If you’re missing Taiwan, you can soon savour your favourite Taiwanese dishes and desserts at Monki Cafe at The Star Vista. The popular Taiwanese restaurant, which previously held a cosy spot along Holland Drive, has been in the process of moving since August. They’re finally set to open their doors next week, in the second week of December 2021.

Monki Cafe is most popular for serving affordable yet hearty Taiwanese grub; think Taiwan Braised Pork Rice ($9) AKA lu rou fan, and Taiwan Oyster Mee Sua ($8.80). The former features fatty braised meat chunks with a good fat-to-meat ratio, alongside preserved veggies and a bed of freshly steamed short-grain rice.

Monki Cafe also offers a slew of Taiwanese snacks, including their Taiwan Handmade Eggroll AKA dan bing, stuffed with your choice of fillings: sweet corn ($5) or chicken floss ($5).

No experience at any Taiwanese cafe is complete without a cup of bubble tea; Monki Cafe serves a decadent Black Sugar Milk Tea with Pearls ($5) that’s rich and creamy, yet not too sweet.

Take a refreshing respite from the hot afternoon sun and cool down with a shaved ice dessert; the Strawberry Snowflake ($10.80) and Milk Tea Snowflake ($6.80) are popular picks. The shaved ice menu changes up from time to time, so you’re in for a surprise each time you visit!

We’re not sure if the full menu and prices will remain the same as before, so you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled on their Instagram page for the latest updates!
