Singapore - French Café - Tiong Bahru Bakery


While exploring the Tiong Bahru neighbourhood, don’t be surprised if some French people stop you and ask their way to Gontran’s Bakery. They’re talking about… Tiong Bahru Bakery. French Master baker and ex TV star Gontran Cherrier had a good nose and opened his first Singapore joint in today’s famous Eng Hoon Street. Essentials are all displayed, croissant, pain au chocolat, baguette, sandwiches… The taste is not exactly like home, but good. Some eccentricities like classic croissants remade and packed with sausage, chicken or salmon would make a true French hit the roof. But it’s modern… Or is it?

ASK: For the brioche crusty cake “kouign amann”, a Breton speciality sometimes hard to find, even in France.
