If you have used sticker emojis before, chances are you would have encountered the cute sticker pack that has the Pusheen cat on it.

Now, everyone’s favourite plump cat on the Internet that loves to eat too much is making its way to Singapore for its world café debut.

The Pusheen cat will grace the Kumoya café in pop-up style this January when the Japanese-French café will launch the Pusheen pop-up café from January 6 next year till the month of March, according to a press release Sunday (Dec 16).

The Pusheen pop-up café is the world’s first café specially dedicated to the Pusheen character, which was created in 2010 by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff for their Tumblr website Everyday Cute.

The café behind it, Kumoya, has been churning out pop-up concept after concept, featuring characters such as My Little Pony, Tokidoki and Cinnamoroll dolled up for their pop-up café.

Expect the café’s interior to be decked out in Pusheen designs made exclusively for the Singapore café by Claire and her design team.

The food too is expected to have Pusheen designs as the cat takes up prime space on various dishes as designed by food artist Shirley Wong who runs the Instagram account @littlemissbento.

Snacks start from S$10.90 for special green tea buns with edible Pusheen prints, and mains start from S$19.90 for a truffle agile olio with a Pusheen sticker slurping up one of the noodles.

If you would like Pusheen to nap under an egg omelette blanket, the Pusheen Cat Nap Creamy Japanese Rice (S$22.90) features our dear pudgy cat shaped out of Japanese charcoal rice swimming in beetroot cream sauce.

If that is not enough kawaii for you, try indulging in your sadistic streak and pour steamed milk over a cute Pusheen chocolate ball as it melts to reveal a pile of treats, including meringue kisses and lychee Hokkaido soft serve.

For all the Muslims out there, it should be noted that Kumoya was Halal-certified but has since decided not to renew its Halal certificate this year. However, the restaurant does not serve pork, lard or alcohol.

In anticipation of the possible crowds of people that may end up combusting in excitement for far too long over these Pusheen creations, there will be a 90-minute limit per patron and a S$10 minimum spend.

So, don’t be cheapskate, ok?

Kumoya is located at 8 Japan Klapa.

Opening Hours:
12.00pm – 9.30pm (Tue – Thu, Sun)
12.00pm – 10.30pm (Fri, Sat)
