Yet another eatery has opened in the slowly modernising Joo Chiat street. This time, it’s a creperie called Robolots. It’s located on the 1st floor within Katong Junction Mall itself and you might just miss it if you weren’t looking out for it. It’s just a short walk from Mooshi Bakes and 112 Katong Mall.
As the name suggests, Robolots serves crepes, both savoury as well as sweet. The crepes that they serve aren’t like what you may find at Canele or Creperie des Arts. Robolot’s crepes are on the soft side, almost like a very thin pancake but with a bit more chew, as compared to the somewhat crispy ones from Canele or Creperie des Arts or even Mooshi Bakes just down the road.
I am told by Jooann, the young owner of Robolots, that the flours are specially sourced and imported from Italy. The special flour gives the crepes a faint fragrance not detectable if one were to use locally produced flour.
The partner and I tried 2 dishes at Robolots. We chose a savoury crepe and a dessert. Interestingly, the dessert was served first.
French Bana-Strata – Layers of ripened banana bread stack made with milk, honey, cinnamon, raisins and chocolate chips, served with a scoop of vanilla gelato $7.90.
