Whenever we are in Tokyo, we always make it a point to drop by Henri Charpentier to have desserts and tea, as well as to get some gifts in the form of madeleines, financiers and biscuits for friends.
Henri Charpentier is one of our favourite patisseries in Tokyo and it has exceptional desserts and pastries in a classy tea salon. We are thrilled that Henri Charpentier is opening its first overseas dessert salon in Singapore at Dempsey Hill on 9 October 2014. Besides its signature Crepe Suzette and cakes, the patisserie will also be serving exclusive Singapore-inspired desserts.
A good strawberry shortcake is one that has pillowy soft sponge cake with sweet and fresh strawberries, and super delicious whipped cream.
It is an old-fashioned and rustic cake that is perfect as a mid-afternoon tea break, or for a sweet ending after dinner. It is an everyday cake; one that you can always turn to when in need of a pick-me-up. Here is a list of the Best Strawberry Shortcakes in Singapore.
Note: Kki at Ann Siang Hill is currently closed, and it is currently looking for a new premise.
I first heard of Kki Cafe at Ann Siang Hill from a friend, and then another friend mentioned it too. I was about to visit Kki, but suddenly, all the media and food blogs in Singapore started to write about it. I am not sure about you, but I am not one who will follow the crowd, so I decided to wait for the hype to die down.
Finally, my chance to visit Kki Patisserie came. After having dim sum at Majestic Restaurant, my friends wanted some cakes for desserts, so we dropped by Kki Cafe. Given that there are so many new dessert places in Singapore, is Kki Cafe worth the trip?
“Brad, my friends are throwing a Poolside Cake Party. Wanna come?”
Sometimes, we need to do crazy things to stay sane. Like eating 20 whole cakes at one go… The Cake Party is kind of like a mini competition. Everyone brought their best cakes, or rather, what they think is the best cake in Singapore. We got a good mix of cakes from Hotel Delis, to Patisseries, Bakeries and Cake Shops in Singapore.
It was really fun when everyone arrived with their cakes, we were like kids being locked up in Disneyland. Just imagine the excitement as we lined up the cakes on the table. It was cake, cake, cake, cake, cake, and more cakes for the whole night.
The question on everyone’s mind: which is the Best Cake in Singapore?
I have been to Patisserie Glace and in fact, blog about their Japanese Desserts and Cakes a few times before. But I am curious about how they have been doing since Chef Yamashita left to set up Flor Patisserie, so I went back and had some cakes (all in the name of curiosity).
Flor Patisserie by Chef Yamashita is a new Japanese Patisserie in Singapore. The talented chef was previously from the ever-popular Patisserie Glace, left and set up his own dessert place at the quaint Duxton Hill.
