Feast On ‘Honkai: Star Rail’ x Kith Café’s Faithful Recreation Of Food Delights

Following in the shoes of its highly-popular open world cousin Genshin Impact, Honkai: Star Rail has been roped into the themed café experience. The space fantasy RPG trailblazed its way into the bubble tea scene with CHAGEE Singapore earlier this year, and it’s now looking to satisfy the taste buds.

From 11 October to 14 November, the Kith Café outlet at Millennia Walk will play host to a welcome party for the Honkai: Star Rail crew — and it makes sure to celebrate the collaboration in style. Greeting visitors at the entrance are character cutouts featuring March 7th and Dan Heng in his Imbibitor Lunae form, with upcoming five-star release Topaz positioned further in on the right. The intergalactic flair carries over to the counter, where the official event artwork accompanies a line of adorably-designed party flags.

Step into the dining space, and more themed decor awaits. The walls are lined with character art of Seele, Himeko, Kafka, and Jingliu, the latter two of whom have also been immortalised as standees. It’s fitting, in a way — the tie-in coincides with the game’s 1.4 update, which features Jingliu on the limited-time character banner.

As expected from a themed café, the menu includes recreations of food items in Honkai: Star Rail. Combo A comprises the Frostweave Salmon Bread, Deep-Fried Flying Sea Anemone, and Steamed Puffergoat Milk, while Combo B brings the Belobog Sausage, Snapper Jam Appetiser, and Jim Roger Bread Soda. Meanwhile, Combo C bundles Granny Chen’s Tofu and Cosmic Fried Rice with Star Taro Bubble. The pricing for each set is fixed at S$29.70.

There’s also a healthy spread of side dishes (S$8.25 each) to feast on. Where the Stone-Roasted Meat Skewers and Grande Rejuvepill appeal to the savoury palate, the Berrypheasant Skewers and Tuskpir Wrap come in as sweet-tooth alternatives. Himeko’s Coffee is perfect for a pick-me-up, especially for the deranged folks who can gulp down piping-hot, bitter bean water without batting an eyelid.

No matter the choice, diners won’t be disappointed by how the food will look. Most of the offerings are nearly identical to their in-game counterparts, which is quite the impressive feat. For the unconvinced, here’s a side-by-side comparison of the Cosmic Fried Rice, Snapper Jam Appetiser, and Tuskpir Wrap in and out of Honkai: Star Rail:

It doesn’t hurt that the dishes taste more than decent, either. While there wasn’t an opportunity to take a bite out of Combo A, both Combo B and C found a standout in the Snapper Jam Appetiser and Granny Chen’s Tofu respectively. The former came with a generous helping of melted cheese — but not so much that it became overwhelming — and a crispy crunch that gave way to tender flesh on the inside.

As for the silky-smooth tofu, diners can expect an almost immediate melt-in-the-mouth sensation, with the sauce packing just the right punch. The Stone-Roasted Meat Skewers was our choice of side dish, and its gravy made an impression with a well balanced tang and the right amount of viscosity.

Between the two, Combo C triumphs as a personal favourite. Apart from Granny Chen’s Tofu, the Cosmic Fried Rice and Startaro Bubble went light on the taste buds, making them highly recommended for individuals with a mellower palate. Those who prefer stronger seasoning should opt for Combo B, which offers a more intense blend of savoury flavours.

There are freebies up for grabs, too. After purchasing any of the three sets, visitors who complete the social media activity will receive a collaboration holographic ticket (with virtual codes) and a postcard. Order two combo meals in a single receipt on weekends, finish the task, and they are set for a collaboration acrylic standee — all subject to limited daily availability.

It wouldn’t be a complete themed experience without some merchandise, however. Past the dining area, acrylic character stands, badges, acrylic pendants, and more line the shelves, tempting fans to fork out anywhere from S$3.50 to S$21. If you’re feeling particularly lucky, feel free to take part in a lucky draw for a chance to walk away with a Pom-Pom badge.

Kith Café will also kick the Honkai: Star Rail festivities up a notch on weekends. In addition to multiple mascot appearances from Pom-Pom, various cosplayers are set to grace the event from 11 am to 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays as Jingliu, Kafka, Dan Heng, Himeko, and more. More specifics on the cosplayers will be announced in due time.

The Kith Café outlet at Millennia Walk (9 Raffles Boulevard, #01-44/45) is now taking reservations for the Honkai: Star Rail dining experience. Online pre-orders should be made at least two days in advance, but walk-ins are allowed if they are sold out for the day.
