A respite from the crazy Wkend orchard road crowd @ the island cafe

In Eating out, Food from Home, Outside Dubai, singapore on August 17, 2011 at 09:20

Need a nice little cozy place for a bite that you don’t have to queue for hours in orchard road that serves decent food at a decent price???

I present the Island cafe, the little joint that is hidden on the top floor of CK Tang. They serve the usual suspects of lamp chops, fish and chip and sirloin steaks but you shouldn’t leave without trying the local delights šŸ™‚

We had the mixed platter that consisted of wanton, fried chicken wings, satay and springrolls.

The star was the gardo-gardo. Gado-gado (Indonesian and Betawi language) or also called Lotek (Sundanese and Javanese language) is an Indonesian dish comprising a vegetable salad served with a peanut sauce dressing. It is thought to have originally been a Betawi dish.

Not the best that you can find but considering that you are able to get away from the maddening crowds, this place is a gem.
