Western-inspired Japanese Cuisine: Maison Meiji is a multi-concept French-Japanese dining concept formed by Kuromaru, The Bistro, and Coffee & Tea Bar.

Look & Feel: Sitting inside the Grade II historic building formerly known as the Green House, Maison Meiji brings you back in time to the pre-war era. The vintage-inspired interior exudes a cozy and warm feel that takes its visitors back to 19th-century Japan.

On the Menu: You will be instantly captured by the fragrance of single-origin coffees accompanied by a slight scent of Japanese tea. Get a tatami (畳) seat and partake in a traditional tea ceremony with your blend of choice, immersing into the rich Japanese tea culture.

Further down is a cocktail lover’s heaven. Directed by the award-winning bartender duo, Masahiko Endo and Massimo Petovello, Kuromaru serves Japanese Shochu (焼酎), Awamori (泡盛) and a selection of flavorful cocktails.

After a drink, you can show yourself to The Bistro and get a taste of modern Japanese cuisine expertly crafted by head chef Yusuke Kitade. The main dining room serves Meiji-inspired light meals such as Japanese omlet rice and oven-baked rice at lunch. Return after sundown for a full-course experience of fusion French dishes with a hint of Japanese flair.

Great For: Coffee catch-ups, happy hour, date night dinner — literally everything!
