Hey guys, just gonna throwback to one awesome day out with the dear friend to discover many pretty things. Visited Capitol Piazza, a classy shopping mall which was revamped from the historical and once famous Capitol Theater. I was actually here to collect my faulty ASUS Zenbook which was only 2 weeks old, don't ask me why it died so quickly, it's just my luck with tech gadgets, I always get the faulty ones. Anyways, thanks to this faulty notebook, got to visit this beautifully restored Capitol Piazza. There's plenty of luxury brands, specialty stores and beautiful restaurants especially at the al fresco dining area. Obviously everything is beyond affordable, but oh well, just gonna dream for one day.
1. Capitol Theater Marquee
Personally think this megasize Marquee is so awesome for OOTDs
well nothing special on my outfit, just a dress and heels to go.
2. Dazzling Cafe
To add some sugar to our pretty day, visited the once crazily raved Dazzling Cafe first outlet. I've passed by the one in Orchard before which was more spacious and all pink, but totally love this one in Capitol Piazza more. The Mint Green outlet is just, dreamy yet classy. Anyways, just like everyone else, we were here for the much raved honey toast.
Address: 15 Stamford Rd, 01-85 Capitol Piazza, Singapore 178906
There's a fake fireplace haha
Loving all the mint green details
Hazelnut Chocolate Honey Toast - S$19.90
This is really gooood, I really wasn't expecting this to taste awesome since overhyped things tends to disappoint. But gotta say I'm impressed with the delicious deep fried toast, we ordered it in crispy texture, the toast was both crunchy but it wasn't too greasy, probably because of the aroma of sweet hazelnut. The ice cream goes well with the toast but I think it's too much of ice cream, remember to move the ice cream aside first if you don't want too many ice cream sinking into the toast and turning them soft and soggy.It's expensive but oh well, at least it's delicious. One can feed two person.
Both of us ordered Milk Tea to compliment the toast
Wedding Imperial Milk Tea - 9
Earl Grey Black Tea with Milk - 7
Shiyien's Wedding Imprerial Milk Tea was pretty interesting, has a very flowery sweet aroma to it.
My earl grey milk tea taste pretty much like Taiwan's bubble tea shop's where fresh milk was use instead of milk powder.
The teapot allows up to 3 refills
The Al Fresco dining area at Capitol Piazza with many classy restaurants and cafe.
This tea room that caught my eye, looks like one of those TaiTai place.
Just outside of Capitol Piazza, you will see St Andrew's Cathedral located at the opposite
and we decided to pay a visit.
3. St. Andrew's Cathedral
To my surprise, there was a service going on and it was a Cantonese service! Feeling super intrigued we went in and was totally mesmerized by the beautiful interior of the church. And it was my first time attending a service in an ancient church, with those dark brown benches that has a table in front of you. Only seen this in movies and dramas and it certainly felt amazing to experience it. The beautiful interior with all the pretty arches and colorful stained glass, just makes everything feel "Holier". Okay I know I sound superficial haha. But anyways it was great listening to service, connecting with God again. If you would like to get a taste of attending service in an ancient cathedral, this is where you should go!
Back to the square and the Marquee sign was lit up! Time for more Photos heh
Purposely used a filter that makes the place look old haha
Btw, just to share where we had out lunch. We had Dakgalbi at J Story. It's one of the most affordable restaurants in the mall. They provide a range of Korean meals and there's set menu as well. There are free flow serving of Kimchi, Soup and some side dish.
Spicy Stir Fried Chicken S$19.80
Ramen - S$3.90
Green Tea - S$2
The Fried Chicken serves two, it taste okay but a little bit too spicy for me. But why I love Dakgalbi is really the mix of crunchy veggies and large chunks of chicken. There's rice cake and fish cakes as well. Everything I love haha. We added Ramyeon which absorbs all the yummy sauce.
If you have a day off, why not go to Capitol Piazza which is easily accessible via City Hall MRT. Visit the pretty St. Andrew Cathedral if you feel like exploring some history.
