Island Cafe at Tang Orchard is my comfort eating place, if you couldn't find any seats around Orchard, just come here and most probably you will get one.
Service is always excellent, friendly and attentive service from familiar faces. Selection of dishes are very palatable to most of patrons. It has Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Western dishes for your selection.
From what I've tried so far, the ones we like are Penang Char Kwey Tiauw, Crayfish fried rice, Chicken Rice set (the most popular as sometimes it ran out), Chicken Briyani Rice and my fave appetizer, the Tahu Telor, their version is the best one compared to others.
I do hope Tang will continue to keep the Island Cafe once they are done with renovation, it's quite a gem and anyone who comes across this cafe most likely will like it and return for 2nd time.
What I also like from this cafe is their selection of drinks, it's quite comprehensive from teas to mocktails, and special drink menu also appears for alternate months.
If you never been there and happen to be around Tang, just proceed to 4th floor and it is located at the other direction of the elevator/near the escalator.
Will return again and again...
The entrance to Cafe
View to tables along the window, they have some seats at the balcony area
Wall decor, it changed from my last visit
View from our table
I do like how the decor of this cafe, it's simple but feel the warmth and cohesive even though it has different textures, patterns and materials.
Simple menu packs with punches
The special drink of the month, I wanted to try these teas next time
The normal arrangement on table, they will change the utensils after your order if necessary.
The best I've encountered for Penang Char Kwey Tiauw in Singapore, it's definitely my liking and I could request for No Cockles. Far cry from Singapore version that usually oily, mix with yellow noodle and with sweet soya sauce.
It has prawns, squid, chinese pork sausage sans cockles as per my request
Trying the special of the month, Soursop Smoothies..Refreshing and Sourish for sure
