There’s just something about desserts and delicate pastries that just seem to make our days better, regardless of when and where we get them. Known for our love of food and all things delicious, our society is also equally famous for being a vibrant tapestry made up of multiple cultures. Here to bring our inclusive experience up another level is GAMO, a new café boasting the finest Muslim-friendly bakes.
Noticing a lack of fine cake and pastry for the halal crowd in Singapore, award-winning pastry chef Shah Sarifi founded GAMO with a vision to provide more inspiring experiences for our diverse ethnic mix, as well as an added touch of culinary curiosity to the local scene.
Priding themselves on exquisite creations made using only the best of ingredients, the team’s carefully curated Japanese and French-inspired treats tap into the heritage and quality of Elle & Vire butter, matcha powder sourced directly from Kyoto, chocolate from the historic Cacao Barry, and French flour of the highest calibre: the Grand Mouslin De Paris T55.
From their range of beautiful and irresistible bakes, look out for highlights like their umami Kani Mentaiko Croissant, generously filled and topped with sashimi-grade Japanese crabstick, individually blow-torched for maximum flavour, and Strawberry Mochi Tart, a unique and fun tart filled with strawberry curd and pink guava puree, topped with fresh handmade mochi for that extra bite and contrast.
GAMO is also the first Muslim-friendly bakery in Singapore to make the Pain au Suisse, buttery and decadent with a smattering of chocolate chips – you wouldn’t want to miss out!
To complete the experience, they offer two different coffee brews for coffee lovers to have their pick. There’s a nutty medium-dark roast that pairs perfectly with their buttery pastries, and their signature Ichigo coffee, with a brighter, fruity flavour that carries notes of strawberry.
