Tonight I am around in Raffles City Shopping Centre to do some shopping. While checking Facebook, I come across a promotion of free Canele with every purchase of foccacia in Tiong Bahru Bakery by Gontran Cherrier. So I decide to visit the bakery to enjoy the promotion.Ham & Mozzarella Foccacia ($9.50)Although the staff has heated up the bread, I could not feel any warm in it. The bread is huge in serving. The cheesy foccacia with thin slices of salty ham, topped with rockets and juicy tomatoes. A well balanced combination. However the dish is letdown by the rather blunt knife which I have problem slicing through the bread. In the end, I decide to ask the staff to pack the bread for takeaway.CaneleA canelé is a small French pastry with a soft and tender custard center and a dark, thick caramelized crust. It tastes like a caramel brulée inside. Sweet and creamy.Great Detox ($7)It is made of orange, carrot and ginger. It is served in a glass jar. It tastes of orange with a ginger aftertaste.Overall the food is not bad. Service is not bad too. Great place to enjoy a relaxing dinner by the fountain. continue reading

Tiong Bahru Bakery, as the name implies, began its flagship branch at Tiong Bahru, Eng Hoon Street. Today, I visited its second outlet at 252 North Bridge Road #B1-11 / 12 Raffles City Shopping Centre, Singapore 179103 and the number to dial is 6333 4160.Actually it is really easy to spot, this outlet. The simply furnished bakery cafe with its clean-cut pale tones and brick walls is situated around the fountain at the basement of Raffles City Shopping Centre, and occupies a long expanse of space. I was expecting this casual, relaxing cafe to be crowded since I was there around lunch time, and have heard that it is extremely popular. Surprisingly, there were plenty of seats.It was my first visit there, and I was awed at the display of pastries, wondering what to have. Everything looked delectable - look at the gigantic buns and croissants! All of them look so fresh and inviting, it was a dilemma making up my mind.Eventually, I settled for the much-raved about Squid Ink Bun, the black beauty amongst a sea of whites. The bun was sweet, fluffy, flakey and fresh. Clapsed between the buns are vegetables - crispy and sweet in its refreshingness; the thin slice of parma ham added a delicious salty overture in tune with the smoked salmon flanked across the expanse of the vegetables within. The entire combination was just mouthful after mouthful of delicacy.I washed down the delightful bun with a cup of Cappuccino - a little disappointed that this is rather bland and lacks the aroma of good coffee. No doubt, it was still a steaming cup of beauty that made for a satisfactory accompaniment to my food. I was hoping to be able to wolf down a dessert item but I could not, sadly.For more detailed information and photos, do visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/03/tea-break-at-tiong-babru-bakery.html continue reading

Tjis is a good place to have light breakfast or afternoon tea. I went in the afternoon to have tea. It sells pastry, sandwich, burgers and various types of tea and coffee. I ordered the pastry which is one of the famous one think it is called cinamon roll. It is very sweet and crispy. Very tasty , thumbs up. However the hot chocolate is not hot at all is is slightly less than Luke warm although it has very nice coffee art on it. I find that it is too pricey , cost $6+ total spent $10 next round i think I will order the pastry but ask for plain water  continue reading

I paid my visit on a weekday late afternoon 16.01.2014. The place is conveniently located at the marketplace basement of raffles city shopping mall.The bakery is famous of croissant which I found quite mediocre but kouign amann is worth to try. The rest are normal fare.Well mentioned, the pumpkin soup came with two big prawn was quite good but portion was too small despite of the price. Nevertheless, the branch in raffles city basement marketplace is a convenient location for those who need a tea break or short meet up. continue reading

Unlike its name and logo, Tiong Bahru Bakery serves croissants and other French pastries and breads. I decided to get their Mini Croissant ($1.80) and Mini Chocolate Croissant ($2.20).Their croissants are very flaky and not of the soft variety. The buttery taste is not very strong either. The chocolate croissant actually tastes like the original flavour croissant and only differentiates itself by its appearance and the thin layer of chocolate at the middle of the pastry. The chocolate is really strong and a little bitter. It did not taste like it is made with cheap chocolate.Not too bad and I may return to try their other pastries and of course their coffee. continue reading
