The store is all about ukulele and for those passionate about music, you can pick up loan ukes at the cafe to strum away while sipping a cup of coffee.

The cafe also serve some light pastries and cakes, sodas and soft drinks. I think this concept is such a good idea as it creates a community for the like minded people and at the same time bring friends and family closer together.


The stall is just next to the BaaMee Bangkok. The tonkatsu curry rice ($8) exclude the tamago side. The curry gravy was decent, but the pork katsu was a tad disappointing, the meat was dry and not succulent in any way.


Conveniently located in the heart of Jalan Besar on Maude road, Wan He Lou is a humble looking Chinese restaurant serving an array of seafood dishes at down to earth prices.

One of the must try dishes is the signature Lobster porridge, priced at $29.90 for 2-3 person serving or $39.90 for large that serve up to 5 person. The lobster broth is robust and full of natural flavours, and the meat is luxuriously tender and flesh.

A bowl of flavorful prawn noodles broth with generous serving of prawns. Will be great that they improved the quality and the size of the prawns.


Room For Desserts, home of the best-selling Summertime Carrot Cake and Red Velvet cake is located at Somme Road, just off Jalan Besar behind City Square Mall. This sweet little dessert room used to be at Waterloo Street, the cakes are still as delightful as before.


Honzen Ramen, the main for one of the 6-course lunch set available. At $22 nett, you can choose one out of the six mains and soups. Healthy Vegetarian Signatures such as Kimchi fried rice, and Hainanese chicken rice are recommended by the owner.

Every Singaporean favorite local dish, it's also a national dish that celebrity Chef Gorden Ramsay challenged against. This bowl of laksa as compared to Katong, the gravy is not so thick and more authentic as it is cooked over charcoal fire.

The only way of eating the laksa is with a spoon which is pretty old school and the standards remain unchanged after so many years, except for the price.

A good example of what a homestyle sandwich can be. This new Espressivo cafe located at Jalan Besar serve simple and quick hot food such as pizzas and sandwiches. This is something that you can whip up at home, therefore it gives you a homely feeling when you're at the cafe.
