The Centrepoint Has New Stores Like Unique BBT & M’sian Street Food, Score $25 Shopping Vouchers

New stores at The Centrepoint


In a city where new places debut almost daily, it might seem odd to get this excited about any particular one. But a whole host of swanky new stores finally fill the void in Basement 1 at The Centrepoint, and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t thrilled.

If you’re looking for a reason to be in Orchard for the 3rd time this week, the new stores below will be it. Plus, there are some nice $25 shopping vouchers in it for you.


Satisfy your sweet tooth


BJ Milky Tea might be the only bubble tea store in Singapore where you can get your sugar fix from a deaf barista.

Our faves include the Muddy Bear taro milk tea ($5.50) and the Brown Sugar Fresh Milk ($5.50)

Over here, the menu is pretty traditional. You’ll find an assortment of colourful brewed tea with dozens of toppings from spongy black tapioca pearls to slippery aloe vera jelly. Once you’ve put in an order at the kiosk, head towards the pink pickup wall where a fluffy bear paw will deliver your goods.

If BBT doesn’t fill you up, there’s Fruit Paradise right next door. 

The impressive menu is 11 tarts and cakes deep, but the few savoury items such as the Pork Shabu Kimchi Tonkotsu Cha-Nabe Set ($15.90) are also highly recommended. Fuel up on a piping hot bowl of simmered pork bone broth with noodles or rice and cap off your meal with a slice of the Mixed Fruit Tart ($9.35).


Pick up gifts & hobbies


Keep Flower Matters on speed dial for when you need unique floral bouquets and gifts last minute because you procrastinate again.

At this boutique shop, you can get everything from fresh flower hand bouquets, dried floral arrangements, standees, wreaths, and Jellycat plushies. They offer same day delivery but it’s best that you order 24 hours in advance.

Those hoping to become the next Master Chef can get an expert grasp on a handful of dishes thanks to the cooking classes at Pots & Pans Culinary Studio.

Over here, you’ll get some special attention from chefs whose stints include running the kitchen at the Mandarin Orchard Hotel and Resort World Sentosa. Come try your hand at making Japanese noodles, Asian desserts, Thai cuisine, and Dim Sum.


Feast on Spanish & Malaysian cuisine


Good drinks, great food, and cool interior are what tie La Bird together.

Be smart and do what we do: start with the chef-recommended Crab Smashed Potatoes, then get the Squid Ink and Pea Fideua ($13.90), and finish it all off with the obligatory Spanish Roasted Bird ($33.90/whole). Oh and get several glasses of gin-based Dellen Rose cocktail ($15) or Passion Fruit Sparkler mocktail ($5.90) to wash it down.

If Malaysian street fare is more your jam, head straight to Malaysia Boleh! and  eat yourself into a food coma.

With 8 stalls, it might be difficult to settle on just 1 dish. That’s why we’d suggest you try them all. 

Slurp up the Teochew Kuay Tiao Soup ($5), devour the Claypot Chicken Rice ($5.50), double down on Char Kway Teow ($5.50), and tear out the juicy thighs of the Dang Gui Duck (from $15). Then, roll yourself back to the office or home.


Redeem $25 shopping vouchers


IYKYK, and if you don’t, then the answer is yes, there are major opening deals happening at The Centrepoint as we speak.

From 3rd-14th October, hit up La Bird, BJ Milky Tea, Malaysia Boleh!, Fruit Paradise, and Flower Matters on weekdays and snag up to $25 shopping vouchers when you spend at least $50.*

As for FairPrice Finest shoppers, you’ll need to drop $100 or more to score yourself a voucher. Stock up on groceries and make a pitstop at the new Grocer Bar, where you can treat yourself to freshly shucked oysters ($19.90/6 pieces) or a Charcuterie Combo ($19.90) cheese platter that comes with a glass of red wine.

On 15th and 16th October at 12pm and 5pm, make it your mission to come back to The Centrepoint because there’ll be free BBT, food samples, and flowers await at the main entrance.

*Vouchers can be used at La Bird, Flower Matters, BJ Milky Tea, Fruit Paradise, and Malaysia Boleh!. Not applicable to Pots & Pans Culinary Studio and FairPrice.


Visit the new stores at The Centrepoint


The next time you find yourself in Orchard, make a detour and go see the new stores at The Centrepoint. Come for lunch, stay for desserts, and linger around for some freebies and discounts. Told you there’s more to this mall than just Decathlon.
