Tiong Bahru Bakery is know to be popular for one thing –
their rather huge,flaky and freshly-baked croissants.
I don’t think I’ve tasted any croissants quite like this before even when I was in France. It seems like French baker Gontran Cherrier has it all when it comes to les Pains.
For $3.70, you can either get a chocolate medium-sized croissant here or a bowl of fishball noodles from the local food centres.
Singaporeans must be really happy about the man who brought Paris to the Yeast – oops, I mean east.
The squid ink burger with salmon and ham is another hot selling item – not because it looks simply out of the norm but the soft squid ink bread is undeniably appetizing.
From savoury to sweet, you can have pastries for breakfast,lunch and even your dinner here. Flour,yeast and eggs are pretty much about everything in the French food culture. Thank goodness, I’m a bread-lover.
