AEIOU Cafe

I hadn’t planned on visiting any cafes yesterday as the parents were going to take us to try this delicious fish soup stall in Jalan Besar that they had recently discovered. It’s at this coffeeshop that has a multi-storey car park attached to it. Alas, because it was the Labour Day holiday, the stall was closed!

So we turned down King George’s Avenue, where we immediately spotted a tiny sign proclaiming “CAFE Restaurant”. The truth be told, the exterior looked really run down, with what appeared to be several of the oldest and dirtiest looking furniture placed outside. It was really Retro taken to the extreme if you ask me, but I later found out that these were all up cycled furniture! Certainly all very Instagram-friendly, but not very welcoming we all agreed. Still, the menu with an emphasis on clean eating did win us over eventually.

The only thing is, it was missing some sort of a carbo, so we ordered the $2.90 garlic bread to go along with it.
