I refer to Ngee Ann City as Takashimaya although the department store is only part of it. Just for ease of reference. You can truly feel the Chinese New Year buzz here with their yearly bazaar at the basement atrium. … Continue reading
Finally tried Laduree. Just didn’t feel right though, to have it in a takeaway bag. Definitely spoils the experience. I would skip the chocolate next time and definitely go for the rose again. The orange blossom was lovely and fragrant … Continue reading
After being disappointed by the closed queue at Laduree we still had macarons on our mind. So we both opted for the S$12.90 set at Paul which included macarons. Alas, they were just sweet and not great. The cream brulee … Continue reading
We were dismayed that there was no dining in concept, just take away. That totally zaps the fun out of it. (5 May: just learnt that Laduree will open a tea room perhaps in a year or two but I … Continue reading
We had to check out the yearly Bazaar just outside Takashimaya where I saw people milling around to try samples. Hard to even walk in here but you sure can feel the pre Chinese New Year excitement. What I also … Continue reading
I find the Food Basement at Takashimaya so interesting. Can’t compare to what there is in Japan but it’s still pretty amazing. There is always something new to see and this time we stumbled upon a Hokkaido food fair with … Continue reading
I have passed by Pique Nique a number of times but never tried it before. Well I finally did. Sauntered towards this little cafe on a whim as everywhere else was too crowded. I didn’t find the seating too comfortable, … Continue reading
These giant chicken paos were so yummy. Treats like tea, chocolate, biscuits, and even super expensive japanese prawn crackers can all be found at the food hall. Mostly gourmet stuff that cost quite a bit. Even if you don’t buy … Continue reading
I like that there’s a mini bowl of Udon at Tsuru-koshi, for just S$4. The regular sized one with an egg that looks so good huh?
TWG opened a new branch at Takashimaya. I think Royal Copenhagen used to be in this spot. The Indian owners of TWG must be doing really well and it’s no wonder as I’m sure their profit margins are very high. … Continue reading
Was craving for bacon, so opted for one of the breakfast items (served all day) at Cedele (Takashimaya/ Ngee Ann City). It was pretty quiet and I liked that you can be sort of left alone. Prices are higher than … Continue reading
Wanted to try this new Parisian Cafe (or French Bakery Restaurant) that’s come to Singapore. Been reading so much about it on all the Singapore food blogs. My conclusion is the wait staff could smile more and be more polite, … Continue reading
I saw many new Japanese eateries and beautifully packaged and tempting gourmet treats. Was most tempted by the TWG store where my favourite tea ‘Tea Party’ was being sold. So glad my cousin picked this tea when we had high … Continue reading
This little pink dancing lion was just the sweetest thing. Kids can stage their own lion dance performance a bit like the puppeteer show in ‘The Sound of Music’. And very expensive gold plated dragons. I think the price tag … Continue reading
The Teddy Bear Christmas Tree is one of my favourites this year for being so unique and cute. This was at Ngee Ann City but the Takashimaya portion (street level where they sell cosmetics and umbrellas). So many kiddos with cute … Continue reading
Haven’t been here in a while. It’s a nice place to get a taste of Japan. The carrot, chicken and cranberry sandwich here is so good and healthy too. I loved the lemon bun as well. … Continue reading
According to the Modern Twist website, you can actually get these cool placements at Takashimaya in Singapore. They cost a whopping US$18 each. I think maybe I’d better stick to the pretty ones at Ikea which cost about a fraction … Continue reading
