Whether you believe it or not, themed restaurants and other eateries go way back. Its roots can be traced from the burlesque cabarets of 19th-century Paris. While many concepts are challenging to pull off, many talented people have turned it into reality!
Take the following unique eateries as concrete examples.
FOR THE FANS OF F.R.I.E.N.D.S
The creators of the wildly popular American sitcom FRIENDS were supposed to name the show: “Insomnia Café”. They later kept it simple and picked the title FRIENDS. You see, the fictional characters frequent the nearby café called Central Perk. It is an iconic backdrop for most of their silly and touching moments.
Fortunately for you, you can reenact some of your favorite scenes by dropping by Singapore’s own Central Perk. The prices of their items might discourage most from becoming regulars, but it is something that a fan shall experience once. If the café’s novelty means nothing to you then, you might want to skip this.
Address: Central Perk, 1 Magazine Road, 01-01 Central Mall, Singapore 059567
FOR THE HIPPIE AT HEART
Picture a slate of vintage automobiles decorating a restaurant that is filled with home-style dishes. Words cannot fully capture the hippie vibe, which Kombi Rocks exudes. You have to see it with your own eyes!
Its versatility comes from being a diner, a vintage shop, a rental company, and a museum. The collection of restored cars are available for bookings at weddings and other events.
Address: 66 Yio Chu Kang Road, Singapore 545568
FOR THE SUPERHERO GEEK
With the release of Aquaman, I cannot deny the fact that the DC Comics universe has been stepping their game. Fortunately for us, we can immerse ourselves with all its glory by going to the DC Super Heroes Cafe. Choose the dishes that focus on your favorite superhero or villain!
There are two branches in Singapore including the Marina Bay Sanda and Ngee Ann City outlet. Try the vividly sweet Joker’s Rainbow Freakshow (S$16.90) or the King of Atlantis Crab Leg Aglio Olio (S$26.90).

FOR THE CAT LOVER
Unless you are living under the rock, you might have encountered the adorable gray cat called Pusheen at least once. Pusheen is an online character created by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff. Since its creation, it has been turned into merchandise and Facebook stickers. Its growing following paved for the first Pusheen-themed eatery in Singapore.
The Pusheen Café is located at Kumoya. It is a Japanese-French café, which offers food without alcohol, pork, and lard. Its menu will feature food designed by the talented @LittleMissBento (Shirley Wong) together with the Kumoya kitchen team.
The Pusheen Café is here for a limited time only. Enjoy their dishes until March 2019! 🙂
