Of course, if you are craving for ice creams, it is readily available next door, which mentioned earlier is inter-connected. Ice creams can also be brought over to The Udder Pancake unit for consumption too.

Most of us had their signature chilled drinks, which are not disappointing at all. Mango Kaffir Lime Leaves ($5.90), Strong Iced Lemon Tea ($3.90), and Elderflower Gummy Bears ($5.90).

Mango Kaffir Lime Leaves is sweet and thick, and partially due to a mango-lover I am, I find it a refreshing drink. For the Strong Iced Lemon Tea, it comes with a small serving of melted sugar for preferential adding to the drink. Elderflower Gummy Bears is one drink that I had my doubts for. It was only someone in our group ordered this and comment its quite good, did I proceed to counter to order a second drink for myself. Yes, the gummy bears are hard but still chew-able as they are soaked in the drink. The fizzy soda water is also the reason I had my second drink drank to empty.

The Udder Wings ($7.90) is made up of petite mind-joint chicken wings, deep fried, and served with sweet & sour Thai chilli sauce. I wouldn't say it's amazingly delicious, but just passable.

Spam Chips ($7.90). Ever since I got in touch with Spam Fries, I will always give it an order whenever I have the option to choose. Hand-cut spam chips served with kaffir lime chilli mayo.

Initially, I thought it's like some potato chips, thinly sliced and fried. But it came like a normal home-cut luncheon meat from can. Simple, and easy homemade dish, never fails to make my stomach smile!

The Udder Shrooms ($12.90) made of crunchy deep-fried bacon-wrapped white button mushrooms, served with bacon chipotle mayo. We didn't really quite enjoy this side dish, and I would gladly opt for the The Udder Wings if I had to choose between them.

Crunchy outer due to deep frying, and button mushroom is a little juicy, but taste is still lacking in the overall.

Another dish that I will try not to miss out, is the Salted Egg Yolk Fries ($9.90). Thick-cut fries topped with salted egg yolk sauce, curry leaves, chilli flakes and toasted butter sugar cereal.

It tasted like something like cereal prawns, but with the salted egg yolk sauce that managed to pull me back from thinking I'm at a tze-char stall. It was awesome, but if I were to compare this with LeBan HK Cafe, the traditional type of Salted Egg Yolk Fries is still topping my list.

Pulled Pork Fries ($12.90) is shoestring fries topped with bourbon barbecue pulled pork collar with warm melted cheddar cheese, lime sour cream, sliced shallots, Jalapeno and chives.

As much as I wanted it to be, it didn't turn out to be fries made of pulled pork before I read the menu. It's more like a normal fries, but of course with extra sauces, and a chunk of delicious pulled pork on it. Very similar to KFC's Cheese Fries concept, just that it is not as cheesy.

All The Udder Pancake's mains comprises of 4 pieces of pancake and other ingredients, depending on your order. The pancakes are mini-sized, probably 3/4 or 1/2 of the usual MacDonald Hotcakes.

Salmon, Crab & Caviar Egg Benedict ($16.90 for half, $24.90 for full) consists of poached egg with citrus hollandaise, smoked salmon, crab claw meat and ebiko slaw on grilled cheddar cheese pancakes. Also topped with lumpfish caviar and fresh dill.

I had the half portion, so was given only 2 pancakes, and found that the pancakes are actually not too thick, so the fear of being overindulging is probably out of question. The cheese pancakes are quite special, tickling my taste bud which opens up my appetite. Honestly speaking, it doesn't look very appetizing because of the soggy and mushy fillings topped by the poached egg, but I didn't hesitate to finish the entire portion after my first mouth.

Honey-Glazed Herbed Chicken ($14.90) has the boneless chicken marinated with paprika and rosemary, being honey glazed and flame grilled. This on the other hand, presentation looks more appealing than the former, and the taste remains as savoury as Salmon, Crab & Caviar Egg Benedict. Just the look of the boneless chicken, I can still imagine how juicy and delectable it was.

The Udder Pancake is kind of far away from my usual hangout place, but it does worth the time to travel. Carparks can be plenty if you arrive early, but even if you managed to find an empty slot after some waiting, you might also need to be in the queue for an empty table then. Unless you are early?

I wouldn't mind returning again for its food and tapas, and of course, the ice creams should not be missed too since U.D.D.E.R.S next door is popular for its high quality ice cream.
