Habitat Coffee and Wafflelicious, Thomson

The boyfriend picked me up one Friday evening after work and we headed to Thomson! Partly because I wanted to try something different on a Friday night instead of the usual shopping centers and partly because I heard lots about Habitat Coffee and Wafflelicious and wanted to try them for myself!

We parked at a public car park nearby and took the short walk to Habitat Coffee. The cafe seems to be staffed by an all-male crew and one of them ushered us to the second level. We took a seat along the wall with a glass panel that overlooked the first floor and I was actually very amused by that seat! We could spy on everybody on the first floor and it was not obvious at all. Or maybe it was obvious but you could not blame us since there was literally nowhere else we could be looking.

Chilli Crab Linguine ($17). So generous with the crab meat, so interesting with the fried man tous at the side, and so al dente was the linguine! This was worth the raves. I do think the sauce was a little too thick and it could have done better with less tomato sauce and a lighter flavour, but this was definitely still good. I will be back for their coffee and truffle fries!

Wafflelicious. For a place which ostensibly is mad about waffles, I was sorely disappointed by the way our chocolate waffle turned out. Hard and overcooked. This definitely went down into the no-go category. Even the boyfriend who likes crispy waffles found this sad. The earl grey ice cream was good though! Very fragrant with small bits of earl grey tea leaves.
