Lunch at Two Bakers

With my usual lunch buddies, we went to try the lunch meals at Two Bakers at Horne Road, Singapore after the January’s pay was in. A colleague and myself loved to visit this cafe for desserts, their cakes are impressive and some of them are pretty nice and tasted well.

It was not crowded on the day we visited the cafe and we were sitting at the last table of the back of the restaurant. The table is brightly lighted up with natural sunlight, I did not take any pictures while sitting at this table, to show you all. However, I can tell you, the place is quiet, bright and it is a good place for instagramable pictures, but it faces the kitchen, so it is a little messy in a way.

Back to the food I ordered under the Lunch Menu on that day was the Big Island Soba Bowl. It consists of cold soba, a small piece of pan fried salmon, few pieces of tuna, corns and edamames as vegetables and a poached egg on top. It sauces with avocado sauce and Japanese sesame sauce.

Initially I did not mix the sesame sauce at the bottom of the bowl, I just mixed the soba with some avocado sauce. It tasted plain, of course. It is recommended to mix well with the sauce and nicely break the poached egg on top of the soba. By just having the sesame sauce toward the end of the meal would make the soba tasted salty.

The salmon and tuna are good, well tasted and nicely presented, but the tuna was quite salty. The salt and pepper seemed to be too much on the thinly sliced tuna.

And the rest are pretty healthy ingredients, the edamame and corns.

It is a simple and healthy dish but need to reduce the saltiness level to make it more balanced.

After the meals, we ordered two pieces of cakes, the Yuzu Lemon Tart and the Matcha Passionfruit. I will share these cakes in my next blog. I guess it is good to stop visiting Two Bakers for a while and wait for the new menu for desserts. I am looking forward to see and try their new creative creations.

Two Bakers

Again! After the Christmas’ visit, I went back to Two Bakers, an artisan patisserie shop at Horne Road, Singapore. It is an impromptu visit to have a share of cakes with a colleague after lunch. It was just a distant walk from the food court to cafe.

Litchi Rose

Litchi in French means lychee in English.

It is made of raspberry favoured light sponge cake, with rose infused buttercream, litchi bits and rose petals and carefully designed with a small stalk of rosemary on top of the cake.

See the picture, it looks so pretty. At the first glance, it gives me an impression that the sponge cake is quite dry. It may look better and give better texture if the cake is slightly moist. Overall, the cake is not sweet, not overwhelmed with rose and not creamy, it is quite suitable for my liking.

Two bakers always give me a surprised combination of natural ingredients to make their delicious cakes. I hope to try their main course one day.

Two Bakers

Recently, I revisited the Two Bakers cafe which is located at Horne Road, Lavender for a dessert. From my point of view, their cakes are pretty good ones. It has been my third time trying their cakes and each visit they introduced different kind of cakes according to seasons. This time is Christmas. While the Christmas’ theme cakes selection is not many this time, they are still offering the Autumn’s selection, based on what I saw from their dessert menu. (Dessert menu is different than their main course menu, do ask for the dessert menu if you wish to try their cakes).

The cake on the top right is the Osmanthus Coco. Everyone knows that osmanthus has health benefits, it helps to improve skin, detoxify the body, reduce thick saliva in the throat and boost lung health to name a few. The refreshing taste of the osmanthus together with bites of water chestnut, coconut mousse and mango pineapple compote (whole fruits are cooked in water with sugar and spices) makes it tasted good and interestingly, it is not over sweet. It is decorated with a little Christmas tree biscuit on top of the cake.

The other cake is called Miso Apple Tart. The ingredients are white miso, Granny Smith apple, sable tart shell and almond cream. A little bit research of what sable tart shell is, sable is a French word means sand, which is the French term that takes the place of the English “breadcrumbs”. And, that is made as the base of the tart. The sweetness of the cake is acceptable although it is using white miso which brings up a definite sweet taste.

Personally, I like their cakes very much because of the detailed and the use of different ingredients to make the cakes. I am going for no or low sugar intake and their cake still suit me. I hope they will continue to innovate more creative and healthy choices of cakes for us in the future.

Two Bakers

Two Bakers, Lavender, Singapore.
Again, I revisited this cafe after the last Christmas visit with two other friends. Wow, I cannot imagine it has been so long since my last visit. During my second visit, I went with another friend and we targeted to have more for dessert and shared one main course. Okay, these are what we tried during the visit:-

Bagel with bacon, egg, hash brown and salad with special sauce. And, I forgot the name of this sandwich. ^^ Anyway, our main desserts are these two beauties in which both of us caught in first sight.

The Matcha Swiss Roll contains strong green tea taste which I feel slightly overdo. First few bites are great but when the green tea taste covers all over my mouth, I need to find other things to balance out.

Here is the next dessert we ordered:-

The pear almond pie. The pie isn’t sweet, taste just right and nicely presented.

Two Bakers

Two Bakers, Singapore: I joined the two lovely food lovers for lunch and cafe hopping after that. It was back in December 2015 when we went to Two Bakers to try their Christmas cakes.

The based of the Christmas cake is the same and they have three different Christmas designs, just nice for 3 of us to try.

I did take the decoration on top of the cakes back to office to decorate my monitor. I shall try their main course one day at this cafe when they reopen. I passed by the past few days before the new year, the cafe was closed.
