Not located in California but in Singapore (there is a Bakersfield city in Southern California), Bakersfield is full of bakers’ feel.
That is how we feel about this newly opened patisserie at Fusionopolis.
Bakersfield can be difficult to find for those not familiar with One-North. Some cab drivers still cannot differentiate Biopolis, Fusionopolis and Mediapolis. ”Simi-polis, they asked?”
Friends working at Biopolis had trouble locating it after walking in rounds as it is located on the other side of the main road.
The patisserie’s opening hours is limited to Monday to Friday during office hours (for now), making it impossible for recurrent café-hoppers to stopover during weekends.
“All look so pretty! Which one should we get?” #FirstWorldProblems. Instagram-worthy desserts, spoilt for choices.
A simple sandwich bar & patisserie with 20 seater capacity. We were able to see the bakers in action through the glass wall of the kitchen, while anticipating our bakes
A selection of cakes, tarts and quiches were available. The Caramelised Apple Mousse Cake ($8.50) caught our attention with its shiny bling bling yellow appearance. Snow White would probably be tricked into ordering it.
Made up of crème fraiche sponge, apple mousse, caramelized apple core and hazelnut crunch, it reminded us of an apple pie crossbreed with Ferrero Rocher, and it was pretty light on its own.
The Pistachio Strawberry Tart ($7.50) was an interesting combination of pistachio cream shaped like tear drops (Don’t worry, it won’t make you cry) and fresh strawberries.
The pistachio taste was pretty distinct whereas the crust was crispy. We wished that the crust would have a more buttery taste to it.
The Black Glutinous Coconut Mousse Cake ($8.50) seemed pretty ordinary as compared to other bakes on display. And it’s always the ugly duckling that got neglected.
Layered with Black glutinous sponge, pumpkin creamux, coconut panna cotta and lime sable, each layer gave a different sensation on its own and combined harmoniously when eaten together. This ugly duckling was the true swan in our hearts.
Bakersfield had an entire field of interesting bakes that tasted as good as it looked and we hope to see some changes to their operating hours to attract customers during the weekends.
