New in town: Cafe Gui — Minimalistic Japanese-Korean cafe with Dalgona honeycomb coffee

Cafe Gui is the latest addition to the numerous amount of cosy cafes found all over Singapore. While most cafes here opt to follow a singular theme, Cafe Gui boldly chooses to combine both Japanese and Korean cuisines to bring something fresh to the table.

Opened on 15 Sep 2022 along Irrawaddy Road, Cafe Gui certainly looks the part with its almost all-white approach and minimalist aesthetic. The soft lighting all around also helps set the mood for dining. It also has cat-themed cups as well as drawings of felines displayed in the cafe.

You can expect both Korean and Japanese favourites at Cafe Gui, which is perfect for days when you can’t decide on what to eat. The Dosirak Rice Bowl comes with Korean spam, a sunny side up, kimchi and pickles for S$15.90. Keeping with tradition, it is served in a rectangular tin box where you are supposed to give it a good shake to mix the ingredients up. 

The Japanese alternative is the Arabiki Sausage Rice Bowl (S$14.90). This includes Japanese arabiki sausages, minced pork, soft Japanese scrambled eggs and pickles.

As for dessert, you can choose either the Japanese green tea-based Hojicha Pudding or Korean Black Soy Pudding, both of which are priced at S$6.90 each. Although the dalgona coffee trend happened years ago, their in-house special, Dalgona Honeycomb (S$7.90), is a must-try as it’s topped with actual blocks of honeycomb on whipped espresso.
