Lunar New Year is one of the best time to pig out on all the delectable goodies and not feel guilty about eating them because everyone is doing the same, and come on, it’s only once a year!!! Pineapple tarts are my guilty pleasure — the sweet and the savoury, crumbly crust and chewy center, all in a bite.
Besties and I have been making our own pineapple tarts since 2 years ago and although it’s a whole lot of hard work, it becomes all worth it when we get these little ones out of the oven and into our happy tubbies.
Sorry, but we’re going to be selfish and keep the recipe to ourselves for the time being! 😉
The (awesome) food places around my new workplace are just about the best thing ever! After a year of eating canteen food at my previous workplace, I finally have choices! I feel like a kid in a candy store everyday (don’t judge).
All within 10-15minutes of walking we have Tiong Bahru Market (really good fried fish lor mee), Tiong Bahru Bakery , Tiong Bahru Plaza (Qi Ji‘s popular nasi lemak and popiah, MOS Burger — my favourite fastfood, Yakun), Great World City (Cedele, Starbucks for my quick coffee fixes), Prata Paradise, Peperoni Pizzeria…
And today, we tried the highly-popular Tiong Bahru Bakery for lunch!
The squid ink bread was great — fragrant, a tad crispy on the outside and totally fluffy in the inside, with a slight vinaigrette taste. Smoked salmon, parma ham, mixed leaves fillings however, not so impressive. The lemon tart too was a hit and miss. This time, the filling was great (I love the lemon-y, custard texture) but the pastry was so hard (it was difficult to even put my fork through it).
My skinny flat white was the star of the meal — hands down, the best coffee I’ve tasted in awhile. And I love how they serve so many renditions of coffee, and not just the regular mocha or latte.
