Getting used to this cycle of treat yourself takeouts on PH/ the weekends with the nation’s back and forth drift into and out of Phase 2 Heightened Alert.

Choosing to be grateful for excellent bakeries like Bakery Brera that churn amazing bakes 6 days a week to feed souls like mine; and they do good in the process too (check out ST article: Help pours in for siblings with rare disorder (11 Jul 21).

While I savoured the layers the variety of croissants and cruffins; forked into the decadent scone and basque cheesecake (with a hint of alcohol) - they definitely felt like pleasures of life.

Nestled in Empress mall, this is one bakery you wouldn’t realise was there and would have walked past easily!

Bought the Lemon curd cruffin, Ferrero Rocher Cruffin, Salted caramel cruffin and PB&J cruffin. Absolutely love the texture of the cruffins, it wasn’t too dense and the flakiness was on point and upon reheating them prior to consumption, the fillings were pretty much like lava.

Lemon curd was a tad too sour to my liking and the salted caramel was less sweet than expected (more to the salty side). Ferrero Rocher and PB&J were my favourite!

Amazing pastries, friendly staff and a myriad of tantalising flavours and bakes to choose from. However, do come before 11am (WEEKDAY) so as to be able to peruse leisurely without needing to fear not being able to get what you want. Weekends, however, be ready to queue even at 8.30am 😂

Must get:
Cruffins ($5)— Any. See it. Grab it. Especially the salted caramel and lemon curd iterations. Decadent, creamy and a balanced flavour profile.

Croissant ($3.50; plain)— Don’t know what to get still? One can never go wrong with this simple, amazingly flakey and buttery goodness.

BKA [Brera Kouign Amann] ($6)— What’s better than a croissant? One that’s encased in a layer of caramelised sugar that provides flavour profiles of toffee and burnt-bittersweet. Crunchy, sinful, decadent. Amazing. Inspired by the amazing Dominique Ansel.

I do enjoy the Pain Au Chocolat here, where the pastry breaks into a thousand buttery shards with each bite, showering the plate (and the table) with its delicious crumbs. Despite the mess, I'd eat this over and over again.

The Kouig-Amann I tried this time round seemed to fall short of my expectations though, seemingly faring better the first time round I got it. Is it me or does certain food tastes better in memories? 🤔

Weekend Special

Cheese Pretzel (S$4.20)

Taro Mochi Double-Baked Croissant (S$7.80)
Love the chunk of Mochi but kind of too sweet.

Grabbed the Taro Mochi double-baked croissant, a weekend special. Think a slightly dense croissant packed fully with an earthy yam purée, which reminded me of Orh nee. Slicing it revealed the cubes of sticky mochi, good to have but I have never been a fan of mochi. What was great was its moderate sweetness, although could have been more buttery.
