The Alleycat & his birthday

It is Jamie's 4th birthday today. Yesterday we had a little celebration for him.

After church, we went to The Alleycat Cafe in Jalan Song Thian Cheok for a birthday lunch.

The Alleycat Cafe is in this building. It is just a stone throw away from one of my favourite kueh chap place in Kuching.

Hmm. Why the name alleycat?  Reminded me of the Malaysian singing band back in the 70s. However I don't think that was the reason; maybe the building was right at the end of this small road and Kuching has always been associated with cats, hence the name "alleycat". Well, this was just my guess. No one know.

I love the setting of the cafe though it was not a big place. A cafe cum bistro. The place was tastefully decorated with many interesting props and stuff. Some were vintage and some were fun to be seen.

Whilst we were waiting for our food, we entertained ourselves with the clown wig that placed on our table. Everyone was enjoying themselves with the wig by taking photos. Of course I were the photographer (as usual).

At first the birthday boy was reluctant to put on the wig but after seeing his older siblings put it on, he did so and posed for me.

One could upload photos to their instagram account but yours truly does not have one. 

The food finally came! First was the spaghetti bolognese. It was good. The sauce was nice and generous.

Next was the American Fish N Chips. They have few choices of fish n chip, namely Italian, Johnny English, Sawadee, Mexican and so forth but we decided to play safe and go with the American version.

And everyone enjoyed the crispy batter yet moist fish fillets with parmesan cheese. I like the tartar sauce that come with it.

Finally was the BBQ chicken pizza 11". Something different from our usual flavours of pizza. It was thin crust and the pizza was fine to me.  Not bad with generous toppings (smoked bbq sauce, chicken, onion, mushroom and pepper) but it was nothing to shout about.

Overall, we enjoyed our lunch there. The staff was friendly and the food was big in portion.

I like the song lyric on the receipt. Very creative.

In the evening, we had a simple cake cutting for the birthday boy. He chose his cake theme. Spiderman! I never knew he likes spiderman.

Happy birthday my spidey boy!

Happy birthday to the adorable Spiderman! Before reading your post, I was wondering why your son was referred to as Alleycat. I think your explanation of why the restaurant is named Alleycat sounds really plausible.

What a cute photo in the wig - his expression seems to read "okay mum, just for you."
