MUST-VISIT CAFES: PART 4

MR & MS CAFE

Enter Mr. & Ms. Cafe and you’ll be greeted with friendly hellos and a warm, inviting space with plenty of seating. Furniture is simple yet chic, while the addition of props – a moustache for the gentlemen and red lips for the ladies – on every table adds a fun element and provides plenty of selfie opportunities. Bask in the sun on a cushy sofa by a huge window or strike up a conversation with the barista behind an unfinished concrete bar top that blends seamlessly with hanging light bulbs and exposed piping for that ever popular industrial vibe. Either way, it’s easy to get comfortable at this cafe.

SKILLET AT 163
Taking Mediteca’s spot in Fraser Place, Skillet at 163 is a chic restaurant offering an experimental menu where Asian flavours feature heavily in modern European dishes. The heavy use of black in the interiors is contrasted by wooden furniture, adding a touch of elegance to the settings. Accented by splashes of bright yellow, high ceilings make the space feel larger and airier. With seating that can comfortably accommodate big groups to an intimate window table for two, Skillet at 163 guarantees a classy outing. The chicken otak mille-feuille showcases the restaurant’s imagination when it comes to food. Equally as delicious as it is beautiful, the fragrant and slightly spicy chicken otak is layered with crisp wonton skins and complemented perfectly by a sweet, nutty percik sauce.
