Lou Shang Cozy Cafe By Day And Bay By Night In Singapore

Hidden HDB-Themed Cafe-Bar

Lou Shang

We all know that there are plenty of cafes and bars in Singapore. It almost seems like at every corner of a street, you’ll find a place to quell your brunch cravings or a drink to wind down your day. But hidden cafes and bars are quickly rising in trend, and one that you should definitely check out on your next jaunt with the kiddos is Lou Shang.

Meaning “upstairs” in Chinese, this cozy cafe by day and bar by night is literally found upstairs, after ascending a lift inside Mama Diam. What greets you is a seating area that will look similar to HDB void decks and corridors – a classic representation of Singapore culture.

Similar to the interiors, the food is also influenced by local culture. Some highlights you can expect include the Rainbow Roti (SG$10) for breakfast, Chilli Crab-tivating (SG$20) which is a chilli crab pasta, and  White Pepper Cream Potato Gnocchi (SG$18).

Cap your meal off with unique drinks and dessert too, such as the Banana Peanut Cake (SG$10), Hochinchow (SG$8) and Gula Melaka Tiramisu (SG$13). With so many interesting option, Lou Shang has to be experienced to be believed.
