Not worth the hype
I remember when Waffle Slayer used to be all the rage. Photos of waffles were plastered over my social media accounts, with the geotags being "Waffle Slayer", "Waffle Slayer", and more "Waffle Slayer". Being under the same management as Strangers Reunion, I had rather high expectations for Waffle Slayer, especially with Strangers Reunion being known for their soft and fluffy buttermilk waffles.
My friends and I ordered one matcha and one squid ink waffle to share, along with some savory dishes which regrettably fared worse than Macs breakfast. The savory dish consisted of toast and some scrambled eggs. The eggs were dry and overcooked and the toast was nothing to scream about.
However, on the brighter side, the matcha waffles had more than a subtle hint of matcha- for which I was really glad. The red bean topping complemented the accompanying scoop of ice cream well. The squid ink waffle, the most unique one, being black, came with smoked salmon. The squid ink taste wasn't very distinct, but there was nothing much to complain about. All in all, this is one place I would go just once, only to see if it's worth the hype.
Unfortunately, I don't think so.
Great find because Strangers' is too crowded
I first discovered The Waffle Slayer by chance when I wanted to visit Strangers' Reunion. There was a 15-20 min waiting time and I discovered that the sister outlet right next door serves not only the same menu but also an extensive waffle menu - both savoury and sweet.
I got my breakfast fix with scrambled eggs on English muffin and smoked salmon. It wasn't particularly memorable but I did enjoy my breakfast. Pretty standard breakfast fare, decent for the amount we paid.
The buttermilk waffles with candied apple and maple ice cream was the highlight of our meal. The waffles were miraculously crispy yet chewy, and the ice cream was the perfect accompaniment to our fluffy waffles.
Well it is called The Waffle Slayer after all - so remember to get your waffle fix here.
