Despite its less than prominent entrance and lack of signboard (it's next to Thian Hock Keng Temple along Telok Ayer Street), this cafe is proving to be really popular, especially among the lunch crowd. Named after one of Singapore's earliest schools, this cafe infuses Peranakan culture into this homely cafe setting, and shares its space with a store selling vintage Peranakan tiles. Start your day right with their Signature Nyonya Otah Loti ($4.80) which comes with tomatoes, cheese and romaine lettuce. During lunch, swing by with your colleagues for the Nyonya Laksa ($8.80) — the noodles come topped with two large deshelled tiger prawns, clams and a generous portion of fish cake, all soaked in a luscious, punchy laksa gravy. At tea-time, try the Nyonya Tea Set ($10), which comes with two drinks and five handmade kuehs. Prices are nett.
Avg price: $10 per person
