One of Singapore’s most well-known cafes, The Marmalade Pantry is officially closing down their flagship outlet in ION Orchard next month!
Having been around for eight long years, this homegrown brand will be sorely missed as our go-to cafe at Orchard Road for their decadent mains and exquisite desserts. For fans of The Marmalade Pantry, you have one last chance to bid adieu to their ION Orchard branch from now to 12 August 2018.
Diners who visit them during this period of time will also get to enjoy a sweet treat at S$8 when they pay with Mastercard and an additional 15% discount off their total bill for a la carte items as well. Do note that this is only for The Marmalade Pantry’s ION Orchard outlet. READ ON

The Maple Mania—Tokyo’s famous Maple Butter Cookie—is now in Singapore!
Established in 2013, The Maple Mania is well-known for its Maple Butter Cookie that is ranked as the number one best-selling product in Tokyo Station for three consecutive years from 2015 to 2017.
A sister company of famous cheese cookie chain, Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory, The Maple Mania focuses on using pure maple syrup directly sourced from Quebec, Canada in its pastries.
What makes their maple syrup unique is the mixture of toffee, spice, herbs and floral flavours in it. Packed with this sweet syrup, The Maple Mania’s buttery cookies are perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
Here’s what you can expect from The Maple Mania’s flagship store at ION Orchard.
A brand new dining concept by WATAMI originating from Tsukiji, Japan, Niku Kappo offers diners authentic Japanese Kappo-style delights through its colorful menu filled with a diverse selection of food options.
As the word “Niku” suggests, Niku Kappo’s menu has a strong focus on meat. From Meat Sushi to Meat Hot Pot, Niku Kappo only seeks to present Japanese cuisine at reasonable prices.

Located at the basement of ION Orchard where the food hall is, the newly opened Mr. Churro is seeing crazy queues, even at 3pm on a Monday! One can only imagine what peak hours and weekends would be like.
It has been four years since we wrote our guide on restaurants in Orchard Road and though we update them from time to time, we thought it is high time to re-curate and to introduce a new guide, featuring even more dining places in Singapore’s most famous shopping street.
Options are aplenty and no doubt we are all spoilt for choice, but are they really worth their queues/ price tags/ waiting time? We have friends from overseas who visit Singapore and have limited time on our sunny island, and then we have our locals who do not want to waste their calories unnecessarily.
The next time you head to Orchard Road, you need not face the risk of stepping in to a random diner and not knowing what to expect.
Here is the Ultimate Orchard Road Food Guide—Top Places to dine at Orchard Road, Somerset and Dhoby Ghaut:
“Where can I have a meal for under $20 in town?” The answer: The Marmalade Pantry, but for a limited time only. Enjoy 1-for-1 on main courses (complimentary meal will be the lower value of the main course) during dinner every Monday from 6pm – 10pm.
A main course at Marmalade Pantry is around $20 to $28 (excluding the steak & eggs at $38). With the promotion, you pay less than $20 for each main course. For instance, the signature crabmeat linguine is $24, but you only pay $12++ after discount.
I think it’s a fantastic deal and everyone should drop by Marmalade Pantry at Ion Orchard before they end the 1-for-1 promotion. If you are planning to go next Monday, read my previous review on The Marmalade Pantry for more recommendations.

One of the best parts of my job is discovering new hidden gems. After having a good meal at Yakitori Emmau, I am happy to introduce it to you as I feel that it is one of the few restaurants in Orchard that is worth checking out.
Yakitori Emmau at level four of ION Orchard is the second franchise of the Japan’s No. 1 Izakaya restaurant.
For Mother’s Day 2012, it is offering a special Collagen Tori Nabe set menu for 4 pax at only $120. The set comes with Caesar Salad; assorted Sashimi platter; Kushiyaki (skewers) platter; Tori Nabe soup which has a generous serving of ingredients; and the Enmaru Roll.
Like mentioned in my Guide to Mother’s Day Dinner, the set menu definitely has more than enough food for a family of four, and at just $30/pax, I think it is a fantastic deal.
