Award-winning food artist and blogger Shirley Wong, also known as Little Miss Bento, is bringing her latest food designs to a limited-time pop-up café at Kumoya@Orchard Central from Oct 21.

Named MY LITTLE BUDDY CAFÉ, it is South East Asia’s first LINE FRIENDS pop-up café and will be divided into two sections – BT21 world and LINE FRIENDS world.

The BT21 world will include the eight characters KOYA, RJ, SHOOKY, MANG, CHIMMY, TATA, COOKY, and VAN as part of its decorations. 

Customers can also choose to dine at the LINE FRIENDS section, where the walls will be decorated with popular characters like CONY, BROWN AND SALLY.

MY LITTLE BUDDY CAFÉ’s menu will be curated by Shirley and the Kumoya kitchen crew, with the themed food designed after both BT21 and LINE FRIENDS characters. 

These include the BROWN burger, CHIMMY seafood curry and TATA beef Bulgogi.

The menu includes six snacks, five mains, three desserts and 10 drinks, with the prices ranging from $11.90 to $28.90.

LINE FRIENDS is a global character brand that first started with the original characters like BROWN, CONY and SALLY, who were used as stickers for the LINE mobile messenger app.

Back in Oct 2017, LINE FRIENDS partnered with world-renowned K-pop boy band BTS to create eight characters for their BT21 collection.

MY LITTLE BUDDY CAFÉ opens from 11am to 9.30pm daily, and is located at Kumoya@Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Road, Orchard Central, #04-08.
