So let’s say you’ve just had a full meal – but you’re craving something sweet. You’re patting your belly, looking around the hawker centre, wishing for a light dessert that won’t take you from “comfortably full” to “outright bloated” – one that, preferably, won’t jab too many holes in your wallet…
And your eye falls on – Sweet Rex! Which sells $2-each soufflé pancakes that won’t rupture your stomach or your wallet – and whose sweet treats are totally Instagrammable.
$2 Soufflé Pancakes At A Hawker Stall
Located in Mei Ling Food Centre, this hawker stall is pretty hard to miss, what with its bright-yellow pushcart facade and eye-catching menu. But what’s important isn’t appearances, after all. It’s the food. And Sweet Rex certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Try their caramel-covered soufflé pancakes, featuring glorious caramel sauce drizzled over soft, freshly-made, piping hot pancakes. Eat it while it’s hot, and the sauce basically melts into the pancakes, leaving you with a mouthful of caramel-y, buttery goodness. And despite the sugar, this dessert is light, and it feels like eating clouds.
Sugary deliciousness with none of the guilt? Mmm. Yes, please.
If you’re not in the mood for caramel, you can always go for the chocolate or strawberry sauce option instead for an equally blissful dessert experience. And of course, each pancake costs only $2 – which makes each set a total of $4. $4. For this.
Totally worth it, wouldn’t you say?

But it’s not just the soufflé pancakes that’ll fit the bill if you’re looking for a light dessert – Sweet Rex does great light cheesecakes, too. These have a soft, almost tofu-like consistency, and they’re bound to make your tastebuds sing. Try their Lemon Cheese Cake for just $3.80 – it’s creamy and citrusy but still miraculously light.
Or try their pudding for just $2! These come in two flavours, matcha and thai milk tea. A bite of one of these will slide right down your throat, leaving a tinge of sweetness in your mouth that’ll leave you wanting more.
