Pit Stop at Tiong Bahru Bakery, Raffles City
A puckery lemon tart is pure delight. This lemon tart had a short buttery base akin to the texture of a cookie (yasss!). While I thought the curd could have more "moltenous," I loved the tanginess of level 2 and wouldn't mind trying level 3 the next time round.
I have a soft weak-in-the-knees spot for their kouign amann. It's really the only must-have for me at Tiong Bahru Bakery. I haven't had the guts to do so, but I dare sayI can finish up one on my own in one sitting. Caramelised buttery puff pastry - it's hard to beat that, my friend. I got the apple kouign amann (to prove I am capable of change); the apple bits were pleasant, a short distraction from the aching sweetness of this delightful party.
