Tucked away in the stretch of shophouses on Dunlop Street, Rouse can be easy to miss because of their simple shop front. But if you spot it and step into the cafe, the intimate setting will instantly make you feel at home. Rouse has a quaint industrial-style interior with beautiful low-hanging bulbs and art murals on the walls.
Looking for a cosy space with free wifi to get some work done? Rouse is a lovely Muslim-owned cafe with great fresh coffee, and the food served here are pretty wholesome too.
We like how the fusion dishes served here are nothing too far-fetched and still very easy on the palates.
Small bites such as the addictive Sweet Potato Fries (S$7.90) and Orange-Glazed Chicken Wings (S$12.90) are great options for a bigger group to share, but of course, we won’t judge you even if you order a serving for yourself.
If you are thinking basic cafe fare such as Eggs Benedict and Carbonara, Rouse took a step further and will delight with their fusion creations such as the Tandoori Chicken Linguine. Effort was definitely put in in this dish and we love the traditional rub and marinate to the chicken thighs to give it full flavour. The linguine was tossed in a lot of garlic and parmesan, for a bonus flavour-enhancer.
