Tucked away near a church on Queen Street, I never would have found Mary's Kafe if not for a recommendation from a friend who worked in the area. Mary's is only open for lunch on weekdays, and specializes in home-style Eurasian cuisine.The cafe space is clean and cozy with air-con, maybe a dozen tables, and smiling ladies behind the counter. For $7 you get your choice of main course plus veggie, rice, dessert, and a drink. I chose the chicken curry which was good but not the best I've ever had (too much oil, not enough spice), but I really enjoyed the little piece of cake that came for dessert. I have no idea what it was, but it had a nice texture (coconut?).I also ordered a plate of kueh pie tee since I had never tried this Peranakan specialty before. I really liked them - crunchy, sour, sweet - lots of flavor in one little cup. Mary's is only open on weekdays for lunch, so if you're near the Singapore Art Museum check it out continue reading

This is a hidden cafe serving Eurasian food. It is located in the Kun Yan Methodist Church. It is 1 min walk from the exit A of Bras Basah MRT & very convenient. The cafe is bright and air-con simply decorated with simple table and chair. Corner of the entrance had a sofa sitting and in the middle it has a long bar top dinning table.The owner Mary Gomez serves Eurasian Food such as Chicken Debal, Feng, Eurasian Curry Puff, Salted Fish Achar and Vegetable Achar. Her value for money daily set lunch is $7 which is a choice of main dish and a drink of either lime juice, lce lemon tea, hot tea or coffee and desert for the day.Depending of the day of the week, she has 1 fixed main course served with rice depending on the day of the week. For example, Wed is Chicken Curry Debal and Thurs is chicken Buah Keluak. The other main course for the day is not fixed. On the day we were there we had Chicken Curry Debal and Pepper Pork Bell similar to Soya Sauce Pork. Check it out on http://www.marykafe.info/Marys_Kafe/Menu.htmlThe Chicken Curry Debal taste is similar to what my aunty used to cooked, but we called it the Curry chicken Devil as it can be really spicy hot. For these dishes, she put in pieces of sausage beside the chicken and potato. The gravy is a light spicy curry with no coconut milk. This dish is normally served during X'mas period using the leftover of turkey, roast pork which are added to the curry chicken. Mary version is tasty but a little oily, I would prefer to remove the chicken skin so that it is healthier. The Pepper Pork Belly is similar to Soya Sauce Pork but the pork belly is cut into big chunk & cooked with soy sauce & lots of pepper. I love the yummy gravy to go with rice but due to using Pork belly it is too oily for me. We also ordered a plate of Kueh Pie Ti for $3. The shell of the Kueh Pie Ti was commercial made & filling was quite good.The Sugee is very good and has a nice buttery and graining texture. Highly recommend at $12 a loaf of cake. If you like it with icing and marzipan, you will have to order the whole cake in advance starting from $42 for about 1.4kg.Highly recommended Pineapple Tart has a buttery melt in the mouth pastry and generous pineapple jam with the right sweetness level. continue reading
