We read about this cafe online and made it our first place of interest upon arriving in the highlands. The café’s décor is interesting to say the least, and if you’re Dutch or and fan of the Dutch football team this is the place for you.

House of Oranje?
no dutch ladies?

Food-wise, it really did not live up to expectations and apart from the lamb chop that Brendan enjoyed everything else was pretty bland. Bearing in mind our motto of looking for the everyday food for the everyday man, this place was pretty pricey in that food and drinks ran up to almost RM90.

let's eat!

Service-wise, like most other upmarket establishments here you will get treated better if you’re Caucasian, and get treated not-so-well if you’re not (if you know what I mean). Some things and some people never change, its fine if you chase after euros, pounds and dollars but just remember it’s the ringgit that keeps you afloat!

heavy downpour, showers of blessing?


This will be our first and last time here.
