Châteraisé @ ION Orchard
Originally based in Yamanashi prefecture in Tokyo, Châteraisé is home to immensely popular Japanese pastries in Singapore. It launched its first store in the city-state in 2015 and continued to open multiple outlets across the region.
They are known for using healthy ingredients in cakes and desserts through agricultural collaboration with Japanese farmers. The dessert shop has many Japanese pastries that can satisfy your sweet tooth, including Tochiotome Japanese strawberry fair, crispy chocolate cake, milk chocolate and strawberry flavoured petit chocolate, and more.
Nesuto is the Japanese translation of the English word nest, as the café embodies a “cosy yet extravagant environment” for their customers.
Although the café is mainly influenced by French pastry techniques, their signature Japanese Goma cake is one of the top-selling delights and has gone through three different versions.
Last March, Nesuto released a limited-edition Japanese Goma made with Japanese black sesame Streusel, Japanese black sesame Creme Diplomat, and Japanese black sesame “Fluff” chiffon sponge.
Located in Duxton Hill, Flor Pâtisserie serves authentic Japanese-inspired and French-based pastries in Singapore.
Derived from the Portuguese word, Flor means flowers and is pronounced as fu-ro-ru in Japanese. Similar to the beauty and nature of flowers, the bakery prides itself with fresh cakes and edible “flowers.”
Using the finest ingredients only, some of its popular Japanese sweets are Waguri Millefeuille, Yuzu strawberry tart, strawberry shortcake, Paris Vert, and Mont Blanc, among others. Price starts at S$9.85. Flor is plastic-free, so patrons are advised to bring their own bag.
