The new bakes by Executive Pastry Chef Alex Chong at “Dolcetto by Basilico” are very, very good and definitely worth the calories!
For mocha lovers, the Cornetto Doppio Chocolate ($6) is sure to please as his rendition of the Italian equivalent of the French croissant is a delight of double chocolate with strong espresso.
Although seemingly basic next to the others, the Italian Croissant ($5) was a fragrant, crisp yet not overly flaky marvel as it’s made using Beppino Occelli butter (a traditionally dairy farmed butter), skimmed and fresh cream. I found it delicious on its own but spread with the accompanying whipped vanilla butter and housemade strawberry jam, managed to blossom further.
The Tortino in Sfoglia ($5) which means “thin leaf” in Italian, is the bake that resembles stacked leaves. Woven into a handy muffin shape, it’s filled with an espresso ganache and coated in Amalfi lemon-scented sugar. I enjoyed this uncommon flavour combination immensely too.

Highly recommend you give them all a try the first time round, so you can suss out your preferences. Do have a look at the link-in-bio at @regentsingapore’s Instagram account to order.

“Tortino in Sfoglia” means “thin leaf” in Italian, a name earned from its resemblance to stacked leaves. Woven into a handy muffin shape, this bake is filled with an espresso ganache and coated in Amalfi lemon-scented sugar. I enjoyed this rather uncommon flavour combination immensely.

For years I’ve been a fan of the wonderful fresh bakes by “Dolcetto by Basilico”, so I was thrilled when @maria_hannah emailed me to say she was sending over a box of their newest pastries. By the looks of it, Executive Pastry Chef @_alex_chong of the @regentsingapore has clearly been busy because there were four different items in all and each was truly impressive; more so when you take into consideration their affordable price points.
What completely blew my socks off was the La Sfogliata Al Caramello ($18). Three days is how long it takes to make this large, round creation with its 81 layers of buttery #pastry dough. A time-consuming task no doubt but that’s how its ethereal lightness is achieved. With a hidden heart and dollops of salted caramel milk chocolate ganache, plus a crown of toasted hazelnuts, this is an outrageously good bake you should not miss.

Golden crisp Porchetta Romana stuffed with Plums and Glazed Heirloom Baby Carrots, the ingredients combined together in a vibrant chorus.

Probably the only buffet known of their wide array of cheeses 🧀 - blu di langa, pecorino Nero do pienza, taleggio DOP, ubriaco alla birra, pecorino stagionato nel fieno, puzzone di moena, piave mezzano with tons of condiments and none other than the magnificent grana padano!

Wanted to skip crappy carbs to make space for the pizzas and pastas but the bread was irresistible, especially the angelo’s squid ink bread and the mushroom & truffle bread. (Both available for sale at dolcetto at $10 & $11 respectively per loaf)

Glad I had the space to try the pastas. They have the following - taglioloni with seabass ragout, penne in tomato & pesto, Wagyu beef lagsane & conchiglioni with pork ragout. Specially enjoyed the taglioloni with seabass ragout and the penne! Very comforting, hearty and flavorful. They also had carving stations serving roasted turkey, lamb as well as chicken. For the roast meats, I really enjoyed the uncommon mustards like the chili mustard as well as the herb mustard.

Moving on to the deserts, ice cream selection was pretty decent - nougat, chocolate, berries sorbet, green apple sorbet, peach sorbet and good old vanilla (with vanilla pods, damn legit!). The usual suspects were also spotted- tiramisu, panna cotta, bread & butter pudding, apple crumble. Some items I particularly enjoyed were the pecan tart, pistachio choux, lemon & raspberry cake.

Overall, good value and selection for a buffet. Especially even more so if you love cheese! 😊

I also really enjoyed this burnt caramel hazelnut mousse cake. Surprisingly, it’s not too sweet and there’s a surprise crunchy cookie layer in between that tastes exactly like a ferrero rocher. So tasty and there’s also hazelnuts on top! Their desserts are quite big slices though, so take them to share if you wanna try more so that you can minimise food wastage!
