The first thing that come to your mind when you mention Madam Patisserie is of course Pastry. Burger, Shepherd's Pie or Teriyaki Salmon will hardly come across your mind. This time around I receive an invitation from HungryGoWhere on behalf of Madam Patisserie to sample their new bistro menu.

 

The décor of this place has simple yet elegant look. The colour combination of baby blue, tangerine and white just astonishing. When you enter the shop, you will be bedazzled with the pastries selection such as pineapple upside down cake, lemon drizzle cake, Lemon Meringue Tart, sample of High Tea set and croissants.

 

For seating, you can choose for indoor and outdoor seating. My suggestion is go for the outdoor seating, under the tent. The scenery is just fantastic, as it is facing the Singapore river.

 

We started our sampling from Madame Burger ($14.90) and Teriyaki Salmon ($14.90). The patties of the burger is tender and juicy. The honey oats buns is light and tasty. The pink caramelised onion is just so inviting. Teriyaki Salmon is served with steamed rice. The salmon is perfectly cooked, the teriyaki sauce is quite thick but goes well with the rice and pickled cucumber.

 

For the Shepherd's Pie ($11.90), they use mince lamb for the meat base. The ingredients fillings are quite good, topped with mashed potatoes and mozzarella cheese. It was baked before serving to create the crispy topping. The taste can be slightly gamey due to the lamb. So if you can't take gamey taste, avoid this dish.

 

Their all day breakfast ($16.90) is not something that I would recommend. The dish is just too simple, just like your home cook breakfast. Grilled Ham is just a no no for me, as it is too saltish and kind of a waste though. The best part of this dish is actually the toast, which was soft in the inside with an light crispy exterior.

 

The desserts here are still the star. Pink Indulgence ($18) is my top choice. Trio of strawberry mille feuille, strawberry panna cotta & strawberry granita. The feuile is just thin and light. You can taste the intense flavour of the strawberry in the panna cotta, while the granita was just refreshing.

 

For other desserts review such as Coffee Soufflé ($19), the Churros ($16) or Warm Chocolate Cake ($18) check here.

 

Service on my second visit, just two words “IMPROVEMENT NEEDED”. We find the service staff's attitude is simply cold or should I say that they do not seem to be interested in serving us. Table was not set properly, even serviette was insufficient.

 

The verdict: I personally find that Madame Patisserie is performing below its standard. With a little more fine tuning in different area, it can definitely delivery a memorable dining experience. It is not everyday you find the a la-carte desserts are more expensive then normal a la carte menu. It does show, that desserts here are still the main attraction. Cheers!!

Nice Hang Out By The Pier

Madame Patisserie, as its name suggests, is a casual hang out by the pier at Boat Quay.

With a desserts with all day breakfast and food to match, the place is ideal for that wondering tai tai looking for that long afternoon tea.

With some bites like burgers and salmon terriyaki as some of the food options, the thing to try though is the desserts - especially the strawberry ones. Expect lighter balance "Japanese" style desserts.

Come for the ambience, not food

Average cafe food fare. Lovely interior decor though. Perfect location for night viewing next to Singapore River!

Nestled against the river bank along Singapore River lies a rather new patisserie spot, with its distinctive logo resembling that of Antoinette's. But besides the Queen's head against Tiffany blues backdrop, and serving delectable pastries, I believe that's where the similarities end.

Complete with casual, lounging type of furniture as well as a pretty lawn-type alfresco seating area (offering views of the famous river), Madame Patisserie's is famous for its three-tier high tea set, which was one of the reasons that drew me forth.

We shared the famous 3-tiered High Tea set (SGD$33.00) - comprising of an assortment of savoury items as well as desserts. The items were simple but delicious without being too overwhelming, the flavors succint in their miniature forms.

The top tier was the scones - fluffy and solid without being rock hard, in fact the perfect texture with powdery hints. They were not too sweet, so went well on their own or paired with one of the many jams served - raspberry, strawberry, pineapple, butter etc.

Next, there were the Cheese Egg Mayo pastries - a very homely recipe done right - simple but tasty on soft pastry.

Then the Smoked Salmon Baguette - lightly flavored by the pickle slice it came with. Smoked salmon rarely, if never, go wrong for me, as long as it is not un-fresh.

Next to it was the Smoked Chicken Sandwich - another delicacy masked by the rich flavor of cream

The Cucumber Sandwich next to it was also creamed with cheese, making it a delightfully sweet and crisply-fresh dish

The Raspberry Cheesecake was soft and moist, with the rich flavor of raspberry bursting forth in the mouth once chewed.

The Vanilla Dome was another soft and moist creation, complete with the richness of vanilla's overture

We loved the Nutella Tart - crusty and vivid in its velvety chocolate's smoothness.

Lastly, the Lemon and Blueberry Crumble - a soft reminiscant of a muffin with well-developed flavors of citrus and berries all in one
