I first discovered @knots_cafe_and_living when I was searching for cafés near my office, and I was so stoked to find this quiet little haven 🍃 just steps away from the realities of office life, especially during non-peak hours when the Boss and I sneaked in some coffee time. 🤭

While their coffee isn't the best, it's good enough to satisfy our caffeine fix ☕, paired with a delicious cake🍰🍭 to round off an indulgent afternoon.

Even though I no longer work in the area, I do drop by occasionally to bask in the lush greenery of the café... I really do miss the quiet non-peak hours though! So looking forward to trying more places this weekend! 😋♥️♥️

This cafe located in Paya Lebar limits customers to 90 mins. The second level of the cafe is no longer accessible due to “safe distancing” measures. The food was so so and yet more pricy than most cafes. If you are there for good food, don’t. If you are there to take in the decor and post on Instagram, you will not be disappointed.

Won’t be back any time soon.

We don't get much flavours in the broth other than the spice. It's just like adding chilli paste into plain boiling water and they were quite inconsistent with what goes with their ramen. Other reviews of the same order came with an egg while ours don't. Perhaps it would be better to include pictures or descriptions on their menu to prevent such confusion ☹️

Thanks to Burpple Beyond, we get to enjoy 2 Main Dish for the price of 1 ✌ (U.P $9.90)

The broth lacked the rich and creamy flavours of pork bone (tonkotsu). It was rather bland and diluted although the ramen noodles were done al-dente. No egg was given either while other reviews show they have an egg 🤔 The menu has no description hence we are unsure what comes with it.

Had the burpple beyond deal with 2 drinks, 2 mains and 2 muffins for $25. If your main is >$10 you will have to top up. I got a masala chicken baked rice and it was like a mountain, much larger than expected! No carb options are available too like cauliflower rice. Muffins were tasty and staff was very friendly and helpful. A good deal if you are in the taiseng area.

Prodigal Cafe is one of those places that I have recently skipped on quite a lot recently — one of those places that I used to visit on a weekly basis, but with them being closed on Sundays, it has also been one of those places which I have also found it difficult to plan for, considering it will have to be a Saturday if I were to drop by this nook in the MacPherson Lane estate.

Having revamped their menu fairly recently, Prodigal Cafe has since stopped serving up their previous menu — the famed Grilled Cheese Sandwich is also currently axed off in favour of a whole new Sourdough Pizza menu that is as good, if not even better than what they were serving up previously. Making their very own sourdough pizza crust from scratch, the Lychee Bacon was our choice during our recent visit — a pizza that featured elements such as Smoked Lychee and Bacon, Homemade Tomato Sauce, Buffolo Mozzarella, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Parmigiano Reggiano.

Found the Lychee Bacon Pizza to be pretty much like a twist to the all familiar Hawaiian pizza that locals know and love — the ham seems to be effectively replaced by the bacon, while the lychee’s sweetness seemed to have replicated that of the zingy sweetness of pineapples in a typical Hawaiian pizza; the bacon also aptly savoury whilst being lightly smoky, with the melted cheese providing that additional cheesiness from the usual mozzarella found in Hawaiian pizzas. What really set their pizzas apart from the many others we have had over the years is the sourdough crust — brilliantly executed when it comes to the fluffiness and chewiness, yet beautifully blistered with charred marks from the baking process that also provides for the light crispness in the crust; simply a joy to have on its own, and forms a great base to any toppings that are subsequently added to it.

Prodigal Cafe/Roasters is a spot I have been following ever since they had opened their doors at Ang Mo Kio; had tried many iterations of the various items that they have to offer but their sourdough pizzas seems to be the best items that have came out of their kitchen of the late; it’s the best time to check them out if one hasn’t done so yet!


This is the one stall I visited the most to find it closed. At least five times. I almost believed it's folded, so imagine my surprise this time. It's really quite divine, with the signature mutton not only fragrant and gamey, it came bone-in, with marrow, at this low price!

With the second outlet open within Food Republic BreadTalk IHQ, you can now enjoy the same quality fish soup in comfort of a air-conditioned place

The signature clear yet comforting broth comes in three sliced fish options: Batang (from $6), Red Garoupa (from $9) and Pomfret (from $9) with options to add-on. To experience the Teochew style of having fish soup, dip the fish slices into a mix of savoury bean paste spiked with fiery fresh chilli and soy sauce
