Bakerzin Gardens by the Bay Food Review
Bakerzin first started its business as a café in 1998 specialising in patisseries and cakes. They have six outlets to date. Our family of six went for dinner at Bakerzin Gardens by the Bay. It was my first time dining at Bakerzin even though they have established more than 20 years in Singapore.
We dined as early as 5 pm, so there was no customer at this time. We sat at a cosy corner to look at Bakerzin’s menu. There was a wide selection of main courses to choose from local cuisine to western dining.
As a starter, Barley Salad (S$12.50) was very appetising. It reminded me of the Burmese Salad, Lephet Thoke (Fermented Tea Leaf Salad) which I have tried once. This salad is a must-order food, as the sauce and the taste are unique.
Kids Mini Meatballs (S$ 9.90) was for my little niece. I have never taken a fancy on tomato sauce. Eating too much tomato sauce makes me repulsive. I tasted the food nonetheless but nothing special. Even the meatballs were not tasty.
Chix Curry Rice (S$16.50) must be avoided at all cost if you are expecting the same standard of the authentic local curry. The overly sweet curry sauce was another failure to this dish. The ingredient was miserably little too.
My brother ordered a Bakerzin Burger (S$17.90). The burger was small, and so I did not try. He remarked the taste to be so-so. Hence, I guessed the standard was just decent.
I did not try New York Coney Island Dog (S$18.90) either. It was a hot dog with meat sauce and some potato wedges.
The first thing that came to my mind about Thai Pork Rice (S$17.90) was the amount of sugar added onto the food. It was too sweet. I did not think it was delicious at all for all that I had tasted was only sugar.
Voila, here came my food! This Salmon Penne (S$18.90) was the most delicious main course of all. The creamy sauce was savoury and left me wanting for more with each bite. No regret.
Finally, the long-awaited slice of Pumpkin Chiffon (S$ 5.00) came in anticipation which cakes should be a speciality of Bakerzin. Moreover, that was also the “Cake of the Month”. Indeed, it contained the pumpkin taste, but unfortunately, it was again too sugary to indulge in the pumpkin cake. It had somewhat failed in my expectation.
Chocolate Cake with Vanilla (S$ 8.80) was an expensive dessert not worth spending the money for dessert enjoyment. It was attractive to look at but not delightful to eat. The taste was not distinctive and yet, sweetness once again overpowered the flavour.
I would not recommend Bakerzin Gardens by the Bay as the standard of the food was not high. The chef had added too much sugar in many of their dishes. Even their signature desserts failed to make the mark. However, we were pleased with the excellent customer service. The friendly waitress informed us of the promotions and gently reminded us at times so that we would not miss out the offer.
