Marmalade Pantry is easy to spot once you step onto level three from the shopping mall's escalator, because it is in the form of a large circular enclave right in the middle of the other stores / restaurants. Even in the afternoons, this place is packed with happy-looking diners chatting away or enjoying their meals.

Got seated, and browsed the menu. The wait staff were rather efficient, constantly checking if we were ready to order.
For the first visit, it was really just tea break, so I happily ordered myself a slice of Dark Cherry Tart and an Iced Chocolate with Ice-Cream.
The tart, while topped with plenty of dark cherries, is rather barren of ingredients within. It has the texture of a pie - slightly chewy, not crunchily-fluffy like how tarts are supposed to be. The crust is of the right level of hardness - easy to break but retaining the slightly-harder outer layer of a good tart. Nonetheless, I loved the light, buttery fragrance of the tart paired with the sour-sweetness of the juicy cherries.
The Iced Chocolate is another story altogether - diluted, Milo-tasting drink which was only made nicer with the scoop of vanilla ice-cream adding flavor to it. Pardon me, or could it be that my tastebuds were blanded by the sweetness of the cake? I doubt so.
