There has been some talk on social media lately around Momiji Cafe; occupying a corner shop unit in KAP Mall where now-defunct Nakama Bistro used to be. A concept that is brought by Chef Teppei Yamashita who has also blessed us Singaporeans with establishments such as Teppei Syokudo, Man Man Unagi Restaurant and Tokyo Chopped Salad, Momiji Cafe attempts to bring Japan to our shores with its emphasis on the four seasons being a theme to the “private rooms” — one for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter respectively, and gates replicating that of the Tori Shrine in Kyoto, Japan in the stairway leading up to the second level of the cafe.

They had unfortunately ran out of the Tonkatsu Baked Sandwich during our visit, so we found ourselves going for the next alternative — the Chicken Katsu Baked Sandwich; one of the more conventional sandwiches available here, there are also other variants like the White Fish, Takenoko (Kyoto Bamboo Shoot) and Kani (Crab Salad) Baked Sandwiches to choose from.

The Chicken Katsu Baked Sandwich is fairly decent here — the bread did seem to be spread with butter over the top for a slightly savoury note; somewhat crisp and crusty and goes rather well with the condiments in between. Despite the inclusion of tomato here, the baked sandwich still comes relatively neat without the individual components sliding in and out of the sandwich, while the leafy greens provide a refreshing crunch that helps to give the sandwich more texture — the Chicken Katsu comes with a crisp, golden brown batter; not particularly greasy, and comes with a good bite with the relatively tender chicken filet in between that comes lathered with a sweet, yet vinegary Tonkatsu sauce. There also seems to be a slice of processed cheese added in between, though does not seem to do much for the sandwich especially with the heavier elements such as the Chicken Katsu and the Tonkatsu sauce at play.

Having also tried the Genmai Cha Tea Set (comes with Warabi Mochi and two Japanese biscuits), I am perhaps more inclined to give the Kyoto Hot Sandwich series (think toasties featuring Azuki paste and butter served with ice-cream) and the Gion French Toast a try if I ever make my revisit to Momiji Cafe — the two also seemed like a better representation of what Momiji Cafe has to offer. Otherwise, Momiji Cafe is cafe that would likely do well with both hipsters looking for places good for the ‘gram and perhaps the Japanese community alike, bringing the memories of leisure travel to Japan for some. Momiji Cafe also retails some Japanese merchandise within the cafe, where one can enquire with their staff for more details should anyone be interested in what they have in stock.
