As a living element, this yeast is taken care of everyday with the baker feeding it by adding water and flour to balance the fermentation.
The folks from Lab SG have a new dessert and bakery project a few doors from their mainstay at Jalan Pisang, Sinseh: The Grocery.
Occupying a small shophouse half the size of their restaurant, the intimate space is minimalist yet cozy with whitewashed concrete walls, wooden shelf displays of trinkets like retro cookie jars and cooking memorabilia, and a corner dedicated to fancy cutlery and artisan baking goods for sale. But don't expect to get too cushy because apart from a table and a few chairs outside, there aren't any dine-in options.
Apart from the usual croissants and baguettes and focaccia, the in-house bakery here does hearty bagel sandwiches with fillings like salmon and dill, turkey bacon and egg, grilled cheese and grilled vegetable. Desserts include death-by-carbs option bagel ice cream sandwich with homemade vanilla ice cream and fruit, nut and chocolate chips. Just like their predecessors at Lab SG, they're pretty big on dessert drinks like the earl grey float that sees a dollop of their home made early grey ice cream on a root beer or Coke, virgin lychee mojitos and caramel apple fizz.

The Singapore branch of famous American-Eclectic New York City bakery and restaurant with Southwestern accents has recently opened.
Clinton Street Baking Company, Singapore is comfortable and cosmopolitan. In the morning, it smells like blueberry muffins and fresh ground coffee. Throughout the day, there is the scent of buttermilk fried chicken and vanilla waffles, pancakes and maple butter. All day and night, it sounds like Latin-southern-blue note jazz with a New York vibe that you can feel the second you walk in.
When they began, Neil and Dede were a small wholesale baking company with a storefront and a few loyal neighborhood customers who lingered over coffee and muffins and tapped out on their laptop keys (before smartphones were born).
These days, most folks know Neil’s pancakes are voted best in the city, but it’s his savory roots that ground the menu and make them proud. People call it “comfort food,” but what they are dishing out is American Classics made with the highest quality ingredients, locally sourced -- whenever possible -- with lots of love (and butter).
In Good Comany Café will introduce Plain Vanilla’s first extended menu beyond their famous cupcakes and small bakes. This includes breakfast foods such as homemade granola, fruit and yoghurt bowls with walnut crumble and agave nectar; speciality grilled sandwiches such as Prosciutto & Truffle on Ciabatta and Watercress Egg Aioli on homemade Brioche. Almost everything on the menu is made in small batches and made from scratch – from the artisanal breads to the aioli, tapenade, jam and chutney, to the cakes and pastries; it is Plain Vanilla’s philosophy to present heartfelt comfort food made in the philosophy of home-cooking. They focus on refining classic, familiar flavours, eschewing artificial ingredients and preservatives, relying instead on the natural flavours of the best and freshest ingredients.
The 800 sq. ft. café sits 20 people comfortably around communal tables designed by Nathan Yong - of FOLKS FURNITURE and co-founder of GRAFUNKT – in collaboration with the IGC design team. Envisioned as a little botanical oasis nestled in the heart of the store, the café is capped by lush ferns and greenery from local florist Triceratops.
At a glance, the synergy between In Good Company and its collaborators – Plain Vanilla Bakery, illustrator and artist Kuanth, Hoiming, Magpie, Math Paper Press, Nathan Yong, and Triceratops – seems as much about sharing a like-minded philosophy as the coming together of a creative clan. The idea of collaboration and creative community-building is important for In Good Company; it is a company philosophy that is embodied in its very name.
