The last section has Kueh Lapis Surabay, Blueberry Muffin and Praline.

Overall the food is great. Although the spread looks limited, but I am too full to try all. Service is swift. The place is not crowded. Guess it is still new and a lot of people still do not know about it. Total bill for 3 adults is $90.05 after discount.
