There is a new travel-lifestyle concept cafe in Singapore and it is none other than HyfeCafe—which just opened its doors in Tampines 1 this March 2018.
Ever wanted a conducive place to plan your trips with your friends? HyfeCafe it shall be. This cafe by Changi Recommends is a one-stop place for you and your travel buddies to plan your travels, book your attraction tickets and passes, purchase travel insurance and more—all while enjoying casual Asian-fusion fare!
HyfeCafe is Singapore’s first ever travel-lifestyle concept cafe where all your unanswered questions and/or planning woes will be solved. Cafe-hoppers and travel-lovers, this cafe has to be on your list.
TRAVEL CONCIERGE COUNTER
There is a travel concierge to make your trip-planning experience truly hassle-free. The staff will be glad to answer all your enquiries and guide you through your travel plans and provide you with more information!
Solve all your pre-travel needs at one go! On top of planning your trip, HyfeCafe also allows you to make bookings for products and services—including overseas attraction tickets, day tour packages, transport passes such as the Japan Rail Pass, and of course, their ChangiWiFi router.
But that’s not all. Besides the information counters and flyer wall, trip-planning just got a whole lot easier as HyfeCafe provides free tablet usage embedded with their booking system and it is free for all diners to use.
Be it a solo backpack trip, family holiday or a short getaway with your other half, all you have to do is to pick your favourite itinerary, key the code into the system, and you are halfway through planning!
Also, fret not if their curated itineraries are not to your liking. Select your preferred destination and customise your itinerary by replacing existing activities with those you are interested in and voilà, your dream-trip just came true.
TRAVEL PLANNING FLYER WALL
In addition to their incredibly easy-to-use TripPlanner device, diners can also feel free to refer to the cafe’s travel planning flyer wall that is filled with several travel brochures of which diners are free to grab and even take home.
Who knows? With such comprehensive tools to further aid you in your itinerary planning, planning your next trip will be a breeze!
PLAN YOUR TRIPS WHILE EATING
And you think you are going to sit down for hours to plan your trips without some perk-me-ups? That is not going to happen at HyfeCafe.
The travel cafe gives off the same cosy vibe you would typically derive from a cafe but make no mistake that their food speaks of a quality that goes far beyond your usual cafe fare. There is a menu with affordable restaurant fare from a fusion-focused array of offerings from hearty sides, mains, and decadent desserts worthy of the ‘gram’.
On the drinks menu, there is wide range of coffees, juices and tea by the pot at affordable prices. And we must say that coffee is pretty decent here! Pair your drinks with their wide range of Asian-fusion dishes. Cafe-hoppers will be glad to know that their menu is pretty reasonably priced.
You definitely have to try this house special. HyfeCafe created this concoction using their housemade yogurt. Flavoured with mango and passionfruit, this pretty much tastes like a Korean-style Calpis and it is the perfect summer drink!
WINGS OF THE EAST
These chicken wings—Wings Of The East (S$6.90)—absolutely stole our hearts. They were so flavourful that we just couldn’t stop at one! Choose from 3 different Asian-inspired sauces and spice—such as teriyaki soy, salted egg yolk sauce and curry honey.
Can’t decide what appetisers to start with? The Sharing Platter (S$13.50 for 2, S$21.50 for 4) has a little of everything—from deep-fried calamari and popcorn chicken to tomato bruschetta and chicken sausages.
TERIYAKI SALMON UDON
Their Teriyaki Salmon Udon (S$14.90) is a crowd favourite. Accompanying the slightly sweet and chewy stir-fried udon is a huge slab of salmon that is cooked to perfection and generously doused in teriyaki sauce.
SALTED EGG FISH & CHIPS
Complementing the classic Fish & Chips is Singapore’s favourite golden salted egg yolk sauce. Nobody says no to this Salted Egg Fish & Chips (S$13.90) which goes well with their flavoursome salted egg yolk sauce and tangy mayonnaise served at the side.
SEAFOOD SQUID INK BAKED RICE
This is not your typical baked rice. The Seafood Squid Ink Baked Rice (S$10.90) sees a bed of fresh prawns, squid and mussels sitting atop squid ink rice. Baked with mozzarella, this value-for-money dish is a flavourful one that you must try.
And of course, no trip to a cafe is ever completed without desserts! HyfeCafe pairs their Golden Waffles (S$8.90) with a scoop of ice cream and we absolutely loved it.
Their waffles are super crispy on the outside which complements the fluffy interior, and together with their rich ice cream and fresh berries, this dessert will leave you satisfied and wanting to come back for more.
With HyfeCafe, both your trip planning and your travel journey will be an unforgettable experience. We all know that it takes a while to plan your dream trip, so do not worry if you can’t finish it all up in one sitting! There is an option for you save your itinerary, and send a PDF of it to your email.
For those who are unable to find their ideal destinations or attraction places, HyfeCafe is constantly updating and adding new countries, cities and attractions to make your itinerary-planning experience better.
We reckon that we aren’t the only ones who find this travel-lifestyle concept cafe alluring, so why not head down to Tampines 1 today?
