This bakery and coffee shop, tucked next to the equally low-key Furama, specializes in Hong Kong-style delights such as milk tea or dai-pai-dong
, a mixture of black tea sweetened with evaporated milk. Grab a seat and sip away among an eclectic mix of brown faux-brick floor tiles, Asian dioramas and a couple of scale model powerboats. Unique offerings include horse cake, a gargantuan rice crispy-like treat made with puffed rice, sausage and onion buns (think Chinese-style pigs in a blanket flavored with chives) and sweet corn buns dotted with a confetti of niblets.
Average cost: <$10
