Délifrance offers Pizza with a unique French twist

Standard

Well-loved French café, Délifrance, adds three new variants to its one-of-a-kind Pizza Baguette menu. I’m not sure about you but Délifrance is what ignited my love for French baguette. The brand is possibly the pioneer in Singapore to popularise French pastry (I loved their croissants endlessly). The Pizza Baguette is where France meets Italy; it is essentially French baguettes with pizza toppings fused with mozzarella cheese. I call it the French pizza.

The existing Pizza Baguette menu – which includes the Vegetable Pizza Baguette and the Tahiti Pizza Baguette – sees the addition of Hawaiian, Spicy Chicken Delight and Tuna variants. The Hawaiian Pizza Baguette comes with juicy pineapple chunks, chicken ham and chicken sausages; the Spicy Chicken Delight comes with fresh capsicums, marinated chicken and pineapple chunks; and the Tuna Pizza Baguette comes with light flaky tuna, mushrooms, capsicum and onions.

Pizza Baguettes are available a la carte for $5.80 per piece, or in a Set Meal at $9.90 per person. The meal includes a Pizza Baguette, soup of the day and a choice of drink. Couples can enjoy a Set Meal for 2, which includes a Pizza Baguette, a choice of Chicken Rendang Baked Rice or Pesto Chicken & Mushroom Baked Macaroni, and 2 drinks at $18.90. All products are halal certified.

Happy Avenue Online Bakery

Happy Avenue is established with the objective of bringing happiness to others in the form of home-baked treats.

Owner-baker Judy started baking as a form of leisure pursuit, who later decided to take up baking and frosting courses professionally and start an online business to sell her bakes after receiving numerous compliments from those who’ve tried her cupcakes.

Happy Avenue has sold over 10,000 cupcakes thus far, and orders have to be made way in advance due to overwhelming popularity.

The moist and chocolaty Signature Valrhona Triple Dark is the best seller amongst the cupcakes, and also a personal favourite of mine, made of dark chocolate cake, dark chocolate chips, and topped with dark chocolate ganache, all made out of quality Valrhona dark chocolate.

The lovely pastel-coloured mooncake collection comprises four flavours –Cranberry Cream Cheese, Yuzu Lemon, Coffee Chocolate and Classic Seed Melon Lotus Paste.

Coffee Chocolate Snowskin Mooncake

The Coffee Chocolate Snowskin Mooncake kind of brings back memories of an old childhood coffee candy, “Kopiko”, if anyone still remembers its existence. The sweetness of the coffee-infused lotus paste supersedes the bitterness often associated with coffee. Molten chocolaty goodness ensues from the puncturing of the chocolate-filled sphere in the epicentre of the mooncake.

Cranberry Cream Cheese

The mooncakes veer slightly high on the sweetness Richter scale, but not sickeningly sweet. It is unchallenging for those with a sweet tooth to pop multiple portions of these like oversized candies.

Classic Seed Melon Lotus Paste Snowskin Mooncake

Strict traditionalists who are fans of Hello Kitty but at the same time hankering for old-fashioned lotus paste mooncakes can go for the Classic Seed Melon Lotus Paste Snowskin Mooncake.
