mo-ii – GSH Plaza

mo-ii is just one of the few new occupants that had moved into GSH Plaza along with other tenants such as The Salad Corner, Workspace Espresso and more.

Nesuto – Tras Street

New to the Tras Street neighbourhood is Nesuto, a patisserie affiliated with Shuu which are the folks that had brought us those irresistibly oozy and incredibly filled choux puffs at KOKI Tamagoyaki at Raffles City. Unlike Shuu where their choux puffs are sold alongside the tamagoyaki range at KOKI Tamagoyaki’s kiosk at Raffles City, Nesuto…

ERGON Singapore – Suntec City Mall

Opened opposite Gudetama Cafe in Suntec City is ERGON Foods Singapore, the first Asian outpost of the Greek deli cafe-and-grocer concept that has outlets operating in different parts of Europe. Located in a medium-sized shop space, the well-organized interior was barely claustrophobic, with the grocer and cafe sharing a common space and yet still contains…

Steamroom with The Pillar and Stones – Orchard Central

Yet another retail-cum-F&B concept has opened in town; this time round being Steamroom with The Pillar and Stones at Level 3 of Orchard Central.

Tsukiji Fish Market Restaurant – Orchard Central

Orchard Central had seen a rather big revamp in its tenants ever since it had started a while ago. Names such as STRAY by FatCat, Pompompurin Cafe, Henri Charpentier have started operations there ever since the revamp, and Tsukiji Fish Market Restaurant is the newest kid on the block currently. Situated at the Sky Garden…

Rabbit Owl Depot – The Woodgrove

Two years ago, Rabbit Owl Depot had opened their first outlet along North Bridge Road, serving ice-cream as well as their signature Snowflake Waffles with a variety of rather unique toppings. Fast forward to now, Rabbit Owl Depot had finally opened their second branch in Woodlands, targeting the heartland crowd. We do not find ourselves…
