Deli Japanese Cuisine, Muji
This week, we explored the Café&Meal MUJI situated in the heart of town - The Paragon. The cafe sits adjacent to the Muji store which makes it very convenient for anyone to be drawn into, especially with it's minimalist furnishings.
What you have to do upon entering the café; Grab a reservation plate and a set of menu and proceed to your desired seat.
Then, proceed to the counter to place your order. As the steps suggest, you may have realised this is a grab and go (aka self-service) café. And with that, all prices shown on the Menu are nett; without GST or Service Charge.
The seating capacity of the cafe's about 32 - 36 pax (including bar seats). The cosy and homely atmosphere definitely lives up to the Muji trademark.
(Left) 3 Deli Set / (Right) Basic Set 1 - Japanese Style
Basic Set 1 - Japanese Style (SGD 7.80) - comes with a Cold Deli your choice, White Rice (or Bread), Onsen Egg (or Konbu), Miso Soup (or Vegetable Soup) and Minced Chicken.
For the 3 Deli Set (SGD 12.90) - you get to choose 1 Hot Deli and 2 Cold Deli and a choice of White Rice or Bread.
The menu boasts about 16 different deli dishes altogether, cold and hot. You can also get the a-la-carte deli dishes at SGD 2.80 (Cold) and SGD 4.80 (Hot). Click here to view the full menu.
On the left, we have the Cold Deli - Prawn & Edamame Salad with Spiced Mayo Sauce, a very refreshing summer-styled salad and is commonly seen in Japan. On the right, we have the Spicy Chicken Tofu as the Hot Deli. Surprisingly comforting, and it has the home-cooked vibe.
Now, on the not-so-positive note, the serving is unusually small and sadly, it didn't fill our tummies well. But looking back, where can you find a SGD 7.80 Japanese meal in a café setting in Orchard? For that, I think it is still worth the pennies! We would come back again; maybe if we are not too hungry! :P
