D’Munchies Café in Australia Opens at 4:20

D’Munchies Café in Australia Opens at 4:20

You don’t need to be stoned to enjoy the restaurant’s indulgent offerings

Menu items include a pepperoni pizza pretzel hot dog, and a chicken burger topped with bacon, hash browns, Cheetos cheese sauce, and lettuce on a milk bun.

D’Munchies, located in Newtown, Australia, makes no secret of its target customer, with its marijuana leaf mural and opening time of 4:20 p.m. Perhaps Pyne is onto something in appealing to marijuana-smokers, as D’Munchies follows in the footsteps of a restaurant in Amsterdam that encourages diners to smoke before arriving.

Pyne tells the Daily Mail Australia, “We're having a bit of fun with the menu and it's about the atmosphere we create in there as well.” No edibles here; menu highlights include a pepperoni pizza pretzel hot dog, the ‘J-Rizzler Chicken N Cheetos Burger,’ which features fried buttermilk chicken, bacon, hash browns, Cheetos cheese sauce, and iceberg lettuce on a milk bun; and Bone Cakes, made with caramelized banana, whipped ricotta, cinnamon-spiced pistachios, butter-roasted walnuts, and Manuka honey, reports Mashable. Customers can also create their own ice cream using ingredients like pretzels, sour gummy worms, and Nutella.

Most of the food is made on-site, including the bacon, thanks to the help of a German butcher. The restaurant, which seats only 20, has a takeout option.

Tian Wang 甜旺 – Mahjong Themed Local Dessert Cafe That Opens Till 3AM, At Jalan Besar Near Swee Choon

Perhaps there is that “Swee Choon effect” which creates more demand for supper and sweet treat demand in the vicinity, Tian Wang 甜旺 Phat Chic Forever, Obsessive Chocolat Desire (OCD) Ice Cream Café and LA VIE are all dessert-focused cafes that opened recently in the same area.

Tian Wang 甜旺 is a local dessert café that opens till 3AM daily, located next to Butter Studio at 145 Jalan Besar.

Just so you know: the shop is a family-owned business, and the interior is mahjong-themed as that is what all of them love to play.

(On a side note: other than the ”Fa” feature wall, I wished the MJ theme would be applied to other aspects from the tables, accessories, to even names of desserts. Just so that it is more fun and cohesive.)

Choices include D24 Durian Mousse ($6), Durian Sago ($5.80), Durian Bubur Cha Cha ($5.80), Mango Sago ($4.20), Coconut Milk Mango Ice ($4.20), Barley Ginkgo Nut ($3.80), Bubur Cha Cha ($3.80), Red Bean with Lotus Seeds ($4.20), Honeydew Popping ($4.20), Peach Gum ($6.80) and more.

Some of the recipes for the more traditional desserts such as Orh Nee, Sesame, Almond and Peanut pastes are passed down from the late grandmother of the family.

However, the owners also improvised the menu a little to attract a younger dining crowd.

They were only toying the idea of opening a shop for the longest time, but it was their uncle who is a veteran Singapore actor (with the surname Li) who gave them the confidence to try it out.

The one dessert that impressed me was the Yam Paste with Pumpkin and Ginkgo Nut ($4.80) which was thoroughly smooth (without clumps) and not too greasy or sweet at all.

Orh Nee that taste almost tasted quite homemade, in a good way.

Accordingly, the paste itself is prepared daily freshly in the morning, and placed in a warmer to ensure it doesn’t ‘solidify’ and that texture would remain creamy.

While the Mango Pomelo Sago ($4.80) lacked a certain creaminess that I would have preferred, it was considered decent bowl with sweet cubed mangos and generous portion of pomelo – in fact one of the most I had in recent times.

The one thing noted for their desserts that sugar level was kept lower, without interfering the taste too much.

The Snow Fungus with Pear ($4.20) turned out to be thirst-quenching refreshing, so that you can still taste the natural sweetness of the pears with a certain lightness to boot.

Tian Wang appears to be a promising local dessert café that supper-goers would love to head to.

However, there were some operation processes to be ironed out – during our first visit dessert were served fast, while the second time it took more than 20 minutes despite visiting during off-peak hour with not many customers around.
