Over at the Luxemono headquarters, we strongly believe that hard work should be rewarded by good food – which is why we often find ourselves visiting food places that can satisfy our minds and stomachs. Today, we are eager to share two of our new-found food places – “flamingo café” Bicky & Brew and Hawaiian themed restaurant Aloha Poké!
Nicknamed the “Flamingo café” on the internet, Bicky and Brew is a small-scale takeaway café tucked right next to the Emerald Garden condominium along Club Street. Pay too much attention to your phone to follow google map’s directions and you might end up walking past it (we actually did). To save you some hassle, use the Emerald Garden as a map point – it is a green and yellow building and is pretty distinctive to spot among the rows of shop houses.
The café is a small and vibrant one – we were immediately greeted by its famous Flamingo wallpaper on our right, blue green painted walls for the rest, and a friendly “welcome!” upon entering. While most people visit here for quick caffeine takeout, there are 2 seats available for you to dine in if you have some time to spare. There are a few drink selections to choose from as well – flat white or iced latte for #teamcoffee and earl grey tea for #teamtea. A fan of neither? How about a cuppa hot chocolate to sweeten up your day?
Besides getting your caffeine fix, there are also freshly baked goodies for you to go along with. We got ourselves a muffin and cookie at $3 each and were impressed at how delicious and affordable they were. The baked goodies change often to keep the menu fresh and interesting, so don’t hesitate to get it if any catches your eye (and stomach)!

(looks at watch) It is now lunchtime!
Opting for a healthier menu? Hawaiian themed restaurant Aloha Poké may be one new dining spot you would like to check out. We went to the Amoy Street’s branch and highly suggest you avoid the lunch hours (unless you are here for a take-out). While we managed to get a seat because we turned up before its opening hours, the restaurant was completely filled with blue collar workers from the neighbouring offices by noon.
The best part of Aloha Poké is that you can customise your own Poké bowl to suit your taste preferences! Tick your favourite base, poke, complimentary add-ons and superfood on the order sheet and the friendly staff will prepare your bowl in a jiffy. There are also three bowl sizes to choose from to suit your appetite, so you don’t have to worry wasting food or feeling unsatisfied from not having enough.
Besides the Amoy Street branch we visited, Aloha Poké has two more branches with different opening hours. Do check beforehand to prevent disappointment – you wouldn’t want to be greeted with “closed” door sign would you?
