Media Tasting at Kumoya x Sesame Street
Kumoya is known to successfully transform itself into various themed pop-up cafe and has already collaborated with some of the world’s most iconic brand such as Cinnamoroll, Miffy, Care Bears, tokidoki, Mr Men Little Miss, My Little Pony, Pusheen and Snoopy.
For this last quarter of the year, Kumoya will be joining in the fun with Sesame Street to celebrate its 50th anniversary! Get ready to experience childhood once again as you step into the brightly lit cafe, decorated with vibrant colours of Sesame Street characters such as Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch! It was definitely a bonus to have L sized character plushies seated beside you as you dine!
Let’s check out the menu of kawaii food designs curated by Shirley Wong with over 5 years of experience in this field of arts.
From their drinks selection, the most popular choice seems to be the Cookie Monster Cookies’ Shot with Match Milk. This cute little set comes with the edible cookie cup which your could drink your match milk from. Not forgetting the cute 5 inch cookie monster keychain plush which you could take home!
If you are a fan of matcha like me, another option would be Oscar’s the Grouch Matcha Caramel Frappe. Milky with thick creamy frappe and signature fondant eyebrows!
For the mains, I had one which shouts ‘KAWAII’ the most! It was the ABCD and E for
Elmo Japanese seafood curry rice. What a lengthy name… The Elmo face is made up of fluffy tomato infused rice, served with Japanese curry and accompanied by breaded ebi, breaded calamari and tempura salmon.
Another catchy looking dish would be the ‘Oscar’s teriyaki chicken katsu burger is the one!’ with its chicken katsu dipped in teriyaki sauce and green matcha mantou, fresh garden salad within the bin itself. Not forgetting everyone’s favourite crispy curly fries!
With a series of fried appetisers from its menu, I had the Karaage Chicken with Shoyu Glaze served in a pretty customised characters box. Each piece was rather moist and pairs well with the sweet savoury shoyu dip.
Last but not least, I have been waiting for the desserts as the colours were all so vibrant, picking up the mood for diners.
A for Abby Cadabby’s Magical Rainbow Pancakes arrived with stacks of colourful buttermilk pancakes served with fresh-churned Hokkaido soft serve. Beautifully garnished with edible sprinkles, colourful meringue kisses, handmade cookie, fresh cream with strawberries and fluffy cotton candy! The magical sparkler that lit up by the staff was irresistibly cute as well!!
Being a Matcha fan as usual, the Oscar is very grouchy matcha caramel parfait was inevitably my choice as well. The parfait was served with double-swirl Hokkaido matcha soft serve, matcha soufflé cake, azuki, Japanese dango, matcha crumble, fresh cream with strawberries and a handmade cute Oscar the Grouch butter cookie.
If you would like caffeine, go ahead to grab their Cookie Monster’s OM NOM NOM iced latte brewed with mild Japanese coffee bean and definitely not too sweet.
It was a delightful experience as other customers including myself took plenty of photos with the food and the cute plushies! Who could resist not snapping photos of such KAWAII-ness???
