(And All Things Delicious has moved to 34 Arab Street and has ceased operations at Blk 462 Crawford Lane. Updated address at the end of the post.)
One of the new bakeries that had just opened up in the Crawford estate, this is a takeaway stall that is located right beside Tolido’s Espresso Nook.
And All Things Delicious used to be an online bakery before it moved into this shop space. Their bakes are claimed to have been made of unprocessed ingredients, and they are also one of the halal-certified bakeries out there. The bakery share this small shop space with Fictive Fingers, a small-scale hand-printed textile design house that takes up half of the shop.
Being a takeaway shop, we were given takeaway boxes and plastic forks so that we could sit around the many benches situated around the neighbourhood to enjoy their bakes. We were initially intrigued by the Sticky Toffee Cake but which switched for the more appealing Apple Galette which came out of the oven several minutes before we made our order. The Apple Galette had a crusty base which was flaky but firm and had sugar sprinkled all over for that speck of sweetness. A good portion of chunky apple slices were inside, which were a nice balance of sweet-sour. It was not incredibly sweet, but felt rather comforting at the same time.
I had my favourite Carrot Cake at Cakes Literally some time back, so despite its good looks I was a bit worried that I would be disappointed with the Carrot Cake. Thankfully, I was impressed by the way it tasted; a really moist cake layer with bits of carrot and a hint of lavender for a flowery scent that changed the game. Even the cream cheese was not really typical vanilla essence with cream cheese mixed in; it carried also a subtle tint of sweetness that went really well. A unique taste of its own that was certainly impressive.
The name of the business says it all; the bakes here are all delicious and comforting, to a point where it feels like as if its baked by a friend for you. The use of unprocessed ingredients makes it light yet delectable, and makes one yearn for more. And All Things Delicious also does special orders and catering, so do check them out for if you need a caterer for cakes that are halal-certified.
