What we tried at the Minion café
We were invited to the pop-up café for a media tasting and we have the opportunity to try some of the items on the menu.
Our favourite was the Minion Wagyu Lunch Plate. The black pepper glazed Wagyu strip loin patty was prefect - juicy and tasty. The kid also loved sides that came along - the fried ebi, mini chicken sausage and creamy potato puree. It is highly recommended by the kid because we only had a small piece of the patty and a couple spoons of potato puree!
The Minion Keema Chicken Curry consist of minced chicken and vegetable curry with a Minion-shaped serving of rice. The curry is mild and suitable for kids, in fact, our kid was scooping the last bit of curry off the plate! However, the rice (in both the chicken curry and lunch plate) was flavoured with spice and not well-received by the kid.
The Minion Pumpkin Mantou with Chilli Crab Dip packs a punch and we liked it but probably not suitable for kids or parents who don't take spicy. On the other hand, the Minion Banana Boat will be well-received by kids but not for parents who do not have a sweet tooth!
The café is decked with cute and colourful Minion posters and wallpaper lining the walls and even the bar counter!
There's even a photo corner for families to capture photos with a life-sized Minion (Bob) figurine too!
Exclusive Minion Merchandise
The pop-up café also offers exclusive Minion café merchandise from Japan that are not currently available in Singapore! This includes the "anime" eyes Minions available in large ($40) and keychain ($14)!
There are other interesting Minion merchandise available. You can find the merchandise store next to the café.
