At the same time, the kitchen also goes creative by incorporating different ingredients to come up with something new yet carrying authentic elements, such as Bacon with Roe Chawanmushi and Chicken Omelette Roll for daily casual dining. We had the Chicken Omelette Roll which is juicy on its texture and the fragrant eggy flavor are just perfect and melts in our mouth with the tender chicken meat. It is topped with the bonito flakes which makes the dish even better.

The coated salted egg on the chicken itself brings us with the savory blend which is just perfect and goes well beer.
If you are favour for some lovely Indian delights, the Roti Prata which is from Jalan Kayu Prata is one of the highly recommended by the food atrium owner, Mr Willie Tay.

The Assorted Rojak is more to the Indian Style Rojak where the rojak is piled up with lots of ingridients which incude prawn fritters, fried egg, onions, chilli, and cucumber. It is then being drizzled with the savory sauce which is creamy and light sweetness in it. Not much of spiciness, but it is just savory enough to tempt us to try more.
