We were looking for Meximama at Marina Mall in Lapu-Lapu City when we chanced upon a small open-air cafe serving Singaporean cuisine.

The Simply Singapore Style Cafe offers popular Singaporean fare like mee goreng and chicken rice and even such Malay-inspired dish as nasi goreng.

Nasi goreng Simply Singapore Style Cafe

FRESH INGREDIENTS. The nasi goreng served at the Simply Singapore Style Cafe at Marina Mall in Lapu-Lapu City is made from fresh ingredients, according to its chef. It’s P150 per order and comes with fresh iced tea.

Singaporean Allan Perry and his Cebuana wife Margie operate the cafe, which they opened only this month.

Perry said he would like to introduce Singaporean dishes at affordable prices to Cebuanos. He stressed that he uses only fresh ingredients for all his dishes. Even his iced tea is made fresh and not mixed from powdered juices.

IN MACTAN. The cafe is located at the Marina Mall in Lapu-Lapu City. Singaporean Allan Perry and his Cebuana wife Margie opened it just this month.

The menu carries regular dishes like the Singapore fried rice, bak kut teh, and chicken curry. Perry added that he also plans to introduce a few new dishes every week.

When it comes to ingredients and presentation, Perry’s nasi goreng isn’t really the same as the Malay dish we had at Bali during our summer travel but it follows the general concept of the rice mix. His nasi goreng costs P150 per order and comes with drinks.

I liked his version of the mee goreng, which you can choose to have spicy, except that I think the noodles were too soft.

Chicken Laksa

We’re definitely returning to try out the other selection in the menu: roti john (an omelette sandwich that’s a popular Malay breakfast fare), prawn mee soup, and Chinese fried rice.

The Simply Singapore Style Cafe is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. It occupies a small kiosk beside Meximama and shares a common dining space with the Mexican restaurant. The cafe is located near Marina Mall’s parking space in the back.
