Centre Ps, which started operations in 2007, was founded by the award-winning Chef Patissier, Steven Ong and veteran luxury products marketeer/retailer Tan Kim Boon.
Tucked away in a little corner in the rustic Tiong Bahru estates, Centre PS is is very difficult to locate for a first time visitor. Rachel and I spent almost an hour walking around the estates in the blazing hot sun before we were finally greeted by the loud pink decors that don the shopfront of this little bakery.
The pastry on offer include cakes, eclairs, macarons and more. I am not a fan of sweet food, but Rachel is and she was behaving like an annoying little chipmunk on helium while musing over which items to order.
We would have ordered more, but the pastries were not cheap. The eclairs cost S$5 each and a box of five assorted macarons cost S$10, about double the price of a mainstream pastry restaurant like Bakerzin. Here are pictures of Rachel going gaga over the eclair:
The lemon is oozing!
Caught in the act.
Getting all messy with her eclair like a baby.
Overall, I did enjoy the pastries. They are better than average, but the inconvenient location and slightly expensive prices are deterrants from me going back again. Reading the reviews on hungrygowhere, their regulars seem to be people with extreme sweet tooth who won’t be deterred by distance and price to get their sweet fix. Not really the case for me, though I can’t say the same for Rachel. 🙂
