Now, this is something we’re excited about. A pastry collab between two of the more renowned pastry brands in Singapore: French bakery Le Matin and specialty eclair shop L'éclair. Together, they’ve come up with a 6-piece pastry box featuring local flavours just to celebrate this year’s National Day.
Majority of the pastries are sweet, with éclairs freshly piped with flavours like gula melaka, banana roselle cheesecake, and sweet potato lavender. The latter, with an infusion of sweet potato, is picture-perfect in hues of pastel purple. There’s even a kaya butter toast eclair, as a nod to our country’s classic breakfast. Add on an ispahan croissant, a rose-flavoured pastry that’s scattered with rose petals, and it’s a box that any sweet tooth will enjoy. Otherwise, the hae bee hiam (spicy dried shrimp) doughnut has certainly caught our attention, as it’s the only savoury item in the box – especially with its delicate but flaky shell, and a dried shrimp sitting atop.
Each Le Matin x L'éclair National Day set is priced at $69 and pre-orders have already started. It isn’t available for walk-in purchases, only for delivery or self collection at 190 Clemenceau Avenue between August 4 to 9.
