Their speciality, however, appears to be local fusion items like chendol waffles and satay chicken croissants.

One of their signature items is the deconstructed chendol waffles known as Go Home (S$12.50).

The reimagined take on the local icy dessert features pandan waffles topped with coconut soft serve, chendol jelly, adzuki beans, and a gula melaka drizzle.
