Tiong Bahru is a foodie’s heaven for good reason—whether it is traditional Nyonya kueh you’re looking for, lor mee with shark meat nuggets or gorgeous cafés that you want to hop to, the area will not disappoint.
Joining the slew of eateries and cafés in Tiong Bahru is newly-opened 4+U Bar & Kitchen, a minimalistic café nestled just a 5-minute walk away from the train station.
On top of typical brunch fare, 4+U Bar & Kitchen also offers value-for-money set lunches at just S$8.50 nett. Now, who says that dining in cafes will be an expensive affair?
Decked in simple white furnishings, the 40-seater eatery is a café by day and bar by dawn.
If you happen to pop by for lunch during weekdays, their lunch deals will give you the most bang for your buck. Choose from 5 pasta options and pair your meal with a choice of coffee or soft drink for just S$8.50 nett!
The Lumaconi Pasta with Chicken and Cream features a generous helping of shell-shaped pasta and chicken breast pieces tossed in a cream sauce, before being topped off with cherry tomatoes and greens for the final touch.
We also ordered up a portion of Spaghetti Pulled Pork Ragu in Pomodoro Sauce and preferred it to the former dish.
Tossed in a tangy tomato sauce, we were pleased that the chefs did not skimp on the amount of pulled pork in the pasta dish. Each strand is nicely coated in the Pomodoro sauce that came slightly thick and chunky.
For diners who wish to have something heartier, their main menu offers a myriad of both sweet and savoury delights such as Waffle Egg Benedict (S$18), Duck Off (S$18) and Cinnapple Crumble (S$11).
