The Atas pastry of Tiong Bahru...

Although they have been around for quite some time (like a few years), but I have not given them a try until recently. Therefore, after walking past the same place over and over again, I think that it's time for me to give them a good try. Hence...

For a start, this is a 'No-No'. First 'No', is for the way they are
presenting this. I was expecting a tea pot set rather than this. This
is a great disappointment. On top of that, the way they are packaging
the tea leaves is another big 'No'. It would be better if they have
provided a filter to separate out the tea leaves, otherwise if you are
a slow drinker, the first few cups will ended up to be far too thick
or yucky and the subsequent cups will ended up to be far too thin or
tasteless. Either ways, I personally find the free flow of water over
here to be a far more better choice than the tea.

'Almond Croissant'
Though it has the shape of a 'Croissant', but this is pretty ugly for
a 'Croissant'. Covered with a layer of icing sugar and a few slices of
almonds, the interior is unbelievably good. Despite of the ugly exterior,
the interior is both moist and delicious. And it comes with a nice almond
filling, which tends to explodes in my mouth when I took a bite off the
'Croissant'. The texture of the 'Croissant' is pretty good, but I think
that the amount of icing sugar that has been added is slightly a bit too
much, which makes it a bit too sweet.

'Kouign Amann'
This reminds me or a whirlpool, especially when there doesn't seems to be
a end to the curvy lines on top of the 'Kouign Amann'. I wonder if it can
really create a whirlpool inside my mouth. In fact, I almost mistake this
for a 'Cinnamon Pastry Roll'. :D After spending a bit of time examing this
I finally found the best way to savour this. By cutting along the curvy lines
would be the best way to take it apart. Coated with 'Caramel' and contains
an acceptable portion of 'Butter' and 'Sugar', makes the overall taste of this
crispy cake to be pretty delicious and at the same time not too sweet. :D
That's probably one of the reasons why everyone is ordering this that day.

So where can you give the nice pastries a good try?
Tucked in a small corner would be the...

'Tiong Bahru Bakery'.
Anyway they have a few outlets island wide, as for the one shown in the above,
would be their first outlet in Singapore, which is located along 'Eng Hoon Street'.
That outlet is also located near 'Tiong Bahru Market'. :)
