Class gathering @ Nook


Recently I met up with some of my closest secondary school classmates (those that bothered to keep in contact) to have lunch at Nook, a D.I.Y. pancake place I had always wanted to go but the plan was always pushed back due to my laziness. No idea why I suddenly had this craving for pancakes when I always found them too plain for my liking. Probably it was because of the overwhelming photos of colourful home made pancakes that kept appearing on my Instagram feed -_-

Anyway I always had this impression that Nook was located at some secluded area of Bukit Timah (around the area where Choupinette is) which is only convenient if I drive. But no, Nook is just at Jalan Jurong Kechil and that is pretty near to where I live! I always head there for supper and my dogs get their check-ups at a vet there too. Hence I don’t understand how I could miss this place.

I made a reservation for 25th May for about 12 of us. Its spacious interior was also another reason why I chose Nook as our gathering place because it’d mean that we didn’t have to be separated. We sat around a table that has been elongated by adding another one and had 2 square pancake pans to ourselves. For the price of about $28 (without GST and service charge yet), we could choose two flavours for our batter together with 3 toppings of our choice. It was indicated on the menu that “each set serves 2” but Zhiyong having been there once before advised that it was enough to feed 3-4. So we got 3 sets instead which makes 6 batters and 9 toppings. Of course, we shared the 6 batters among 2 tables. My table got the strawberry, chocolate and original flavoured one while the other chose pandan, banana and another strawberry, I think. Toppings were basically oreo chunks, kit kat, banana slices, rainbow sprinkles, peach slices, chocolate chips, camarelised apples, chocolate sauce and raisins. They gave maple syrup but the amount was really, really, little. Had to “scrimp and save” on it to make it last as long as possible.

Pictures here were snapped using various phones, lol. Sorry no quality cameras used as our purpose there was to eat and have a great time together, not critique on the pancakes 😀

As you can see we aren’t good pancake designers lol.

It was a really fun experience creating our own designs but all of us left Nook feeling partially hungry and also sick of pancakes haha. We had some more batter left but we didn’t want to waste it, so some of the boys played scissors, paper, stone and the loser had to eat all the remaining pancakes – a forfeit that has been practised since our secondary school days to prevent wastage. Sometimes I just love that we still have that little tinge of immaturity in us. It makes our outings/gatherings even more enjoyable 🙂

Nook, in my opinion, is an ideal place to catch up with your friends. We spent close to 2 hours there (that’s how long how batters lasted). But I wouldn’t go back again as it’s pretty costly without the pancake buffet and you get tired of pancakes after awhile.

Til we meet again fellas!!
