Singapore’s cultural diversity is well represented on the menu of this cheerful blue and yellow café: Dip your roti canai (a traditional flatbread) into rich Indian curry sauce. Or try the unique assam laksa: noodles in a rich fish broth enlivened by fresh mint, red onion and cucumber. Fish-head curry looks exactly as you’d expect, but don’t be frightened by the sharp teeth; the cheek meat is tender and bathed in an earthy sauce of okra and eggplant. Desserts include traditional Singapore ice (red beans, corn and lime Jell-O buried beneath shaved ice and a vivid red sauce) and coconut pudding, which is presented in a scooped-out coconut shell with a jaunty cocktail umbrella, for a touch of tiki.
