There’re also fruit stall here if you want to take home some tropical fruit.

And here are the menu. There are western and asian cuisine to be pick. FYI, western food also served here as early as noon rather than after 3 pm like other restaurant.

Special menu here. Dare to try???


Lucky me I was accompanied by fellow blogger, Mekchu and Wildcutecat.

You can see the kitchen from your seat and make sure that the food is cleanly prepared.

This is my choice. Nasi Goreng Public Phone (Public Phone Fried Rice). Quite unique name isn’t it??
