Back at my hiding place at Dong Po colonial cafe.

Apart from my usual order of coconut tart , I was happy to see another of my favourites - the Pandan coconut cake on display .

So fragrant and moist with the natural flavour of pandan shining through and a little desiccated coconut to add some texture amidst the soft and tender cake . And at 1.50 per slice for so much love and effort - what affordability in this day and age where cafes are charging 7 to 8 dollars for cake slices that are mainly churned out in bulk from central kitchens ( or factories I call them ...)

This reminds me of a headline that I read somewhere on why would people pay 15 dollars for brunch but less willing to pay for a plate of wanton Mee which sometimes requires much more work , effort and behind the scenes preparation .

Perfect afternoon treat with a cup of their fabulous Kopi to watch the world go by ....

I hope places like Dong Po will live on forever ...
because it just preserves a past of Singapore....
