I don’t understand the hype about this place because these were heavily overpriced... I Guess they weren’t bad but their price was just a no go imo...

Bought a cup of hot latte ($8) (with oatmilk +$1) and this is honestly a very expensive cup of 12 oz coffee. I tend to get migraine drinking caffeinated stuff but this was smooth, didn’t give me a migraine and it’s a taste I could accept without any sugar (I like to add a pack of sugar in my coffee). Have to say it’s pretty good compared to most coffee places but it’s slightly acidic towards the end of each sip. Worth trying but maybe not my to-go coffee place.

I may not drink coffee but coffee-infused desserts are always a good idea. Hence, % Arabica's % Blend Soft Cream ($5) was right up my alley. Packed with quite an intense flavour, the soft cream was not too sweet and delivered a slight yet pleasant caffeine buzz. Though the swirls did melt a tad too quickly and the portion size is on the smaller side with the price point, the creamy concoction was really aromatic and had a lingering roasted flavour that I am sure coffee-lovers will enjoy.


The drinks here are really quite expensive. $9.60 for a 12oz matcha latte. OMG... Almost fainted. That good? Die die i must try. Turns out pretty so so though taste is subjective. But I would say the matcha latte @starbucks is preferred.

Thought it would be good to make it a point to try Arabica’s food menu exclusive to their outlet at Chip Bee Gardens which was launched fairly recently; after all, this is the only Arabica outlet in the world to serve up a hot food menu — pretty much a highlight for those who are looking to experience their many outlets across the world, not to mention that the menu is developed by a head chef of a now-defunct Michelin-star restaurant in Taichung.

At S$32, the Beef Katsu Sando is the most exorbitant item on the menu — consisting of elements such as Deep Fried Japanese Wagyu Tenderloin, Homemade Katsu Sauce, and lettuce, this was an item that is pretty stellar in its own right. The toast comes soft and fluffy — pretty light and pan-fried slightly for a bit of sweetness; not too heavy on carbs but otherwise the star here is undeniably the Beef Katsu. One could easily tell the high quality of the Wagyu Beef being used for the dish here — not only was it melt-in-the-mouth tender, the sizeable chunks of beef carried a good meaty bite with every chew; no tough, fatty bits or veiny parts that refuse to fall apart — very delightful on its own that it does not really quite matter that the deep-fried batter was a little soggy from the Homemade Tonkatsu Sauce which carried a nice vinegary sweetness that cuts through the heaviness of the fried meat.

Must say that the item is pretty respectable in terms of quality and execution — it’s a pretty great Beef Katsu Sando to go for. That being said, its hefty price tag makes it feel more of a one-time off for me; sure, the beef is pretty high quality and all, but spending $32 on a single item in Arabica’s environment kinda feels a little excessive to me given the type of establishment it is. Still, something which I say it’s worth a try if one’s willing to splurge a little in their cafe escapades!
