Craving something sweet and want something refreshing to wash it down with? Check out Milk Singapore, a stroopwafels and bubble tea kiosk along Arab street. For those not familiar with the Dutch delicacy, stroopwafels are a wafer biscuit topped with different sweet flavourings, and they are deadly delicious.
Making a distinction between their stroopwafels and store-bought variants, Milk Singapore’s are bigger and extra crisp, a sign of freshness. The stroopwafels are available coated in four delicious toppings—Matcha Oreo, Biscoff White, S’mores or Rocher (S$4 each). Take your pick!

While Rrooll doesn’t accept dine-in customers, there are standing tables in the basement area where you can devour your sweet snack before catching your flight, though you don’t have to be flying to taste Rrooll’s amazing cinnamon rolls.
