Despite being labelled as an IT-focused mall, the newly-reopened Funan is home to a myriad of new F&B concepts and stores. From bubble tea to protein bowls and ice cream, Funan is quite the budding hot spot in Singapore.
From the same people who brought us Chye Seng Huat Hardware, PPP Coffee (previously known as Papa Palheta) has opened in the revamped Funan. Serving up an extensive range of single-origin filter coffees, pastries and other signature brews, it’s a great place to stop by if you need a quick pick-me-up.
Nestled in the centre of Funan, PPP Coffee is one great place to grab a quick cuppa after a scrumptious lunch at the many new F&B shops at the refurbished mall. Just walking up to the cafe, we were greeted by the strong aroma of freshly brewed espresso.
We ordered a refreshing Iced White (S$7), made with their signature Throwback Blend of coffee beans. It contains beans from India and Columbia, giving it a rich dark chocolate and hazelnut note.
The coffee was very smooth and not acidic at all. The blend would appeal to those who love their coffee heavy bodied and on the bitter side.
We also enjoyed a Lemon Meringue Tart (S$7) and were pleasantly surprised by the tart as the curd was zesty and vibrant despite looking a little pale. The crunchy tart base and the petite meringue topping chased the acidic tang of the lemon curd perfectly.
Other than just western pastries, PPP Coffee serves up some colourful kuehs, honouring its Singaporean roots. Some kuehs you can expect are the ever-popular Ang Ku Kueh (S$2.50) and their signature Coffee-Infused Gula Melaka Ondeh Ondeh (S$1.20).
