Sometimes good things can happen when things go wrong.

There we were, at our hotel lobby, wondering what to eat and where to go, when it started drizzling. A full rainstorm would ensue later, but since we were in the Bugis heritage area, there was still time to wander around and check out options closer to the hotel.

(Plus, this is Singapore. It’s not exactly the largest place in the world.)

As luck would have it, barely a couple of minutes away by foot, we found a café nestled at the corner of a row of refurbished shophouses. Enter Curious Palette at Prinsep St.

With a palette (oh you know I meant to say that) of muted tones – whites, greys, earthy and woodsy browns – the café was cool but cosy. Not quite warm and not quite glacial. Perfect for the rainy afternoon that we found ourselves sans plans.

Coffee, by the good folks of Strangers’ Reunion, was decent; the food colourful. What stood out was the staff, a team of friendly faces that one doesn’t take for granted, even when it’s called the service industry.

We left with a bag of beans to brew at home, which is always a good sign, no?

原本風和日麗的早晨忽然飄雨來,打亂了原來的計劃。
不想在雨天出門的我們,於是打起了在酒店附近解決早餐的注意。
上網找了找,還真讓我們找到一家距離酒店不遠的咖啡館,
而且口碑也不錯,那就是Curious Palette。

Curious Palette是Stranger Reunion的姐妹館,
記得幾年前曾在Stranger Reunion喝過他們家的咖啡,印象還挺好的,
加上進門不久就可以看到烘豆機,想來這的咖啡也不差。
洋灰墻搭配木質桌椅,佈置方面也許樸實無華,
不過我點的藝妓味道著實不錯,香氣和口感都很合我意。
加上那多汁的手撕豬肉配上酸麵包,
這突如其來的一場雨,帶來了一份驚喜。
