There is an overhead covered walkway linking the Nicoll Highway MRT station to the recently completed building . City Gate has residential units as well as commercial space. Only a small number of retail units are open for business currently. Most of them are food and beverages outlets.

Lunch at Yang Coffee & Toast
We visited Yang Coffee & Toast recently for lunch and ordered Abodo Chicken Rice Rice Set ($8.80) from the regular menu and the Weekly Special ($9.80), which was Hakka Yong Tau Foo with rice. The sets came with a choice of beverages.
The Abodo (or Adobo) Chicken Rice came with some salad and an egg. Chicken Adobo is a traditional dish from the Philippines, where the chicken is marinated with vinegar, soy sauce and other spices. Yang’s Abodo Chicken had a nice combination of flavours and was enjoyable. The dish reminded us of Taiwanese lu rou fan minus the sweetness but with a nice tangy kick.
The Hakka Yong Tau Foo at Yang Coffee & Toast was the dry version. It was served with a light gravy and topped with minced meat. It came with a good portion of braised vegetables. The fried bean curd pieces did not look great but they had good texture and absorbed the braising sauce well. For an extra kick, Yang has a very spicy chilli sauce to go with the yong tau foo.
Pleasant Place for Affordable Meal
Overall, we thought the food at Yang Coffee & Toast was quite tasty and enjoyable. The prices were reasonable. The new cafe in City Gate is a pleasant air-conditioned place for a nice affordable meal. We will eat there again if we are in the Jalan Sultan-Beach Road vicinity.
