Named after the owner's own furry friend, a community cafe for local nyonya faves, peddling artisanal twists like ice-cream Sambal. Then by night, it's a tomahawk grilling steakhouse with sides of fiery Char Kway Teow. Don't forget to ask and get Tuak-tail's from Borneo. Yes, please.

Hidden courtyard bakery with to-die-for sourdough in all forms including tartines, cheese sandwiches and platters. Go for the chicken liver pate or smoked salmon tartine, and finish off with a slice of wholesome sourdough banana bread or cookie.
