The Place Since established in 1999, Marmalade Pantry is no stranger to the food scene in town serving modern casual Bistro but it took me surprisingly long to have a chance to step here. There are currently 2 very distinct locations for Marmalade – in the City (Ion Orchard) or at the Stables (Fairways Drive). The Ion Orchard outlet which I visited is located at the central atrium of level 3 where it is a totally open dining concept.
The Food As I already had dinner elsewhere, I only managed to try some desserts in Marmalade.
Affogato ($9) – I love the strong Espresso, a testimony of the good quality coffee served here. The Vanilla ice-cream is rich enough to blend well with the Espresso, definitely one of the best Affogato around in town.
Strawberry Milk Shake ($9) – Made from fresh Strawberry, this is not too sweet and yet the taste is thick enough for my liking. I will say that it is one of the best Strawberry Milk Shakes around as I have tasted countless versions which are overly sweet and blended from artificial Strawberry.
Chocolate Fudge Cake ($7) – Allow me to introduce one of the worst Chocolate Fudge Cake I have ever tasted. The cake is simply way too dry and bland. Nuff’ said.
Will I return again? To be fair, I will want to return to try the Brunch items as well as the Afternoon Tea set despite the fact that the Chocolate Fudge Cake is horrendous.
