A hive of expat activity, this place is packed on food-related holidays like Thanksgiving and Easter. Fight your way through the masses of soccer mums and screaming children to the decent fresh produce and cheese selection. On your way out, pick up a crusty loaf at the boulangerie next door.
The item prices are much higher compared to their sister company Cold Storage. I have enquired about this before and they replied that Tanglin Market Place is an upscale supermart and should not be compared to the regular supermart, even if the item is the same. Apparently the expats shopping there are just waiting to be fleeced.

Brownie said: “Poor decaying food at Tanglin Market Place”
I just spent $127 on groceries at Tanglin Market Place to discover that the so called 'fresh bread' I bought there is COVERED in a nasty green mold. Its not the first time I have bought food there that is off. They don't label foods with sell buy dates and you NEVER see staff removing old food off the shelves. Its a disgrace that shops like these can can charge as much as 50% above normal food retail and not be obliged by law to operate sell-buy dates on all produce, and remove old food from its shelves. What a greedy negligent store.
