There’s no place better to satisfy your sweet tooth than Canele Patisserie Chocolaterie. With outlets at Robertson Walk, Shaw Centre and Paragon in the downtown area, this excellent part chocolaterie and part patisserie, is the place to get your fix for all things sweet. Think French confections, pastries and enjoyable chocolates. The creative mind behind Canele, award-winning pastry chef Pang Kok Keong, has been crowned Pastry Chef of the Year at the World Gourmet Summit Awards of Excellence in 2007, 2009 and 2010.
Famed for their exotic and exciting variety of macarons, cakes and desserts, Canele is the perfect place for those who love to experiment with new flavours. Leave behind preconceived notions about what chocolate and desserts should taste, feel and look like. Instead, expect to be titillated by the rich selection of flavours such as the unpredictable tastes of lemon tart and green tea. Pierre Herme, the father of macarons, has even complimented the texture of Canele’s macarons when he was here for the 2008 World Gourmet Summit.
Desserts aside, this joint is also a great place for main course meals as well. The soups here are highly recommended, and are matched only by their sandwiches, pastas and wholesome stews like the braised beef in red wine.
Modelled after famous patisseries in France, Canele also features customised cakes and tailored menus for catering, which is rare for a pastry shop. Open till 1am on weekends, Canele is also the perfect place to end off a good night, or to top up energy levels before ducking back into the clubs for another round of partying. Be it delectable desserts, savoury main courses or just a simple cup of coffee, every dining experience at Canele is an affair to remember.
