The battle of the 2 Cs!@Artisan Boulangerie Co, Great World City vs Tiong Bahru bakery, Raffles City

source image

follow url Right after an awesome breakfast session at Tiong Bahru, I started to surf online for popular bakeries nearby, and parisian based-Artisan popped up with gorgeous pictures of their famous croissants!

clomid interactions Spark and spur of the moment, off to Great World city!

Battle of the 2Cs, coming up!

image

Who will win my heart? Artisan….or Tiong Bahru? (Excited!)

After slicing it up, flakyness wise was definitely there, but a little too much for me. The light fluffyness on the inside was gone, making the croissant a little too dry for me. SGD 2.80 per piece.

I think I have found the better C among the 2..and it goes to Tiong Bahru! Writing about this now just makes me want to have one at is instant! The croissant was almost as good as the one I had freshly baked in Paris.

I am making it my mission to hunt for the best croissant, salute to all the bakers! I know this pastry seems simple but very difficult to master a yummylicious one!

Sinful porky affair@3 little pigs&the big bad wolf, Bangsar Village

I heard so much about this place and finally… the opportunity came. I gotta say, the menu was creatively designed and written till it makes you salivate and feels like ordering almost everything.

Almost all the dishes we ordered were the restaurant’ s recommended choices.

They have a special ‘FRANK’ menu this month and we ordered the FrankSinatra menu: 4 types of sausages, lying on a pillow of mash potatos, complemented with a pile of wedges. RM 36.

The dish was…rather normal. The best sausage was the cheese sausage. There were tiny chinese frankfurters..and the comment I got from my friend was “can buy a big pack of this for RM 2 in the market!”

image

The bacon, pork slices with egg carbonara was quite good. Absolutely sinful.. artery clogging to the max. Advisable to share or else you would be stuffed to the top if you finish this meal on your own. Twenty plus ringgit.

This seafood platter, twenty plus ringgit was the biggest disappointment of all. I guess we should have listened to our gut feelings..”never eat fish in a porky restaurant”

The seafood (calamari, fish slices, osyters) were small and not fresh, heavily coated with batter. It was a struggle to finish this.

image

The caramelized roast pork (RM 19) was pretty delish. Sweetened and tender. I am sorry…my arteries…you all worked hard today…

Better than the ones in Vintry but the old skool chinese foodie stalls famous for roast pork still win them.

image

This was beautifully described on the menu. Chocolate sundae…supposedly divine, NOT. ice cream was of poor quality, rough and too sweet. They tried to cover the quality via chopped nuts, chocolate and caramel drizzles. But it did not work…sorry…

This drink is called ‘wake up’ (celery, lime, apple etc). We ordered it, with hopes that we can stay awake after this piggy meal.

All of us were yawning and complaining of sleepiness in the car on the way home.

Wake up? NOT!
