[Verdict: Terryfic 👍🏻] I dare say you can’t go wrong with the Kouign Amann from @tiongbahrubakery. They are apparently the first (or one of the first) to bring in this sinfully delicious Brittany viennoiserie onto Singapore’s shores. If you haven’t already tried this, please do.

It’s a huge piece and it’s so good that you’ll finish it all. Don’t count the calories or sugar in it to prevent a shock-induced heart attack. Quite a good deal for $5++.

Why is it sinful?

Copious amounts of sugar is sprinkled between many layers of laminated dough made with quality French butter. That same dough is then swirled to give its distinct appearance.

The end result is a crispy, flaky exterior that’s coated with caramelised sugar. On the inside, it’s fragrant, soft and buttery.

If you’re wondering why it can be a bit salty within the crispy pastry, that’s because salt is one of the key ingredients.
