MUJI Singapore opens its tenth store at Raffles City, which also comes with the second Café&Meal MUJI here. There are quite a few reasons why this new store gets top marks from us.
We’d go to MUJI’s new 10,600-square feet space at Raffles City to revamp our lives – they’ve got the experts there to tell us how to improve our lives the MUJI way, i.e. make it simpler, yet more functional. Go to the Interior Advisors for tips on how to furnish your home in the clean, minimal aesthetic that we love the brand for, and in the most space-efficient way. When you pick out your new sofas, curtains, covers and rugs, you’ll get to choose the design material, colour, size of your new furniture buy all thanks to the Made-to-Order Fabric and Furniture service; the Raffles City store is also the place where select pieces from the Oak Furniture range will be customisable.
The inside of your wardrobe gets a revamp as well, as there will be Styling Advisors on hand to guide you along in the way of styling yourself in head-to-toe MUJI, which is definitely something to aim for, especially considering all those well-cut organic cotton tops, and the flattering skinny jeans.
So grab these Advisors and ask away, and then go grab a simple yet incredibly satisfying meal at the second Café&Meal MUJI, the other main attraction at MUJI Raffles City. The 70-seat space will make the perfect respite for lunch breaks on weekdays, and a pit stop while out shopping on weekends. As expected, there will be new selections being added to the menu, like a Chicken Nanban Donburi – which also happens to be a Raffles City exclusive – featuring fried chicken in tartar sauce with avocado, fresh mesclun salad, cherry tomatoes and daikon sprouts. Order a side of the Soy-Sansho French Fries, with shoestring fries peppered with a seasoning of parmesan cheese and a bit of sansho spice. As for the hot and cold deli dishes the Café&Meal MUJI is known so well for, the latest additions are a Baked Salmon with Miso Sauce, Roasted Sakura Chicken with Sesame Crust, Baked Sweet Potato Cake and a Salad with Sakura Chicken and Mixed Beans – all healthy and light, but very much tasty.
In celebration of the new store opening, MUJI has given us plenty of reasons to drop by: the first 200 customers each day to spend $100 in a single receipt will get a 10% MUJI voucher and a limited edition cotton bag; while the minimum spend to qualify to become a MUJI member will drop from $100 to $70 till 10 August. MUJI Members will then get x2 MUJI$ during this time, and if it’s your birthday month, then it becomes x3. This new store gets a 10/10 from us already.
The new MUJI store is located at #02-20/20A/22 Raffles City. Open from 10am-10pm daily, last order at the Café&Meal MUJI is at 9.15pm. muji.com/sg
