Singaporeans are gullible consumers. There, I said it.
We’ll patronise anything at least once if it even has a tiny picture or print of a cartoon or character we like.
Which is also why, Kumoya returns once again with another character-themed cafe concept.
In the past, we’ve seen Miffy, Care Bears and Tokidoki-themed character cafes hosted by Kumoya. This time, it’s Mr. Men and Little Miss.
Mr. Men And Little Miss Visit Singapore
Okay, to be fair, I do like the Mr. Men and Little Miss. I grew up reading the tiny square books about them. And Mr. Happy is basically a smiling emoji with hands and legs, in my favourite colour, yellow.
While Kumoya has done plenty of character cafes in the past, this one is going to be a little different. The menu is created in collaboration with Little Miss Bento (Shirley Wong) and it will be locally-inspired despite Kumoya primarily being a Japanese-French restaurant.
Here are some of the locally-inspired dishes that will be available at the Kumoya x Mr. Men and Little Miss cafe.
Fried Mantou With House-made Chilli Crab Dip ($11.90)
Mr Bump Knock-Out Nasi Lemak ($23.90)
Butterfly pea flower coconut rice served with tempura sambal prawns, crispy golden fried chicken, potato croquette, ramen egg, keropok, walnuts and anchovies.
Mr Bump Pow-Wow Pandan Sponge Cake ($17.90)
A Pandan sponge cake that looks like Mr Bump, with Gula Melaka frosting, freshly churned Hokkaido soft serve, Nata de coco, kidney beans, sweet corn, cotton candy, and a shot of Gula Melaka on the side for that extra kick.
Milo Oreo Frappe ($14.90)
Chendol Gula Melaka Frappe ($14.90)
This local AF creation is basically a Chendol garnished with pandan leaves and whipped cream.
That’s not all, all beverages are served with a limited edition coaster (6 different designs to collect) and all frappe orders come with a limited edition badge (3 different designs)!
Like the previous character cafes, dining time is limited to 90 minutes and there is a minimum spending of $10 per person.
The Mr. Men and Little Miss character cafe will run from 5 July 2018 to September 2018.
Will you be heading to the Mr. Men And Little Miss character cafe at Kumoya this July?
