One of the most consistent , least sweet and well made castella cakes in town .

Best time to buy now and hibernate at home .

Just 6 dollars for a huge slice .

I would come all the way back to this cafe just for this .

One of the best Cheng Tengs ever .

The cafe is open to the public and overlooks a beautiful golf course and city skyline .

They make a very mean stir fry Hokkien prawn mee with a strong wok hei that could rival the popular Hokkien mee stalls :) ( minus the waiting and the mad queues )

The cafe serves a range of local dishes to Japanese bento sets and grills and western dishes ( pastas, fish and chips ).

Every item was done very well - especially the local dishes . Pretty impressed :)

I have tried so many Versions and cedele’s one is probably the best for me.

Expensive at 2.20 per cup but very aromatic coffee - one of the best I have had .

Grab a pandan chiffon from pure pandan 2 shops down and wash down with your coffee here .

The pastas somehow fared better than the pizzas here .

Amazing garlicky , spicy , tomato-ey.

Al dente pasta .

One of the best arrabiata I have had .

Service was also really really good 🙏.

Fragrant , light and not sweet .
Some of the best pancakes 🥞 !

I have eaten pastas from famed Italian restaurants, handmade pastas from cafes but none can rival this .

Sad that This brand has closed its only outlet at Star Vista .

This pasta 🍝 is amazing amazing- done al dente , smooth and a right balance between tartness from the tomatoes and a slight creaminess from the carbonara .

Besides a full range of homely Italian pastas and pizzas and roasted/ grilled meats , the tiramisu here is a bomb !

Really lovely tiramisu - moist and not sweet and with strong coffee kick.

Made with a traditional Italian recipe from an Italian chef - amazing !

And so very affordable

In this cosy cafe / restaurant specialising in Italian food - I found one of the best tasting arrabbiatas and it is no wonder .

For those of you whom are familiar with “ homemade Italian “ operating at the old golden shoe air conditioned food court from 2007 to 2015 which did a whole range of heathy anti pasti and ala min italian pastas using traditional Italian recipes - they are now at Alexandra central .

So glad I finally managed to find them after chasing them from Selegie to Harbourfront food junction food court and now at this sleepy Alexandra mall .

I love Their homemade pesto and arrabbiata . Prices are so affordable but you get bang for your buck because all the recipes here are from an Italian chef.

Pretty good cup of yuan yang here albeit expensive price of 2.20 for a small cup .

But you get some shade and air con from the sweltering heat .

For those of you who like all things soft and fluffy -
This is the best place to get your chiffon cakes.

They are made without additives , no artificial flavours or colouring .

Popular flavours are the D24 durian , chocolate and of course pure pandan 🥰

Really outstanding Kuehs from the coconut club.

The kueh kosui , tapioca kueh and the kueh salat were equally excellent - probably the best I have had .

Funny how the Kuehs were better than the main courses 😆

I dream of food .
