The Kouign Amann of TBB

29 Sep

Don’t look if you cannot control yourself. The Kouign Amann (pronounced: kween amahn) in the picture is indeed as good if not better than it looks.

Flakes of pastry fall to the ground with the first bite, and you won’t care because you’ve got one of the best things on earth in your mouth – with a gentle hint of saltiness, sweetness brought about by its stickiness, culminating in the richness of the surprisingly light yet buttery pastry. You won’t be able to hear your friends sniggering at the bits of pastry around your mouth, cos it wouldn’t matter, you have your Kouign Amann and they don’t. And when you’re through with your 1st Kouign Amann, before you get up to get your 2nd one, you can have the last laugh.
I want to be selfish and not tell you where to get it but I’m sure you’ll have your ways and they are making it easier to get your hands on one of these what with 2 shops now, so I’ll just make it easy for you and tell you:

Tiong Bahru Bakery

There. Knock yourselves out. 🙂

Are you like us when we travel – always heading back to your favourite haunts each time you visit the place? R and I are like that with the places we travel to often. In Hong Kong we always have a sunset dinner overlooking the harbour from Kowloon to Hong Kong at Hutong. join the line to have a bowl of Beef Curry Noodles at Kau Kee or have Dim Sum at Luk Yu Tea House. When in Sydney we most definitely head to Bills at Surry Hills (touristy I know, but I can’t help it!), Bourke Street Bakery (my absolute must-go bakery, wish there was one in Singapore! thankfully I got their cookbook :)) and there’s Single Origin Roasters (SOR), our new found breakfast haunt.
