Time Out says

Not just another local heartland café, Kizuna, which means “close relationships forged through mutual trust and support” is a key gathering spot where Potong Pasir residents get together and bond over good food and coffee.  

Incepted by owner Shen Tan and her husband Sam Wong, the couple wanted to provide a common space in the neighbourhood where people of all ages and walks of life could come together to mingle and make new friends. If you visit often enough, especially during the weekend, you will be able to see for yourself how this cosy café and bar embodies the “kampung spirit”. 

In the day, guests can unwind over excellent coffee and cakes, and in the evening, the place transforms into a modern izakaya serving a great selection of sake and an extensive array of modern Japanese dishes like ankimo (monkfish liver) kaya sourdough ($15), negitoro kueh pie tee ($20 for 3 pieces), uni cream pasta ($15), and hotate carpaccio ($20). The menu, created in collaboration with local chef Angus Chow, changes depending on the availability of ingredients – check their online menu for the latest offerings.
