Fans of the ‘90s sitcom Friends
can rejoice as Singapore has just welcomed its own version of Central Perk Cafe
) at Central Mall.
The project started out as a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo earlier this year, and is the only branch outside of the United States to be granted official rights by Warner Brothers. All the interior details match those in the show down to the neon lights, exposed brick walls and, of course, the iconic orange couch.
Also on display are Rachel's runaway bride dress, Phoebe's cat in her guitar case, Monica's kitchen and Chandler and Joey's foosball table. Expect dishes like Janice’s Oh My God Baby Back Ribs, Ross’s Ahh Unagi and Chandler’s Thanksgiving Chicken (all at SG$36, [B892]).
There are six different blends of coffee (SG$4-8 [B99-198]) to represent the show’s main characters—from Chandler’s smoky blend to Joey’s full Italian roast.
