Tiong Bahru Bakery

Happened to be around Tiong Bahru area and decided to check out what's the hype about. Given such a traditional name "Tiong Bahru Bakery", I was astounded when i stepped into the bakery as I swing the flipping doors opened.

It was a artisan bakery, as noisy as a market place and fully packed with people enjoying their breakfast on a Christmas morning.

I never thought that croissant with layers well defined in such ways. The folds were distinctively and neatly done with layers stacking. Its looked dry unlike the glossy and fraglie looking croissant we had but seemed more sturdy and "unbreakable" to me. The crossiant was crisp and aromatic, fill with butter fragrance but not oily at all. Its flakiness had been in a control manner such that every bite would not had them drop off too much.

Croissant- $3.20


Another scene stealer, Kouign Amann Choco, which is a breton cake. It is a round crusty cake made up of bread dough with layers of butter and sugar folded in. The added choco had made this pastry more sinful than ever however its worth the calories.

Vanilla Millefeuille which is made up of 3 layers of puff pastries, alternating with 2 layers of cream. A perfect combination which blends the roughness of crisp and smooth cream layers well as we sink our teeth down.

Vanilla Millefeuille - $8

Not forgetting its Berries Crumble, which was decent as well. If you dislike the taste of apple pies or tarts, this is probably not for you. The blended mixed berries were a combination of sour and sweet topped with the crisp crumble.

Berries Crumble - $6.80

The serving was generous, remember to share.

The pastries had hit me on the right spot, if I had knew it was an artisan cafe instead of the traditional old school bakery, I would definitely have my breakfast here. Nevertheless, let's plan for the next trip! I will be back for more flour!
