Expect favourites such as chicken satay with crunchy peanut sauce ($9), Hokkien mee ($16), char kway teow with prawns and scallops ($16) and nasi briyani ($10).
There is also a spin on roti prata, Chilli Crab In A Prata Bag (seasonal pricing), where the saucy crustacean is nestled in crisp prata.
The drinks menu features iced brewed coffee ($6) and cocktails such as Singapore Cocktail and Long Island Tea (from $12).
