Chequers | The Waffled Chessboard

Sunday, April 17, 2016

thank you for birthday, and thank you for good friend, i am able to indulge in some good noms again. we were here for some good waffles, at the Chequers. located at the heart of TTDI, this waffle-board seated at one corner of a row of old shop lots, with plenty of old sundry shops and kopitiams left and right.


upon arriving at the doorstep, we were welcomed by their fascinating caged staircase which look pretty awesome standing in the middle of the shop. probably for safety purpose but turn out to look quite cool don't you agree?

they have set the checker theme pretty well with colour combination of black, red, and white. also maybe a touch of brown to represent waffles. look up to the ceiling if you happen to sit indoor because there is a giant piece of golden waffle hanging right on top of your head..:p


Hot Latte | RM10.00
definitely a piece of instagram worthy shot with a nicely drawn heart shaped coffee art floating in a red cup. unfortunately taste wise was rather disappointing, because it tastes really bitter. we expecting some sort of milk sweetness in there but too bad we barely taste any.


Sunrise Passion | RM11.00
pretty sure that it is the weather that acting up, was craving for some sort of refreshing, something fizzy. immediately i pointed to this glass of iced cold passion fruit with a dash of lemonade. it is just an ordinary cup of passion fruit i would say, but due to the weather this turned out to be really good and chilling. 


besides waffles, they do serve pasta and main course and sandwiches. but liked i said, we were here for some good waffles so we ended up ordering some of their signature savory waffles, waffle feast!!

Hangover Remedy (The Big Breakfast) | RM26.00
choice of savory waffles or garlic breads; two eggs - scrambled, poached, or sunny side; choice of banger - chicken or beef; with - beef bacon or turkey ham; also comes with roasted tomato, tater tots and rancherous beans,

i would prefer the waffles to serve slightly crunchier, because the ones on the plate are rather soggy, and somewhat cold. but on the bright side, i like the tater tots i wished they can serve me more.

i was a little taken back when i found out their poached eggs taste really weird. i took the first bite on one of the poached egg and it taste rubber-ish as though there is a layer of rubber coating on the egg. and then i decided to not eat them anymore. well luckily this happened when i actually finished up the rest of the food on the plate, for i have the habit to want to poke the poached eggs last.


Chicken Cobb Sandwich | RM26.00
savory waffles sandwiched with marinated grilled chicken, beef bacon, sliced tomato, boiled egg, guacamole and curry mayo. comes with waffle fries.

the curry mayo is something different. definitely spice up the whole piece of sandwich there since there is not much taste from the waffles.


Rustic Apple | RM20.00
i would very much prefer the waffles here because they are seasoned with cinnamon and of course a sense of crunchiness. topped caramelized spiced apples and vanilla ice cream coated in honey mint sauce *superb refreshing* , do not forget the sweet syrup swimming below the waffles. take a bite of everything on the plate and it is equivalent to a mouthful of goodness!!


besides the rather disappointed poached eggs, overall i would say this is a not bad place for foodie lover to give it a try. their service are not bad too knowing their staffs can speak pretty well English. i think i would definitely be back for their desserts!!!
