A specialty coffee house (by the people behind Atlas Coffeehouse) decked out in monochromatic tones complete with communal tables, sleek marble tabletops and counters, even a rather soothing seascape-inspired ombre wall.
Lunar’s menu comprises of mainly Japanese-style fusion rice bowls and specialty coffee, on top of a selection of munchies (small bites) and Hokkaido milk soft serve-based desserts. The selection of lunch bowls mostly comes with onsen egg and pickled vegetables served on Japanese rice, with crowd-favourites including the slow-cooked Braised Pork Belly Don ($14.50), Gochujang Chicken Don ($14.50) of Korean-style roasted chicken thigh, kimchi, melted mozzarella and sweet-spicy gochujang sauce, as well as Miso-Nori Salmon Soba ($14.50) consisting of tender poached salmon topped with in-house miso-nori butter and furikake. For something equally hearty that isn’t rice or noodles, go for the Everyday Shashuka ($13.50) or Summer Chicken Stew ($14.50).
Coffee-wise, Lunar offers a variety of hot, iced, and filter specialty coffee brewed from a nutty, aromatic blend sourced from Two Degrees North Coffee Co. Try the aptly-named line of smooth cold brews such as the robust black cold brew Cosmos ($7) or creamy white cold brew Milky Way ($7), in addition to the Premium Cold Brew Tea ($7) that’s served as a macchiato topped with a thick layer of milky foam. The latter is available with a selection of six types of tea, great with Lunar’s Hokkaido Cereal Wave ($12) or Milky Way Soft Serve ($5.90), made from Lunar’s white cold brew coffee.
Bonus: Tapped sparkling water is on the house.
