Fifth Palate

Fifth Palate @ Encorp Strand Mall, Post-Merdeka

Takeaway: We tried the seasonal menu at Fifth Palate (no longer available) as well as another dish from their ordinary menu and were impressed enough to recommend this place as a go-to cafe destination. For food, at least! And particularly if you’re in the area.   In today’s review, we look at a number of limited-time-only dishes from Fifth Palate …
