A Great Night @ Ion Orchard With Wenhui

Posted on: November 16, 2009

I remember Wenhui seeing pictures of me enjoying a meal @ Marmalade Pantry with my cousins & she commented that she’s keen to try out the food =)

Plus she got good comments about Marmalade Pantry from her friend too so we arranged to meet up @ the new branch @ Ion Orchard for dinner.

It is my first time @ this new branch (previously it was @ Palais Renaissance but it was closed already & they shifted here) & while i’m ok with the open concept, i thought it be better if the tables can be placed slightly more apart.

Since it’s Wenhui’s first time @ Marmalade Pantry, i recommend her to try the Crabmeat Linguini which is a popular dish. I’ve tried it before & it’s nice!

As for myself, i decide to try the Steak Sandwich & it turns out to be a good choice. Beef was tender & i really like the caramelized onions & wasabi mayonnaise that was in the sandwich. The crispy & flavourful tapioca & sweet potato chips were pretty good too.

Ladies…. Please take note! For Monday – Saturday @ 6pm onwards, there be 20% off the food bill & there’s special price for Champagne Cocktails  & House Pours.

So now you can start planning more Girls Night Out with your friends!

But we didn’t stay for drinks cause firstly we already intend to go to TWG for tea & secondly my dear friend is Pregnant!! =)  So no alcoholic drinks for her!!

I’m so happy for her!! Her EDD will be April’10. The gender is not known yet but i’ll ask her when i see her next month for our X’mas dinner =)

After dinner, we proceed on to TWG which is just 1 level down.

I’ve never been to the Republic Plaza branch but i’m glad they now have a new branch @ Ion Orchard which is a much more convenient location for me.

Lovely cakes on display when we enter TWG & just look @ the range of colourful macarons! I end up buying some for my brother’s gf to try as she loves macarons =)

Tea galore! Many choices for you @ TWG… And i really like the lamps! It’s nice.

I love the huge colourful tins that was on display & it’s just next to us! It end up being a great back drop for phototaking later.

We tried the Geisha Blossom Tea which is green tea with a blend of fruity & floral essence.

It taste like green tea when you drink it but when you pour out the tea, it has this nice fragrant smell – both of us thought it smell like peach!

I like this picture very much & thanks to this guy from the next table who kindly took this picture for us. It turns out so nicely =)

Since Christmas is just next month, all the decorations @ Orchard are already up & how can we leave without taking any pictures.

This X’mas tree is outside Ion Orchard & i really love the purple theme!

Apparently you can walk into the X’mas tree & if you look @ the upper left picture, it’s what you will see when you are inside.

But it was pretty hot & i started sweating A LOT!!! =_=

But overall it was really lots of fun taking the pictures. One of our favourite picture is the bottom right one! We took our reflection & the effect turns out nice with a bit of the purple light around it.

And just one last nice picture together with Wenhui before we go home – love the background! =)

Looking forward to next month X’mas dinner! I suggested Ootoya @ Orchard Central. It be another round of good food (based on the positive reviews on hungrygowhere.com) & picture taking of the X’mas tree/decorations.
