Cue that cute egg yolk – everything at this cafe will cause cuteness-induced swooning

Meet Gudetama, one of Japan’s most popular Sanrio character is making its way to Singapore. It is a lazy egg with cute anthropomorphic expressions that makes people laugh. Debuting in its cafe on Wednesday (30 November 2016) at Suntec City, Gudetama is ready to welcome its egg-cited fans and curious diners who wants to munch on egg-y dishes.

Gudetama makes an appearance on everything – from drinks to main dishes, and desserts to shaped cakes in an egg shell – including the cafe’s interior design as well as the staff’s uniforms echoes Gudetama’s cuteness. The dining area is full of glorious yellow – matching the walls, chairs and special booths that shaped like an egg.

Next to the cafe, is a separate garden-theme dining space which focus on drinks and desserts. Optimising the capacious 2,300 sq ft space, the Gudetama cafe seats about 112 guests in full capacity.

Don’t mistaken me when I said the food here may not be fantastic and can be a little pricey for some dishes – looking cute and tasting good at the same time are definitely the main focus here.

At every character cafes and theme restaurants, the food usually takes a backseat to the presentation of the theme. These F&B concepts attract customers solely on the premise of the theme itself, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food offered here.

Try to check out Gudetama Cafe to find out – you will understand what I meant. Needless to say, it is far better than most of the theme cafes in Singapore.
