We guess that Miffy had seen how much fun her Japanese friends (Hello Kitty, Gudetama, and Cinnamonroll) had on our sunny island via their IG stories. That’s why, she decided to hop her way here from Dutch, and set up a café dedicated to herself at Jalan Klapa.
The pop-up café (concept by Kumoya) will open its doors from 5th October to 31st December 2017, and here are some of the dishes that you can look forward to.
Wonderfully Waffles with Karaage Chicken (S$21.90)
Looking for the perfect sweet-savoury combination? If so then this dish is definitely your choice. The thick and buttery waffle comes with shoyu glazed crispy karaage chicken, and a colourful array of garden salad consisting of cute Miffy shaped carrots, cheese stars, and Miffy potato cakes. We are already feeling wonderful just by looking at its picture.
Egg-citing Miffy Smoked Duck Cold Pasta (S$17.90)
Don’t you agree that the Miffy egg is so irresistibly cute? Add some “egg-citement” to your protein diet with this tri-color dish that comes with cold pasta, juicy aburi smoked duck, lotus root chips and garden salad topped with sesame (goma) dressing.

Calories Saving Tips
Put Your Fork Down Between Bites

Grab hold of yourself! As much as we know much you want to devour the adorable dishes, slow down. Put your fork down between each bite. Take time to savour each bite, before taking another bite. If you slow down, when your body says, “Hey, I’m full,” you will actually be able to hear it.
Enhance Your Satiety
Wanting to eat more and feel satisfied without the extra calories? Then request for a bigger portion of salad (without sauces). The fibre from the vegetables, bulk up your food and increases your feeling of fullness. The best thing is, vegetables are of low energy density, meaning you get more food for fewer calories.
Recruit Your Squad
We know how much you want to gobble the mains down all by yourself. But hang on! Take a lead from the various carpooling services, share the heavy calorie fee portion of dishes with your squad.

Be prepared to spend at least $10 per person, and that you might be asked to leave after 90 minutes as the cafe expects a huge crowd.
