The French American Bakery - New Halal Bakery In Singapore
According to Instagram user, @hungry.elle.sg
, The French American Bakery opened its doors on 7 August. It's run by a team of two - Aishah, who is also the Head Baker, and her husband. Chef Aishah has 15 years of culinary experience in the pastry kitchen.
True to its name, the artisanal bakery sells a mix of French and American pastries. When you step into the bakery, it'll feel like you've stepped into pastry heaven as you're greeted with a wide range of croissants, tarts, cakes, cookies and more.

just the classic le croissant. If you're craving a taste of American pastry, be sure to get their double chocolate and New York-style cookie and New York cheesecake!
The French American Bakery's cinnamon rolls, creme brulee and kouign amann are high raved by its customers too. If you've never tried kouign amann (literally means cake and butter), it's actually a multi-layered pastry containing butter and sugar.

For those of you who prefer cakes instead, you'll love their chocolate banana walnut loaf, turtle cheesecake, lemon loaf and financiers.
With gorgeous bakes along a popular street like Haji Lane, we're pretty sure The French American Bakery will be seeing long queues in time to come. Do note that they are also open for takeaways only and there's no space for dine-in.
As you wait patiently for your next trip, why not transport yourself to France and America at this new halal bakery in Singapore?
