Craving for Taiwan Food?
If you are looking for Taiwanese comfort food at a reasonable price, Typhoon
Cafe is the place to go.
We recently visited Typhoon Cafe at i12 Katong to savour their authentic
Taiwanese dishes. This cosy spot offers a hole-in-the-wall cafe vibe and is
famous for its delectable sweet treats, like Souffel Stackers and Mochi
Waffles. You can find Typhoon Cafe at four different locations: i12 Katong
Mall, Kallang Wave Mall, Bugis+, and Plaza Singapura.
The i12 Katong outlet has an intriguing design – it feels like a hole in the
mall rather than a hole in the wall. Situated in the basement, it lacks a
traditional ceiling, offering a semi-alfresco dining experience with a view of
the mall’s layout. It’s a unique place to people-watch and be seen.
The seating booths are decorated in light browns with pops of orange-red
cushions and Tiffany green accents, creating a relaxed atmosphere that mirrors
the casual vibe of the food.
We picked a selection of appetizers, mains and desserts for our meals.
Chili Oil Dumplings $10.80
These dumplings are packed with generous fillings, delivering a satisfying
kick without being too spicy. Overall it was a decent choice while flavouring
could be enhanced.
Double Boiled Chicken Collagen Soup $12.80
A hearty chicken meal with herbal flavours and a hint of ginseng in the
soup. This is perfect for a nourishing experience.
Panko Canadian Pork Chop With Egg-Fried Rice $14.80
The egg fried rice is familiar, not greasy, but could use more flavour. The
Pork Chop is a tad on the thin and dry side with a crispy texture. It is
filling in its own, so consider this dish and a dessert to go with it for a
Signature Taiwanese Oyster & Pork Intestine Mee Sua $14.80
If you’re a fan of pork intestine, you’ll love this dish; the smooth
vermicelli in a rich, gooey broth is a comforting delight. It’s not too
overwhelming in taste and just right for us.
Heavenly 4 Kings of Vegetables $13.80
This stir-fried mix of long beans, eggplant, stink beans, and winged beans,
cooked with shrimp sambal and garlic, offers a flavorful medley of textures
and tastes. A good option for those who want a healthier dish.
Seafood / Meat
Salted Egg Prawn $26.80
These big prawns fried with salted egg are not only delicious but also
convenient to enjoy without the need to peel.
Claypot Sanbei Chicken $13.80
The dominant flavours in this dish came from soy sauce, rice wine, and sesame
oil, blending harmoniously with hints of basil and ginger, resulting in a
delightful aroma. Additionally, the chicken itself was remarkably tender and
White Rabbit Souffle $18.90
A must-try dessert with fluffy pancakes, dried oranges, White Rabbit milk
pudding, and White Rabbit ice cream – a delightful mix of flavours and
textures for a sweet ending. This is a special limited-time item that will be
available only until 30 September at $18.90 per set.
Taiwan Ginger Red Tea (Hot) $8.50
The perfect tea to complement your Taiwanese meal with its aromatic and
Classic Milk Tea ( Oolong Based) $6.90
For those who prefer it cold, this slightly sweet option with chewy bubbles
offers a refreshing contrast to the savoury dishes.

If you are craving for Taiwanese Meal, a visit to Typhoon Cafe should
satisfy your tastebuds. The menu is pretty extensive, with a good selection of
Taiwanese favourite dishes, including signatures like Taiwan Lu Rou Rice and
Taiwanese Beef Noodles. Dessert is a must to complete your meals here.
We recommend getting the bundle set that gives you a choice of 1 side, 1 main
and 1 beverage at $15.90 for a better deal.
As for the service, we do love the casual, laid-back atmosphere. The staff were also very attentive during our meal. A return visit is a must for Typhoon Cafe,
TWD was invited for a food-tasting session; all opinions are our own.
