    Behind 50

    Scouring the heritage streets on Georgetown is an ecstasy; you'll easily bump into vintage spots like Behind 50. Along the scribbled walls and large murals, a yellow open-dining cafe steals the spotlight. Engulfed with rustic ornaments, photos, bicycles and gramophone sputtering in the background, it definitely oozes out old-school vibes. Dishing out Italian and Western fare, the portions are hearty and packed with flavours. However patrons are widely raving about their mushroom soup – creamy soup chock-full with mushroom bits, drizzled with fresh herbs and paired slabs of garlic bread. Sitting on the long stools, watching the world go by in a soothing ambience is a getaway from all hustle and bustle. To further enhance, wrap your meal with a cup of joe!
