Starting out as a humble eatery at Golden Landmark Shopping Centre and some food bazaars, Dahlia Cafe is synonymous with authentic Malay cuisine.
Now, the Malay eatery has entered the Central Business District, with a spanking new outlet at Tanjong Pagar Plaza.
Compared to its outlet in Golden Landmark, the new eatery is noticeably more spacious with more seating capacity.
This Tanjong Pagar store will continue to serve their tasty Malay food, with an extended glass wall providing diners a peek at the dishes that make up their signature Nasi Padang, or Nasi Campur.
Some familiar dishes would be the Beef Rendang, Sambal Goreng, and Sayur Lodeh, all important must-haves at any self-respecting Malay stall.
Aside from that, diners can also expect perennial favourites like Nasi Lemak, Mee Rebus, Mee Soto, pisang goreng (banana fritters), kuih-muih, and more.
Our personal favourites when we used to dine at the Golden Landmark outlet were their Nasi Ayam Penyet and Nasi Ayam (basically any rice dish with chicken that is available).
We hope they also offer these perennial Malay dishes at the new outlet as well.
If you are not in the CBD but still keen on giving Dahlia Cafe a try, they do provide islandwide delivery via the order form on their Instagram page.
Dahlia Cafe is Muslim-owned and located at 1 Tanjong Pagar Plaza #01-03 (new) and 390 Victoria Street, #02-21/22 Golden Landmark.
