Brawn & Brains x Momofuku

Caffeinated Conversations​

The Brawn & Brains pop-up specialty coffee stand at Penhas Road will host Momofuku - to whom photography is an escape from his day job, a means of breaking the ice, and a tool for creating visual bookmarks of events and people he wants to remember. Momofuku has been a regular of Heap Seng Leong kopitiam for over 7 years - one of the last surviving old-school coffee shops that made butter coffee popular. This photography exhibition contains his memories of the baristas, elderly patrons who have memorised his kopi-c kosong order, and other individuals he has crossed paths with on routine Saturday mornings.
