Antoinette has now ventured into the Central Business District (CBD) area with the opening of La Patisserie au Sofitel at Sofitel So Hotel Singapore. Patrons can find an amazing selection of French viennoiserie, featuring more than 20 different pastries. In addition, the entire range of Antoinette cakes will be available here, as well as their macarons, chocolates, confectionery and jams.
Pure Butter Croissant 4.2/5
Pure Butter Croissant 4.2/5
Love the multi-layered Pure Butter Croissant ($2.50) which has a flaky exterior and soft interior that comes with a rich buttery taste. The size of the croissant is consider quite huge too.
The Kouglof ($4) which is baked in ceramic mould is dusted with vanilla and coated with sugar. I personally find it like stollen but with a nice smokey burnt butter flavour.
Hazelnut Swirl 4.2/5
The Hazelnut Swirl is one of my favourite. Not only does it has the buttery soft texture like the croissant, it boasts an additional nutty and crunchy enjoyment.
A rarely seen viennoiserie is the Bostock ($3), a twice baked pastry. The brioche is soaked in rum syrup and baked again in a tube form. I am not a big fan of rum, great that this is not too rich in alcohol content. What I like about it, is the exterior burnt crust. The bitterness actually complement quite well with the rum soaked brioche.
Pear Danish 3.50
A star item at La Patisserie au Sofitel is the star shaped like Pear Danish ($3.50). This is more complex with a more dimensional enjoyment, topped with almond crumble.
Satay Swirl 3/5
Paying homage to the vibrant and popular satay street of Lau Par Sat, which is just adjacent to Sofitel So, Chef Pang created a new and original Singapore inspired viennoiserie to mark the launch of La Patisserie au Sofitel. Quite similar to the hazelnut swirl, the Satay Swirl ($3.50) comes with hints of sambal spiciness. However it does not really have any association to the familiar satay flavour.
Besides the 20 over pastries at La Patisserie au Sofitel, the entire range of Antoinette cakes are also available here. More choices and more reasons to drop by La Patisserie au Sofitel.
Located at the hotel lobby, the patisserie offers a sitting space for about 50 pax. Birthday cake is also available for pre-order. It will be a good consideration to get a cake for your colleague's next birthday.
