Founded in August 2010, Flor Patisserie is a patisserie and cafe that serves pretty Japanese dessert pastries and confectioneries, made using French baking techniques. Named for the Portuguese word for 'flower', though pronounced in Japanese as ‘fu-ro-ru’, Flor Patisserie is the brainchild of Chef Yamashita Masataka, with a philosophy of baking with only the freshest, good quality ingredients sourced from Japan, Belgium, France, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore.

Ambience at Flor Patisserie evokes a minimalist zen. The bright spot lit place is spacious, in simple white and wood colours, with artwork from local artists adorning the walls. Hanging potted plants and wooden tree stems lend a natural feel, while the sturdy wooden furniture is wide and spacious. They even have a small store display in front, along with the attractive dessert counter display. Well suited for relaxing.

Service at Flor Patisserie is excellent. Partially self-service, as ordering and payment is performed over the counter, but staff do serve orders to your table. I note they display good product knowledge, able to describe the various pastries and confectioneries, as well as offer recommendations. Relatively young, but they're engaging and proactive, willingly offering information when they overheard our queries.

Food at Flor Patisserie is all about desserts, which are fusion Japanese French in nature. Hand crafted fresh daily using only premium ingredients, each piece is an attractive work of art, yet packs bold flavour, and is light on the palate. Well executed consistently too. Chef Heidi Tan, a student of Chef Yamashita Masataka and co-founder of Flor Patisserie, now heads up the kitchen, and carries on his legacy. Portions are sized for individuals. Prices are slightly higher than elsewhere, due to the premium quality. Budget about SGD $9 per person for a dessert here.

The Matcha Latte (SGD $6) has a bold and robust earthy flavour, made with premium matcha green tea powder. Thick and rich in texture, warm and comforting like a hug.

The Cheese Zucotto (SGD $12) is a baked cheese mousse cake, made with Australian cream cheese. Soft and light and airy, with a rich smooth creamy texture, it has a delicate sweet cheesy flavour, with a fluffy feeling on the palate. Good!

The Ice Cheese Tart Earl Grey (SGD $3.60) features a base of almond cookie and cream cheese, firm with a crunch, sweet salty in flavour. Infused with earl grey tea, which lends an earthy note to this dessert tart. Unusual contrast of sweet against earthy though.

The Waguri Mille-Feuille (SGD $6.90) is a light, airy dessert cake. The crisp, flaky puff pastry layers sandwich a filling of light butter sponge cake, airy pastry cream, and sweet chantilly cream. Decorated with strands of earthy nutty chestnut cream and sweet Japanese chestnuts that are tender to bite. This beautiful creation takes a labourious 3 days to make!

The Mango Pie (SGD $7.20) features fresh, large chunks of juicy sweet mangoes, piled high on a base of rich, dense almond butter cake, coated in a crumbly puff pastry, topped with a single blueberry. Nicely fruity sweet, I absolutely loved how light and enticing this was.

The Chitose Strawberry Shortcake (SGD $9.50) is light and airy like a cloud. The soft Genoise sponge cake is layered with sweet chantilly cream and premium juicy Chitose strawberries, with a garnish of crunchy chocolate balls for added texture. Lovely dessert cake, though it's expensive. Good!
