Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Opens at Changi Airport Terminal 3
Hello Kitty Orchid Garden opens its doors at Changi Airport Terminal 3 today. It is not only Singapore’s first themed café starring the iconic feline, but also the world’s first 24-hour Hello Kitty café offering locals and tourists round-the-clock respite with a bevy of delectable food and beverages served in a whimsical floral paradise setting.
As every Hello Kitty café features a different theme, Hello Kitty Orchid Garden is specially designed to emulate the country’s ‘garden city’ vibe, fusing inspiration from the national flower – the orchid – with the beloved character’s signature kawaii flair for a uniquely Singaporean aesthetic.
Local and Asian influences are woven into the menu, which features all-day breakfast delights, hearty mains and sharing dishes, and an irresistible array of Kitty-fied desserts; including soft serve, gelato sundaes, pastries and tea cakes. The dishes are served on beautiful wooden boards, ceramic and glass ware – specially selected to complement the garden theme, each customised with the café logo.
Start with enticing finger food, such as the Hola Nachos! ($15.90); flaky fried tortilla chips jazzed up with shaved parmesan, jalapenos, olives, onions, tomato salsa, and lashings of a luscious cheddar cheese sauce. Ops Kitty Did It Again ($10.50) features crisoy fries topped with some Himalayan pink salt and parmesan cheese.. Truffle ketchup serves as a good complement.
Let’s Do The Salsa ($16.50) will have customers getting footloose with a hefty stack of shredded chicken, cheese and veggies dressed with zingy taco-flavoured mayonnaise and sandwiched between Kitty-shaped focaccia toast, while the Cowabunga! Wagyu! ($24) is Hello Kitty’s own rendition of the Singaporean favourite, beef rendang. Here, generous cuts of wagyu are slow-cooked until fork-tender and imbued with the rich flavour of a special pineapple rempah (Nyonya spice mix), then served alongside pearly Japanese rice packed in the likeness of Hello Kitty, and Mesclun salad drizzled with ponzu sauce.
Late risers need not worry because Hello Kitty offers all-day brunch. Hunger pangs will soon be quelled with the scrumptious Big Breakfast Surprise ($18.50) comprising creamy scrambled eggs, smoked duck slices, sautéed shiitake mushrooms and crispy Kitty waffles embedded with melted cheddar.
Go for their beguiling plated desserts such as Cat In Paradise ($18.50) – a spin on the Chinese-style mango pudding or Rose, Rose I Love You ($17.50) – a moist, buttery orange sugee cake topped with crunchy chocolate “soil” and sculpted petals of velvety strawberry buttercream, with decadent peanut buttercup gelato on the side. More sweet options include a daily selection of sliced cakes and tarts, soft serve frozen yoghurt, and eight flavours of gelato; including pistachio and strawberry, available in single or double scoop servings.
Get hydrated and energised with any of the five Kitty Coolers ($7.90 each), which include Kitty Blush; a rosy concoction of watermelon juice, basil and soda water, and Cumbernade; a fizzy mocktail of cucumber syrup, lemonade and soda water.
There are 3D life-sized figurines of Hello Kitty for photo spots, and you will surely be tempted to take home a memento from the retail corner, where Singapore-exclusive merchandise will be launched seasonally. They can anticipate a range of custom Hello Kitty-inspired tea blends, plush toys fashioned to resemble the Hello Kitty Singapore mascot, grow-it- yourself plant kits, and postcards.
