Marmalade is a classic slow-food experience. The experts say that making marmalade involves cooking the ingredients slowly over a very long period of time so as to draw out every last drop of flavour from the fruits. We had brunch recently at Marmalade Pantry ION Orchard. The food was good but it was certainly a slow dining experience.
Wimbly Lu is a cafe and chocolatier that has become well known for their chocolate truffles and waffles. Their popularity must be one of the reasons for the traffic woes in Jalan Riang off Upper Serangoon Road. Their new outlet, Wimbly Lu Tyrwhitt, is a cosy space in the hipster neighborhood of Jalan Besar-Lavender. Parking should be less of an issue at Tyrwhitt Road and, in any case, the location is more accessible by public transport
A gentle reminder to readers who have not used their “Redeem Free Treats” ESSO Vouchers, obtained from buying fuel from Esso Singapore. They expire on 30 April 2017 and so you have a few days left. They can be used to pay for free treats at Udders ice-cream, Soup Spoon and PastaMania. The best place I could think of that was convenient and had both Soup Spoon and Pasta Mania was JEM shopping mall in Jurong East. So that was where I headed with a bunch of vouchers in hand.
We stopped by at Kith’s Cafe Marina Square when they were celebrating their 8th birthday. They also gave us reasons to celebrate with them by offering a 20% discount (which we believe was for one day only) and some gifts – toys from the past. Since their first outlet in Park Mall, Kith’s had expanded briskly in recent times. Just as in Park Mall (which is now being rebuilt), Kith’s is located right next to designer furniture store, Xtra.
63CELSIUS Paragon is a new restaurant that opened recently on the 4th floor of the Paragon Shopping mall on Orchard Road. The first 63CELSIUS outlet is located at Asia Square Tower 2. We had brunch at 63CELSIUS Paragon recently.
Soi Thai Soi Nice is a Thai restaurant that took over the space formerly occupied by the Atmosphere Bistro Bar in the Alexandra Central Mall (next to the Ikea store). Except for the change in name and cuisine, the new restaurant appears to have retained the layout of the restaurant. Which is a good thing both for comfort and for environmental reasons as the place had been well furnished with cushy chairs and nice furniture. Attracted by the enticing weekday set lunch menu, we decided to try out this new Thai restaurant in Alexandra Central mall.
