A cafe specialising in Western and Malaysian cuisine recently opened in Aljunied.

Known as Teahouse 1973, they wish to present the best of Malaysian culture and cuisine with their traditional recipes handed down through the ages.

Their high tea set for two costs just S$35, which as you may have noticed, is considerably cheaper than many places in Singapore.

The selection of cakes also changes every day.

A customer who visited on Feb. 17 noted that the high tea set prices were nett.
