How many of you have read those Mr. Men and Little Miss books growing up? They taught us so many simple lessons about life.
Well, these colourful illustrations by Roger Hargreaves will come alive in Singapore’s very own Mr. Men and Little Misses pop-up café.
This is when you can spot iconic characters such as Mr. Tickle, Mr, Happy, Mr. Bump, Little Miss Sunshine and Little Miss Princess in both the food and interior of the café.
The pop-up café will start 5 July 2018 to end September 2018 at Kumoya (walking distance from Bugis MRT), where you can chill and dine with the Mr Men and Little Miss characters.
Kumoya is Singapore’s first Halal-certified Japanese-French café.
It is no stranger to character cafes, also behind Miffy Café, Cinnamoroll Café to the most recent Tokidoki pop-up concepts.
The limited-time menu is also curated and styled by well-known food stylist Shirley Wong (Little Miss Bento – she should have her own Little Miss character LOL) and the Kumoya team.
Shirley is also behind the menu design of several Character Cafes in Singapore, including Gudetama Café and the most recent My Melody Café Singapore at Suntec City.
What I am happy to know is the menu takes a local twist this time round, also as a form of celebrating Singapore’s National Day.
The menu will feature locally-inspired Mr. Men and Little Miss mains, desserts and beverages – all customised for Singapore’s taste. You can expect Fried Mantou with house-made Chilli Crab Dip, Mr Strong Chilli Crab Pasta, Mr Bump Knock-out Nasi Lemak, and Strawberry Bandung Frappe.
Here are some of the recommended items at Mr. Men and Little Miss Café:
