More than Coffee

Whether its the name or exterior, Coffee Stars by Dao looks like a coffee and cakes place.

Some weeks ago, I popped in for a cup of coffee and sandwich.

a very strong cup of coffee

It was a pleasant surprise to discover that they have one full page of vegetarian menu. I made a mental note to come back again for their Thai food.

It was yesterday that I finally met up with a friend there for dinner, a friend that I haven't met up for years!

vegetarian tom yum soup

I find it hard to find clear tom yum soup in Singapore, more so the vegetarian version. It is a must order item when I see it on the menu. And it turned out great, loaded with different kinds of mushrooms. Certainly much better than the red-tom yum, which I always find too oily.

Wanton Pra Thai

I actually ordered this by mistake, thinking that it is wanton skin with the pra thai noodles, so I was a bit disappointed when it came only with the wanton skin. Tasty but its better shared with 3-4 persons as the taste does get monotonous after some time.

A nice pot of lemongrass to round up the dinner

Unfortunately, we were too full for cakes at the end of the meal. So that will be for the next trip.


  1. Interesting thai fare served with coffee.

  2. Have you been there before? I would like to try more stuff next time...
