[Media Invite] The First-Ever WAmazing Race! @ Wisma Atria Singapore


  • A new wave of trendy Food & Beverage (F&B) concepts set to whet your palate at Wisma Atria
  • New lifestyle brands and services to enhance the mall’s retail mix and shopping experience
Wisma Atria, one of the well-established shopping malls in Orchard Road, has lined up an exciting wave of culinary concepts and lifestyle retail offerings as part of the mall’s continuous efforts to enhance its shoppers’ experience.
“With the renewed retail offerings, which include several first-in-Singapore concepts, we aim to create refreshed dining and shopping experiences for our loyal and new patrons, while strengthening Wisma Atria as one of the best lifestyle malls in the heart of town,” said a Wisma Atria spokesperson.

So, few weeks ago, we challenge ourselves at Wisma Atria’s first-ever WAmazing Race, where Hannah (@mshannahchia) and myself as assigned team member will pit against other teams to search for five checkpoints and complete the tasks in the shortest possible time to win Wisma Atria shopping vouchers.
It was fast and furious, but mostly, it was FUN, as we rediscovered Wisma Atria like never before, especially some of the exciting newly-opened stores!
Here are some photos taken during our WAamazing Race.

Challenge: find the product as per photo shown by the Sales Assistant then we had to wore it and took a photo. On this first stop we also had to record a video.

Wisma Atria whets your appetite with six new dining options
Opening in the last quarter of 2016, one of the most exciting developments in the F&B scene, is Picnic, a 10,000 sq-ft next-generation communal dining restaurant, located at Level 3. Designed to recreate the energy and vitality of outdoor dining in a dynamic ever-changing urban park within the mall, diners are promised a fully immersive dining experience. Picnic provides a range of international cuisines, including American, French, Italian and Japanese. In addition, it will also feature an in-house third-wave coffee bar and cocktail bar. Picnic is the latest brainchild of owner, Cheng Hsin Yao, creator of the critically-acclaimed Omakase Burger brand, which is located on Level 1 of the mall.
Joe & the Juice makes its debut in Orchard Road at Wisma Atria this month. Serving an array of organic coffee, freshly made fruit and vegetable juices and rye bread sandwiches, this contemporary Danish cafe offers a funky and healthy-packed experience to shoppers grabbing a breakfast bite or a lunch-to-go.
Fans of the popular bubble tea brand, Gong Cha, may now set their sights on its newest outlet at Wisma Atria, opening in September at Basement 1. It will join the ranks of other food cluster favourites, such as Llao Llao, Ben’s Cookies, Garrett popcorn and Famous Amos.
There are more reasons for dessert lovers to celebrate this December, as Fruce, a coconut-based dessert-in-a drink shop, and Eyescream and Friends, a new-to-market Spanish ice cream brand, open at Basement 1. Fruce, which is created from the combination of the words ‘Fruits’ and ‘Fusion’, amalgamates tropical fruits with coconut as the key ingredient, favourite local desserts and homemade toppings, to create their signature series of beverages.
As the name suggests, Eyescream and Friends will offer a visually appealing ice-cream eating experience. The ice-cream, which comes in a variety of flavours, including vanilla, chocolate, cheesecake, yoghurt, mango and strawberry, is created in cylindrical solid blocks that are frozen at -25 degree Celsius. The blocks are trimmed using a specific Asian style of shaving the ice-cream, in order to obtain layers of “shaved gelato”. As a final touch, two googly sugar candy eyes are placed on top of the “eyescream”.
Keep an eye on for Samurice, which offers delicious Onigiri and Bentos using specially selected rice, seaweed and salt produced and imported from Japan at the basement food cluster in January 2017. Samurice will join the family of Japanese cuisine, Kotobuki Japanese Izakaya and Japan Food Town that are currently found in Wisma Atria.
