Ah Gontran Cherrier. Reunited less than a year later. The Chef behind Singapore’s Tiong Bahru Bakery but for anyone who has tried his namesake bakery, you know the Singapore bakery is incomparable.
On a cold rainy Sunday morning, my girlfriends and I headed for his Shibuya outlet for pastries to start our day. They did not disappoint. When one walks in to the triple-level cafe, one will be greeted with a pillar…
Plus Chocolate Kouign Amann.
Walk further in for more pastries…
There were some special pastries for sale…
Look to your right for more pastries…
These are famous but my gfs were not interested. Bleh. Another trip is in order.
My favourite has got to be the outstanding Cassis Chocolate Almond Croissant. Gontran Cherrier’s croissant is always undoubtedly flaky and buttery. This croissant was no exception. Plus the cassis providing much needed tanginess.
The Green Tea Brioche revealed with Ferrero Rocher-flavoured paste within. What a sweet surprise.
Gontran Cherrier. Simply splendid.
