Well, in this case, it is more like “If the mountain tortoise will not come to much-hyped-about bakery, then much-hyped-about bakery must go to mountain tortoise.”
Mum and sister got a box of pastries from the new Tiong Bahru Bakery outlet at Raffles City (www.tiongbahrubakery.com/) and passed us some on one of their daily baby visits.
More than eight hours later and after a two-minute revive in the toaster, lo and behold, a sugary buzz to kickstart Friday or heck, the impending long weekend.
On the left, we have the famed kouign amann. My my my, it was very scrumptious in a lick-my-plate-clean kind of way. If it tastes this good after the day after, I can imagine how awesome it must be fresh out of the oven.
The plain croissant bears a buttery fragrance that lingers well after the pastry is settled in your system. It was a tad doughier than your usual croissant, almost like a pillowy sweet bread that the Japanese are so fond of. In other words, one might not be enough.
Definitely won't be hard to polish off the remaining chocolate croissant for tea today =)
