Brunch at Curious Palette on Prinsep Street Singapore

Curious Palette

It has taken us a while, but we finally got to have brunch at Curious Palette, another of the hot cafes in Singapore that seem to attract a strong following.  Curious Palette is located in a shophouse on Prinsep Street Singapore. The entrance is quite nondescript. There is no real signboard, just a small blackboard on a chair announced its presence. Yet it was full of people – we were fortunate to get a table without a reservation. It was soon full house in this cafe.

Set Lunch at The Bravery Cafe

Bravery Cafe Horne Road

The Bravery Cafe

The owners of The Bravery Cafe are quite brave. The cafe was one of the first to be located in Horne Road, when it was a rather unfashionable area. You can’t really tell that it is a cafe from the outside save that “Bravery” is painted on one of the pillars. The facade is made of perspex panels and there is no obvious door. You have to guess which one of the panels functions as a door. The decor inside is as basic as it gets. The furniture, if you could call it that, look makeshift or salvaged from schools’ technical workshops. They currently have a weekday set lunch priced at just $12.90. They advertised the set lunch with a chalk board – which is not placed just outside the cafe but across the road, leaning on a tree.

STRAY by FATCAT @ Orchard Central

Some fat cats from Bedok have strayed out of their location in the east and settled on new territory in Orchard Road. The new STRAY by FATCAT Orchard Central cafe was opened in January 2017 by the people behind the FatCat Ice Cream Bar at Bedok . We may not be felines, but we were just as curious to try the food at the new restaurant which they describe on their Facebook as “…a brand new concept restaurant serving progressive Chinese cuisine”.

Dal.komm Coffee Singapore opens in Centrepoint

The new Dal.komm Coffee Singapore cafe opened in Centrepoint recently. Just as  Katz’s Delicatessen became well-known by hosting the famous scene of Meg Ryan’s contrived happiness in When Harry Met Sally, Dal.komm Coffee is well-loved by fans of Korean drama hit – Descendants Of The Sun (DOTS).  According to their website, the cafe was launched by Danal, a mobile payment company. The name comes from combining “Dal” from Danal and “komm” which is “come” in German to form the phrase “come to Danal”.
