The food at Indocafe is exquisitely refined, executed with much finesse, and service was, notwithstanding the lack of a dinner crowd, attentive, genuine and warm.
1) Kueh Pie Tee
($10): deconstructed for DIY-aficionados, choc-a-bloc with a gazillion ingredients; crabmeat, prawns, pork belly. mushrooms, turnips, carrots and French beans. Although a sweetish garlicky chilli sauce rode alongside, ask for their sambal belachan instead. Its pungent fiery spice is much more compatible with the light clear taste of the filling.If you run out of kueh pie tee cups before you're done with the stuffing, they're more than happy to refill the cups.
2) Chap Chye
($14): best rendition ever! The cabbage, carrots, black fungus, beancurd skin, prawns, and pork skin harmonized into a symphony of varied textures and sweetness in a rich but balanced prawn stock base.
3) Tau Yu Bak
($22): a seldom seen dish in Peranakan restaurants but very often served in most Nonya households; meltingly tender and thoroughly flavourful, having infused all of that luscious premium dark soy
4) Pulot Hitam
($8): sweetened black glutinous rice porridge swirled with salted coconut milk. This possessed a controlled sweetness that was good to the last drop, but the consistency could have been a little tighter and thicker.
