Pantler is a newly opened cake shop in CBD area, locate on Telok Ayer Street. It is opened by two pastry chefs who used to work at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo and Joel Robuchon Singapore.The interior decoration is very simple but comfortable.Cannot decide which one to have when so many choices come to my eyes, all of them looks so delicious. I wish my stomach is big enough to have all of them.Classic Mont Blanc ($8.5), which is my all-time favorite, with very lovely looking.The chestnut cream is smoot
The chestnut cream is smooth and creamy, and not over-sweetened as i tried in some other places. The cream inside was also very delight. The best part of the piece is actually the blueberry cake base, which brought a touch of sourness to balance the whole piece.
The spongecake was very light and fluffy, but still cannot beat over Flor’s. The whipped cream was melting and light, and the sourness of the strawberry jam perfectly balanced out.
Pantler is a really lovely place to go for a sweet-hunting. All the cakes looks very delicious and i believe that they taste as good as they looks, at least my Mont Blanc experience here was fantastic. While i think the cakes here are little bit overprice compare to other cake shops, because the size is quite smaller than other shops. But trust me, it really worth to go because the quality is quite high as well. Will be back and try more!

Situated doors away from My Awesome Cafe is Pantler, a new patisserie that had just recently opened to much hype along Telok Ayer Street in the Central Business District. Largely focusing on cakes, pastries and savouries such as Danishes, it is not just about desserts here; Pantler has also a couple of bakes meant to satisfy the lunch crowd whom may be looking for a light bite. I was actually spoilt for choice there because everything looked so good!I was being recommended the Peppered Tuna Cube

I was being recommended the Peppered Tuna Cube which was fresh out-of-the-oven, but decided to go against it after noticing those cut skin-on potatoes on the Potato Cheese Danish ($3.00). Admittedly it was good, but being left on display in the open marred this pastry a little; the Danish became a wee bit limp and dry losing its original buttery, fluffy touch while the melted cheese was a bit stiff. Potatoes were really fresh, but I personally thought it would be really delicious if it was served hot out-of-the-oven.
Choux Creme ($5.50) was also recommended. I was expecting a puff pastry that was slightly salty, but it came with yet another surprise. This one felt a bit similar to Christmas ladyfingers in both taste and texture, and generously loaded with fresh and smooth Vanilla custard cream. This is one luxurious dessert that ladies would definitely be fond with.
If you had seen Pantler’s Facebook page or Instagram, you would have found these Pate de Fruits ($3.50 for 3) familiar. These are flavoured fruit jellies; think of those you get in the supermarket in packs but way fresher because they are made in-house. They come in a variety of flavours, and comes in bundles of threes. I picked the Pineapple, Peach and Passionfruit and Blackcurrant flavours. Found the Peach & Passionfruit flavour rather unique; the subtle sweetness of peach and tartness of Passionfruit fused together seemed like a exquisite combination, while the Blackcurrant was pretty decent for sweet-tooths. Texture-wise, the jellies are a bit more solid than expected; maybe slightly firmer compared to a grape so do not expect these to be chewy. Despite that, it is definitely worth the try!
Apparently I realized I missed trying their cakes, so I added a Matcha Azuki Pound Cake ($3) for takeaway as well. Unlike what I was expecting, this was surprisingly moist, but of the right density. It focused more on the Pound Cake; being more buttery with a light touch of matcha rather than being overwhelmingly bitter. Azuki brought in that earthy flavour at the bottom; pretty classy as well. For non-green tea fans, there are also several flavours to choose from, so you could perhaps find one that you fancy!
