Pompompurin Cafe

Fans of Hello Kitty, cartoon bento boxes and everything twee—Pompompurin, the portly Sanrio golden retriever, has launched its first cafe in Southeast Asia at Orchard Central.

This 1,900 sq ft garden-themed bistro is, of course, the definition of kawaii. Interiors, food and drinks feature the benign portrait of the yellow, beady-eyed canine and diners can splash more cash on Pompompurin merchandise at the cafe’s retail space. And if you’re really here for the food, the menu offers mainly hearty Western classics, like beef stroganoff ($18.99), mushroom and bacon carbonara ($26.99) and banana caramel pancakes ($16.99).
