Starting 17 May til 13 August 2017, fans of Cinnamoroll get to visit Kumoya (Singapore’s first Halal-Certified Japanese-French café) to check out the Cinnamoroll-theme pop-up café to mark Cinnamoroll’s 15th anniversary. Cinnamonroll (シナモロール ) is a character series created by Sanrio in 2001, with character designs from Miyuki Okumira. The main character, Cinnamon is a white puppy with long ears, blue eyes, pink cheeks and a plump and curly tail that resembles a cinnamon roll.
The menu is specially curated by Shirley Wong ( @littlemissbento).
Before moving on to the dishes we tried, here are the glimpses of the interior café with cinnamonroll theme.
Happy Happy Heart Chicken Karaage with Waffles S$19.90
Buttery waffles paired with juicy karaage chicken with house-made sweet shoyu glaze, mixed salads with cherry tomato, fluffy potato hearts and a cinnamoroll mantou. The cinnamoroll mantou shaped so cute!

Something comforting and filling? This is the dish to order! The cinnamoroll fluffy Japanese rice with Japanese curry, tempura salmon and mixed salad with cherry tomato.
Flying Clouds Cinnamoroll Burger S$17.90
Crispy chicken katsu sandwiched between vegetables and fresh tomato on a cute Connamoroll mantou burger bun and served with potato chips with nacho cheese and chicken ham, fish cakes and mixed salad.

Sweet Fluffy Dreams Rose Tea S$13.90
Sweet dreams are made of these! Special cold butterfly pea-flower rose tea served with a giant cotton candy cloud. My favourite drink out of the 3 drinks that we ordered.
Floaty Cloud Iced Café Latte S$9.90

There are hits and misses on the dishes here but as a whole, it is quite decent for a theme-character café. As we all know that theme-character café foods are generally has beautiful and cute visual presentation but not the food. But here in Kumoya, the foods are not bad and you can have photo taking with the interior of the café too. Win-win situation!
