Fancy a cup of Beauty & The Beast? A concoction of orange juice, espresso with tonic water on the side to cleanse palates. Perhaps a peculiar taste, though a tinge of citrus was added to the strong bitter espresso.

To enjoy the Palmyra latte, I was taught to pour half of the milk in, followed by espresso and then the palmyra syrup (derived from palm sugar). Love the natural sweetness of the thick palm sugar syrup. There’s also coffee jelly and some pieces of sweet chestnuts. You get to keep the artistic bottle which has QR codes of different music genres by their favourite shanghainese artiste 180 years ago. Innovative isn’t it?
