Among the selection of Southeast Asia-inspired merchandise, you’ll find products that are suitable for anyone and everyone. The art lovers will fall in love with the selection of crafts, totes, books and magazines at the bookstore, while parents can shop for kids’ adorable plush toys from La De Dah Kids. As for the tourists who’re searching for uniquely Singaporean gifts, turn to items like the Kopi Bag Mug—a cup specially created to store a Singaporean staple, kopi da bao which means coffee to-go—by Souvenirs from Singapore. Other brands that are available here include Supermama, Garance Dore and Maison Kitsune.

The Cafeteria boasts an evolving and affordable menu.

When you’re finally done shopping, don’t forget to stop by the Cafeteria to savour an array of Asian fusion dishes dishes—otah stack, green curry seafood pasta and har cheong gai satay—that were specially created by Chef Sufian Zain of Restaurant Ember.

“We felt there was a gap to be filled in Singapore for a world-class retail and F&B concept that combined a strong affinity with art and design,” says Lik Peng. “The food we serve at Gallery & Co. will have elements of Southeast Asia that will be familiar to Singaporeans and visitors from the region.”
