There will days when you crave for a simple thai meal. If they happen to have good desserts to complete the meal, then this will definitely be the perfect place. Sharing the same kitchen as YingThai Palace at Purvis Street, Cafe Pal is owned by the son.
This cafe serves thai food in a casual and cosy environment. My girlfriend and i decided to order something simple as we were both not too hungry on that day and wanted to keep some stomach space for desserts.
My choice for the day… soupy tom yam rice noodles soup as our mains. Food was good ! The tom yum broth was tasty with a good balance, not overly sour. They have changed some of them menu since i last went many months back. Simple sets of main course with a drink is now available price of below $15.
We ordered some chicken wings for sharing. The serving was small but marinate was tasty. Good portion size for ladies or people who wants variety.
The famous coconut cake at Cafe Pal. The desserts here are all baked fresh daily by the owner who has a great interest in baking. I have to say this is one of the better coconut cake I have tried. the sponge cake was mildly sweetened with layers of fresh grated coconuts in between the layers.
The highlight of the day .. green tea chiffon cake with warm kaya! it was to die for! I am not a usual fan for kaya but i have to say the home made kaya was really yummy with the light and not-so-sweet chiffon cake!
This is a nice cafe even for afternoon tea. i will sure come back for more.
