I exceptionally love the strawberry shortcake served at Bakerzin as it tastes like those served in Japan - soft and fluffy vanilla cake base layered with fresh cream in between. Their cream is worth the rave, as while it does add sweetness to the cake, it is not overpowering and neither does it taste oily. It is extremely light and fresh - i would lick all the cream off my fork after i finish my cake! One slice costs approximately $8.
I love dining at Bakerzin as well. The other time i was there a year ago, I ordered their mushroom soup as well as crayfish pasta. Their mushroom soup tastes like authentic Italian mushroom soup - creamy with bits of fresh mushroom. Their crayfish pasta was pretty impressive as well! The tomato sauce had the taste of real tomatoes and not canned pasta sauce.
However, dining at Bakerzin is really pricey. I would recommend customers to buy their cakes instead of their main courses as their cakes are their signature!
Bakerzin is a homegrown chain of cafes with a focus on desserts. They are most known for their delectable selection of colorful cakes and macarons.
I have dined at their cafes a number of times and have always left satisfied. I like how their pasta is served piping hot and not too oily in just the right amount. They are also very generous with their ingredients. For example, if you order pasta with mushrooms, you can expect a bowl laden with them.
Their cafes have a comfortable and relaxing environment. This is especially so if you are lucky enough to secure a plush cushion seat. Their staff are also always polite and presentable.
And of course, after your main course, it would be a shame to leave without trying something from their dessert menu. I highly recommend their Sweet Pleasure cake. This piece of heaven is rich, crunchy and tastes like bliss.
Overall, I was really satisfied with my dining experience and will be back for more!
I've been a relatively frequent customer of Bakerzin for the past 5 years. The food has remained consistently good over the years. Much to my chagrin, the portions have been decreasing and the prices have been increasing (hence the 3-Star "value" rating)
The menu has gone through some changes, but thankfully my staunch favorites of Bratwurst Linguine with Balsamic Vinegar and Japanese Pork belly rice have remained. The Bratwurst linguine combines the smoky flavour from the German sausages with a subtle mix of sweet/spicy/sour from the chili and balsamic.
The pork belly rice is simple. Japanese rice, pork belly simmered in dark sauce and done to tender perfection. Garnished with coriander - which cuts through the fatty taste from the pork - this simple yet delicious dish somehow gives me the impression that they have a grandmother cooking this dish at the back in the kitchen.
Don't forget about the dessert either, Bakerzin's lauded forte. The Chocolate Amer ranks as one of my all-time favorites
Previously known as Baker's Inn, Bakerzin is well known for its freshly made French inspired artisinal bread and desserts. The success of Bakerzin has led them to expand into the cafe business, serving up excellent Italian food at several of their outlets.Their unique and experimental bread and pastry creations push the boundaries of taste, creativity and style, and you're almost always assured of getting tasty treats that look beautiful.
Ambience at Bakerzin is designed to look rustic and welcoming, with comfortable furniture, clean lines, high ceilings, and natural lighting. I like that staff at Bakerzin take the trouble to decorate the outlet according to seasonal themes in Singapore, especially for various festivals / celebrations.
Service at Bakerzin is decent. Staff are friendly and polite, and able to carry conversations. Bakerzin staff will accomodate certain change requests as well. I did feel they look slightly rushed at times. Good service, suitable enough for a cafe / bakery, but not memorable or outstanding.
Breads, pastries and desserts are the highlight at Bakerzin. Their bakery churns out freshly made products daily, and part of the appeal is being able to see the chefs / bakers at work. Flavours are superb, and prices are very reasonable for the quality you get. The menu in their cafe is rather limited, focusing more on sandwiches and pasta dishes, but the same high quality comes through in their food. Excellent, and I would highly recommend dining at Bakerzin!
The signature Bamboo Charcoal Bun With Pork Floss has a dark hued skin as a result of squid ink being used. The topping of pork floss is generous and tasty, and the overall taste of this bun is slightly different enough from other pork floss buns, which makes it stand out.
They have the sexiest looking Blueberry Danish I've ever seen! A crispy and flaky pastry diamond sits beneath a generous topping of fresh blueberries and custard, held together with a thin layer of jelly. Really good!
The creatively named Spicy Bloody Mary Soup is essentially a rich and thick tomato soup, with a slightly spicy kick from chili, granished with fresh herbs. While I loved the soup, I hated the square bowl it was served in, which made consuming it with a round spoon very difficult, as it leaves a lot of the soup stuck in the corners and sides.
The Mushroom Penne has a nice al-dente bite, and it's well coated with the savoury cream sauce. The trio of fresh field button mushrooms, shitake mushrooms and oyster mushrooms lend a meaty and earthy taste to the dish, while the cheese is sufficient enough to hold it together without being cloying or too thick. Excellent!
The signature Warm Chocolate Cake is absolutely lovely. An inviting chocolate cake that is moist and warm inside with chocolate that oozes out when cut into, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and garnished with fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and a strawberry sauce. Decadent, but I just couldn't stop eating it!
I went to the branch located at Tampines 1 and I wasn't very satisfied with my meal. The only commendable feature was the ambiance because it was in the mall with sofa seats so me and my friends were pretty much very comfortable.
The price was just not worth it to me. $16.90 for just a normal Aglio Olio which tasted average? It just does not make me any happier. Yes,there is free flow bread but I was not convinced because I know that Bakerzin is famous for their pastry and they should just stick to that instead. None of their meal greatly surprised me and I can get a even better tasting(& cheaper too) at Astons at only $7 anytime. Their macaroons are nice, so is their cakes. Their mushroom soup tasted too creamy and I know that they are trying to make their mushroom soup to be like a somewhat high classed above the normal ones but it upset my palette greatly.
It is still a great place to chill over coffee and cake but have your meal somewhere else please.
Went to Bakerzin on a few occasions with my friends for a meal to catch up. It’s a place that you can enjoy a long afternoon tea session with your friends without getting chased away. The staffs are friendly and attentive as they refill your cup of ice water without you requesting for it. I love their macaroons as it is not too sweet. Their main dishes are relatively flavourful, which you can try if you want to give yourself a treat as it is slightly expensive. I love their free flow bread with the vinegar! A must try I would say:)
On a recent one-for-one promotion for their crayfish pasta, I visited Bakerzin in Tampines. The deal seemed too good to be true - big chunky crayfish meat and pasta for only $13?? Turns out it WAS too good to be true.
The crayfish were tiny and the flesh was paltry. The pasta sauce was a very ordinary tomato sauce, and a bit too watery for my liking. I'm not sure the chef seriously considered whether the sauce went well with the crayfish, because I didn't think they paired well. Neither my companion nor I finished our pasta.
In my opinion, Bakerzin should stick to what they do best - cakes. I've had a few of their chocolate cakes before, and they are all very good.
Famous for its desserts, bakerzin is the perfect place to hang out if you want to chill with your fellow colleagues or friends! The light and airy New York cheesecake is one of the more popular cakes in the place, this cheesy goodness is topped with a coat of strawberry glaze giving it a subtle sweetness that melts in your mouth. For those of us who can’t stand the heavy-chessy feeling and would prefer something light and subtle, I highly recommend this cake. And to those chocoholics who can’t get enough of chocolate, you are in luck! Bakerzin’s Chocolate Amer may just send you straight to chocolate heaven. I don’t really see how anyone can find fault with this cake, we hardly bother to speak while eating this cake because we were too busy shoving it into our mouths!
Other than the dessert we also had the linguine with mushroom in cream. It’s nothing worth gushing about but I have to say that I was glad that it didn’t leave me feeling nauseated like how I usually feel after one whole plate of creamy pasta, the mushrooms again were juicy and fresh and the linguine smooth, tangy but cooked to optimum.
Call me a cheapo. But Bakerzin ALWAYS has awesome discount/promotions for their desserts! I never fail to look out for their promotion s whenever I past by their shop! Sometimes you get 50% OFF cheesecakes, other times they have credit card promotions as well as executive lunch promo! Be sure to check out this board they usually place outside their stores!
In my opinion, cakes at Bakerzin are too pretty to be eaten! All the slices of cakes look like they have been exquisitely baked.
My favourite has got to be their Chocolate Amer and warm chocolate cake! Just thinking about this makes me salivates! The warm chocolate cakes ooz out thick warm chocolate lava and together with a vanilia ice cream, IT’S A PERFECT MATCH!
As for the chocolate Amer, it is actually made up of different tiers of chocolate mousse and chocolate sponge cake. Definitely one of the best chocolate cakes I’ve tried. The size is just right for 1 person and it is not overly sweet unlike typical chocolate cakes which can make your throat feels uncomfortable after eating.
Bakerzin is a place suppose to be well known for desserts and their cakes. So i guess i must be one of the odd balls that went to Bakerzin not for cakes but for their main courses. Well, i must say that i probably should have stick to the cakes after seeing the reviews here.
I went to Bakerzin at Jurong Point, and the service staff was pretty professional. The staff may look young but they were well versed with their menu and had a smile when they greeted and attended to me.
But i was not that impressed by their main courses. I ordered their mushroom soup and their aglio olio. The mushroom soup had a very dark brown colour to it, and it did scared me a bit as i was not expected such a dark colour for the soup. The soup also had a rather thick layer of oil over it. In terms of taste, it did felt rich and i can feel bits of mushrooms in it, but i find the taste too oily and does not have much of a mushroom taste for me and there is a tinge of sourness. i do not really recommend this.
For the aglio olio, it was simply spicy spicy and spicy. This is definitely not for those who cannot tolerate spicy stuff. I now aglio olio is fried with some small chilli, but i was not expecting the whole chilli in it. The pasta is also a bit undercooked in some parts. A rather average dish in my opinion.
