Food lovers all over the island have been busy checking out the new restaurants over at Marina Bay Sands and also at Resorts World Sentosa.
Since April this year, SweetSpot, a hotel bakery from Marina Bay Sands, has received quite good reviews from dessert and pastry lovers. So it's about time we went down to check out the standards.
If this is your first time to Marina Bay Sands, Sweet Spot is situated on the Lobby level of the hotel portion of Marina Bay Sands. You will have to walk all the way from Tower 1 to Tower 3 as it is situated right at Tower 3.
The sweets and pastry items are all displayed neatly on the shelves.
The macarons here are said to be one of the best in Singapore. I still don't know whom they employed to make the macarons, but my taste buds tell me they are on par with those from France.
(EDIT: Read from this week's 8 Days that the pastry chef here is from Venezuela and has been making pastry items there for 20 years)
These tiny and cute Financiers displayed on the display as they are out of space.
A beautiful Strawberry tart.
And more cakes. To be fair, we didn't try their cake items on that day. But judging from the standards of their other items, we believe the cakes should be good.
Blueberry pastry with butter crossaint.
So Sparkling or Still had a sparkling mineral water and 2 freshly brewed coffee.
We had these Macarons: (Clockwise from top left) Rasberry with Dark Chocolate, Green Tea, Strawberry, Lemon, Hazelnut, Pistachio. All of them were good. Not overly sweet, and the macaron shells were crispy yet a bit chewy. My fav are the Hazelnut and Rasberry with Dark Chocolate. Find the Lemon one a bit too artificial in taste. At S$2.00 per macaron, they are also one of the more expensive macaron in Singapore.
The 3 Financiers we had (left to right) are the almond, rasberry and pistachio. They are tiny yet very delicate and tasty. Out of the 3, I love the one with the rasberry. (S$1.80 each)
Aren't these gorgeous? Juicy ripe blueberry pastry and in the background, an Apple. Even though the blueberry looks better, the apple was the one which tasted better. But both are actually quite good.
Do note they have NO seats, so expect to stand and lean on these designer stands inside the cafe.
If you are trying to hunt down some of the best pastry items, do come here and try their macarons. Oh yes, they also sell their in-house chocolates too.
