Singapores Bakeries. Let’s talk!

I’m relatively strict with what I eat and how I treat myself. Simply because I like what I get back in return. To keep the focus in a long run, I allow myself to forget about dairy, sugar, wheat, etc. every once in a while and sit down with a pastry and a roll.

In Singapore my favorite bakery choices for the moment are …

My No 1 is Nick Vina Artisan Bakery at Icon, 10 Gopeng Street at Tanjong Pagar. Every single bread and pastry is handcrafted. The bread is up to German standards and trust me, we guys eat a lot of bread  and daily. Pastries are beautifully prepared, with every detail. Next word would be mouthwatering, then comes delicious. The beauty of Nick Vina Artisan Bakery is that they use minimum ingredients and no artificial ingredients or preservatives. So if you are health conscious but still would like to give yourself a wheat treat once in awhile this is the place to go! … Call it feel good treat.

Yesterday I ran into Tiong Bahru Bakery by Gontran Cherrier at Raffles City Mall. I had a bad, bad sweet tooth and therefore I choose the famous almond chocolate croissant. Sweet, sweet and so tasty. Croissant wise I feel strong French roots. Until late in the evening freshly baked products came out of the oven. … Inviting seating area with cute details like a fresh flower bouquet.

All pictures I made myself.

Tiong Bahru Bakery by Gontran Cherrier belongs together with House, tippling club, Skinny Pizza, forty h4nds, o my dog and ODP to Food Collective by Spa Esprit. nominated House as one of Singapore’s best restaurants in 2012. … The House venue looks like is a winner itself. Have you been there? Please let me know what you think. If you haven’t tried forty h4ands yet … maybe this could be one more “to do” on your list.

Having said this I wish everybody a great weekend. Thanks for reading.


Salad tastes like salad again, tomatoes are tomatoes again

Thursday is delivery day! Convenience is key as a new mummy. I re-organised my household strategies and get things delivered now. So easy. I like this BiTe oF LiFe!

My favorite delivery service in Singapore is Green Circle Eco-Farm. On a 2.2 hectare land leased from the Singapore government, Green Circle Eco-Farm was launched by Evelyn Eng and Lim Tian Soo in late 1999. Everything is organic and as most of the items are grown locally. They are cut in the morning before it get’s delivered to your door. It doesn’t get fresher then that! Salad tastes like salad again, tomatoes are tomatoes again. With a little bit of preparation all veggies, fruits and even salad keep fresh in the fridge for a week … until we get our next delivery. Worth every penny.

Two other delivery services I really like to work with are Redmart and Super Nature.  

Redmart offers a wide, wide, wide variety of products to a fair price, delivery is with a two hour window and can even be chosen for the same day. Brilliant!

SuperNature is one of Singapores organic stores. SuperNature provides a comprehensive range of organic and natural foods, supplements, natural remedies, personal care and household products. As a mum I’m a fan of their selection of baby foods from brands like Holle and Ella.

Where do you shop online for organic and baby food in Singapore? Or else where? What are your favorite eco products for you or your baby? Do you live in Germany for example and eco products are easy available? How about local Farmer markets, anyone?
