The newest outlet at Millenia Walk will be its biggest in Singapore at 24,000 square feet, and the two levels will be interconnected by a travellator for added convenience for its shoppers. Located on Level 1 are the bakery and food hall, while the Japanese-style supermarket is on Level 2. There is also a wine & liquor store on Level 1 located just opposite the duplex store that boasts an impressive selection of over 370 varieties of sake.
Upholding MEIDI-YA Japan’s mission of “More Than Just Freshness”, MEIDI-YA’s Singapore outlet at Millenia Walk is also dedicated to delivering a wide variety of fresh food imported directly from Japan, for an authentic Japanese supermarket shopping experience.
Fans of high-quality, authentic Japanese products can expect authentic Japanese food in its international supermarket, bakery, and food hall. This includes fresh Japanese fruits, vegetables, and meat, that is air-flown directly from Japan thrice a week and shipped by sea once a week. To maintain high safety standards and regulations, MEIDI-YA ensures that all imported food undergoes regular checks by the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).
At MEIDI-YA Millenia Walk, shoppers can look forward to five interesting highlights which include the Japanese Concept Café & Bar, Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza, Gokoku Japanese Bakery, a Food Hall, and an International Supermarket.
1. Japanese Concept Café & Bar
Unwind at the first of its kind Japanese Concept Café and Bar in Singapore, an 88-seater alfresco dining area that is adjacent to the Food Hall on Level 1. If you’re looking for a perk me up, grab a coffee made with organic, fair-trade coffee beans at the Café Terrace, or wind down in the evenings with an ice-cold beer at the outdoor Beer Garden. Look forward to delicious food at affordable prices, a no-frills setting, and great service.
2. Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza
With Hokkaido being Japan’s food haven and a popular travel destination among Singaporeans, MEIDI-YA brings a taste of Hokkaido to Singapore! Customers can experience a year-long holiday in Hokkaido at MEIDI-YA’s Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza. MEIDI-YA has been given exclusive rights to use the term ‘Dosanko’, by the Hokkaido Government, which refers to authentic Hokkaido products.
Enjoy a delectable selection of Japanese treats and look out for specially curated items that are directly imported from Hokkaido, including authentic Hokkaido sweets, Hokkaido Crab lunch boxes, and soft-serve ice-cream. That’s not all! There will be a Winter Hokkaido Fair from 28 November – 13 December 2020.
3. Gokoku Japanese Bakery
Located at Level 1 within MEIDI-YA is Gokoku Japanese Bakery, an authentic Japanese ‘wa’ (和) bakery from Kobe, Japan. Founded in 1961, Gokoku Japanese Bakery is known for its healthy buns made using only the finest Japanese ingredients and hearty grains. Bread is freshly baked daily using Japanese flour and traditional ingredients such as brown rice and sakadane (fermented dough). The Gokoku Japanese Bakery at Millenia Walk is the first Gokoku outlet in Singapore to feature a dine-in café experience and an exclusive sandwich selection made using the bakery’s signature bread and buns.
4. Food Hall
Love all types of Japanese food? You’ll be spoilt for choice at the Food Hall located on Level 1. Choose from a wide selection of delicatessen, Japanese curry, and a Nakajima sushi counter – where fresh fish is directly imported by Nakajima Suisan, the largest fish supplier in Japan.
5. International Supermarket
Get your grocery fix at the international supermarket on Level 2! Expect authentic Japanese food and products, as well as an extensive assortment of merchandises from international brands – including confectionary items directly imported from Europe and popular American brands. There is also a wine & liquor store located on Level 1, opposite the duplex store, that has an extensive range of sake, including popular picks like Dassai sakes which are exclusively imported from Yamaguchi, Japan.
In addition to offering fresh produce and household products, MEIDI-YA will also have a Japanese Health and Beauty Store where Japanese health & nutrition products, beauty products, and toiletries are available.
