The best thing about Orchard Road is that it is spotted with numerous cafes and restaurants. I was with a friend, exhausted from shopping when we popped into the basement of Paragon, and found ourselves in a pâtisserie, Canelé. Stylishly decorated, the dimly litted cafe draws its inspiration from Pierre Herme’s cafe in Paris and its jewel-box concept display of its delicate dessert.


While I found it hard to resist the temptation to order the macaroons (having tried them twice before), we ordered the Tarte Tartin ($12++) with flambé caramelized apple with toffee, crème chantilly and caramelized filo pastry. I love the caramelized filo pastry that gave every mouthful of the dessert a crunchy texture. The overall sweetness of the dessert is not at all sickening and is sure to delight. While service leaves much to be desired (actually its horrendous ), I’m sure i will return again, if only for those delicious macaroons.

Also try the : Sea Salt and Caramel Macaroon and Strawberry Shortcake

Canelé 1-25 Paragon, 290 Orchard Road
