Lifestyle: The Providore

The Providore Interior

With its unassuming location at the Tan Boon Liat Building along Outram Road, you might be forgiven for overlooking this little gem — The Providore — that has recently been making waves in the local food scene with its tasteful selection of gourmet and artisan foods. Taking a cue from its namesake, The Providore takes pride in providing consumers with wholesome good foods that not only look good and taste good, but also celebrate the joy of eating well.

“The pleasure of discovering, creating and sharing good food was what inspired us to develop The Providore brand.” Bruce Chapman, managing director of The Providore shared passionately. “Here at The Providore, we don’t just love food. We adore food.”

The self-respecting food connoisseur or those with a penchant for the finer things in life will definitely appreciate what you can find at The Providore. If you have no idea where to start, Bruce highly recommends the jams and marmalades that are lovingly made from seasonal fruit in Yarra Valley, Australia. To preserve the natural flavour of the fruits, the jams and marmalades are only produced in small batches each time.

Another highlight would be the organic biscuits from Marchesi Di San Giuliano, which are exclusive to The Providore in Singapore. Staying true to its roots, these handmade organic biscuits draw their flavours from citrus fruits and nuts that grow either on the family estate, or in the surrounding areas of Sicily, Italy.

Good news for the foodie couples out there — The Providore is already working towards offering catering services moving forward, which means that including these good foods in your wedding line-up might no longer be a dream in the future! For now, you can still get your regular fix at the The Providore’s Tan Boon Liat warehouse store, or better, savour the many concoctions at their newly opened café restaurant at the Mandarin Gallery.

“Our chefs and bar staff have spent the past few months perfecting recipes that feature our products as well as fresh season items from the local marketplace. The result, we feel, is an interesting mix of food and beverages that is quite unique and something new to offer the Singapore dining scene.”
