Instagrammable pink cafe in Orchard, SIngapore

It’s no surprise that restaurants and cafes are taking advantage of the Squid Game hype. Brown Butter, an Instagrammable pink cafe at Orchard, hosts the trending Honeycomb Challenge which a much less gory forfeit.

You don’t have to be broke to be eligible for the game. All you need is minimum spending of $30 per table and follow Brown Butter’s Instagram page to be entitled to one Dalgona candy per person. A reasonable condition, in my opinion, considering it is about the price of one main and one drink.

The available shapes that we noticed were star, circle and heart.

According to analysts, the star is the easiest shape due to its short and straight lines but I broke off an edge within ten seconds. Embarrassing.

On the other hand, Monice, the other co-founder, completed the challenge easily.

Winners are entitled to a free surprise drink or dessert that is chosen based on a random card draw. We got an Iced Latte, which was extracted from a light-roast and nutty blend.

For a more insta-worthy drink, get the Messy Lattes series $8.9.

The Sakura Matcha is a stunning rose-flavored matcha latte. It was too sweet and a little decadent. And frankly, you’re paying for the aesthetic.

For mains, we went for the Triple Cheese Chicken ($24). The best part of the dish was the mixture of Monterey jack and cheddar; its smoky and sharp notes counteracted the sweet elements of the dish. I thought the sugar waffles was interesting with the embedded sugar cubes which added texture and sweetness. But it was too cloying when paired with the maple syrup. Furthermore, while the chicken had a nice crunch, it could be juicier.

The Forage Cafe and Earlybird Cafe did it better at a lower price.

Verdict

This instagrammable pink washed cafe certainly wins in terms of aesthetics. The food isn’t too bad either, perhaps just a little pricey for their quality.
