Cafes seem to be popping up like popcorn, which is great as there are plenty of options to take the kids to. Is it just me (getting older) or are cafes being opened by younger and younger people these days? You’ve undoubtedly heard of Udders the ice cream parlour. Now they have branched into the increasingly popular pancake market with “The Udder pancake”. These people have a great sense of humour. From the moment we walked through the ‘broken’ glass entrance, the kids and I couldn’t stop chuckling at the ‘do not break’ (or in this case ‘do break’) red boxes adorning the walls.
Before I could get them seated, they had their own mini tour of the cafe, wandering around and calling out to one another, “Look at this one!”
There was even a thousand dollar bill in one of the boxes. And they kept asking me “Can we break it? Can we? Can we?”
The food is ordered at the counter and served to your table. We were there last weekend and the place was almost packed full mostly with teenagers and young adults.
Sadly, we found the standard of the food to be pretty mediocre. The only thing they polished up were the homemade ‘naked’ pancakes.

The good thing was that we have a choice of ordering either a full or half size for the fancy pancakes. We chose the half sizes for more variety and to try out what’s good. The Salmon, Crab & Caviar Egg Benedict pancakes (the dish in the background) was interesting. We didn’t quite like the Pulled Pork Egg Benedict pancakes because the pancakes ended up being rather soggy. You must be wondering what that deep fried bomb-looking thing is. It’s some kind of giant white button mushroom wrapped with bacon. Sounded very yummy on the menu, but was a pity none of the kids liked it.

Despite the so-so food, the kids enjoyed themselves tremendously at this cool cafe. Do they want to come again? You bet. For the plain pancakes and the truffle fries. Oh, and the ice cream which you can order from the adjoining Udders ice-cream outlet.
This stretch of shophouses on Lorong Kilat is getting very hip with several new cafes, in addition to Nook the DIY pancake place which is popular with families.
