CINNAMOROLL-THEMED POP-UP CAFE AT KUMOYA
Themed cafes have been all the rage recently and the latest one to join the trend is Japanese-French restaurant Kumoya, which will be transformed into a Cinnamoroll- themed cafe from Wednesday until Aug 13.
Cinnamoroll, a Sanrio character , is a white dog with a tail that resembles a cinnamon roll and which can fly with its ears.
In addition to Cinnamoroll decorations, the pop-up cafe will offer a special set menu during this period. Items include the Fluffy Clouds Cinnamoroll Burger ($17.90, right), which comes with a chicken katsu cutlet sandwiched between mantou buns shaped like the character, and Fluffy Dreams Curry Rice ($21.90), which is served with tempura salmon.
Try the Cutie Cutie Special Cinnamoroll Blue Soda ($14.90), which is topped with cotton candy shaped like Cinnamoroll.
Where: Kumoya, 8 Jalan Klapa
Open: noon to 9.30pm (Tuesdays to Thursdays, Sundays), noon to 10.30pm (Fridays and Saturdays)
