LA' COFFEE – Farrer Park

Even before it has officially opened, the minute I saw the signage La’ Coffee along Rangoon Road, I knew it’s something to look out for. First off, being beside the famous Old Hen café, you’re bound to rub elbows with a café powerhouse; you’re bound to get a good start – and with a whole lot of inventiveness and patriotic passion, mixing Singapore’s signature old coffee favorites, such as the Kopi-Os and Teh Tariks, with newfound ideas, like the Ang-Moh Noodles (which I think is ingenious, for name’s sake), you’re bound to get a hit. Traditional Coffee served in a modern atmosphere, yes.

How to get to the La’ Coffee Cafe, Rangoon Road

From the nearest MRT line, the Farrer Park circle line, you’d have to walk less than five minutes. If you know where the Old Hen Coffee Bar is, even better. It’s literally beside it – with big bold coffee colored letters and wall to wall glass entrance. Rangoon Road cafes are rampant, yes. If you happen to go here in the early afternoon, you’ve hit the sweet spot of café hopping siesta on this place.

But. Where’s the modern café hopping patriotism in that? Here at the La’ Coffee café, their approach is pretty straightforward and supportive of the Singapore’s local local almost forgotten coffee favorites.
