Tip: order the peanut soup, it’s so good! Just as the curry, spareribs, sweet potato fries and the delicious desserts by the way. Visit this restaurant with an empty stomach, you want to have a bite of everything. The cocktails are really good as well. These are prepared with a lot of love in front of you and served in super cute ‘glass’. If you can’t choose, please tell them what you want to eat, they’ll make a cocktail that matches with your dish. How nice is that?!
