Kyoto is the Japanese prefecture with the largest consumption of bread in the country, so it’s certainly fitting that this cafe focuses on sandwiches, offering a wide range of Japanese sandos, french toasts, and more. Besides that, the prefecture is also known for its Uji matcha and red bean snacks, so you’ll definitely want to try those while you’re here.

For a dish that embodies all things Kyoto, try the Matcha Pudding Kyoto Hot Sandwich (S$16.20), a red bean sandwich served with a side of matcha pudding. Filled with velvety red bean and fragrant butter, the sandwich is toasted to give it a light crisp. Meanwhile, the matcha pudding is soft and smooth, with just the right amount of bitterness.

Another unique item that comes highly recommended is the Seafood Cheese Toast (S$13.80), a thick slab of toasted bread topped with prawns, squid, clams, and scallops, and then covered in oozy melted cheese.

The cafe also offers a wide range of other sandwiches, such as the Stewed Beef (S$22.20), Wagyu Menchi Katsu (S$19.80), and Takenoko (S$10.80)

But if sandwiches are not your thing, you’ll also find matcha, coffee, desserts, and snacks from Kyoto, as well as a selection of pastas — including interesting ones such as the Snow Crab Cream (S$28.80).

And it’s not just the menu here that’s inspired by Kyoto. Enter the cafe, and you’ll find yourself walking through the instantly recognisable Japanese Torii gates up to the second floor. Upstairs, you’ll find four dining booths, each named after one of the four seasons, and decorated accordingly. 

So the next time you find yourself missing Japan or craving some Japanese snacks, head to MoMiJi Cafe to immerse yourself in all things Kyoto.
