Things are about to get more interesting (and delicious) at Paragon with the first Cafe&Meal Muji opening in September
Crazy about Japanese store MUJI and its minimalist approach to design? Here’s one piece of good news that will have you jumping for joy: its Paragon flagship on Orchard Road had undergone a revamp, and the highly anticipated café is set to open on September 5 – finally!
If all you can think about is popping into Singapore’s first Café&Meal Muji, don’t wander into the main store hoping to find it there. The cosy 122 square metres eatery is actually adjacent to the retail space. Unsurprisingly, the food here is uncomplicated and straightforward like the brand, and you can expect healthy, delicious fare that’s crafted to accentuate the natural goodness of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Visited the original deli in Japan? Then the refreshing Hijiki salad and the hearty butter curry chicken should sound familiar, though the menu also includes Singapore-only, locally inspired dishes like the baked bak kut the ribs slathered in honey glazed sauce.
Over at the spiffy lifestyle concept store, you’ll find everything you need for true minimalist living – from fashion and furniture to food, stationery, travel and household products. There’s more: denim devotees can get their hands on MUJI’s exclusive collection of 100% organic selvage jeans at the Paragon outlet, the first in Singapore to stock the clothing line. Mums with bubs can also shop for adorably chic clothing for little ones, too!
Those who need a hand in sprucing up your home will appreciate the new free consultation offered by MUJI’s interior advisors, which makes following the brand’s beautiful, simple and functional aesthetic easier to achieve. Ask and you shall receive décor recommendations, and a professional proposal (hand-drawn and 3D simulation) on building a MUJI-perfect home. It also has the brand’s made-to-order service that lets you customise your own curtains, sofa covers, rugs, oak furnishings, and more to suit your needs and space constraints. You might want to warn your credit card before stepping into the new store!
