Nestled in the heart of Chinatown, Merchant’s Lane has earned a big name for itself and is always buzzing with locals and expats alike.

Chocha Foodstore
More lunch than brunch, but I had to include this place as it is hands down the best Asian food I’ve eaten in Asia. All of dishes (and I’ve tried quite a few now) are fresh, aromatic and flavourful with an interesting twist. The simple but incredibly well executed Biang Biang noodles blew my mind, made with homemade fat noodles, chili oil, toasted peanuts and fresh herbs. It’s wide selection of interesting salads will please veggies who can choose among courgette and cumin salad, curried cauliflower or mango rojak.
