Jurassic World Café at ION SkyJurassic World Café at ION Sky.



Dining with dinosaurs at at ION Sky’s Jurassic World Café.


Okay, this one caught my attention right away, the very hour it was announced.

A movie-themed pop-up café in Singapore! At a panoramic location I’ve never taken the effort to visit too!

Yeah, a pop-up café perfect for movie-lovers i.e. what I brand myself as on this blog.

About the Jurassic Park/World franchise, well, I’m not a huge fan although I still make the effort to watch every new release. Thanks to my yearly Christmas Eve visits to Universal Studios Singapore, I’m also well, WELL familiar with the merchandise.

Did I mention the theme song is also one of those … you’ve-made-it pieces to perform on the Electone? (Thus, why I’ve never attempted …)

Anyway, the following are my pics from last evening’s visit. In short, I’d say the food isn’t much to go rawrrrrrr about. But it’s all about the ambience, the plating, and of course, the stunning city views from ION Sky.

ION Sky

Again, I’ve never been to ION Sky, despite knowing about it for over ten years. It’s inexplicable, really. And so this dinner was a great chance to finally visit one of the best FREE panoramic spots of the country.



The “welcome” at the lift lobby.
Nice touch! The lift was fitted with illuminated dinosaur backdrops!

Jurassic World Café Singapore

There was a brief queue at the actual café entrance. And so by the time I was seated, sunset was over.

Incidentally, you also have to order and pay before entering the café. Prior to taking the express lift, you’d be given a menu and an order sheet.

Jurassic World Café Ambience.
Lots of plants and illuminated dinosaur backdrops for atmosphere.
A commemorative table cover! I took one home.

My Order

Jurassic World Café Hot Matcha Latte.
I started off with a rather menacing Hot Matcha Latte (SGD 6.50).
Volcano Curry.
After much indecision, while queuing, I decided to have the Volcano Curry (SGD 23/-). It was the most “picturesque.”
Geological Parfait.
Geological Parfait (SGD 16/-) for desert. The mossy-like layer surrounding the dino is pistachio (I think), BTW.

About the food quality, erm, how to put it?

The volcano curry might look like a blast, but it was actually quite mild in spiciness? The curry sauce had a creamy coconut taste. However, the mountain i.e. the rice and the chicken chunks were rather bland.

The Geological Parfait was great, though. Kinda small compared to how it seems on the menu. Nonetheless, it was quite an adventure to dig through. I particularly loved the Oreo bits right at the bottom. It’s like hitting real-soil. LOL.

Post Dinner

I lingered for another 20-minutes after dinner, snapping photos here and there. On this, if you’re visiting, do take note. All visits are limited to one-and-a-half hours. If you intend to enjoy the panoramic views and all that, do time your meal.

Jurassic World Café Singapore.
There’s an attractive photo booth. There’s also a Lego raptor. Yikes!
Singapore Cityscape.
The night view outside was truly stunning. Hard to get a decent shot, though, no thanks to reflections.


Jurassic World Café ends on January 3, 2021. If you’re visiting, I strongly recommend you make an online reservation at the official page before heading down.
