(Flourish Pastries had since ceased operations.)
Flourish Pastries is a new bakery that had recently just opened in Tanjong Pagar Plaza.
As it was late when I reached Flourish Pastries, they were only left with several quiches, tarts and croissants.
The Mini Tarts are a bite-sized treat of the original, which can be finished in one pop. Lemon and chocolate were the only flavours left on the shelf, which I got one of each.
(Mini Chocolate Tart)
Rich and sweet, the chocolate ganache for the Chocolate Tart was thick and lightly brushed with a golden stroke, which gave it a classy look that was as good as it looked. It also matched the cookie-like base rather well.
(Mini Lemon Tart)
Lemon Tart was nearly the same, with its a tart lemon curd which was not too strong on its sourness but still refreshing.
I also snagged the only Almond Croissant that was available. Their croissants have a crisp exterior, though the interior was somewhat flaky but had a layer of bread inside; something I was not too fond of. The almonds atop also did not really create much flavour for the croissant in general.
Generally speaking, I found their tarts better. It was quite a pity we went there late and the puffs were sold out, especially since it is a specialty of theirs. I would be back some day though, just to give those a shot.
