Is there a more iconic sound to remind us of our childhood than “Ohhhhhh… Who lives in a pineapple under the sea“? Many of us grew up on the hare-brained antics of the cartoon sponge and the nostalgia is strong. From 16 Dec 2021, you don’t have to travel to a pineapple under the sea to hang out with Spongebob anymore because he’ll be getting his own pop-up cafe at Kumoya!
Taking over from another childhood mascot, Crayon Shinchan, Kumoya Jalan Klapa will be transformed into a Bikini-Bottom-inspired cafe featuring a variety of dishes with a Spongebob Squarepants theme!
As with all their previous concepts, the new menu will be designed by @littlemissbento, a bento artist famous for her adorable takes on food. Plus, this will be a menu done in collaboration with Impossible Meats, making this Kumoya’s first-ever meat-free themed cafe.
The menu is split into snacks, mains, desserts, and drinks with the snacks served in cute square boxes taking on the shape of Spongebob — very fitting for a Spongebob cafe. Some of the cool alternative meat bites include their realistic Impossible Nuggets (S$13.90) that come with a tangy tomato dip and also Impossible Mini Corn Dogs (S$13.90) for those who can’t get enough of the trendy snack.
There are 4 mains on the menu, starting from the eye-catching “No Problemo” The Impossible Burger (S$25.90) that features a juicy slab of their signature Impossible Meat patty embraced by a fluffy square-shaped bun that looks just like Spongebob.
Other hearty Spongebob-shaped cafe fare on the menu include “I’m Ready!” Life Is Sweet Impossible Big Breakfast (S$26.90), “I Wumbo, You Wumbo, He She We Wumbo” Impossible Meatball Pomodoro Pasta (S$23.90), and “Aye-aye Captain” Impossible Japanese Croquette Curry Rice (S$24.90).
With Curry rice being a staple dish across multiple Kumoya themed cafe, it might be worth digging into their Spongebob-shaped spin on this classic dish. The square block of rice is coloured yellow with tumeric and served with plant-based katsu and pineapple curry.
It’s not really a cafe experience withotu some dessert and the “Order Up!” Get Toasty Dessert Set (S$21.90) ensemble of Hokkaido milk soft serve, Shibuya toast, and marshmallows is the perfect sweet ending to the meal. It even comes with a grill so you can grill your own marshmallows for maximum fun.
Other than that, the cafe also serves up some Spongebob inspired thirst quenchers such as the Pineapple-Under-The-Sea Pineapple Iced Tea (S$12.90) which snags you a personal pineapple cup to add to your mug collection at home.
