Review - Jones the Grocer and Arteastiq


OMG!! Should have done this review earlier on but I procrastinated and procrastinated until now. So here it is.

One day (forgot when), Diana and I went to try this new restaurant - jones the grocer at Mandarin Gallery. The place is very cold and the food is just so-so. There wasn't much variety and the price is a bit on the high side. About $20 or so for one main course.

New dining place~

The interior looks nice though.

Mushroom rice. Not to my liking. 

Potato wedges. Yum! But cost $7 for so little pieces =.=

Overall, don't think it's worth it to go there. The food is not fantastic enough to justify the price. Just my personal opinion only.

After dinner, we went to this cute cafe called Arteastiq (also in Mandarin Gallery). I like the atmosphere and the interior design there.

art + tea = arteastiq

Nice counter. 

Diana. I like her scarf! 

Me! Chilling out =)

Diana's hot chocolate. It comes with a bar of real chocolate. Lolx~ 

My Pu Er Cha. Look at the unique teapot! 

I love their colourful chairs.

Overall, my Pu Er Cha is not too bad. Diana said that her hot chocolate is average. Price wise, it's quite similar to that of TCC so still acceptable. So now, there's one more place to chill out in Orchard area. There were not many people there so you can find a seat easily. Do check out that place if you are too tired from a day of shopping!

By the way, just wanna show you a picture of the crazy crowd queuing at H&M.

 Crazy right? Just queue to go in only. Maybe still need to queue to try on the clothes and also queue to make payment.

I can only take photos outside lor. Boo-hoo =(
