There aren’t many cafes that blend lifestyle, fashion and food as seamlessly as Greyhound Café does. Originally from Bangkok, Greyhound Café is rapidly expanding across South East Asia with its first outlet in Singapore set to open in November 2016. Mark your calendars, all you cafe hoppers and fashionistas!
Lucky for us, Greyhound Café has already opened in Kuala Lumpur and we couldn’t wait to hop over to check out what the hype is all about. Here’s a glimpse of what we can expect in Singapore soon.
Opened in March 2016, Greyhound Café KL is an interior decorator’s dream come true. The ambience is undeniable and a true reflection of the Greyhound Café concept of creating a tasteful and casual dining experience.
Greyhound Café may primarily be a Thai restaurant, but the menu is far from traditional. Besides serving Thai classics like Tom Yum Koong and Phad Thai, the Café also features more of a fusion cuisine.
The Noodle with Braised Beef Soup (RM 26) was a hearty portion of rice noodles, tender braised beef and beef balls in a robust broth. Think Thai spin on bee hoon noodle soup and add some fish sauce for that extra salty kick.
Corned beef is not something you often see in a Thai Restaurant so the Spaghetti with Corned Beef and Fresh Chillies (RM 29) was an intriguing choice. Prepared aglio olio style, the salty corned beef paired very nicely with the spicy and sweet red chillies.
The winner for us was the Banoffee (RM18) dessert. We were torn between getting it or the more traditional mango sticky rice and ended up with this… If you must ask, we regret nothing.
Essentially a mason jar layered with crushed Oreo, smooth sea salt caramel, banana and fresh vanilla cream, this dessert is what dreams are made of.
Greyhound Café KL is one cool space to dine in, but I would expect nothing less given Greyhound’s reputation in the fashion and food industry. I’m excited to see what they bring to Singapore but if you’re like us and can’t wait, Kuala Lumpur isn’t that far away for a preview of what’s to come!
