When it comes to having pastries in Singapore, Le Matin Patisserie is one of those highly sought after.

Le Matin Patisserie has opened a brunch and bakery café in the heart of town at ION Orchard, bringing with it signature French delicacies for brunch, dinner and dessert.

A little background: Owner Singaporean Chef Mohamed Al-Matin trained at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney, and worked at some of the renowned patisseries there including Adriano Zumbo Patisserie and Black Star Pastry.

He was previously the Head Pastry Chef of Restaurant Andre, and was also Pastry Sous Chef at one of the best restaurants in the world – Noma.

An impressive resume.

With more than 8 years of experience in fine pastry making, he is an expert when it comes to pastries and desserts.

Akin to having pastries served in fine-dining restaurants.

This French-inspired patisserie aims to serve up an ever-evolving menu of unique pastries, expertly-crafted from ingredients sourced from the world over.

Do bring along some patience if you are intending to head down especially during opening days, as they may take some time to prepare the intricate food.

Diving straight to the new brunch items, they include the Black Truffle Scrambled Eggs Croissant ($34), Ox Tongue & Bresaola Croque Monsieur ($24), Seafood Pot Pie ($24), Crab, Caviar & Waffles ($24), to Smoked Beef Cheek Bahn Mi ($18).

Certainly not the average pricing out there (most items are above the $20 price bracket), but you are getting brunch items with a bit of that fine-dining restaurant finesse.

While Croissant Sandwiches are a common offering in cafes now, this Black Truffle Scrambled Eggs Croissant ($34) spells “indulgence” all over.

What you get is a round croissant of a burger stacked with black truffle aioli and truffle paste, fluffy and buttery scrambled eggs.

Not forgetting 8g of sliced black truffles on top.

The flaky croissant pastry was in its element, though I wished for the eggs to be slightly creamier to bring it another level up.

One of the highlights to me was certainly the Seafood Pot Pie ($24), which did not look like the conventional classic.

What you get is a puff pastry packed with a variety of seafood including salmon belly, snapper, Tiger prawns, green mussels, clams and scallops.

There was that moment of “wow” when crispy pastry met rich fillings intermingled in the mouth.

Interestingly, the mouthfeel, creaminess and medley of flavours was both hearty and comforting, and mildly brought me to a wonderland.

For fans of Le Matin’s pastries, good to know that there are available for ordering displayed neatly in the counter.

These include the sweet treats of Almond Croissant ($7.50), Kouign Amann ($7.50), Canelé ($5.50), Pain Au Chocolat ($7.50) and Pistachio and Rose Escargot ($8).

There are also the savouries of Wagyu & Bone Marrow Sausage Roll ($16), Escargot Escargot ($13), Lamb & Red Wine Pie ($15), and Fermented Mushroom Quiche ($12).

The recommended would be the Wagyu & Bone Marrow Sausage Roll ($15), with minced wagyu beef rolled up in flaky puff, topped with bone marrow and glazed with black garlic and garnished with a thyme stem.
