The food in this restaurant is great - beef rendang is to die for. If you are visiting Kampong Glam then this is the place for Minankabau (Padang) food from West Sumatra.

Nice location and food choice for a leisurely Sunday breakfast. The local servings of Lontong, Mee Rebus , Mee Siam and Nasi Padang are superb. It's always a nice feeling to be at Arab Street/Kampong Glam. Not too crowded and and nice shophouses to visit.

This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers
an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk
