Bought a groupon voucher $25 for $50 cash voucher at Flee Away cafe. A very interesting concept of cafe meet shop! We are welcomed with a retro storefront, and stepped into a vibrant and well decorated interior. Colors used are loud and bright and they have pretty loads of old school items. It’s a place to reminisce your childhood times!
I particularly like this area of decoration (Left Picture). It gives me a very fairytale-like feeling, a very cosy and simple corner. Seems like it has been one of the top choices for many cafe owners to include a couple of traditional sewing tables as part of their cafe decoration/furniture nowadays. Doesnt this corner has the aura that of a corner in the hairdresser (Right Picture)?
I could say alot of effort is channeled to the decoration of the overall cafe outlook. Every inch of the cafe is well decorated even at the ceiling! Ceiling fan connected with fluffy white clouds. Look, there’s a gigantic orange plane hanging down the ceiling too with small little parachutes!
Small little boxes filled with stationaries, storybooks, badges, accessories etc for you to start flea-ing away!
Mirror frames filled with toys or figurines that you have at least come across once or familiarize with during your child hood days!
The menu is filled with asian fusion style and involves a good rendition of various local delights. Their signature main dish is Le Char Kuey – with le derive from french and the whole main idea of the dish is simply ‘the baguette’ with fillings. Otherwise Char Kuey is commonly known to us as ‘You tiao’ in chinese. Choices of fillings ranges from asian style to western style such as – all day breakfast filling, chicken bak kwa with crushed crackers, salmon with capers, onions & cream cheese, chicken curry, coleslaw etc! You’ll definitely be spoilt for choice. Other than Le Char Kuey, they have a couple of soup, small bites, salad, pasta and desserts.
Also, they have quite an extensive menu for beverages. A variety of coffee, tea, can drinks and milkshakes. Their milkshakes includes flavors varying from fruity to chocolatey to caffeine-y to some other creative creations.
Do check out their lunch specials which include a main and choice of hot/iced coffee/tea. I find it quite worth it!
Traditional Oreo Milkshake ($7.50) & Hazelnut Cinnamon Milkshake ($7.50)
Chicken & Turkey Bacon Cream Based ($12.50): Unlike the usual cream based, this version is more of stir fry with cream sauce, rich and aromatic but dont feel gelard after eating unlike some of the cream based pasta.
Le Char Kuey with Dry Laksa – Special fillings ($15.50): Awesome dish served with some greens and baked tortilla chips! Toasted char kuey filled with generous servings of dry laksa! And i’m not kidding, it really resemble that of a real dry laksa with eggs, beansprout, tau pok, fishcakes, noodles, all the ingredients you expect to find in a traditional laksa, you’ll find it here in your char kuey too! A piquant and delicious dish!
Irish Cream Mud Pie ($7.50): Another worth raving dessert after the meal. Creamy dark chocolate ice cream with tinge of irish cream liquor. Topped with white and dark chocolates flakes to give it the extra crunch.
Overall a very satisfying and tantalizing meal experience!
