Marina Square : The Dining Edition

Where to eat in Marina Square or the Suntec Shopping area is one question I am often asked. Previously, I would be hardpressed to think of a good answer, but now, I’m happy to report that the “gourmet zone” of Marina Square is finally up! This gourmet zone comprising of 16 restaurants, bistros, cafe bakeries, patisseries and coffee joints is known as The Dining Edition and it is definitely worth a visit if you are in this area!

We were invited on a Media Tour of The Dining Edition and we nearly collapsed from eating our way through 13 of the eateries that were already open 2 weeks ago! Of the 16 tenants there, there are several new-to-market names to look out for such as Lady M Confections (an established New York City cake boutique which will be opening its first outlet outside of USA!) I’m really looking forward to this one! As you can see from my post below on Saint Marc Cafe, I have a sweet tooth and I’ve plans to revisit soon.

This is the directory of all the eateries at Marina Square’s The Dining Edition

St Marc Café

A couple of months back, my father mentioned the opening of a new cafe at VivoCity. He’d heard about how good it was from his colleagues so he imparted the knowledge to me with much enthusiasm. I made sure to have it checked out during my next visit to VivoCity but I was not impressed by what I saw. There were quite a number of those fake plastic models of the ice creams and desserts they served, and this is something I do not associate with cafes serving good coffees and desserts! I must admit I had judged a book by its cover, but who doesn’t when choices are aplenty but money isn’t?

Then it so happened that my colleagues and I were at VivoCity after an event so we just stopped at St Marc Cafe for a quick break. I ordered a Royal Milk Tea without too much expectations. The drink turned out to be a pleasant surprise! The milk tea was unlike any other milk tea I have ever drunk in my life! It was very thick, had a bit of a caramel flavour and was just extremely delicious in taste. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture of it as I didn’t have my DSLR with me that day, but if you ever go to St Marc Cafe, you have to try the Royal Milk Tea! If I’m not wrong it costs $6!

Fast forward to 2 weeks ago, I was kindly invited by Sixth Sense Communications to join in a media tour of the latest highlight at Marina Square : The Dining Edition. The Dining Edition is Marina Square’s new gourmet dining zone and was renovated to a tune of $15m. The 50,000 sq ft area boasts 16 exciting mid-to-upscale restaurants, bistros, café bakeries, patisseries and coffee joints and the eclectic mix is made up of both local and international brand names.

This was when I was reacquainted with St Marc Cafe again! We had the opportunity to try 2 of St Marc Cafe’s best loved items, the Choco Cro as well as the Little Fuji.
