12 Waffles to Try in KL and SelangorSean Yoong
December 11, 2014
1. Ecole P at Damansara Utama
Start with some of the most inventive waffles in the Klang Valley – Ecole P serves Hong Kong-style egg waffles in a Western presentation. Have them filled with strawberry sauce, topped with Kapiti vanilla ice cream, strawberries, green apples and oranges, or filled with Nutella and peanut butter sauce, topped with Kapiti triple chocolate ice cream, honey stars, marshmallow, dark chocolate pearls and Oreo crumbs.
Address: First Floor, 19, Jalan SS21/37, Damansara Utama
2. Thirdwave at Bangsar South
Thirdwave’s waffles are subtly osmanthus-infused, crispy on the edges, crowned with New Zealand’s Kapiti vanilla ice cream, ‘mysterious flowers,’ berries and bananas.
Address: Unit 1-11, Level 1, Nexus, 59200 Bangsar South
3. Standing Theory at SS2 Petaling Jaya

Brand new on Standing Theory’s dinner menu: Fried Chicken & Waffles. The café promises that this “glorious mess is a meal you won’t forget.”
Address: Jalan SS2/103, 47300 Petaling Jaya
4. Kaffeine at Plaza Damas 3
The Belgian waffles menu here is noteworthy: Try this savoury one, tinged with kimchi for a Korean twist. Bits of fermented veggies add an interesting edge to these well-prepared waffles.
Address: C-0-7, Plaza Damas 3, No 68, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1
5. Chequers at Taman Tun Dr Ismail
Savoury or sweet? Have both: The Moo Moois basically a waffle burger, with sirloin beef patty, cheddar, slaw, relish, crispy bacon and berry BBQ sauce, while the Tiramisu at Chequers comes with espresso and wonderfully fluffy waffles.
Address: 153, Jalan Aminuddin Baki, 60000 Taman Tun Dr Ismail
6. Madame Waffle at Mid Valley
Waffle combos available for a light, refreshing teatime treat (in between shopping or after catching a movie) include the signature green tea waffle with matcha gelato by Gelatomio, strawberries, whipped cream and azuki beans and the coffee waffle with tiramisu gelato, coffee-whipped cream and strawberries.
Address: T-045, Level 3 Mezzanine, Mid Valley Megamall
7. Vvaffle at Jaya One
Brioche dough with Belgian pearl sugar form a balanced batter for Vvaffle’s fresh-tasting, well-textured offerings. Our favourite so far is this: Waffle with white chocolate, pure vanilla cream and Nestum flakes, the warmth of the waffle well-teamed with the cool, softly sweet toppings.
Address: Level P1, The School Complex Jaya One, Jalan Universiti
8. Whimsical at Solaris Dutamas
The waffles at Whimsical prove yeasty-tasting, per its founder’s preference, hearty with vanilla cinnamon gelato, strawberries, lashes of chocolate ganache and almond flakes.
Address: D2-G3-05, Solaris Dutamas, 1 Jalan Dutamas 1
9. S.O.C. Snow Or Coffee at Wangsa Maju
S.O.C.’s waffles are well-prepared, delivering the right balance of crunch outside and fluffiness within. The options for chocolate and strawberry ice cream could be too limited (whither vanilla?), but for RM6.90, we liked it fine (and finished every bite).
Address: No.22 (Ground Floor) Jalan 1/27B, Taman Desa Setapak
10. Frisky Goat at Taman Tun Dr Ismail
Poached eggs are served with a difference at Frisky Goat, atop a fresh-tasting Belgian waffle and partnered with seared salmon, sauteed mushrooms and an eye-catching, tomato-tinged hollandaise sauce.
Address: 72, Jalan Burhanudin Helmi, Taman Tun Dr Ismail
11. Sevencups at Empire Damansara

Sevencups describes its signature waffle as complemented by “luscious Belgian dark chocolate mousse, strawberries macerated in organic balsamic vinegar which provides a hint of tartness, accompanied by a scoop of smooth vanilla bean ice cream.”
Address: G-25, Empire Damansara, Jalan PJU 8/8, Damansara Perdana
12. The Owls Café at Bukit Jalil
Waffles are the star of the show at The Owls Café. The Milo Dinosaur is a behemoth with dark chocolate ice cream, coco crunch and marshmallows.
Address: 12-1, First Floor, Block 5, Jalil Link, Jalan Jalil 6, Bukit Jalil
