The location is offbeat – a no-man’s-land for restaurants. Pioneering local pastry chef Pang Kok Keong has stepped way out of his comfort zone to set up this pastel-themed French restaurant on the outskirts of Lavender and Jalan Besar. Antoinette’s menu offerings stick to more familiar territory: the ex-Canelé chef seems to have transplanted his previous formula to this Ladurée-meets-Ottolenghi space, so that aside from his usual array of pastries, all-day-breakfast plates, pastas, sandwiches and meats are also offered. He has, of course, added ‘Antoinette’ to the line-up (Earl Grey-infused milk-chocolate mousse with chocolate biscuit, dark-chocolate tea crémeux, raspberry coulis and tea crumble, $9) and baguettes made using a process that takes 24 hours.
