My love for bread knows no boundaries (I think)

While searching for what to have around Bukit Timah, Tastemaker Victoria’s vote of approval on the flavoured scones here immediately lured me to try them out. I started with 1 red wine fig scone and a raspberry sugared brioche before concluding I needed to try the other 2 flavours of scones (earl grey, rum & raisins) while having a savoury item to “balance” things.
The spinach cheese loaf at Crown had a nice taste of Popeye’s favourite food at every bite; unadulterated use of the leafy green superfood I must say. This within the soft white bread which also had nuggets of soft cheese; and melted cheese atop. By no mean was this cheap but well worth the price with the quality.

A good brioche with fresh raspberries; this was like a much denser version of comfortingly soft white bread.
The scones might look small but reflected what you’d get in a true English tea set; a nimble sets you up for so much baked, and in this case flavored, goodness.

That moment when you use portrait and the auto focus makes a mistake on what was the highlight of the meal. The ham and cheese I got was decent with supermarket bought ham; but what I’d order again was the shadowing cinnamon brick, essentially a well done Danish pastry that had an absolutely delightfully sweet crisp shell. Simple but very memorable.

Concurrently I am mighty pleased that PB has reopened at Bugis! Yippeeee and congratulations PB

Not the dense kind with clearly articulated layers (like the ones I love at TBB) but airy and buttery are the croissants you get at PB

I love you even when you turned cold all because of my oversight (leaving you to sit on the plate for way too Long); how the combination of mushrooms melted in cheese with a spread of mayo-like cream under was at all the right places and primarily on a bed of faultless focaccia bread base.

Great kaya butter toast - with 2 thick slabs of butter that were at race to how quickly you devour the delicious toast vis a vis them melting completely. So much joy to eat 😋

Long sentence ahead:
In this obscure part of the island (but just 10 minutes away from my place) is this bakery that sells amazing loaves of Chinese-like white bread in the shape of a fat baguette that is enough to feed 3 mouths yet only cost $1.90.
Best eaten on the day it’s bought this is so good that it has gained a spot on my family’s dinner table as carbs for our easy sandwich meals.

A coincidence (?) that I happen to have a similar dish 2 days in a row at different places; calling for inevitable comparisons.

Part I: French Toast

Although this French Toast comes at >2x vis a vis my compared experience; I’d choose it over and over again. I mean that 2 thick and dense artisan brioche with complementing condiments just won me over at first bite.

Also coffee here is great and this is really not because my Cousin is the barista here 😬 full disclosure 👌🏻

Cheap thrills that please me; the amount of butter in these makes me happy. Happy that I’d make special detours to this Si Mei outlet and actually googled all the baker talent locations in Singapore

My parents were baffled when only a slice of good sourdough bread was served with too much also good curry butter spread to go around again, 1 slice of bread 😂
We also had the in-house baked strawberry frangipanni tart, 2 burgers (smoked salmon and beef) with great outsourced brioche.
I was happy I had burpplebeyond because paying $17 for that smoked salmon burger felt like a stretch. On a return visit I’d just try the basic scrambled eggs and toast that people have raved about; and taste the coffee which I skipped because I had a cup prior to my meal.

Croissant at an almost break the bank price- but thankfully it had good layers, enough butter and flavour.
Yet what I was really here for was their cheesecake which I read was one of the best in Singapore. I’d only sadly learnt there is no per slice version but the cafe takes whole cake order instead. We settled for the cheese tart that had quite a good cheese filling but the crumbly and dry biscuit tart base was way too tastelessly health conscious for our liking.
The best thing had to be the yakiniku mushroom sandwich that was quite memorable; the black pepper sauce that so prominently coats the meat-like mushroom chunks worked like a charm in between perfectly baked sesame sandwich bread. This goes into the category of “making vegetarian food a hearty affair.”

Got these at a $1 promotion the bakery was having; that said I wouldn’t mind parting with $1.50 for these floss buns. Why? Mainly because of the pleasantly tangy and sweet mayonnaise they dress the soft white bread with to hold the floss together.

Eat to live, live to eat. Alternating between the 2 all day err day?
