I always never have enough time when I'm in Singapore to catch up with all my friends so I was sad I could only spare an few hours to have tea with Ade. She had originally suggested one of the chocolate places at 313 but my sister mentioned there was a Dean & Deluca and I knew we had to go there...
Now, Orchard Central is not my favourite mall, the layout is quite messy and the stores are an eclectic mix, to put it politely.
Locating Dean and Deluca was a bit of an issue too and it was really full, even at 4 in the afternoon. We had to wait awhile for a table and the queue for food was even longer. Good thing there's a view of the on site rock climbing wall to distract the masses of people.
We had iced teas and cakes. The tea was lacking in taste but I absolutely adored the blueberry cheesecake I ordered. I'm not usually a fan of cheesecake but this was amazing.
If you want to pick up groceries, they also have a fine food section, I even spotted Mariage tea amongst the selection.
