|Cupcakes and Cakes~|
The premise is a very open space in the mall and hence can be rather noisy and it lacks privacy.
Saving Up For Desserts
We realised that The Marmalade Pantry is also a participating merchant under The Entertainer Mobile App and it offers a One-For-One Main Course which promises guaranteed savings of at least SGD8!! *WOW*
This provides us more budget for the sweet pleasant stuff afterwards 🙂
|Offer from The Marmalade Pantry|
One tip to make your money more worthwhile is to order 2 main courses of almost the same prices as the item of the higher cost will be charged and the cheaper one will be given away for FREE.
|YAY! We SAVED as we SPLURGED!|

Beef and Red Wine Ragu (SGD26++)
Braised Oxtail, Garlic, Parsley and Red Wine Jus
I ordered this right under the Pasta and Risotto Section from the Weekend Menu.
My choice of pasta was Fettuccine 🙂
|Beef and Red Wine Ragu (SGD26++)|
This tasted pretty savoury but can be a tad too saltish if you eat too much of it.
I pretty much enjoyed this dish.
Beef Burger (SGD28++)
With Cheese, Balsamic Onions and Truffle Fries
Kriston ordered this – as usual he enjoys ordering the most expensive item on the Menu huhhh~
|Beef Burger (SGD28++)|
This somehow looks pathetic for a SGD28++ main course. I think MacDonald’s Cheese Burger should look better than this with my favourite pickles at least.. LOL!
Kriston admitted that his burger tasted disappointingly mediocre ~ see? Price does not necessarily means quality all the time!
The truffle fries on the other hand tasted pretty good – it has a very rich fragrance of truffle oil and I loved it lots! I have been stealing bites from his fries throughout :p
Lemon Brûlée Tart (SGD14++)
YAY! Time for desserts!
|Lemon Brûlée Tart (SGD14++)|
This somehow resembles hotcakes with whipped cream but trust me, the tangy lemon flavour of the tart makes it a refreshing choice for dessert! We loved this dessert the most out of the others we have tried at The Marmalade Pantry 😉
Sticky Date and Toffee Pudding (SGD14++)
with Vanilla Ice-Cream
|Sticky Date and Toffee Pudding (SGD14++) with Vanilla Ice-Cream|
I love the warm and moist texture of the toffee pudding topped with caramel sauce. Oh, not to mention that pairing with vanilla ice-cream makes it a great match!
Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge Cake (SGD8++)
|Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge Cake (SGD8++)|
We did not enjoy this cake because it is simply too chocolate-ty. The portion is too big and we get nauseous from that chocolate overdose 🙁
The service is slow with staff going helter-skelter without serving much purpose.
We asked for 2 glasses of warm water whilst our orders were being taken but it was soon forgotten by that staff who took our orders. Luckily the other staff realised that our table was empty and came over to offer help.
Le’ Total Damage
|This is no joke, but we saved at least SGD30 on main course!|
|Blessed-looking Selfie ~ Yummy 🙂|
I would not say that the main courses are fantastic. In fact, not all desserts tasted great too except for a few.
However, we will still make a return visit to the place as it is a great place to chill and to enjoy some sweet treats in ION Orchard 😉
