Peter Hoe Beyond

A Chinatown shopping hot spot on the Lee Rubber Building's second floor, with a comfy corner where customers can rest their feet & replenish their energy with tasty treats.

Quiches & pies dominate Peter Hoe's display counter, but we insisted on the seafood spaghetti, a special of the day on the cafe's blackboard menu. This simple, WYSIWYG pleasure won't win major awards, but it's hearty & well-prepared.

Cherry cheesecake, topped with the sweetest, juiciest fruit. We like!

Carrot & walnut cake. Its texture was kinda mushy, but the flavor was fine.

Lemon juice. Wine is also available, but only by the bottle.

After eating, check out Peter Hoe's wares, including furniture, linen & jewelry. It's like a fantastic flea market, with everything except fleas.

Break out the piggy bank! 'Tis (still) the season to be shopping.

Peter Hoe Beyond,

  2. Baby Sumo: heheh, I guess it's more of a techie term, and I'm probably using it inaccurately here. I guess what I mean is that it tastes exactly as expected from its appearance :D

  5. I loved all the craft and clutter. (Well, not really clutter, more like well-arranged wares to be sold, but you know what I mean.)

    Remember us calling that their Rainbow Pasta? So colourful! :D
