The Marmalade Pantry

Ion Orchard is like Heaven and Earth packed in a building. In the basement level, its a shopping haven for the mankind. And when you ascend to the first storey and above, you will shop like the Gods. From Diane Von Furstenburg to Miu Miu, my wallet shrinks at the sight of the posh headboards. But situated at the centre of the second level is a casual dining restaurant with a clean, modern look. Offering a variety of fusion cuisine and indulgent desserts, the restaurant is not lacking in patrons even on weekdays. IMG_8900Oriental Grilled King Salmon with Soba: For the first time, I enjoyed the dish that wasn’t my order. The salmon fillet was seared to perfection. Cooked on the outside, but delectably moist and slightly pinkish inside. The meat is also seasoned well such that the original flavour of my favourite fish is not lost. The cha soba that they serve as a side is light, simple and a delicious contrast of taste and bite.

IMG_8888Pan Seared Snapper: The dish that I ordered, failed to impress me. Despite serving perfectly cooked snapper fillets with ratatouille, the dish is too bland for my liking. It lacks the fireworks that I usually seek for.
