There are new items at Unagiya Ichinoji (at Riverside Village Residences and Suntec City), but the one to try is the Ichinoji Cold Somen ($29.80). Besides charcoal-grilled unagi, you’ll also get smoked duck and Hokkaido snow crab claw, with somen doused in chilled dashi. And till Aug 31, you get 10 per cent off all unagi items.
In the 60s, a treat from the Magnolia Snack Bar at the old Capitol Building was the highlight of the week, and 50 years later, it returns as MiniBAR, located at Centrepoint (#01-105). The ice cream creations are made for social media, so you'll find pretty items such as Teh Tarik Dinosaur ($3.90) and Taro Milk Shake ($3.90) which you can pose against eye-catching backdrops.
