Aku Cafe & Gallery

Cafe in Chinatown, Merdeka Square & Bukit Nanas

This intimate, art-filled cafe serves good hand-drip brews, ice-blended drinks, and juices from pressed apple to banana smoothie. Light meals and pasta dishes are outshone by the inventive dessert menu. There are some unusual craft souvenirs for sale, too.

Keep climbing the stairs to find the contemporary-arts space Lostgens'.
