1. It’s attached to the 10th local MUJI store
…with the other stores located in Vivo City, Orchard ION, 313@Somerset, Paragon, Marina Square, Tampines, Bugis Junction, JEM and Changi Airport. The store spans some 10,000 square feet and sells everything from clothes and makeup to household goods and food.
2. …which has MUJI Interior Advisers and Styling Advisers
…who provide Home Furnishing consultation services and outfit coordination advice. If you’re unsure about what to get for your home, need help with measurements or deliveries feel free to check in with them; or if you are thinking about a makeover, their stylists will be able to pull off some pieces of their shelves to put together a new look just for you. The Raffles Place outlet also has a “Made-to-Order” Fabric and Furniture service where you can customise your curtains, sofa covers and rugs to suit your personal taste.
Another thing to look out for at the store is the Baby and Kids wear section. Due to popular response, it is the third store to have this extensive line.
3. It’s the 2nd Cafe & Meal MUJI in Singapore
…and there are over 10 other stores scattered throughout China, Taiwan, Hong Kong (and many more in Japan). It has a 70 seat capacity, making it larger than the first Cafe & Meal MUJI at Paragon. Like the other cafes, this Raffles City outlet aims to please local palates with an array of dishes that are inspired by their “Simple Food is Delicious” philosophy.
4. It has an exclusive menu item
The Chicken Nanban Donburi ($14.90) is a hearty serving of chicken kaarage drizzled in tartar sauce and topped with avocado, mesclun salad, fresh cherry tomatoes and daikon sprouts over a serving of 10 Grain rice. The kaarage is juicy, not at all oily and very tender. The tartar sauce is creamy yet light and doesn’t overwhelm your tastebuds. Its a dish that most ladies will find appealing due to its well-balanced portions of protein, carbs and vegetable that leave you feeling full but not bloated and it’s only available at the Raffles City outlet.
The cafe also has its wide array of delectable Hot and Cold Deli dishes which you can order ala carte ($4.80/Hot Deli or $2.80/Cold Deli) or in sets of three or four dishes. The 3 Deli comes with the choice of one Hot Deli and two Cold Deli dishes while the 4 Deli comes with two Hot and Cold Deli dishes. Both sets come with a choice of white rice or bread and you can upgrade your rice to MUJI’s special 10 Grain rice.
5. There are 7 new menu items
Two new desserts they’ve brought in are Matcha Roll Cake and Yuzu Roll Cake filled with Hokkaido cream and a glazed strawberry. The Matcha has a rich, just slightly bitter aftertaste while the Yuzu is just very lightly refreshing. The Hokkaido cream is milky and smooth while the strawberries are sweet and juicy.
The Hot and Cold Deli has four new items on the list: Baked Sweet Potato (sweet, creamy goodness), Salad with Sakura Chicken and Mixed Beans (fresh and tender), Roasted Sakura Chicken with Sesame Crust (crispy and juicey) and Baked Salmon with Miso Sauce (flakey and salty-nutty).
The Baked Sweet Potato was an unexpected treat – it can take the place of a dessert if you are the sort that needs something sweet to end your day but don’t want a full dessert.
Last but not least are the Soy-Sansho French Fries. These golden fries are crispy on the outside, warm and soft on the inside. They are coated with soy powder, a rarely-used Japanese ingredient, Parmesan cheese seasoning and sansho powder. The soy powder lends a depth of flavour while the sansho powder adds a gentle spiciness.
