Bread & Hearth – Keong Saik Road

Keong Saik Road had recently seen a few quite interesting openings, such as Afterglow, Muchachos and most recently Potato Head Folk.

Opened barely a week when we visited, Bread & Hearth is an artisan bakery that bakes their bread fresh in-store everyday. Their menu consists of tarts, freshly-baked bread and sandwiches, serving organic cola/lemonade, coffee and Gryphon teas for beverages.

(Matcha Orange)

The Matcha Orange soft roll caught our attention as it was a daring attempt of putting two ingredients rarely matched together. It went to be rather fine, as the Matcha flavour was really light on the palate while it included some orange bits to chew on for a bit of citric zest to tantalize the tastebuds. The downside was however the soft roll itself; a wee bit dry and dense that it was rather hard to swallow.

(Salted Caramel Tarte)

Only one tart was available, and it was the Salted Caramel Tarte. Coming with a generous amount of Macademia nuts, they provided a great break for the heavy scorched flavour of the caramel. I was fine with how it tasted, but the sticky and gooey salted caramel was too heavy for my dining partner to handle. Tart base was rather cookie-like; a wee bit hard to cut without trying to attract too much attention from surrounding diners. Due to how heavy it tasted, it probably be good to share this with one or two more friends.

(Flat White)

They were very secretive with their coffee beans used for their coffee here; the cashier was telling me that she thought it was imported from Italy and asked the barista to find out more, only to return with an answer that they use their “own” blend for their coffee. No matter what it is though, the coffee had a pretty medium body that had nutty and chocolatey tones.

As compared to the more established bakeries, Bread & Hearth has a bit to fine tune on their recipes, but we thought it seriously had the potential if they do start some serious R&D and come up with more bakes and pastries for tea so as to attract more cafe-going crowds as well.
