Consider yourself a croissant fanatic? I got just the thing for you.
Located right next to Naga House is the newly renovated bakeshop, Kwaasong in Lorong Telok. Yes, you read that right.
Kwaasong is a colloquial twist to the French term, croissant, making anyone who says it aloud have a little giggle (Go on, try it out).
Just a 5-mins walk from Clarke Quay MRT station, the newly launched shop offers an assorted range of baked goods ranging from S$2.50 to S$8.50— a steal, if you ask me, especially since it is located near the CBD.
What is a croissant shop without any croissants, am I right? They currently offer Butter Croissant (S$4.50), Pain Au Choc (S$6) and Cinnamon Princess Amann (S$6). The bakehouse uses French Insigney butter and premium eggs, you can be assured that you will be getting quality pastries at affordable prices . Each pastry presents a delightful golden flaky exterior yet soft and buttery bite — it’s hard not to resist.
One of their signature items is their Egg Custard Tart (S$5.50) which deviates from the more commonly found Portugese egg tarts. You’ll find yourself naturally gravitating towards its unique eclair shape.
It almost seems like you’re getting more than what you pay for (girl math!). Wrapped in puff pastry and filled with a silky eggy mixture, these tarts are baked till golden brown to achieve its flaky texture.
For our savoury lovers, fret not. They also offer the Truffle Emmental Fold (S$6.50) and Bacon Emmental Fold (S$6.50). Both are generously loaded with emmental cheese which may just tempt you into breaking your new year’s diet resolution (myself included). Some reviews have stated that the bacon adds a nice touch of smokiness and chew to the pastry — perfect if you enjoy richer flavours.
If you do decide to drop by, do take note that they are currently a takeaway-only bakery offering pre-orders. However, if you prefer to eat them fresh out of the oven, they have a small area with free seating outside the shop as well.
You may wish to request for them to heat up your pastries before consumption. Do remember to drop them a DM on Instagram to reserve your items before heading down to prevent any disappointment!
Need something to get you through the week? Kwaasong is definitely a great place to start.
