Coffee aficionados in Singapore went absolutely crazy when popular Japanese coffee shop % Arabica opened its first store in Singapore at Arab Street last year.
Since then, the renowned coffee chain that hails from Kyoto, Japan has opened another 2 outlets in Singapore at 313@Somerset and Chip Bee Gardens.
While % Arabica is known for its stellar cups of coffee, the brand’s venture at Chip Bee Gardens has introduced a food section to their menu so you can enjoy some scrumptious nosh that pairs perfectly with their soothing cups of coffee. This is also the only % Arabica outlet in the world to have a food menu.
From hearty bowls of Shiso Pasta to their outrageously juicy Beef Katsu Sando, here is what you can expect from % Arabica at Chip Bee Gardens.

With that, here is a list of F&B outlets in Singapore that have closed their doors in 2020.
