The influx of French expats in the Serangoon neighbourhood – their international school, the Lycee Français de Singapour, has a campus in the area – comes with benefits, like this deli in Serangoon Gardens. French transplants Morgane Freyermuth and Jean-Baptiste Couty fill the narrow La Petit Boutique flanked by the local lottery shop with enough wine, cheese and home-cooking provisions from back home to soothe a homesick expat.
Aficionados of cured curds of all stripes will certainly appreciate the reasonable prices for the priced-by-weight cheeses on offer, like the 36-month-old Gouda and truffle brie that Couty flavours in a back kitchen, as well as the many little nubs of goat's cheese housed in a tumble in fridge cases. And if you're hankering to bite into a croissant, koign amman or baguette, La Petite's got you covered with a selection of pastries delivered from Tiong Bahru Bakery daily.
