there are 3 malls next to our hotel puli at jingansi station. ^^
reel mall is right by the hotel, and it connects underground past the metro station to crystal gallery. lippo centre is across the road.
after a good hotel breakfast, we walked over to reel mall. joel robuchon is located here, and le salon, joel robuchon’s pastry shop, was the first shop as we entered reel mall..
JR just closed shop in sentosa..chinese much richer & prices no doubt higher than singapore!
there was a food hal at B2 of reel mall, with good standard food specialty stalls..
the teochew braised goose stall looked good.
payment at the mall are mostly by QR scanning no cash. this stall didn’t know how to use the credit card machine for foreign cards, so we were not able to buy.
thee are interesting cakes, tiramisu etc at one cake stall..
on the higher floors there are restaurants & cafe..we had a good piccolo latte at seesaw cafe (a chain) at level 5….
it was pretty good, though not better than tiong hoe in singapore.
there was a spacious open area, so we sat there to sip our coffee.
there were restaurants at every level.
on L4, there was a place for painters/artists to practice on their palette, and sip coffee.
this photo of jingansi was from i think level 4.
we went to look around at crystal galleria which is connected underground to B2 of reel mall past the jingansi metro station.
after that we bought sashimi & unagi etc from reel mall & went back to our hotel room to enjoy the food. 🙂
the sashimi rmb118 were relatively ex..2 botan ebi were good..the others hotate, salmon, atlantic surf clam below par can get better in singapore supermarkets like donki!
other than the 2 botan ebi, sashimi was otherwise mediocre = hotate ok but not as good as the ones we bought from donki singapore, and salmon was not the better belly cuts.
grilled prawns also so so.
the live unagi 河鳗 – really good whole unagi kebayaki for rmb108.
excellent! top draw, the best! ^^
these were live river eel in the tanks.
they grilled on the spot…quite fabulous unagi kebayaki!
we decided to relax & chill at our hotel room, drink coffee & watch movie.
weather was hot, and we were meeting WT & GY later at nanjing donglu station to go to 外滩, and then to 陈记for dinner. 🙂
