Upscale Bread Talk

So here I am thinking that hey there's a new kid in town to rival Bread Talk, only to find that Bread Society is owned by them as well. Don't get me wrong I love Bread Talk. In fact we all have our favorites. I am a huge fan of their otah buns until they were discontinued. X, the Floss buns & The Girl, their bread with sunflower seeds. It's such a staple for us.

When I first came across Bread Society in the basement of Ion Orchard, I fell in love immediately. You gotta love a chandelier at a boulangerie & wow, reasonable prices for the bread. Finally a competitor to Bread Talk. Well apparently not. They had hired a Japanese consultant chef & created a different concept.

Bread Society offers artisanal European pastries but apart from the occasional croissant that The Girl picked up, I'd rather go for the likes of thai green curry, smoked chicken cheese & tom yam seafood. How to resist.

Not that we are giving up Bread Talk anytime soon. It's nice to have another option.

I'm partial towards the curry chicken & spicy pork floss.
