Open Up Cafe
It is a bold statement,I know,but I’m pretty sure there has never been a more Instagram-worthy meal than the equally vibrant and delicious Rice Noodles with Pork Ribs ( In case you are a pork lover like me ) however they also have many options for vegans too.
This cafe is minimalist, retro and not so fancy however its very peaceful and you just want to relaxed here after a hectic day. Ah well ! don’t be surprised if you see the comic-books spread & stick over the rooftop interior,they just help us reminiscence our childhood.
You need to add this cafe in your must-eat list immediately if you are looking for something within a budget with quality ingredients.
