You know what amazes me about Singapore? The coffee is consistently excellent pretty much everywhere I’ve been. And it’s not like there’s a blooming coffee culture in Singapore they apparently just know how to make everything taste good.
Right near the Economics Department is Humble Origins, a little outdoor cafe where the coffee is really special. Among the best on-campus coffee places I have been to anywhere in the world. It’s also located in a spot where students and faculty are headed in various directions between classes so its a great people-watching spot.
(Yesterday I noticed that nobody in Singapore wears sunglasses. If anybody can explain this to me I am very curious. )
They sell muffins (good) and sandwiches (didn’t try) but they no longer sell French toast (??).
