In conjunction with the launch of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT for PlayStation 4, fans can bask in the essence of Final Fantasy at the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT pop-up themed café at Watanabe Coffee, Orchard Road Shaw House.
Diners will be treated to an all Final Fantasy themed experience along with a Final Fantasy themed set menu which consists of Moogle Curry & White Stew and a choice of one of the two specially themed drinks (or a other normal drinks like coffee or tea for you ordinary folk) for $28.90++ along with a free Final Fantasy coaster that comes in 6 different designs which are given at random (so don’t be too surprised if you get a duplicate).
The Moogle curry was honestly pretty good although my standards for themed dishes aren’t very high to begin with, the meat and prawns were flavourful but the rice was a little to hard and clumpy (I couldn’t break it apart with my spoon), Drinks wise you have a choice between the Materia, which is a Pineapple based drink that I recommend for those who are guilty of having a sweet tooth, or the more balanced Moogle which a peach based drink topped with oh so fabulous whipped cream.
But the biggest selling point is to get a chance to buy limited Final Fantasy merchandise straight from Japan! From plush toys to figures to acrylic stands honestly its something a real Final Fantasy fan should not be missing to purchase, unless they don’t mind flying up to Japan and get the merchandise there of course.
Overall, I do believe that the set menu is a little bit too pricey for what you’re getting but then again you’re paying for the experience in the café, as well as the chance to get exclusive merchandise and of course try out the upcoming Dissidia Final Fanatsy NT on one of the three PS4 set ups at the café. So what are you waiting for? Head down to Watanabe Coffee before you’re too late!
