If you missed the Miffy Cafe or the Cinnamonroll Cafe don’t fret because this time Kumoya is bringing Care Bears to Singapore. From 1st February till the end of March 2018, Kumoya will be featuring over 12 Care Bear themed dishes, along with an assortment of drinks. What’s more, prices range from $8.90 to $28.90!
For all you Care Bear fans out there this will be heaven for you, feast your eyes on unbearably cute decorations and an explosion of cheery colours right as you enter the store. Upon stepping into the store, you will hear the familiar tunes of the Care Bear soundtrack, songs that will take you right back to your childhood. What’s more on your seats are adorable large Care Bear plush toys waiting to have a meal with you.
All the dishes in their menus are named after a particular Care Bear and the first dish we tried was The Seafood Chowder you’ll Love-A-Lot ($28.90). A generous serving of Japanese beetroot rice served with fresh seafood chowder stew. Shirley Wong also known as @littlemissbento, the co-creator and food artist in charge of curating the Care Bear menu, mentioned this was one of her favourite dishes due to the intricacy of shaping and imprinting the Care Bear features onto the pink hued rice. As a bonus, with each Seafood Chowder purchased you’ll get to take home your own Love-A-Lot plush worth $14.90!
The next dish we tried was the Kumoya Star Attraction ($18.90), a Pomodoro pasta surrounded by perfectly cooked beef meatballs, mixed together with shiitake mushrooms, cherry tomato confit and parmesan cheese stars. Complete with its own little Care Bear decor hanging on a rainbow, it is a dish sure to put a smile on your face. The cafe also offers an alternative to the beef meatballs for those who want a vegetarian option.
And what’s a main course without its side dishes? We ordered the Truffle fries ($11.90) and the Chicken And Corn Sticks With Nacho Cheese ($12.90). Their truffles fries are made with premium truffle oil and tossed with parmesan cheese. Their Chicken And Corn Sticks is a perfect combination of chicken nuggets and corn resulting surprising veggie crunch with every bite. It also comes with a yummy combo of Nacho Cheese. Each dish came served in a limited-edition Care Bear snack holder.
For desserts, we got a taste their Rainbow Garden Strawberry Parfait ($18.90), a light and refreshing strawberry Hokkaido soft serve that comes with a creamy vanilla pudding. And it wouldn’t be called a garden without its cookie crumble path, and an assortment of sweet treats like fresh fruit, candies and meringues.
And if you are feeling down, try Grumpy Bear’s comforting Feeling Blue Berries Cake Jar ($12.90), a layered mixed berry cake that is topped with a generous helping of soft serve ice cream, meringue drops and adorable Grumpy Bear butter cookie. This will have you feeling perked up in no time.
Besides Care Bear themed dishes, the cafe also offers cute over-the-top drinks as well. We got our hands on the Cute And Cuddly Calpis ($11.90), a refreshing healthy Japanese yoghurt drink served with whipped cream and sprinkles. For those who need a midday pick me up, you can opt for their Care-Bear-Cino ($10.90) made with premium UCC Japanese coffee beans, and topped with whip cream and coloured wafer sticks. And on a rainy sunday, the Warm-Your-Heart Hot Chocolate ($8.90) would be the perfect drink, this is Kumoya’s popular Belgium Hot Chocolate that is served with a Love-A-Lot Bear Marshmallow.
And Shout’s team favourite dish has got to be the Cheer-Up Chicken Katsu ($21.90), a juicy Japanese style Katsu Chicken burger marinated in teriyaki sauce, with its crispy exterior and tender inside. The teriyaki chicken sauce is what hooked us right from the first bite. Served with a delectable garden salad decorated with star cheese slices and a side of fries. Not forgetting featuring grumpy bear imprinted on the mushroom soup and the burger bun! This is a must try!
