Welcome, let me visually guide you through my lunch experience at an interesting little restaurant known as Cara & Co :)
At the shop front, waiting.
Discovered the restaurant cosily tucked away at the back of the store
To the left of my seat
To the right of my seat
The Al la Cart menu. We decided to order the $49 lunch special
‘Growing’ our napkins! So cool to watch them expand as they’re soaked with water! When I was seating myself, I actually thought they were mints. Good thing I didn’t pop one into my mouth.
Bread and butter
Red wine, Rose, & White wine

First things first, doesn’t food look absolutely amazing from the colour to the plating arrangement to the decorations? This is such a pretty little restaurant and I’m still really astounded that it was
hidden away located inside the boutique store of the same name.
This particular set of photos shows the the lunch special set which came with one entree and one main, which we couldn’t choose since it was the chefs’ selection, as well as a glass of wine of our choice. Just a little point, as pretty as it looks, the main was underwhelming – I personally found it a bit dry but then again I’m not a big fan of lamb. Don’t get me wrong, the overall experience was good but seeing as the main should have been the star of the meal, I was a bit disappointed. “Fear not!” I told myself, as I shall be visiting again soon for dinner to give it another chance. I am super keen to try ‘A most desireable Ugly Duckling’.
