This winsome new neighbourhood cafe founded by friends Joanne (she manages stuff) & Li May (she cooks stuff) infuses a homey, personal touch into its setting & food - Papa Yong's Spaghetti Bolognese (RM17.90) strives to replicate the pleasures of a pasta that Li May's father relished on a trip to Switzerland in 1975, while the GNS (RM10.50; a glass noodle salad) is a nod to the northern Thai heritage of the chef's mom. Fresh, no-fuss flavours, washed down with lemongrass tea & cha yen.

Kitchen commandant Aunty Sue, whose family hails from Penang, keeps a steady watch over Ho Li Chow's Malaysian comfort-fare offerings; the selection is compact, but everything's worth sampling, from the rich, hearty lam mee (RM10) to the assam laksa, enjoyably tasty though more mellow than Air Itam's (RM7), to the firm, fairly fragrant nasi lemak (RM10 with tender pork curry & chicken). On Saturdays, household-recipe specials such as painstakingly prepared acar fish are available; Ho Li Chow is becoming a popular neighbourhood kopitiam, & its menu is expected to expand over time (siu yuk & duck rice?).
