Finally had a chance to visit the Rilakkuma pop-up cafe, which is recently opened in Singapore. If you have been following my blog, you will know that I am Rilakkuma fan, and I went to Rilakkuma Chaya in Taipei last year, and the first Rilakkuma cafe Taipei in 2017.
Rilakuma Cafe x Kumoya
Kumoya, the company which collaborates with SAN-X, Japan with their pop-up cafes such as Gudetama x Bad Badtz-Maru opened a new outlet at Orchard Central on Aug. 29, 2020.
The pop-up cafe at Orchard Central is named as “Rilakkuma – The Relax Cafe” will be the first semi-permanent San-X characters pop-up cafe in South East Asia. The year-long collaboration with various San-X characters will be subsequently making their appearance here in Singapore. Looking forward to other San-X characters which might include Sumikkogurashi, Jinbesan, Nyan Nyan Nyanko and Tarepanda. This Rilakkuma cafe will only be open for six months.

I enjoyed the Rest & Relax Rilakkuma Chicken Stew Rice and Relaxy Rilakkuma Chicken Cordon Bleu. The portion of the food was great, when the food was served I thought the Rilakkuma rice portion is very little. However, after eating I felt that it was just nice, not too much so that we can try other food too.
I am a little disappointed with the private room, as it is not laid with real tatami mat, we were seated on a cushion. The food was served fast and we were given ample time to enjoy our dinner.
