House of AnLi Bistro is hidden behind House of AnLi, a shop retailing homeware at Tanglin Mall that serves cafe/bistro fare with a rather focused menu of eggy breakfast dishes and also some mains. The establishment seems to be very popular with Caucasian tai-tais, and seats are hard to get even for one even during weekday lunch hours

Didn't really have an intention to order this but was actually tempted by it when they were serving it to the other tables while I was waiting for my seat. The scrambled eggs come as a basic order of simply eggs on sourdough toast, with a small list of optional add-one which I opted for the Farmer's Bacon and the Mixed Mushroom. Everything is fresh on the plate; savoury slices of thin bacon that is nothing short of flavourful, while the mushrooms gave it a nice, juicy and earthy bite. Scrambled eggs were done just the way I like them; lightly-creamy in terms of flavour but still relatively eggy while done all runny. For those who might be worried that the sourdough toast may be a little stiff, the toast itself carries a little tension, while the juices of both the bacon and mushrooms helps to inject a little bit more flavour and moisture to the toast — those who prefer avocado would be delighted to know that avocado is part of the list of add-ons available for this dish as well.

House of AnLi Bistro is perhaps a cafe that hits spot-on with all the elements checked. It's an absolutely pretty space that has large ceiling-to-floor windows, big communal tables and spacious aisles that makes it feel very un-local in the local cafe scene. The larger proportion of Caucasian crowds here also helps to create that vibe. Service is good here as well; polite servers with the lady boss following up on orders and making small talk; it's bustling and a little loud but comfortable and homely. Definitely worth a visit to experience once if you can!
