We’re always on the lookout for new pop-culture inspired hangouts, and the latest one on the block – the one-month old Monniker – makes for both a fantastic chill-out spot and a place to satisfy your food cravings.
With it’s Steampunk inspired decor, tungsten lighting and wooden furniture, this cozy cafe on Balestier Road is every would-be aeronaut’s dream.
It evinces the interior of an airship plying the skies in an alternate, Victorian sci-fi reality, and serves up not just hearty breakfasts fit for adventurers, but also some really amazing mains like their signature Chicken Waffle Stack ($19), Fish & Chips ($19) and Ribs ($23).
The Fish & Chips was deliciously fluffy, and scented with a hint of lemon grass mixed into the batter, while the Ribs were succulent, tender, and dripped with BBQ flavored goodness.
There was also the sinfully savory Chicken Waffle Stack – buttermilk waffles generously sprinkled with maple syrup sandwiching a chunky slice of cheese-topped chicken. It was served with a fried egg (sunny side-up), and complemented by a homemade mushroom sauce that smelled faintly of truffle.
Monniker also has an amazing assortment of alcoholic beverages, and their barista-in-residence whips up not just amazing coffee and tea, but also Iced Valrhona Chocolate ($7).
All in all, Monniker’s a great place to while away your afternoons, and we’re really excited to see what else they’ll have to offer in the months to come.
