Full of energetic vibe, the exuberant Cafe 1961 at Station 18 serves delectable food with an artsy charm.
The chalk arts on the black walls are really awesome; sitting under any of them would immediately create a hip and chic backdrop for a selfie.
This time, my sister happened to be cafe-hopping with me and she was my model for the day . Totally love the vibrant peacock, the pink little elephant and of course my sister too !
Here are a few more art works with sheep, unicorn and a “hello there”.
The mint hot chocolate (RM 9) is just ok, but it did make me laugh with its “Drink Me Lah !” (You don’t worry lah, I will sure drink you !)
The mushroom soup in a cup (RM 7) is viscous, creamy, yet lightly textured with mushroom bits.
The baked Portuguese rice (RM 15) is a carbohydrate-rich dish, where a bed of succulent chicken with curry and melted cheese blanket an aromatic portion of egg fried rice. The Portuguese flavor reminds me of Japanese curry rice, but only this one has a more noticeable flavor of tumeric.
The peppery pan fried chicken (RM 17) is a generous portion and extremely tender, paired with chewy spaghetti marinara and crisp salad.
The cafe doesn’t have a lot of things on the menu (as usual) – other items include croissants, burgers and spaghetti.
But then you don’t need too many choices when the cafe is good at making the few things they have. And all you really need, is love and a good cup of coffee 🙂
