I’ve always wanted to spend a lazy weekday afternoon at Tiong Bahru Bakery and the opportunity finally came when I decided to drop by Raffles City.

The Lemon Tart ($6) though seemingly small and overpriced surprised me with it’s rich lemon filling. The centre contains a refreshingly tangy lemon curd that goes well with the soft graham crust. Coffee served here is strong and I definitely got my caffeine fix from the a their nice cup of Flat White ($5.50). I wonder when will I get another chance to while my time away on a quiet, crowd free weekday afternoon.

I did not have the luxury of time to sit down at Tiong Bahru Bakery at Raffles City for tea, so i da bao their raisin bun or more likely raisin croissant. their raisin croissant is very large in size. there were really a lot of plump and juicy raisins in the croissant. the croissant was very crispy and fragrant. it goes really well with the raisin. i thought it made a very filling and delicious afternoon tea time snack.

My first time at this new tiong bahru bakery outlet at raffles city shopping center. This outlet is quite abit larger and more spacious than the original flagship outlet at tiong bahru, although food offerings are pretty much the same. Pastries are generally all of a high standard, especially the raved about croissants which have always been consistently good. The croissants especially the raisin one are buttery and rich, flaky on the outside soft on the inside. Combined with the sweet contrast

Too many choices, don’t know what to get. The samples available on the counter is soft and tasty. Orders some for takeaway. Nicely packed in a paper bag, sealed with a paper handle which is easily torn off.Croissant Almonds ($3.50) : The standard of the croissant is a class of its own. Cannot compare.Kouign Aman ($3.50) : Crispy and sweet on the outside, but soft and chewy inside.Praline Pear Tart ($6.00) : soft and nice is the pear.

It was my first time at Tiong Bahru Bakery. I always saw there is a long queue during the weekends so I reckoned that it is quite popular. I went in during one of the weekday and decided to have a light dinner there. I ordered a croissant which cost $3.20 and a Cappuccino that cost about $6.00. The croissant was really delious.

It was my first time at Tiong Bahru Bakery. I always saw there is a long queue during the weekends so I reckoned that it is quite popular. I went in during one of the weekday and decided to have a light dinner there. I ordered a croissant which cost $3.20 and a Cappuccino that cost about $6.00. The croissant was really delious. One of the best croissants that I have ate in Singapore so far. Somehow this bakery is in collaboration with Gontran Cherrier, a celebrity baker from Paris. Hence there is a certain level of standard for all their pastries. There are a wide variety of pastries to choose from, from baguette to sandwiches and tarts. Would love to try them all and would definitely go back again.

Craving for some salmon? Well, Tiong Bahru bakery was offering this very unique charcoal bun with rocket salad and smoked salmon! the charcoal bun didn't taste anything like charcoal except it was black and more fragrant, a little harder than your usual muffin. i thought it was very nice of them to use rocket vegetable rather than the usual lettuce, and the smoked salmon was extremely delicious! They had a sufficient number of pieces to go around, you just have to try this ! the restaurant was a

The signature croissant (eaten up before any photos could be taken) lived up to my expectation partly because I had reheated it in my oven till the crispness I want. But I doubt it will be the same eating in the shop unless they are straight out the oven.
However, I think their Almond croissant with Chocolate filling (left) and Kouig Aman (right) are equally competent , if not better than its croissant if you prefer something sweet.
Both flaky and fragrant, the almond croissant was heavenly while the latter, despite its ugly appearance, was swirled with salted caramel remains my personal favourite.
If you don't like chocolate, do try the Plain Almond Croissant. It was consumed at room temperature but remained crispy.
However, some of the pastries left me in a blur. The Raisin Roll (right) was average while the Pandan Flan (Bottom Left) lacked any distinct pandan aroma or flavour and the pastry was soggy. Meanwhile, The Rapsberry Crumble (Top Left) was underbaked resulting in a slightly chewy lacklustre pastry and the crumble toppings were too little.

Just as I thought there would be no new items anymore, it's Christmas specials- A Chocolate Snowball Globe tart took me by surprise. Filled with sweet milk chocolate mousse and the tangy pineapple and passionfruit compote, the chocolate ball sat on a crumbly almond tart whose sweetness was just right.
At the centre sits a mini delicate red balloon of salty raspberry sauce which burst open at the poke of a fork. This is not something new but still very interesting to have in local bakeries.

Galette De Rois or King's Cake: a traditional puff pastry filled with almond paste. The lucky one will find a king miniature and be blessed for the year ahead. Many places sell this as a whole pastry but I was glad they had it in individual serving size as well.

After trying their range of croissants, I do think that it is very close to my No.1 Croissant- the Echire Croissant in Tokyo Marunouchi and is able to satisfy my cravings for the simple yet often overlooked pastry.

Their bread and pastry were nice and they also offered nice jam like banana apple coffee jam. Their signature plain croissant is a must try!

I was happy that they opened a branch at Raffles City which was very convenient as in town. As the last time I tasted their blueberry crumble, and this time round I shall try their in house signature pastry, the lemon tart. It was indeed very very lemonly(sour) and the pastry base was hardy yet easy to bite off and the taste was nice. The only setback was the lemon filling melted when I came home and not realized it was better to keep it in the fridge.
