At a time when electronic person-to-person introductions and food delivery apps are at the touch of our fingertips, Tiong Bahru Bakery still believes in “celebrating neighborhoods” and that means taking time for the face-to-face connection with people that matter. For the first time ever, the Home of the Handmade Croissant shares the 4,000 sq ft space with internationally award-winning beauty brands Browhaus and Strip at a convenient location in the Central Business District area.
It could not have come at a better time as Spa Esprit Group’s founder, Cynthia Chua, states that “The all-new Funan has provided us an opportunity to sync well-loved brands for a more valuable experience than ever before. We want to continue to be the nexus of creativity, culture and conversation.” The 90-seater bakery is the second outlet to serve the full hot food menu in addition to their popular 100% French flour-and-butter bakes, exclusive coffee blend and superfood treats, after their Raffles City branch.
Being part of Spa Esprit Group’s very first multi-concept without barriers, TBB Funan can be accessed from any entry point on the fourth floor shared with Browhaus and Strip. Captivating images on LED screens greet customers with the newest and latest at the bakery. Soft leather armchairs, warm lighting and communal tables make for easy conversation amongst friends and colleagues.
Following TBB tradition, every new outlet offers exclusives in store for a limited time. At TBB Funan, they have savory porkcast pie on TBB’s signature French butter croissant crust. The diamond-shaped creation adds a flaky and crunchy texture to pork cheek rendang done local-style in homemade rempah or intensely flavored spice paste (read: not poured from a store-bought readymade pack) at $8.90++ each. Not one but two exclusives mark this grand opening of TBB Funan. The best-selling viennoisserie, kouign amann, takes on an Asian-flavored spin inspired by the Chinese fried doughnut or ham chim peng. It is intensified with five-spice butter and sprinkled with black and white sesame seeds on the Breton cake which literally means “cake-butter” at $5++ each that’s available from now till 10 September 2019. There’s also Unity tea blend that’s farm fresh, and made up of ginger, pandan, turmeric and chili ($6/$6.20++ each) which are locally grown by Edible Garden City. “Unity” was chosen to signify the three concepts under one roof for the first time in Singapore.
The Green Ducklings at The Concourse on Beach Road is a homely bakery & café set up by two “green ducklings”. After 4 years in the industry, they find that working in the F&B field is “not that well paid” with many restrictions to being creative, and wanted to start their own business.
Why the name “green ducklings”? It refers to the ducklings principle of being adventurous with little to fear, even though they may still be ‘wobbling around’. They are considered young in this industry but they strongly believe in “we never try we never know”.
Many of the items sold is made fresh daily, from cakes & pastries to sandwiches! Much effort is put into many small details in the shop but they believe in being affordable allows people to enjoy to a further extend! Hence, they do not impose GST and service charges.
Pop by for their creative menu from Unagi Sandwich, Century Egg Pasta, Carrot Cake with Nacho Cheese to Smoked Salmon Cake!

In 1872, a young man named Balage Porolis de Silva embarked on a journey into the world of luxury. He set up a jewellery boutique along High Street, Singapore, presenting not only the finest gems, but also serving the best Ceylon tea to his customers. Hailing from Sri Lanka where having tea is a daily ritual for relaxation and enjoyment, he wanted to enhance his customers’ appreciation of jewellery with tea.
Gradually, the B.P. de Silva brand name grew in reputation and became synonymous with artistry and craftsmanship. The family continues to extend the very same values and philosophy of fine jewellery into tea, elevating tea beyond a simple beverage to a premium gift. This led to the creation of The 1872 Clipper Tea Co., whose name pays tribute to the historic Clipper ships that raced to carry chests of the freshest teas to all corners of the world, at the same time acknowledging the year they planted their roots in Singapore.
Today, The 1872 Clipper Tea blends are widely appreciated for its consistency in quality, signature aroma and refined taste.

In addition to these fine creations, grocery products, sandwiches, salads and quiches are also available.
In 1964, Eric Kayser was born into a family of professional bakers – his great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all traditional French bakers. Naturally, he quickly realized his calling for baking and at a young age of 18, became a companion of the prestigious Tour de France of baking for five years. Then, he bacame a bakery trainer for the Institut National de la Boulangeri Patisserie (INBP) for nearly ten years.
