It may not look it, but Australian café Sisterfields takes a great deal of inspiration from where it's based in Bali. Their Balinese Banoffee Pancakes, now a Singapore-exclusive, is made with Balinese vanilla, with a thick chocolate whip from Indonesia-based Samsaman, where single-origin pods are grown in a farm near the café. On top of two palm-sized pancakes is a thick drizzle of butterscotch blended with coconut palm sugar, and this gives it an addictive sweet finish. Executive chef Jethro Vincent is passionate about the “bold, aggressive” flavour profiles in much of Asian food, and does inject that into the menu. An upcoming café, Fika, by the same group will open on 15 September in the beach resort of Seminyak, with a focus on clean, Swedish-inspired styles and tastes. But for now, one can enjoy their signatures, Smashed Avocado Rye Bread and Pulled Pork Charcoal Roll, along with dessert-pleasing Balinese Banoffee Pancakes.
Prices range from SGD 16 –21.
