Downtown East is always a bustling place especially during weekends and school holidays. With the recent revamp of the main foyer and conversion to the E!Avenue, there is even more food options. Places like Aston, Swensen’s, Eighteen Chefs are always crowded so it was a pleasant surprise for us to find this quiet little place Cafe 69 at one corner of E!Hub. Probably due to its location right at the end of a dead end corridor, it was quiet on a busy Saturday night and only 2 tables were occupied.
We stopped to look at the menu and the owner quickly came up to us. After listening to his pitch, we decided to give it a try. We decided to follow his recommendation and ordered the beer battered fish and chips; the chicken taco and the Parmesan Crusted Salmon.
The fish and chip came first. What was interesting was the fried banana or goreng pisang and a slice of pineapple. A very interesting combination but it all went so well together with the fish and chips.
Beside the so called “Western food”, it has some local food like fried rice, curry. In addition, they also serve pizza and pasta. Prices of the food are fairly reasonable around the range of $7.00 to $20.00.
And on its website, there are some mean looking desserts. Look like I will have to go back again…
