If you’re a fan of The Blackhole Group, you probably already know about STACK, their popular sando and pancake concept. After a long wait, STACK is finally back with a brand look, concept and menu featuring their iconic artisanal sandos, waffles, soft serve, coffee and more! While you might be disappointed to hear that they won’t be serving their hot favourite pancake stacks (for now), you’ll be stoked to find that they have a slew of other drool-worthy items to offer instead!
Located in the Stamford Arts Centre, right next to their sister concept Tipo e Pizzeria, STACK boasts a new purple and yellow-themed look.
STACK’s interior is downright adorable, inspired by our own local landscapes and HDB architecture. The space is decked in hues of pastel purple and yellow in a colour blocking fashion—inspired by our colourful HDBs. You’ll also find nods to our HDB void deck, such as the iconic tiles used for the void deck tables.
There’s also a small retail area located within the store itself where you’ll be able to cop some exclusive STACK merchandise like specially designed t-shirts and teacups. STACK will also be collaborating with Soil Boy in the near future to bring in some potted plants as well!
The menu is fairly straightforward, with only a few Sandos, Waffles and Soft Serves to choose from. The sandwich breads used at STACK are also freshly baked in-house by the folks at Working Title: Riverside, and are unlike other sandwich breads you see regularly as they’re topped with assorted nuts and seeds for that extra crunchy texture (and health factor!).
Pollo Avo Club, $13
For Sandos, we enjoyed the Pollo Avo Club ($13), a chunky, wholesome chicken sandwich with a hint of spice from the house made spicy aioli that really ties the whole sandwich together.
Loaded Gun, $13
If you’re a fan of pickles, you’ll definitely like the Loaded Gun ($13). This one’s a chonker that’s chock full of salty beef salami and has a strong taste of dill pickle. This would make a great sando for meat lovers, but in our opinion it could do with a little less pickle as the taste of pickles were a tad overpowering.
Berry Manilow, $15
Definitely don’t miss out on their waffles for dessert: we went for the Berry Manilow ($15) that’s not only pretty to look at but is also a solid waffle. The liege waffles are perfectly crisp on the outside, soft and fluffy inside; and the berry compote is a good balance of both sweet and tart, complementing the light cloud of cream well.
Pear Detox, $7; Cold Brew Tea, $6
For drinks, make sure to get their homemade Cold Brew Tea ($6), which is light and refreshing, with a distinct lavender aroma. Their cold-pressed juices are also worth a try, and you can tell they’re real fresh as they’re thick and pulpy.
Worth a visit: Their hearty, chunky sandos make for a quick and healthy lunch!
