Dakota Crescent: Tian Kee & Co. and Dove Playground

Dakota Crescent is slated for development by the end of 2016 so we decided to pay a visit before it’s gone for good. We haven’t been there in more than 4 years but the sleepy housing estate still feels largely the same. The Tian Kee & Co. provision shop is now a little cafe and we had breakfast there before heading over to the Dove playground. I still think it looks more like a Seal than a Dove though!

The food at Tian Kee & Co. was pretty decent and these days I’m delighted if a cafe serves proper hot meals and not just sandwiches, cakes and pastries. There are so many hipster cafes now that only assemble food but don’t actually cook anything. The kids loved the rainbow cheesecake and inhaled it in a matter of minutes.

The Dove playground is actually in better condition than it was in when we visited some years ago. At that time, it was pretty grubby and Adrian didn’t even let Anya touch it. Either that or we have lowered our standards now that we have 3 kids! Haha.
