Piu Piu Piu at The Zhongshan Building, Kampung Attap: SnapshotSean Yoong
May 17, 2017
Steered by the mystery man known only as Unagi, inspired by the standing bars of Tokyo, Piu Piu Piu is a casual, intimate space where customers can crowd around the counter, chat with each other and perhaps find a new friend or two.
Tucked inside The Zhongshan Building arts centre, a recently restored block of 1950s-constructed shophouses, Piu Piu Piu (the playful name reflects Unagi’s love for water pistols) isn’t shooting blanks with its compact, purposefully curated selection – the ultra-refreshing Lemon Sour Plus blends lemons preserved for five days with Piu Piu Piu’s own-made soda and a splash of shochu (a non-alcoholic version is also available), while coffee is brewed with a house blend furnished by local roasters Aim Coffee with Unagi’s choice of beans. Lagers and pale ales promise an extra incentive for day drinkers (Piu Piu Piu currently closes by 7pm).
Food offerings centre on desserts that convey an independent streak; home baker Queeny prepares fresh banana cake, cheesecakes and gula Melaka apple crumble tarts with a wholesome perspective in picking ingredients (begone, white sugar).
