Around a year since it opened in Suntec City shopping centre, the queues have finally disappeared at the Gudetama Cafe and reservations can also be made via Chope or HungryGoWhere to ensure that you get a table. I went there last Saturday for a lunch reservation at 12.30pm surprised to see that the restaurant was only half full and remained like that for the whole time that I was there. The restaurant is very cute, adorned with Gudetama everywhere – the world’s favourite lazy egg character from Sanrio.
There’s plenty of seating available from cozy booths to large tables for big groups. The menu is mostly western food including all day breakfasts, meat and seafood dishes, pizza, burgers and tasty looking side dishes all staring Gudetama in the form of food art. They also have some very cute looking desserts such as Shoyu Ramen which is actually made out of chocolate cake, chestnut Mont Blanc and earl grey jelly and looks like a delicious bowl of Japanese ramen noodles or you could try the Ta-Ma-Go which looks like a plate of tamago sushi but is actually cheesecake served with matcha “wasabi”. Drinks ordered come in cute Gudetama mugs and glasses and lattes are dusted in cocoa powder in the shape of Gudetama. There’s also a kids menu available for children under the age of 12.
The food is actually not half bad for a character cafe, definitely better than the Pompompurin Cafe, another Sanrio character cafe in Orchard Central. I had the “I’m Cold” Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict ($26.90) where the poached egg Gudetamas appear to be wrapped up snug and toasty in smoked salmon blankets on top of toast and covered with mashed avocado, plenty of hollandaise sauce and sprinkled with ebiko (prawn eggs). The eggs benedict was quite nice, the eggs were perfectly poached but the hollandaise could have been more zesty and I would have preferred English muffins over the slightly dry piece of toast. It came with tater tots and vegetables on the side which amounted to a very filling lunch.
The latte ($6) I had was nice and strong and came in a Gudetama mug and was dusted with an odd looking Gudetama on top.
The friends that I went with had the Rib- “I” Don’t Care ($28.50) which is a chargrilled New Zealand grass-fed Angus ribeye steak with wild mushroom sauce, grilled vegetables and mashed potato, the Gudetama Lobster Onsen ($16) which is a lobster bisque in a crusty bread bowl with an egg and “Are You Busy?” Burger ($27.50) which is a double beef burger with bacon and egg and comes with fries.
Everyone enjoyed their meal there; it’s a fun place to go for both adults and children whether you’re a fan of Gudetama or not. Service is pleasant and efficient too.
For those of you that want to bring home a souvenir, there is a small shop at the front of the restaurant that sells Gudetama Cafe Singapore merchandise as well as Gudetama cakes.
