The Muzium Cafe @ 9 Bali Lane

I couldn’t believe my eyes when the bill was presented. Rick’s set lunch was S$10! Not a nett price but still! In one of the world’s most expensive city, can one really enjoy a more than decent but actually wholesome meal which includes an appetiser/soup, main course, coffee and dessert, even though it’s a small … Continue reading
