Do.Main bakery @ Tanjong Katong – Bon Appetit!
Do.Main bakery – the French bakery cafe helmed by French pastry Chef Fredric Deshayes who apprenticed at Lenôtre Paris, opened the first Lenôtre boutique in Seoul,work with Pierre Hermé and Christophe Michalak in Plaza Athénée.

The Story Behind The Name Do.Main Bakery
Playing with the words “Do. = Dough” which is the foundation of the products here and “Main” which means “Hands” in French, Do.Main Bakery pays tribute to the two most important basic main elements in baking.
“DoMain” also refers to a prominent place or home and “Do” is about making whilst “Main” is about being the core. Do.Main Bakery is a place where Chef Freddo does his work of art using dough as the main ingredient to make the products by hand here.
Do.Main Bakery joined the many eateries along the stretch of Tanjong Katong Road, the setting is simple and comfortable, big see-through glass panel allows you a full glance of all the activities going on in the kitchen. Take a closer look and you will realise there is no stove or induction cooker in the kitchen, all food arriving on your table are all oven-baked, amazing right?
Baker’s Pizza “Thin Crust”
The crust was bread base and soft with slight crisp exteriorly, something unique and we all like it if compared to those pizzas from those pizza chains.
“Tartiflette” baked rate potatoes with Reblochon Cheese and bacon $16
Reblochon cheese is soft and has a nutty taste, it is an essential ingredient of Tartiflette, with the cream, potatoes, bacon and onions, this simple oven-baked dish was alluring and a hightlight of the night.
Cassolette of Bourguignon snails, TomatoFondue and toasted bread $16
This escargot was presented on a bed of tomato fondue with herb and pareslry butter flavoured seasoning. Do i need to elaborate further the palatability of this amphibious creature?

The sour dough toast bread was a good match with the Octopus Romesco salad, simple and unpretentious.
Charcuterie platter: Duck pistachio pates, pork rillettes $20
Charcuterie Platter of duck & pistachio pate, pork rilette and Kurobuta ham with assorted artisanal breads, go with a good wine and you will probably finding yourselves in nirvana.
Kurobuta Ham, assorted artisanal breads

There is plenty of heartiness in this vegetable lasagna, in between the layer of homemade lasagna sheets are cheese and sauces to give a rich and flavourful to excite the tastebuds.
Lemon cream tart $5
Nice lemon tart with well balance in lime taste and tart flavour, simple and satifafying, a perennial favourite of us.
Eclairs salted caramel or chocolate $5
The Eclairs crust was not the melt-in-your-mouth texture that we accustomed to from most of the pastry shops. If you like the “bite feel”, you will probably love the Eclairs here. Not overly sweet and savory.
Royale chocolate cake $8
We are dreadful of pastries saturated with sugar and allows the sweetness to mask the original flavour of the cake. Fortunately, Royale chocolate cake here was nicely baked and not excessive sweet to make you worry about the waistline. Rich and savoury chocolate is a welcoming dessert for the night.
