I have always been reluctant to share another hidden gem to the public as when the place is exposed, it will become very crowded. However, as a foodie it is my responsibility to share out this place as it is worth to visit and it is one of the most affordable place for breakfast.


Cafe 5001 is a cosy and nice coffee stall. It is located inside the relocated Fettes Park market. Besides the regular coffee and toasts, there are also many hawker stalls around which complete this food court.

Men’s Kitchen, Lebuh Armenian – Tastefully Durian Delight

For durian lovers, the usual months of durian season in May – July will not be sufficient to cater for their huge cravings. I used to be one of them who will hunt for great durians everywhere and like any other durian lovers I can eat a plate of plain white rice served with fresh durians. For health reasons, I am cutting down the intake of durians. But this does not stop me from trying out food made out of fresh durians.

The shop is known as Men’s Kitchen. This is the place that focuses on food and drinks made out of durian.
