tiong bahru bakery crane road new outlet

Since their humble beginnings in 2012, Tiong Bahru Bakery has opened their newest branch along Crane Road in Joo Chiat.

Tiong Bahru Bakery’s Kouign Amann is no stranger to cafe hoppers. But they’re a lot more than their French treats.

Indulge in a hearty Breakfast Croffle ($22), part of their Crane Road and Waterway Point exclusive menu.

The croffle, a cross between a croissant and waffle, was airier and less buttery than expected, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was the perfect vessel for the more flavourful elements on plate, starting with a robust herb ranch sauce. The bacon was also caramelised, counteracting the earthy, meaty flavours undertones of the portobello mushrooms.

For something less brunch-y, and more lunch-y, the croffle also comes as a Pull My Pork Croffle ($22) — topped with Mexican pulled pork, pickled jalapeño, avocado, sour cream, and coriander.

A local take on the American ‘Eggs with Soldiers’, we have the Soldier Stack ($12). Sous vide eggs, soy sauce, and sliced sourdough, I guess you could also call this a western take on our local kopitiam breakfast.

Other than their Kouign Amann?

If you’re dining at Tiong Bahru Bakery, and you’re not ordering their crowd favourite, you’re living life wrong.

The Kouign Amann ($4.2) is flaky, sweet, and buttery. You have to try it…

But, if you want to deviate from the norm and order something other than the Kouign Amann, here’s the next best thing.

The Green Tea Almond Croissant ($6.2) is intensely nutty from the almond filling, almond flakes and the dusting of matcha powder. It’s also the right amount of sweetness, and surprisingly, the matcha shone through, despite how flavourful the almond was.

Also, have you heard about their croissants giveaway on April’s Fools?
