Nestled in the food enclave of Teck Chye Terrace in the quieter Serangoon neighborhood lies Scissors Paper Stove, a homely café named after the popular childhood game. Its intentionally colorful store front will certainly catch attention from a distance, and entice one inside where even more hues in its interiors greet customers – a refreshing change from monochromatic trends found in most of other café joints.
Both kids and adults will welcome their Asian-fusion tapas menu (2 for S$20, 4 for S$36, or 6 for S$48), filled with a smorgasbord of 16 food options in total. From sizzling hot Iberico Pork Belly to Calamari drizzled in mayonnaise, having multiple choices on your dining table is a great way to share and sample everything. What’s more, the tapas dishes are served inside vibrant shades of old-school tingkat boxes, which will evoke a sense of nostalgia among the older crowd, while intriguing the younger ones.
For those who prefer sticking to their own portions instead, the main dishes will delight as well. Seafood lovers should try the Cartafata main (S$28) – a combination of fish, prawns and mussels with lemongrass herbs on a steaming side of Thai fried rice that combines Spanish flavors effortlessly with Thai seasonings. As for desserts, little ones will undoubtedly excite over the gooey-chocalate Lava Cake (S$8), or the irresistible Pandan Churros (S$5) for a sweet finish.
The menu options are considerably extensive, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Families looking for a casual joint with a variety of cuisines.
