Glacé - Fine Japanese Pastries @ Marina Bay Link Mall, Singapore

Thursday, November 28, 2013



Started in 2008, Glacé aims to bring the best of Japan's cakes and pastries to Singapore. Since its inception, Chef Tomoko and her staff have been passionately in getting all the pastries taste like they would in Japan and always believe in using ingredients of highest quality without any preservatives.

Highly recommended by a close friend, I bought an assortment of these patisserie cakes. When I tried the cakes, I was amazed and beyond words. The cakes were freshly prepared. The taste was light and delicious, and the texture was soft and smooth.

I enjoyed the cakes immensely and I kept wanting more. Before I knew it, all the cakes were gone. This is the patisserie brand that you should go for. You should try it too.

Mille-feuille or "thousand leaves" or Napoleon (see photo above) is a pastry of French origin. The mille-feuille traditionally is made up of three layers of puff pastry, alternating with cream, whipped cream or jam. The strawberry mille-feuille (photo above) alternates with sponge cake, and pastry cream with cut strawberries. The top is glazed with jam, chocolate crisp and strawberry. At one bite, I fell love with this cake. The cream was light and the crispy mille-feuille was delightful. The cake tasted sweet like first love - sweet, pure and innocent. The entire experience was so unforgettable. (Food rating: 4.5/5)



The Othello is made from soft chocolate sponge cake with delicious chocolate cookie cream. The cake was launched in 2010 and has been popular since. I love the way the soft sponge cakes are vertically placed and glazed with chocolate cookie cream. The cream was light and addictive. I could not stop taking bite after bite. I think Chef Tomoko has hit home run by setting up such an excellence pastry shop in Singapore. (Food rating: 4.5/5)



The original Rare Cheese Mango is made of fresh mango cubes that goes extremely well with the mango puree. The cake has alternate layers of cheese and sponge cake. The sponge cake was light and puffy which was an extreme delight. The cheese was aromatic and dense, not heavy. It did not get overbearing over a period of time. The two layers combined made this cake very addictive. I could not stop eating. The fresh mango cubes were sweet. The cake has a light mango taste with a focus on the cheese cake. (Food rating: 4.5/5)



The Tiramisu Green Tea cake is made of alternate layers of green tea sponge cake and mascarpone cheese. The cake is then sprinkled with Japan-imported green tea powder which is not so sweet but extremely enjoyable. The cake is topped with a small slice of mille-feuille. I love the blend of green tea and mascarpone cheese. The mille-feuille was soft and crispy. Tiramisu Green Tea, you are now in my list of must-have cakes. (Food rating: 4.5/5)



Banaan Chocolate looks almost like a slice of swiss cake. The dark bitter chocolate sponge cake is rolled with a slice of sweet banana in a layer of fresh cream, thus bringing out out the natural sweetness of the fruit to near perfection. What I love about this cake is how the fresh cream also has the subtle banana flavour. As I attacked the cake closer to the banana slice, the sweet banana aroma got stronger and stronger. This is indeed a delicious cake that you must also try this. (Food rating: 4/5)



Mango Rhapsody is made up of various layer of cakes. The cake starts with a delicious almond tart base, followed by pear slices and custard cream and finally topped with fresh mangoes. What I like about the cake is the tart base, tofu-like sponge cake and the cut mangoes. The different layers were like different surprises. (Food rating: 3/5)



Strawberry Souffle has been Glace's best seller since 2008. The soufflé was so delicious topped with the freshest strawberries. I like the soft delicious, yet not overwhelming soufflé. (Food rating: 3/5)
