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.
