Butter Bean Facade

Butter Bean @ VivoCity, Kopi & Toast With A Twist – HarbourFront, Singapore

Butter Bean @ VivoCity, the second outlet after Funan is now open. The latest concept by BreadTalk Group, a fun and uplifting brand, redefine traditional Nanyang coffee to appeal to the younger generation.

The concept has sunshine yellow as the brand colour. This colour is extended to the entire interior space as well.

At Butter Bean, Order and payment are contactless. Simply scan a QR code to order, pay and then collect the food.

The first drink that I tried is the BBrulee Kopi Latte ($3.20). Similar to the latte, concentrated Nanyang Kopi is added to fresh milk and crowned with signature salted cream. I am surprised that the savoury hint blend well with the kopi. If you prefer, you can order the Teh variation, BBrulee Teh Latte ($3.20).

The G.M Kopi BBliss ($3.50), an ice blended drink, is another recommended drink.

Other specialty local beverages include the refreshing Lychee Orange Tea ($3.50), the BB Rose ($3.50).

There are a total of 8 open-faced Toast ($2 onwards per toast). The thick butter toast has a similar taste profile to the Brioche, fluffy and yet dense, with a crisp edge. Some of the popular selections are PB&J and Say Cheese.

If you are looking for something wholesome, you can select the sandwiches – B.F.F Battered Fried Fish ($4.60), which I tried. The entire combination is so tasty. I believe it is the sauce that spice up the flavour. I am planning to try the C.F.C Crispy Fried Chicken ($4.60) at my next visit.

Four rendition of local favourites which include Laksa Love ($6.80), Curry On Sunshine ($6.80), Taiwan-inspired Braise Me Up ($6.80) and lastly the Hey You Hae Mee ($6.80). All food are pork and lard free.

NAHMJ Verdict

I am in awe with the creativity of the team who concocted the Nanyang Kopi in a espresso style. The entire local kopi and food are elevated to a cafe standard.
