Hot on the heels of its popular salted egg yolk croissant, French-inspired patisserie Antoinette is rolling out its new chili crab croissant and scallion arlette on Mar 7 at Penhas, and from Mar 14 at Mandarin Gallery and Sofitel So.
Drawing inspiration from local hawker favorites, the chili crab croissant ($7.50) is another of Chef Pang’s creations and it has a special savory-spicy tomato sauce crab filling made in house. While the croissant is a meal in itself, the scallion arlette ($3.50) is more of a tea-time snack. It’s a French rendition of the traditional Chong You Bing (or scallion pancake), a popular Chinese street food, and features crisp and savory with puff pastry.
We have also been told that there may be more locally-inspired pastries coming up, so watch this space for updates.
