Review: Montana Brew Bar @ POMO

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Aren’t we all sick of cafes serving only waffles in Singapore? Yeah me too. Waffles with ice cream, that is. But I guess the sound of Truffle Mac and Cheese Waffle would get just anyone a little excited right?

Montana Brew Bar, is the newest kid on the waffle block. POMO may not be heard by many in town, it is sure gaining popularity fast with them housing Montana Brew Bar, and the new yogurt store (opened by the folks behind Montana as well) Nookie.

The Place

Located on the first storey of POMO, Montana set its roots right beside Yakun. Occupying only a single unit, the space can get pretty crowded and cramped during its peak. Photo 14-2-15 5 01 45 pm Photo 14-2-15 5 05 00 pmThe seats are not the most comfortable ones you can get, and it is a normal occurrence to be bumping elbows and butts with the other patrons here. Not the best dining experience I would rate, especially on Valentine’s Day.

The Food 
Photo 14-2-15 5 12 21 pm Iced Mocha ($6.50): Montana has one of the best iced mocha I’ve had. A good balance of acidity and sweetness from the chocolate. It perked me up immediately from the long day visiting the River Safari.
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Truffle Jalapeno Mac & Cheese 2.0 ($11.50): The 2.0 version is apparently much cheesier than the first, but I thought it was still a little lacking in the cheesy flavor. What made this waffle different from the rest is that they have their Mac and Cheese stuffed in between the waffle.

The aroma of the truffle whiffed into our noses once it was served to our table, and it took me a lot of control to get pictures of this dish before stuffing them in my belly. In my opinion, this dish is definitely great for sharing, as it can get quite gelat towards the end. By pairing it with the jalapeno sauce served on the side, it makes this dish a lot more interesting with the added spice and tanginess!
Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich with wasabi slaw ($9.90): My eyes lit up when I took a bite of the chicken. It was well-marinated and moist, I couldn’t help but to compare it to the one I had at Sin Lee Foods. Just for half the price, I preferred this chicken because of how moist and tender it is. The waffle itself fared better as well, as it was made with a lighter batter and crispy exterior, which I thought was a much better complement to the chicken. You wouldn’t feel too overwhelmed at the end of this dish!

Closing Remarks

Besides savory waffles, Montana also serves up various items on their menu, such as burgers, and sweet waffles, like that of the Red Velvet waffle, which I intend to try in the near future. I thought that the location can be a little inconvenient, and parking was pretty expensive as well.

Montana has certainly impressed me with the quality of their waffles and their innovation with their waffle dishes. I left the place feeling very satisfied. The boy and I thought that these were the best savory waffles we’ve had. If you haven’t visited Montana, please make time to visit them soon, because they are definitely worth your time and money! It’s really rare to find some where that serves quality and affordable grub in Singapore, what’s more in the town area!
