A brand-new tea spot, Cafe Usagi Tokyo (Usagi translates to “rabbit” in Japanese), has opened in Suntec City, just ahead of the new year of the water Rabbit.

And just like its namesake, it’s expanding pretty quickly, too — there’s already a second outlet on the way.

While no official dates have been announced, the cafe has confirmed that the new outpost will open soon at 111 Somerset.

The eatery — billed as a modern Japanese cafe — started operations in December.

What’s on the menu?

The signature here is Cafe Usagi’s mochi ice cream (S$6), which is made in-house with Hokkaido milk. These are available in two flavours — vanilla and matcha green tea.

Handcrafted Japanese ice cream is available (from S$5), in flavours such as Samurai Blue Sea Salt, Honkaku Uji Matcha, Hokkaido Milk & Vanilla, and Lavender Hojicha. Get a scoop or two of these atop some waffles (S$6.50), which come with a choice of maple syrup or kuromitsu (black sugar syrup). You can also nibble on a strawberry mochi at S$6.90.

According to Cafe Usagi, the menu will be expanded after its soft launch.

High-quality genmaicha (Japanese brown-rice green tea, S$7.50) is also served in a surprisingly hefty teapot that’s good for four cups. 

Citing high levels of interest from customers, the cafe is looking into selling the tea leaves and other retail items in the near future. You may also see wakoucha (Japanese black tea) on the menu soon.
