In fact, one of my secondary school classmate's father owns Sia Huat. Yes, the world is that small. I didn't even made the connection till I saw his FB page. Haha. If I didn't remember wrongly, I think he did mentioned before back in those ol' days that his father "sells cutlery" stuff? Hmmm. Hahaha. What a description. Trivia.
I was at the store the other day and snapped a few quick shots of things that caught my fancy. Just look at the aisle of baking tins and whatnots. If only I had one of every tin there...
Baking ingredients; Flexi-molds
A pity the store doesn't sell gourmet baking ingredients too though. It would easily fit into the theme of the store layout. Just a small selection of quality ingredients would be awesome for those who are shopping and decided on a whim to go home to bake immediately. The flexi molds are super! I want one of each (if price isn't a factor that is). Various entremet shapes possibilities! Ah, well, no I shall be practical. I'm not a pro cook/baker so I don't need those. Yeah, I can only want them. ;)
Lots and lots of tableware...
How cute is that footed glass cake plate with its domed cover?? *squeals*
Animal pancake pan; Popcorn machine
The store has like practically every machine imaginable. From standard grills, blenders, drinks dispensers to the quirky cute animal pancake pan and old school popcorn machine shown above. Adorable arn't they?
The SousVide Supreme is currently retailing at ToTT and it's sorta like a gourmet machine that involves cooking food in sealed vacuumed pouches which are then submerged in a water bath. I like how throughout the ToTT store, they have those little video things going on that shows you how a particular item is used for. A pity that I can't really hear what the video was actually explaining though. Or was it only a visual demo that doesn't include audio? Anyway, additional details about the SousVide Supreme can be found here.
Dream kitchen necessity - a Kitchen Aid!
I want a Kitchen Aid for my future kitchen. Perhaps one in black, or cream, or the one above in fire engine red looks good too. If I can get a row of multi-coloured Kitchen Aids and line them all on the kitchen counter. That would be uber cool... ;)
The ToTT space is quite spacious, and it encompasses more than my pictures tell. It has a small dining area, a children's play space, two cooking studios, a Bake &Go area and not forgetting, the kitchenware and industrial wares area. In my opinion, the items at ToTT are more suited to the industrial customer as they do sell a lot more stuff related to industrial needs. ToTT will appeal to the gourmet cooks as they will probably lust after a lot of the dreamy items they have in store. But I must say that I'm in love with their baking ware section as their selections are really very broad and I don't see some stuff there in other baking shops in Singapore. Now if only I had an industrial sized oven lying around at home...
ToTT is located at:
896 Dunearn Road, #01-01A Sime Darby Building
Telephone: 219 7077
Curious about how the cooking studio at ToTT looks like? I attended a cooking class a month ago, more on that in my next post!
