Little House Cafe looks like a bakery or a coffee shop - and it is, actually, both of those things. But this tiny counter-service spot on Corona Ave is also a full-on restaurant serving a mix of Thai, Malaysian, and Chinese dishes. The thin, flaky, and especially delicate roti canai is a must-order, and if you want a substantial breakfast or lunch, we highly recommend their nasi lemak with lightly fragrant rice and a bright, spicy sambal. This place is open all day, and it’s ideal for a quick snack with a side of bubble tea or a casual bowl of noodles on a Tuesday night.
