Singapore Series- TWG

I had my heart set on going to TWG before I even left the country, but time went by so quickly I had to squeeze a visit whenever I could which ended up being for breakfast. It probably wasn’t the best time to go especially when what I wanted to try was their dessert range.

I love how all the crockery and cutlery are customised.

Everything for breakfast seemed to be overpriced but we bit the bullet and ordered breakfast anyway, who knows when we would be back again.

Paris breakfast – TWG Tea from our extensive tea list, freshly squeezed orange or apple juice and a choice of 1 croissant or chocolate croissant served with TWG Tea jelly and whipped cream (SGD $20.00) The croissant was so delicious, I didn’t think it even needed the jelly and cream but Tim really liked the jelly.

Juices, teas and jams- oh my!

New York breakfast – TWG Tea from our extensive tea list, freshly squeezed orange or apple juice, Eggs Benedict- homemade toasted English muffins topped with two poached farmhouse eggs served with creamy hollandaise sauce and a choice of smoked salmon or turkey ham (SGD $30.00). I was really impressed with their extensive tea selection but it made it almost impossible to choose one. I ordered some green tea from Laos which was really nice without an overwhelming flavour. For some bizarre reason I cannot find the pictures of my eggs benny, but it wasn’t anything too special. CRAZILY OVERPRICED!

And of course we had to sample their macarons, I don’t exactly remember the flavours but they were REALLY good!

It’s a shame that I went at the wrong meal time to visit TWG. I think coming after dinner for dessert would be perfect and not too expensive. Alas it was too early to eat cake for me, they looked really pretty in the cabinet though!

The next morning just before leaving the hotel…

One more for the road, we couldn’t help ourselves, it was so much cheaper just for the croissant plus taking away!

Singapore Series- Snacking @ Au Chocolat

We had just come from three consecutive restaurants, so I was surprised we could fit any more in but we just couldn’t help ourselves while walking past the very big shop front that was Au Chocolat.

What caught Timmy’s eye was the gelato!

The store offered many goodies from gelato, merchandise, over priced Western cuisine and chocolate (obviously).

It was their French pastry cabinet that caught my eye. They had macarons bigger than the size of my palm!

Rose and Lychee Macaron (SGD $7.00) A nice texture with a lovely strong rose flavour, I would have liked a bit more lychee-ness though.
