Am a fan of the kouign amann since the bakery arrived on our shores. Decided to try the new coconut gula melaka kouign amann but was a tad disappointed because it tasted so much like the original one. Should add more gula melaka taste to it! Hot chocolate was well done though continue reading

Full review on herpenandfork.blogspot.comThe outlet here, unlike its other two in the city, is really a full-fledged cafe with ample seating and brown-hued interiors. The setting is pretty relaxed in feel, making it pretty ideal for a nice chat over coffee. It was about 75% packed on the Friday afternoon we visited and remained so for the entire duration we stayed. There are no all-day brunch or the usual meal mains, but the substantial sandwiches and pastries more than makes up for it.MochaThis coffee owes its origin to beans from 40 Hands. With that, you know it definitely won't be anywhere near bad. The mocha here is for those who like their mocha with less of the chocolate flavour and more of the coffee. I like it the other way round, so this was just alright for me.Mocha ($5.50)Bacon and Mushroom PaniniBacon and Mushroom Panini ($9.90)This was part of the lunch set on promotion. For $9.90, you get a choice between Bacon and Mushroom Curry or the Salmon and Cream Cheese Panini, accompanied by a side salad. Since I was indifferent and my friend a bacon lover, we got the former. The panini was slightly doughy in texture, like a thicker kind of flatbread. It was a little unusual for a sandwich bread. While my friend found it very weird, it didn't affect the taste much for me. There was nary any curry to the filling, and it was just alright, not fantastic. The accompanying salad with generous flakes of cheese (parmesan?) was good.Gula Melaka Kouign AmannGula Melaka and Coconut Kouign Amann ($4.50)Its awkward-to-pronounce name (Queen-ah-mann) aside, I have a soft spot for the original Kouign Amann. It is up there on my list of penultimate favourite pastries, so this trip was made in mind to try out the newly-launched version with a 'local' twist - Gula Melaka Kouign Amann. The Gula Melaka, though present, wasn't very apparent. Still, this was excellent because it is just like their original. Same crispy, caramelised edges, with soft and buttery textured layers within. Not sure if I would pay the extra dollar for the Gula Melaka and Coconut again, but the Kouign Amann? Anytime.Bottom-line: No harm trying for the twist, but the original will do otherwise.Apple CrumbleApple Crumble ($6)The most popular of their crumbles, according to the staff. This was crumbly in every mouthful, and the layer with the apple was sweet to a right note, I am not a crumble person, so I couldn't tell, but judging from its popularity and my alright-ness with it, this is probably a good choice if you love crumbles. They do have other flavours too like pear crumble and. The portion is huge and enough for 4 to share as a dessert. We were 3/4 full before this and couldn't finish it between the 2 of us.CroissantThis was had on another separate weekday morning at the Tiong Bahru Bakery Outlet at Tangs. It is pretty therapeutic to sit in the store and watch the day bustle for that 20 minutes while having your pastry. You can help yourself to the marmalade, butter and complimentary water at the side too.Croissant ($2.90)The croissant was crispy outside and the twisted layers gave way to an inside that was a nice balance between substantive and light. I like that it wasn't greasy too.There are a few more pastries I want to try (like the pretty raved-about Lemon Tart). It will take me a few more trips before I can cover it all, Prices are about on par with most artisan cafe-bakeries. As far as it goes, I would give my nod for its pastries. continue reading

Recently Tiong Bahru Bakery has organized a contest online in Facebook. And I am lucky to be one of the 10 winners with a prize of the new trio Kouign Amann Gula Melaka. Happy with my win, I inform the staff about a week in advance through email about my collection date. The outlet is just walking distance from the Tiong Bahru Market with a cute huge push door. At the counter, I explain to the staff that I collecting the pastries as a Facebook winner, while showing her the email through my mobile phone. I have told that I will be collecting 3 pieces of pastries free but she is firm that it is a 1 for 1 promotion. Meanwhile my mobile phone is passed from one staff to another. Finally there one staff who knows about the Facebook contest, served me. So 3 pieces of the new trio Kouign Amann Gula Melaka are been packed into paper bag to go. After this long confrontation with the staffs, I have lost my appetite to dine in there for breakfast. I do not think that I will be coming back to this outlet in the near future.Kouign Amann Gula Melaka ChocolateKouign Amann Gula Melaka CoconutKouign Amann Gula Melaka Crushed PeanutsAlthough each of the new flavoured Kouign Amann tastes great in their own ways, I still prefer the original Kouign Amann with its crispy and sweet caramelised texture. continue reading

Named for its first outlet located in Tiong Bahru, in the south of Singapore, Tiong Bahru Bakery is actually a French / France style artisan bakery, founded by master baker Gontran Cherrier, operating under the Spa Esprit Group. With a wide variety of freshly baked premium qualtiy breads and pastries, and a quirky combination of Western and Asian influences, Tiong Bahru Bakery has won rave reviews from diners.Ambience at Tiong Bahru Bakery pays homage to the Singapore Coffee Shop, with furniture resembling the wooden ones of old. A wide and bright display case lines half the store, displaying all the baked goodies available, while a coffee machine sits to the side, with its whooshing and whistling sounds.Service at Tiong Bahru Bakery is largely self-service. There is no menu to speak off, you simply browse the display, pick out the items you want, then pay at the cashier. On occasion, staff do serve your order to the table if a short preparation time is required (mostly for drinks). Still, I find staff at Tiong Bahru Bakery to be friendly and relatively knowledgeable about the breads and pastries available.While there are no main dishes at Tiong Bahru Bakery, this is made up by the over 50 breads and pastries, freshly baked daily, ranging from savoury to sweet to staples. There are usually a range of sandwiches or burgers available as well. Portions sizes at Tiong Bahru Bakery are decent, and for a premium artisan bakery, I find prices to be relatively competitive, similar to a typical cafe elsewhere.Said by many to be the best Croissant (SGD $2.90) in Singapore, this is light and buttery, with a crisp, flaky exterior. But as you get to the center, the Croissant gives way to a soft, chewy dough texture, making it a delight to eat. Even eaten plain, this is among the better ones!The Apple Raisin Brioche (SGD $4.20) has a soft, fragrant dough, surrounding a sweet center of warm apple slices, studded with raisins. Not too overly sweet, the freshness of the apples complemented the soft, sweet dough. Very good as a dessert!Get both Western style, and Singaporean style coffee here! The Mocha is rich and fragrant, with a deep chocolate flavour, while the Magic is best described as Kopi Gao (literally means 'Coffee Thick', which is a double shot coffee with condensed milk).Full Tiong Bahru Bakery review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/06/tiong-bahru-bakery.html continue reading
