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.
Spanning two storeys high, this predominantly wood-interior café, showcases an abundance of natural light through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, and a variety of lush greenery in the form of small leafy plants and massive central tree installation.
Complete with wall sockets and complimentary WiFi, alongside a combination of regular and plush sofa seating arrangements, this café exudes an overall minimalist yet Peranakan-home-inspired aesthetic which matches its menu!
Offering a diverse range of savoury mains, such as the $6.50 Nyonya Curry Chicken, $6.50 Satay Chicken, and $8.50 Pulled Beef Rendang, Ambling Turtle also serves a variety of delectable pastries in the form of $3.50 Croissants, $3.50 Sourdough, the $6.50 Pulut Hitam Tart, $7.50 Ondeh Ondeh Cake, $12.50 Pandan Waffles with chendol jelly, and the $12.50 Go Home Pandan Waffles which features a swirl of coconut soft serve on the side, topped by chendol jelly, Azuki red beans and gula melaka sauce.
