Today I want to eat a kwason. LOL. That TikTok trend just won’t die. And it’s good for Le Matin Patisserie. Perfect timing for opening a new croissant place. (But all of my loyal readers know I’m a Kouign Amann person.)
Chef Matin of Le Matin Patisserie hails from an impressive list of credentials, from the world’s #1 Noma as the Pastry Chef of Rene Redzepi, to Sydney’s Le Cordon Bleu and Restaurant Andre here in Singapore… My expectations are quite high prior to my visit.
They only have a few seats and the rest of their space is occupied by a kitchen. The setup makes the most sense during a pandemic.
So yes, I went to the kwason place and got myself a kwason. It’s just another croissant. It wasn’t that bad, but I think the best croissant I’ve tried is at Amba Marble Arch in London.
Plus the popular Pistachio Escargot — a pastry baked in the shape of a snail, swirling with nutty pistachio custard and rose-scented cranberries. Mmmm. What a mouthful. It’s topped with dried rose petals and chopped pistachios as well.
And then finally, the Kouign Amann. While I prefer Lavender Bakery’s or Tiong Bahru Bakery, this was pretty alright to me. Nothing special or worth a second trip, TBH.
The trek to Le Matin Patisserie is quite a chore, so come here pumped because it’s tucked inside Raeburn Park.
