According to Google Maps and some online reviews, PAZZION Café opened their second outlet at Takashimaya, or Ngee Ann City, thereabout February 2022.
It’s at a golden spot. Alongside one of the main thoroughfares connecting Takashimaya Square and the underpass leading to Wisma Atria. Here’s the funny thing, though. I regularly use this passageway and I’ve walked past the café umpteen times. But it wasn’t until April this year that I “noticed” it.
Noticed, as in I finally realised there’s a café here. Could it be because a third of the unit is devoted to retail space and I somehow kept assuming, after glances, that the whole space is a boutique?
Anyway, I was immediately attracted by the airy, modern layout and since April, I’ve bought muffins from them twice. I didn’t, on the other hand, though about having a meal there as I very wrongly assumed they are a drinks and pastry café. Mainly catering to customers buying shoes from them.
(I’m not familiar with their Jewel outlet, you see …)
Like I said, I was wrong. A friend invited me to dinner at PAZZION Café Taka last week and I was surprised by the variety of food they serve. It took me a while just to go through the menu. Other than six types of Asian-inspired mains, the selection has burgers, pasta, gourmet sandwiches, wraps, very instagrammable desserts, and a wide range of tea and coffee.
The portions are generous too! I made the right decision not to order dessert, so to speak, because I could barely finish my sandwich main. And, mind you, I wanted so much to finish my sandwich because it was great.
The following are the photos that I took that evening. In short, if you’re looking for a cool, relaxing place at the heart of Orchard Road to have a meal, PAZZION Café is a great place to consider. Given the sizes of their portions, I’d say prices are reasonable too.
Overall, I’m satisfied with my sandwich main. All that cheese meant it was also very filling. As mentioned, I nearly couldn’t finish it.
If any, my only “complaint” is that I couldn’t really taste the Emmental, it was mostly Cheddar that stood out. If I order this again, I might ask for lesser Cheddar (and Nacho) cheese in the spread.
