Two Bakers Artisan Patisserie

By Saturday, June 27, 2015 , , , , ,

In a feeble attempt to try to keep up with the Singapore cafe scene, i headed back to the Jalan Besar enclave, a now established spot for coffee and all day breakfasts. Competition is insane with players like CSHH (heard their food is in the s* now), The Bravery (still don't get why it's crowded), and AEIOU for the savories mostly; and Windowsill and Antoinette for sweets (you can forget about Tiramisu Hero). Adding to the mix is Two Bakers, an 8 mth old artisanal dessert cafe overseen by 2 Le Cordon Bleu Paris trained chefs.  
We popped by after brunch at AEIOU and regretted immediately as we found out Two Bakers has quite a good selection of savories (we thought they only do desserts). Daily brunch is available till 3pm, with options of eggs, burgers and pastas for under $15.

Their dessert repertoire includes eclairs, cakes, and tarts made from premium ingredients. Spoiled for choice, we decided to go with the recommendations given by the friendly and funny boys behind the counter.
Whatever you do, do not give their tarts a miss. I am insanely in love with the Key Lime Tart ($7.80). The smooth light curd had the right amount of acidity and sweetness, and a hint of bitterness of the key lime peel as an afternote. And the sable tart shell is oh-so-fine- a perfect salty and sandy crunch held together with French butter. This is my current favorite citrus tart (i also like those from Carpenter and Cook. Artisan Boulangerie Co. also does a decent one imo).
The Le Chocolate Noir ($8.80) in the background (and it should remain there) was said to be popular as well. I guess chocolate mousse with hazelnut feuilletine is quite a safe option. I didn't like this because it had an slightly stale oily taste which i couldn't pinpoint the exact origin to.
If you must have chocolate, you're way better off with the Mount Fuji ($8). They had me at Matcha. What works in this one is the chocolate flavor of the sable, and the smooth truffle-like and intense flavor of the Matcha White Chocolate ganache. Honestly there was no need for that azuki bean center (there wasn't much anyway). 
I really like Two Bakers and if you gotta have your sweet fix while cafe hopping around Jalan Besar, i'd say forget all the rest and head right here. NOW.
