Maison Keyser

C says:

Since we were at Scotts Square, we thought we’d try what critics have labelled the second best croissant in Singapore, after the one from Tiong Bahru Bakery. Since it was a bit sad to just get a single croissant, we also bought their bread of the day – a bun studded with white chocolate and topped with chocolate chips.

The croissant definitely wasn’t as good as the one from Tiong Bahru Bakery. The latter had such a definitively buttery flavour that it was good on its own, whereas Maison Keyser’s definitely needed some kind of spread to go with it. It also didn’t have the crisp exterior and chewy interior – this one was just chewy and a bit flat. The white chocolate bun was good, but not worth a special trip there.

I think I just prefer Japanese baked goods to French ones.

The white chocolate bun we had here was better than the croissant. But if we’re talking croissants, Tiong Bahru Bakery is easily much better. Although honestly, Sun Moulin is still my favourite bakery in Singapore.
