Local Breads And Artisan Breads

I crave for good artisan sourdough breads but the Singaporean in me loves a Soft pillowy red bean bun fresh from the oven anytime of the day.

So Glad that there are finally new items on provence ‘s bread shelves .

I have been there 10000 times and the “ wow “ factor was starting to diminish .

Absolutely love the cheese onion bun - crusty on the outside and incredibly chewy on the inside.

Don’t ask for the buns to be warmed up because they use the microwave which doesn’t work for breads.

If you like your breads warm , I suggest you bring them home to warm up yourself .

Still my favourite soft buns in town .

Made in house , fresh daily .

A little disappointed with the weak flat white.
Diluted and thin .

Pecan and cranberry bread was ordinary although cited as the shop’s signature bread .

Go for their pastries like the croissant 🥐 instead and skip the coffee .

For those of you who enjoy these flat breads,
They are now available at a more accessible location at People’s Park Complex .

Not sure why the brand name is Wen jia bao but they are using the xiao Yang Guo Kui bag .

The lady who collects cash also makes the pastry - so eat at your own risk 😱

These to me , are the best tasting and best looking croissants in singapore.

Handmade, fresh, made in limited quantities daily with quality butter .

27 perfect layers .

You are either from the TBB gang or you are not ..... 😝

And so I am not .

Perfectly poached eggs, perfectly crisped Smokey bacon , perfect sourdough toast.

Perfect brunch .

( sorry for the leg in the background - not part of the menu 😂... )

While most are attracted by The GSS, nothing attracts me more than one of my favourite cafes advertisement of their chocolate feast 😊

And thank God ! I got the last chocolate-orange bagel for the day - in time for brunch. Accompanied with a smooth hot chocolate , it was a very gratifying brunch.

For those of you whom haven’t had time to go take a whiff of the famous Wu pao Chun bakery -
This photo is for you .

I have been watching this bread but my wallet refuses to pay 20 dollars for this.

Window 🛍 shopping.

Bread lovers alert 🚨

I call these my green babies 👶 because they look so “poofy “ - my term for spongy and puffy 🥳. Every time I was pass them , I can’t help but feel like giving them a good squeeze 😬.

Intrigued by what sweet potato leaves taste like in a bread - that was the beginning of my experience with this bread.

Weird but this bread actually tastes like a matcha red bean and can easily pass off as one. The sweet potato flavour has this earthy and green flavour like a palate cleanser while the red bean provides a luxurious creaminess and imparts some “ sinfulness” to the otherwise pretty heathy bread .

Unlike other varieties of swee Heng’s bread , this bread as well as the similarly shaped taro 5 grain bread as well as the sweet potato bread have a spongy and more chewy texture - possibly from a higher quality Japanese flour used .

My first encounter with this red bean bread was the best because the red bean was less sweet with a more pronounced red bean flavour . These days , the red bean twirled into the bread is somewhat sweeter 🥴.

Nevertheless - these are still yummy and I urge you to try one soon 😋 especially when they are warm and fresh . Available only at selected swee Heng outlets .

No - I didn’t have the heart 💓 to pay for this -

Fortunately there were some samples that came out of the oven while I visited the shop.

Nice lychee fragrance but part of the bread was a little too densed - not sure whether it was too moist because it was still warm or had the bread not risen properly 😱

20 dollars is just ( a sin ) too much to pay 🥵.

Out of all the sea salt butter breads I have tried - I still like the ones from so good bakery .

A nice slight crusty exterior and a very soft and airy interior. It has an interesting hollow interior - just nice for customising your own condiments 😊 to pair with your bread .

Stuff some poached eggs and mashed avocado 🥑 inside and ... it’s like heaven .

When I run of ideas for lunch and just need a familiar place to rest my legs - Provence bakery never fails .

There’s something magical about their pain de mie used for their sandwiches .

When toasted , they are not only crusty but slightly chewy. The bread is the star here so whatever goes in between really doesn’t matter much.

I used to like going to a Japanese eatery which doubled up as a comic book store along a cosy corner of Robertson quay , called bon gout . Walking in there is just like walking into a Japanese family cafe . The food served up is what a typical Japanese family would eat. Places are just like music - they have the capability to bring you back to a good memory or past experience and I really reminisce those days.

Bon gout is gone so the next best place that has survived with me through the years is Provence .

Served in a Little paper box with a fine cup of coffee , nothing much really to rave about but just
A familiar place to rest and have a simple meal .
