Tarik: 78 Arab Street
Simple, to the point and delivers what its name promises. Inconspicuously tucked away amidst the many fabric shops that line Arab Street, the smell of spices wafting from the shop would probably hit you before you spot it.
A shop mainly catered towards takeaway, their menu hosts an assortment of drinks at very affordable prices. From Saffron tea to Milk tea, there is a drink for every craving.
Aside from drinks, Tarik also sells light bites such as samosas and sandwiches. They also have desserts like ondeh-ondeh cake and brownies. If you are quick enough, you may even get your hands enough on their lunch bento set.
What’s better, is that if you book a staycation at Heritage Collection on Arab, the Tarik is just right beside teh entrance of our hotel! With a drink in your hand, you can explore Kampong Glam and not worry about venturing on a sunny day.
