Mr Teh Tarik Cartel – Flavorfully Stretched Teas

You know how Sunday should be spent? Quietly. Hence, I’d say this post shouldn’t be long, even if it’s still in the middle of the work week and there isn’t any connection to Sunday at all. Haha. But you know what? I was here at the Mr. Teh Tarik Cartel one late Sunday afternoon this month, and surprisingly, the place was completely drained of people. The place, which normally is as busy as a concert scene, is quiet and laidback. This is a different kind of sweet escape in the middle of the city indeed.

There are many stalls around the area where you can find Mr Teh Tarik Cartel. Nonetheless, the one in Raffles is probably the best one, because it’s smacked in the middle of all the business, social, and cultural landscapes. From the Raffles MRT Station, just a few blocks away, probably 10 minutes of walking, you’ll reach the Clarke Quay-like scene of the area, but a much tamed version of it.

If you are looking for a signature Singaporean style coffee shop, one that is relatively cheap but unquestionably good, then this is the one to try. The open area is quite similar to that of hawker centers. The drink variants are the highlights here, because aside from the excellent taste, the servings are big enough for two people. What’s more interesting is the fact that it actually is a halal café, serving a mix of Indian and Malay food and drinks. Multiculturalism at its coffee-finest.

The Teh Tarik is one of the best that I’ve tasted. For only 2 SGD, the Iced Coffee Cino's smooth and consistent taste just makes you want to finish the bucket-like size drink. I’m all for place too, so I appreciate how the place is friendly, because even if on a lazy Sunday afternoon, where everything seems to be empty, this place is gratified with people from all walks of Singapore life. There are expats, tourists, and locals all sitting in one area, enjoying the situation as it is. It's not as crowded as it normally is, but seeing these people just gives the cafe a life of it's own. It’s pretty amazing how café can make such an impact, even on a lazy day.

Address: 135 Amoy Street, #01-01 Far East Square
Opening Hours: Daily 6:00 A.M. – 8:00 P.M.
