Chye Seng Huat Hardware. Opened by the folks behind Papa Palheta.
This time it's a coffee bar cum restaurant, located in the unlikeliest of places, sitting quietly in the rows of old establishments and shophouses. It was raining when we got there.
The smoke salmon sandwich ($11) was good as was the pistachio cranberry slice ($3). The bread / brioche was so soft and springy.
The cold coffee ($7) came in a bottle, much like cough syrup - strong and heavy.
Only thing, which I kept complaining to Ollie, was a distinct smell of worn sneakers wet from rain. I did notice quite a number of waiting staff and patrons had on fabric sneakers while others were dressed up looking like they belonged to the business district. Ollie said the smell was coffee, but then she's no coffee drinker. Sneakers, I say =_=
