Sevens Kissaten is a contemporary Japanese teahouse and cafe in Tiong Bahru. Its 7s Omakase Set delivers the special Japanese dining experience at a very affordable price.
Sevens Kissaten @ Tiong Bahru
Located just opposite the iconic Tiong Bahru market & food centre, Sevens Kissaten @ Tiong Bahru is the sister outlet of Sevens Cafe in Joo Chiat Place. Its interior design is stylish with a white and light wood theme. The combination of Japanese minimalism and contemporary functional design elements creates an interesting space with casual elegance.
There are regular cafe-style tables as well as bar counter seats. There are also tables in alcoves for a semi-private dining atmosphere.
Menu of Sevens Kissaten
Sevens Kissaten specializes in quality artisan tea. Its food menu is fairly limited but you will find Japanese favourites like katsu sando, wagyu don, omurice and sashimi. Below is a picture of their takeaway menu. The dining in menu is available online (link at the end of this post).
Omakase Set Lunch
We visited the Japanese cafe, which opened late last year, for lunch. We ordered their 2 signature items – the 7s Omakase Set ($38) and Salmon Angelhair Pasta ($18).
The signature Omakase Set comprised 7 Assorted Dishes + Rice + Salad + Soup + Dessert. Unlike the usual omakase meal where dishes would be served one by one, Sevens Kissaten’s omakase meal was served as a set all at once – like a bento meal without the bento box.
As can be seen in the photos, tuna sashimi, grilled cod fish, croquette and egg roll were among the items in the omakase set. All the items were of good quality. There was quite a lot to eat and we enjoyed the meal. At $38, it was good value.
The Salmon Angelhair Pasta looked really pretty. The salmon sashimi had a fresh clean taste and good texture. The pasta was nicely cooked to retain a good bite. The dish was as tasty as it looked
We did not have tea at the Japanese teahoue but had white coffee ($6) instead. It was good – robust and aromatic.
All day Japanese dining
Sevens Kissaten is a great place for an affordable omakase meal. The $38 7s Omakase Set may be its claim to fame, but it is also a pleasant place to visit for a Japanese breakfast, a good meal, or just for tea and tempting desserts. It is a charming Japanese all day dining cafe – or a good kissaten (喫茶店), literally a place to drink tea, which has come to mean a Japanese-style tearoom that is also a coffee shop.
