I am hankering for the yummy ham sandwich at Selfish Gene Cafe. Tastes as good as what I’ve had at Cedele and at slightly kinder prices. The ambience at the cafe is much nicer too, although harder to get to as it’s not located within a mall or next to an MRT – but that’s a good thing sometimes. Coffee and chocolate drinks here – so much better than Cedele. That I can say with certainty, although I have to admit that Cedele sandwiches are pretty darn good.
The Rose tea came with a wonderful scent – but only thing these are not real tea leaves but in a bag. Looked more like tea dust, but I thought the little pine tray and the way it was displayed – so lovely.
It’s one place I have felt really relaxed and I hope it keeps that laid back vibe. In a way blogging about it makes it less of a secret, and I hope it doesn’t get too crowded. Guess I am selfish that way too although I do want the owners to succeed. The people here are all so polite and nice and I’d rather talk about places like these than more snooty ones who don’t value customers.
As we were walking from Tanjong Pagar MRT to our destination at 40 Craig Road saw this quote we liked at a nearby store.
