Bright garden-themed cafe at Peranakan Place
With bars after bars lined up along Peranakan Place, it’s no surprise that the area is a frequent haunt for those looking to unwind after hours. Spicing up our options is Hej Kitchen & Bar, a bright and cheery alfresco diner helmed by the same folks behind Acid Bar and Alley Bar!
Decked in soft pastel hues with potted greens and wooden outdoor furniture, Hej Kitchen & Bar serves fuss-free, comfort cafe fare from 12PM all the way till 2AM, and has 7-hour long Happy Hour promotions from noon to dusk.
Thoughtfully placed on each table is a bowl full of conversation cards perfect for first dates, each sporting random questions that can range from a quirky “Can you lick your elbow?” to a thought-provoking “What is your deepest fear?”.
Free WiFi and powerpoints are also available all around the cafe, and diners are more than welcomed to stay there and get work done, or head into Acid Bar to beat the heat!
Hearty cafe dishes
With an aim to cater to everyone’s taste buds, Hej’s menu includes cafe staples like salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and mains. Additional Chef specials are introduced monthly, and popular items are made permanent on the menu!
For now, the best-sellers include the Angus Beef Lasagne ($20) and Crab Cake with Zesty Remoulade ($16), which comes with a generous amount of real crab meat.
Keep your eyes peeled for other comforting and hearty crowd-pleasers like Baked Mac & Cheese ($16), Buttermilk Chicken with Waffle ($26), Har Cheong Kai Wings ($12), and the staple Margherita Pizza ($18)!
Boasting an extensive beverage menu and a wide selection of wines, spirits, liqueurs, beers, and shots, Hej’s Happy Hour consists of $6 house spirits, $8 house wines, and $10 draft beers. That’s not all – additional promotions are also available, which includes $5 shots on Tuesdays after 9PM, 1-for-1 bottles from Mondays to Wednesdays, and a 3L Tiger beer tower for just $55!
Keep a lookout for the Bartender’s Specials if you’re looking for a refreshing midday pick-me-up – highly recommended are the Starfruit Gin ($18) and Apple Shandy ($20), which are both slightly tangy and very easy to drink!
