Four New Japanese Brands at Isetan Scotts Supermarket

Isetan Scotts Supermarket Opening (1)The official opening of Isetan Scotts Supermarket Phase 2 today last Friday welcomes shoppers with new 4 brands, Johan Paris, Chateraise, WA-Dining and Matsuzo, and the reopening of Nishino Pharmacy.

Matsuzo Sweet Potato (2) Matsuzo Sweet Potato (1)

Matsuzo confectionaries are sweet yogashi style delights made from sweet potatoes that are brought straight from Miyazaki and Kagoshima in Japan. Savour the sweet potatoes in different way through this Japanese スイートポテト – Sweet Potatoes style.

Sui-to Poteto is a Japanese classic created by Matsuzo Inoue, the patisserie of the exclusive Imperial (Teikoku) Hotel in Tokyo.

WA Dining (2) WA Dining (1)

Reminding me of the deli stores found at deepachika is WA-Dining, a purveyor of Japanese delicatessens and bento boxes.

They pride themselves in the use of hig h quality Japanese beef and seasonal vegetables in preparing Sozai (Japanese Delicatessen). You can order these for takeaway, or get their convenient bento sets or even order for your house parties as well.

Some of you might be familiar with Johan Paris bakery and Chateraise cakery, both brands with existing presence at the Isetan Jurong East Supermarket.

What is special is that their Scotts branch offers exclusive items, for instance the Yuzu bread (so delicious) and Matcha Chocolate bread from Johan Paris; and a much wider collection of patisseries by Chateraise.

Johan Paris (ジョアン) is a Japanese bakery with French origins established since 1983.

Some of the favourites from Johan include their corn bread, Nihombashi bread, and the new Yuzu bread.

They are known for freshly baked Japanese-French bread using fresh ingredients in Japan. And Isetan Scotts Supermarket is its second store in Singapore.

Chateraise Isetan (3) Chateraise Isetan (2)

With more than 460 cake shops in Japan, Chateraise (シャトレーゼ) is popular with the Japanese for using fresh ingredients by working closely with the farmers in Japan. Their cakes and pastries are also very reasonably priced with prices start from just over a dollar to under $5 for a slice of cake!

I highly recommend their swiss roll, creme brulee roll, and their literally melt-in-the-mouth soft mochi. Their strawberry shortcake is pretty good too!

Sake lovers – there is something for you too. In addition to the 4 new brands, you can now enjoy Japanese sake at the newly open Kaku-Uchi sake bar in Isetan Scotts Supermarket.

Do note that the sake bar opens from Sunday to Thursday, 11am to 9pm, Friday, Saturday and eve of Public holiday from 11am to 9.30pm.

I visited them after the launch event party on my own as a paying customer and the service at the stores were excellent and the breads and sweets were delicious too.

This is why I continue to love Isetan, for bringing the Japanese Omotenashi and Japanese offerings.
