Nostalgic dining at W39

Newly opened café W39 has tasty, moist cakes and other good nosh

When you enter W39 for the first time, you’ll get a shot of nostalgia with its vintage décor and little souvenirs from your childhood sold at the counter.

These knick-knacks include erasers with flags printed on them, Push-Pop lollies and gold-coin chocolates. Apart from this, the café also serves good grub.

The brainchild of Jasmine and Jamie Lu, sisters who both have training from At-Sunrice Global Chef Academy, W39’s menu comprises European-style dishes as well as fluffy cakes and bread.

Off to a Good Start

We liked the Seared Tuna topped with Avocado Salsa, Soy Glaze, Wasabi Mayo and Trout Caviar ($12.50) for sharing.

The tender, well-seared pieces of tuna went well with the accompanying accoutrements. They also have a very tender Steak & Fries ($28.50). Ours, medium rare and with mushroom sauce, was great.

The fries were also excellent. We polished them off in mere minutes and hankered for more.

You should also try the Sake Mussels with Fries ($20), tossed in olive oil, garlic and sake for a potent flavour. The juicy Roasted Spatchcock, Mushroom Gravy and Roasted Vegetables ($24.50) also make a hearty meal.

Mouth-watering Cakes

The cake-counters show off an impressive array of cakes from their signature chocolate cake to popular favourites such as Red Velvet Cake and Salted Caramel Cake ($6.80 a piece, $58 for a whole cake). They also have cheesecakes and tiramisu.

A breakfast menu is served from 9am to 3pm on weekends and public holidays, with the works. Expect fluffy pancakes, bacon and eggs, and eggs Benedict.

W39 has an extensive beer, cider and wine section as well.
