I know there is more than one Tiong Bahru Bakery (the other two located in Orchard/ City Hall) but if you were to ask me, it just does not feel the same if you are not dining at the flagship shop in Tiong Bahru. Kouign Amann, Brioche, spice infused focaccias… you name them, this bakery probably bakes them.
They are not as crowded as compared to the first few months of their inception, which is a good thing for customers since I no longer need to stand and wait for a seat, and subsequently head next door because I am disappointed that no one is giving up their tables any time soon. I am absolutely in love with their croissants but I did not get them this time. The whiff of butter and dough with flaky crunchy bits falling off with each bite. I ate mine with bare hands. Forks and knifes are for people who do not like getting their hands dirty but definitely not me!
If I did not recall wrongly, their croissants were going at 4 for S$10.00 the last time I dropped by.
Ham And Cheese Kouign Amann is the savoury version of the standard plain one. Whilst Pistachio Apricot Kouign Amann (S$4.50) would cater to individuals with a sweet tooth.
Another reason why I frequent Tiong Bahru Bakery is because the bakery is simply innovative! The bakers are willing to experiment with new flavours instead of sticking with traditional time tested food. There is almost something new to try each and every time I visit them.

I recall each time I walked past this bakery, the strong whiff of coffee brews just overwhelm my nasal passages, entering my brain hinting me to enter this place. Somehow rather, that familiar aroma is long gone. Perhaps, they had changed their bean supplies but whatever it is, you could still grab a nice smooth cuppa at this bakery.
