On my first visit here, I actually thought I was in a European café due to its store interiors and music. Until I came closer to the menu board and saw that it offers Hainanese chicken, nasi goring, kaya toast (with 2 boiled eggs on the sides), hot chocolate with tablea cocoa, and the crew prepared coffee by including condensed milk instead of sugar. Hmmm….. if this is not Asian, then I don’t know where else I am.
This place gives me a ‘feel at home’ vibe primarily because ‘white’ color dominates the interiors (made elegant through yellow lighting), and the menu appeals to the Asian palate like mine. On the other hand, the store ambiance, wide array of toasts, teas and jams, plus its cool, contemporary jazz music tells you that even non-Asians will be happy to hang around this place.
As today’s restaurant menus get increasingly common, I’d come here when I crave for toast (supplied by Bread Talk, its sister company) and some jam, hot noodle soup and brewed coffee with condensed milk. I don’t get to see its barley drinks anymore, and that would have been another surprise for foodie adventureros.
