Cheap and good zichar place with a safari theme? Sounds too good to be true? There is really such a place in Singapore in Woodlands road. It is really near to the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari so for families who are going to spend a day there or is wrapping up the adventure and looking for places to eat, you can consider heading to Cafe 566 to fill your stomach as it is spacious, has “animals” that can keep your children occupied and most of all, the food is cheap and served very quickly!

It took us a while to locate the place as it is located beside a workshop but google map does the job perfectly. Just keep your eyes on the lookout for 566 and some animals peeping out from the fences!
Pathway into the cafe – so interesting!
The gigantic elephant just reminds me of my childhood days! Doesn’t it look like the Charity Elephant? (*hums… I’m Charity Elephant, Charity Elephant, your friend… * OK.. it maybe only me 😛)
Zebra and Rhinoceros
Very cheery and colourful interior
Another dining area and this does really feel like you are dining in the wild 😛

Another view of the deep-fried sotong with salted egg.
I did not taste much of the salted egg but I like it that the dish was not greasy and the sotong was not rubbery.

Love this soup so much that I had actually forget to take a picture and had to ask my colleague for it! Only wish – more soup please! 😛
Very 80s tiles but modern chairs. LOL
Exploring the outdoor area and seeing dogs in cages.
If you have children roaming the grounds, please make sure that they are looked after and do not go near the fence as the dogs look fierce!
Plenty of tortoise near the entrance
Koi Pond near the entrance.
