The Marmalade Pantry–Revamped dishes and revamped cupcakes!

[Media Invite]

Here’s another update on another F&B business that has been around for awhile! Did you know the Marmalade Pantry has been around for 18 years? They opened in 1999, and after a few location changes, are now located at ION Orchard, Oasia Hotel Novena and Oasia Hotel Downtown. Thanks to the ION Orchard outlet, I’ve always had the impression that The Marmalade Pantry is the place to see and be seen, and I guess that is still correct because it is almost always full house there! If you want to beat the crowds, you can try the Oasia Hotel Downtown outlet, which is very much more spacious.

Anyway, The Marmalade Pantry has recently done another revamp to its menu, with a focus towards new interpretations to existing favourite dishes. The dishes are meant to be unfussy and to score on taste. Scroll down to see the new dishes, as well as the revamped line-up of cupcakes. Has your favourite cupcake been retained?

This Spanish Heirloom Tomatoes & Burrata Cheese is an elevated version of the traditional Caprese Salad, but using burrata and seasonal heirloom tomatoes. Arbequina (olive) oil is used.

    Of the lot, my favourite has got to be Saveur Art’s Egg Confit. It’s sous vide egg with truffles balanced on top a creamy potato mash. Wobbly egg that bursts at the slightest touch, need I say more? The fried soba sprinkled on top was a great addition too as it lent a delicious crunchy texture to it’s tenderer counterparts.

    [New Year’s Eve] Salt Grill & Sky Bar

    It seems like the turkey has hardly been stuffed before one needs to contemplate a fitting way to end the year with a blast. The truth of the matter is that I’m always quite shocked to discover (after Christmas) that the New Year is but 7 days away.

    Well, what to do for New Year’s Eve has been put on the front burner after I received this invitation to sample Salt Grill & Sky Bar’s New Year’s Eve menu. And should I call it New Year Eve 2014, or New Year Eve 2015? December 31 is undoubtedly still in 2014, but put another way, it is also the eve of the new year of 2015! You tell me the answer.

    Salt Grill New Year's Eve Menu (3)

    I love dining at Salt Grill & Sky Bar. If you’ve been there, you’d know that the view is fantastic. You can see out for miles and miles, and some how, it feels like Singapore has fewer high rise buildings than I would have thought. Singapore boasts quite a number of roof top / sky high restaurants, but many are in the financial district. So, another thing that Salt Grill has going for it is its convenience, being perched 50 storeys above the ION Orchard shopping mall. This is probably why they’ve come up with a brunch menu as well as an afternoon tea service, to cater to the ladies of leisure (or aspiring ones) who may feel peckish after a spot of shopping. The private room, perched one level higher is also the spot for many a business dinner, as was the case the last 2 times I was there.

    Salt Grill NYE Tasting Menu

    Anyway, after arriving for dinner, I was promptly told that I would be sampling ALL the dishes on New Year’s Eve 2014/2015 menu. No problem! I had just spent 1 hour at the Takashimaya Trim Shop jostling with the other early bird Christmas shoppers so I had dutifully worked up an appetite. As always, you will be greeted with a welcome soup, in the form of a coconut broth with Sydney spice served in a shot glass. It tastes exactly as its name suggests, and not only warms you up but whets your appetite in anticipation of what’s in store.
