Handmade pastry is available in every part of Singapore. Most of them has their own characteristics and some of them only try to copy cat each other. If you ask me my place-to-go for excellent croissant and dessert, Tiong Bahru Bakery would be on top of the list.
Having 3 outlet across Singapore, Tiong Bahru Bakery has redefined the industry expectations with their product. This one is located at the original place of Tiong Bahru Bakery (Eng Hon Street). Minimalist interior design fused by the smell of fresh pastry from the oven absolutely create a wonderful atmosphere for you to chill and relax. No wonder many people could spend more time here.
Actually they have a lot variant of pastry and dessert to be tasted, let me help you to do the screening part in order to find the right one.
Matcha Almond Croissant (S$ 3.80) and the original Almond Croissant (S$ 3.80) definitely must try. The croissant is pretty flacky and crispy on the outside, while it remains warm and buttery on the inside. Especially the almond topping is pretty fresh and natural, would lifting up the whole texture of it. Also, please do consider the matcha filling on the inside. Probably some of you are avoiding matcha or green tea, but believe me by trying the Matcha Almond Croissant, it would transform your doubt into smile. Beyond delicious and sweet!
Meanwhile, their Lemon Tart (S$ 5.90) is pretty match to be paired with coffee. It will balanced everything. Then, several variant of Kouign Aman (S$ 3.50) along with the original one is better here compared to the other contenders. It is dense, sweet, and fresh. The other version of Cinnamon Roll in the thick way.
In contrast, for the savoury side you need to pay attention more for Specialty Bun Salmon and Ham (S$ 8.50) and Quiche Lorraine (S$ 6.50). The sandwich is airy and the toppings is fresh and tasty. The way they combined it is a smart idea. For the Quiche, it could be taste salt and delicious. I do concern about the texture of it, it has a right level of thickness that makes you feel comfortable to munch it on the single bites of it.
Hot Latte (S$ 5.50) is pretty general and the one that they served here is comes from Common Man Coffee Roasters that specialized in coffee beans and brewing method. The right composition between milk and espresso has entertain me for a while. It is pretty strong and nailed my standard about good quality coffee.
Tiong Bahru Bakery has the most beautiful Croissant and high standard Latte. Singaporean should be proud of this.
