Now, we Singaporeans can rejoice as the renowned Japanese supermarket, Medi-ya, has opened its 2nd outlet and 1st flagship store right here in Singapore. Located at Millenia Walk, it’s a definite must go when visiting the esplanade area. Although I would advise waiting for a few weeks for the crowd to die down before heading down as queue times could go up to 4 hours during peak periods.
Enough talk, let’s take a look at what they have to offer:
24,000 square feet, 2 stories? How big is it actually?
The Meidi-ya flagship store is 24,000 square feet and has 2 stories. As big as that sounds, it is actually not that big. Probably because of being split into 4 different sections, the actual supermarket section is pretty small.
The different sections consists of:
- Bakery cafe (L1)
- Food Hall (L1)
- Supermarket (L1 & 2)
- Liquor store (Separate Unit)
Savour different bread and pastries from Gokoku Japanese Bakery
Located right beside the entrance of Meidi-ya, it’s almost impossible to miss Gokoku Bakery. Upon entering, Gokoku Bakery was the first place I went for.There are plenty of choices to choose from, ranging from the japanese classics, melon bread, egg mayo and tonkatsu sandwich, to the more unique ones, Malt Karumi Pan.
Bento sets, Japanese Curry, Party Platters & more
There are a few different food stalls in the food hall, ranging from classic Ramen, to Japanese curry to even party platters for up to 5 pax. While I didn’t manage to try the food when I was there, it sure looked pretty good when I saw others eating it.
Feeling rich? There’s a premium selection just for you
Never would I have thought of spending $118 for a melon and $148 bundles of grapes. These, and many more fruits & vegetables, such as apples, strawberries, peaches, tomatoes and watermelons are the premium selections they have here at Meidi-ya.
Special & unique stuff
I know what you are thinking, yes, it is a real wasabi root, not the artificial paste you find in most Japanese restaurants. And those are Krispy Kreme, Snapple and tabasco flavored jelly beans. Ending off with a tofu factory, an entire shelf filled to the brim with tofu.
Home & Kitchen section
Shop for Japanese household items such as plates, tea cups as well as Sakae cups.
Unique snacks you can find!
They also have a wide range of unique snacks such as alcohol infused chocolate truffles and warheads candy cane, perfect way to spice things up this Christmas!
And lastly, the classics, of course they have it. Your classic ready-to-eat bento sets, ready-to-eat sushi, sashimi, fresh fruit & vegetables, a whole range of japanese snacks, frozen goods, shabu shabu meats, steaks, they have it all.
Overall, Meidi-ya has plenty to offer, from premium fruits, to the classics, and definitely some unique things here. By now I think the crowd die down already, be sure to head down to try!
