A Care Bear-Themed Cafe Is Springing Up In S'pore And It Will Awaken Your Inner Child

Singapore has seen so many character cafes pop up in the recent years, it’s almost as if it’s an elaborate scheme to get us to keep throwing money in pursuit of that perfect Instagram shot.

Of course, we all know this. But that doesn’t stop us from visiting these character cafes when they pop up in succession.

Once again, Kumoya has partnered with Little Miss Bento and American Greeting to bring us Care Bears x Kumoya, a Care Bears-themed cafe.

From 1 February to 31 March 2018, Kumoya will be transformed into Care-a-lot, the home of the Care Bears.

The cafe will be completely redecorated with the Care Bears. While it doesn’t exactly resemble Care-a-lot, this will do.

As with all past iterations of character cafes, what everyone is looking forward to is the themed food, and the Care Bears don’t intend to lose out to the Sanrio characters.

Food Prepared With Care

First up, we have The Seafood Chowder you’ll Love-a-lot ($28.90).

The Seafood Chowder You’ll Love-a-lot ($28.90)

This seafood-loaded chunky stew comes with a generous amount of shrimp and squid, as well as chunks of carrot and broccoli, served with a bed of beetroot-stained rice shaped like Love-a-lot bear.

For the pasta lovers, there’s the Kumoya’s Star Attraction ($18.90) which is a classic Pomodoro spaghetti with shitake mushrooms, cherry tomato confit, and parmesan cheese.

If you’re looking for something more substantial, there’s the Cheer-Up Chicken Katsu ($21.90).

Were you expecting a chicken cutlet? Because we were. But it’s actually a burger!

A juicy Japanese katsu chicken slathered generously with teriyaki sauce is sandwiched between soft burger buns, topped with a sunny-side up and cheddar cheese, served with a garden salad, crisp fries and mushroom soup.

While the mains look adorable and Instagram-worthy, the sides don’t disappoint either.

Served in a limited-edition snack holder, choose from the Truffle Fries ($11.90), Salted Egg Yolk Fries ($11.90), Chicken And Corn Sticks With Nacho Cheese ($12.90) and Karaage Chicken With Shoyu Glaze ($12.90).

Salted egg lovers will love the Salted Egg Yolk Fries, which comes sprinkled with salted egg cereal crunch and salted egg mayo dip. There’s no such thing as too much salted egg.

Kumoya’s signature crispy karaage chicken also gets a makeover, with a homemade sweet shoyu glaze.

Every past character cafe has had their own version of Kumoya’s desserts and drinks and this is no exception.

Go for the Rainbow Garden Strawberry Parfait ($18.90) – Strawberry Hokkaido soft serve is served with vanilla pudding, meringue drops, fresh fruits, chocolate sable, a rainbow candy strip and mixed berries sauce.

Not a fan of vanilla pudding? How about waffles? The Spread-The-Cheer Waffles ($19.90) combines Kumoya’s signature waffles with the strawberry Hokkaido soft serve, mixed berries sauce, meringue drops, wafer sticks, and Care Bear cookies.

That’s not all. End off your meal with their Calpis drinks or special Care Bears teas.

The Cute Cuddly Calpis ($11.90) combines Berry flavoured Calpis with a mountain of fresh cream, while the Magic Mango Strawberry ($11.90) uses Mango Strawberry Calpis with a mountain of fresh cream.

If you grew up with Care Bears like us, this is one character pop-up cafe that you shouldn’t miss!

Available from 1 February 2018 till 31 March 2018, don’t miss out on a chance to dine in Care-a-lot!
