Apple pie, chicken thigh, sausage, jalapeños
A place where grandmother’s apple pie is served next to Wayan’s chicken satay. Where both Ibrahim and Abraham eat their Dutch sausage – always with mustard. And where you douse Blanca’s jalapeños with Brand Weizen.

Opening up to new cultures starts with sharing a meal
