Another cute cafe and we’re super excited about what this place has to offer! The theme of the cafe is heavily influenced by the ‘Jio’ which means the fruit, banana in Hokkien.

Their brand new space is absolutely welcoming, and not to mention Instagram-worthy with the combo of yellow and pink colour that make perfect sense together.
A must-order is definitely the Lady In Red. The presentation of this dessert is the most enchanting one. First, they dipped a real rose into nitrogen liquid to harden it and then proceed to break the petals onto the plate. Trust me, your feed will look so much cooler!
