Known for their sweet, flaky treats, Tiong Bahru Bakery also bakes some beautiful—and large—brioche loaves, crusty baguette, and airy sourdough to round out any meal. Treat yourself to some of their signature Kouign Amann, with all its crispy, buttery, sugar-glazed goodness, or make a meal of it with the Ham and Cheese Croissant, or the classic Le Parisien. Island wide delivery is available using GrabFood, or you can WhatsApp your nearby outlet for takeaway preorders.

Known for its super bakery and coffee delights, Tiong Bahru Bakery have just extended their menu to that of a Diner. Currently only in their Funan and Raffles City outlets the all-day dining concept serves honest food that is close to the heart. Chef Paul Bocuse’s experience lies in fermentation, slow cooking and gut-friendly food. An amazing combination for many who know, that these are tenets to cooking with plant-based food that our digestive systems love. I have often used TBB as a pit stop in between meetings, to have an almond croissant and coffee. Not only are they very well located they also have what I need – the option of almond / coconut milk that my almost dairy-free palette looks for. So imagine my excitement when I was informed of TBB’s new Diner concept! So many dishes that are vegetarian / vegan and still amazingly delicious (much to the surprise of some meat lover colleagues). So the journey at TBB Diner began with a Chayote kimchi and mung bean salad. Crunching on crispy buckwheat and toasted peanuts, this vegan salad was topped with watercress and pea shoots. The stunner here was the green parsley oil dressing. This is where I tasted the difference that makes the difference. Chef Paul’s start-from-scratch dressings and condiments are so evidently outstanding that you have to try it to believe it. My discerning palate was having a good time at TBB Diner, challenged on every front to taste things that were new and tasted delicious. Here comes another twist. Is it an anomaly to say that I had the juiciest chicken breast ever? Tainted for its dry and tasteless meat, chicken breast has often been frowned upon by the most discerning of palettes. Slow cooked in sous vide style the chicken breast was tender and juicy. Accompanied with caramelized pumpkin (slow cooked for more than two hours) and a herb pomelo salad, the stunner yet again was the wicked wasabi dressing. All this for a mere $20 – so well priced!!! As a preference I have always been partial to starters rather than mains. I also avoid soups as they fill me up too quickly which inhibits any opportunity to continue my greedy sojourn. This super green vegetarian warm soup would have to be an exception! Made with local greens and served with the same chunky vegetables, the unexpected twist which I so loved was the pickled beetroot which lifted the soup with its piquant touch. The green herb oil which lent a touch of beauty to the dish was made from scratch – a real show of the depth of Chef Paul’s expertise at TBB Diner. Feeling so pleased with the fare thus far the miso whole wheat spaghetti with broccolini arrived. If you are one of those people who feels disillusioned when you hear the words vegetarian or vegan try these dishes. They are jaw droppers and will leave you coming back for more. The basil and almond pesto with a touch of grated Padano cheese is testimony to how a dish so simple can have so much flavor. If you are not convinced by my vegetarian rave above then this one is for you. A pulled pork creamy risoni pasta with roasted king oyster mushrooms topped with enoki mushrooms. Simply heaven as the pulled pork flavor ran through this entire dish. So good! For $22 I would be a happy camper to have this wholesome meal as my main which would do me for the day. I was excited that Chef Paul at TBB Diner cared so much for the vegan diner as they are so often sidelined. A black sandwich with Portobello, avocado and hummus (made from lentils not chickpeas) arrived. Accompanied by my favourite sweet potato chips, this sandwich had shredded pickles and fresh herbs interspersed. So important I feel to have pickles in a sandwich especially when they are made with such finesse and are not the ghastly overpowering varieties sold in bottles. I also wonder why more chefs are not making the conversion to sweet potato faster. Knowing the value and divine taste of sweet potato and especially when it is a low GI food! To add more punch to the understanding of what was involved in food preparation before we got to it, Chef Paul of TBB Diner showed us the 158 year old starter that he used to make the 100% sourdough waffle. Tasting the waffle on its own to get a pure taste of the sourdough content, I was impressed at the taste, the crunchy exterior and the chewy inside. Within seconds the real waffle appeared. Topped with bacon and eggs, maple syrup, goji berries and ricotta cheese. Sinful, to die for but who cares? One for the day when you feel like a naughty brunch that has all the elements to satisfy and please. If you are a waffle maniac and would like a piece on the side with your cup of coffee that is available at TBB Diner too. Just ask! To end this scrumptious meal we had a fluffy brown butter pancake served with mango, lemongrass Chantilly and caramelized almonds. That’s not all. To make it even more decadent, a generous drizzle of salted butter caramel sauce. I was left in awe of Chef Paul’s culinary skills. At the tender age of 25 he sits at the helm of TBB Diner, creating dishes that are so attractive that I can’t wait to go back. This new menu at Funan and Raffles City outlets has elevated TBB Diner to a new level. The food created is not the same-same fare available at most places. I was so intrigued by his outstanding dressings and fermented touch that made all the difference. I can only see that this new slant of TBB Diner will overtake the old brand of a bakery very quickly. Once diners try the fare they will be back for more. I hope that this menu will be extended to all TBB locations. Exclusively good food in a relaxed ambience with great prices. That is what you can expect when you get to TBB Diner!
