Do.Main in Tanjong Katong is like any one of the ubiquitous little bakeries / cafes in Paris or any French town, big or small.

The inner space is long and narrow but cosy. We can hang out here comfortably.

I was invited to sample the breads and savoury French dishes at Do.Main.

This simple tart is very personal to Chef Frederic as this was the first recipe he learnt at the renowned LeNôtre patisserie in France when it was still owned by the LeNôtre family. The tarts at Do.Main are all French-style.

All the breads and pastries are made in house at Do.Main by Chef-owner Frederic with his team.

Chef Frederic graduated from "Ecole LeNôtre" culinary school and famed patisserie. Frederic also had the opportunity to hone his skills working with French Master Pâtissier and celebrity chef Christophe Michalak at Hotel Athenee Plaza in Paris. Frederic have been in Singapore for nearly a decade and loves it here.

Together with chefs Christophe Megel (of A-munition F & B Consultancy) and Stephane Istel (Chef-owner, Bar-Roque Bar & Grill), Frederic aims to share home-styled French classics with Singaporeans. We are indeed fortunate here in Singapore as Chef Christophe shared that old school, classic French breads and pastries are getting harder to find in France.

Tanjong Katong Road is a rather long road, so to spot Do.Main Bakery, look out for this Caltex petrol station. The bakery is just across the road from this station.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
