The Australian gourmet grocer has set up shop here, with Singapore's largest walk-in temperature-controlled cheese room, as well as an extensive deli and charcuterie, and roasted by Di Lorenzo in Sydney. Pick up something to cook at home, or sit down for a meal and see what the chefs whip up with the day's freshest ingredients.

Come here for the ambience!

I've seen quite a few bad reviews of this place. But came anyway because I was thinking a place this supposedly bad shouldn't be able to stay afloat all these years charging top dollar, could it?

I'm glad I gave this place a try. Came here with 3 other friends to pass a quiet slow afternoon. To be honest, they are rather pricey, but they have a large selection of wines and fresh cheeses to go with. The ceilings are so high that the ambience just relaxes you down easily for slow easy conversation. I didn't order the food because the pastas were all overpriced. But if you simply wish for a quiet afternoon with friends over good wine and cheese, this place is pretty much it.

All the negative reviews you've read are TRUE! We ordered 2 chef's specials: lamb rack & braised pork. The lamb rack per se was good but the potato wedges were soggy. The braised pork was ordinary..like something I can get from a local food court. The braised pork serving was about a tablespoonful, 4/5 of the plate was mashed potato. The dishes didn't have a shred of green, let alone a salad on the side. So we had to order grilled vegetables. Couldn't taste any truffle oil in the truffle fries that were served in a small bowl, which cost $12! We paid more than $100 in total for 2 pax. Definitely overpriced for sub-par quality food. We left feeling dissatisfied. Won't be going back.

After work I join my friends in this "restaurant".
 It was really hot inside no fresh air.
 I was starving, so I order from their new menu chicken burger.
 For 20$ it was bread with awfully stringy chicken no vegetable not even a lettuce.
 I was waiting 30 min.
 Definitely, I will not go back.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
