Conceptualised with a desire to preserve the heritage of Katong, as well as illustrate a chill and relaxing vibe to whoever sets foot into this new space, Ambling Turtle is a new 40-seater cafe located at The Flow. Armed with a name which originates from two words – ‘Ambling’ which refers to a slow and relaxed pace, and “Katong”, which refers to a species of sea turtle that is now extinct.
