My most recent visit to a French Patisserie in Singapore was Voyage Patisserie. Weeks apart, I travelled all the way to the west for Lee’s Confectionery. If you are a Westie, you must read this post. This new and promising French Patisserie situated at Block 343 Jurong East Street 31 is worth exploring.
As usual, only after my visit I being to read other blog posts and got to know that the owner cum chef pâtissier, Lee Yin Quan, graduated from Ferrandi Paris majored in French pastry. Before striking out on his own, he worked under famous Michelin Star chef pâtissier such as Jean-François Piège and Nina Métayer.
Upon entering the nothing extravagant or impressive cafe but into a space of minimalist in mainly white and pine wood colour furnishing, almost instantaneously, my vision was captured by the sparingly counter that showcased 6 pastries neatly in a row with a description placed beside the pastry. There were JIAO ($8), TART ($8), MADU ($8), YOJI ($8), PUFF ($8) and PLUCK ($8). All items are on rotational basis. I wished I could eat them all. Since I was alone, I ordered only 2 pastries.
First is a highly sourish tart that will make your face grimaced. But I love exactly the way it is. Aside the lime curd, the chef has ingeniously added almond cake. I love the nuttiness among tanginess.
Lured to this puff pastry as it sandwiched a local ingredient, Kaya and my favourite Earl Grey in a light but intense cream.
Lee’s Confectionery Menu
Lee’s Confectionery is a welcomed patisserie in the west serving delicate French haute patisserie. Personally, I felt there are still room for improvement in the delivery and execution of a more refined pastries before they are comparable to my favourite French pastry cafe in Singapore, Mad About Sucre.
