Lady M Confections @ Marina Square


Hey guys!

I wanted to blog about a confectionery that my boyfriend had recommended to me and yup, it’s called Lady M. Apparently it’s a confectionery originated from New York City and I believe the Singapore stores are its only overseas outlets.

Shop interior. There is a takeaway booth at the back and you don’t have to queue for that!

We went to the Marina Square branch (the other is at One Fullerton) yesterday after attending my niece’s baby shower and we spotted a long queue at the entrance when we were there! It must be really good, I thought. We waited for about 20 minutes before we finally got a table. With a budget of $30 (which I subsequently increased to $40 lol), we ordered two of their signature cakes and a pot of Earl Grey Tea.

I thought it’s quite important to mention that Lady M serves free iced water! And it comes in this bigger-than-usual good quality plastic cup. To me, offering free iced water is the first step to breeding goodwill among customers but restaurants here rarely do it nowadays.

Our pot of Earl Grey Tea (S$5 without taxes) was enough to serve 2. It was very fragrant, rich and made of very high quality tea leaves. Highly recommended!

Their cakes are layered with “no less than twenty paper-thin handmade crêpes…with ethereal light pastry cream”. In other words, they are America’s kueh lapis 😛

Boyfriend ordered their most popular crepe cake – Vanilla Mille Crepes (S$8/slice without taxes). I tried it and it’s really not bad. The vanilla frosting isn’t too strong and you’d crave for more with every bite.

Side view. Look at how creamy it is!

As a green tea lover, I went with Green Tea Mille Crepes (S$8.50/slice without taxes) which is 70% covered with green tea powder – on top and infused into every layer.

Side view – Made of very layers of thin, soft, green tea powdered crepe. For hardcore green tea fans only.

The crepes fall out very easily when sliced, making my plate very messy 😦

I’m not a huge cake fan to begin with, so going to a confectionery didn’t really excite me. But their mille crepes were a refreshing change from the usual layer cakes. I didn’t enjoy the Green Tea Mille Crepes as much as the Vanilla one though because I felt that the former is a little too green tea overdose? It’s not bad at the first bite but you’d get sick of it gradually. However you may love it if you’re a big green tea lover.

We still had some time to burn after having our cakes so we went through their soup menu. Both my boyfriend and I love mushroom soup so we got ourselves a bowl of Vanilla Mushrooms to share. Vanilla?? Interesting. But I’m afraid nothing in there is vanilla at all.

If you’re not in the mood for cakes, they have other food alternative as well! (I actually misread “Fig Tart” as “Big Fart” the very first time I looked at this menu lol)

A bowl of Vanilla Mushroom (S$10 without taxes) is enough for 2 people if you’re not very hungry. But it’s really nice so I regret sharing it with boyfriend.

Soup made of Shimeiji mushrooms, white truffle essence and cheesy croutons. It’s totally meat-free thus it’s also a vegetarian-friendly appetiser. What stood out on my taste bud about this soup is the white truffle essence. It really enhanced the taste of the soup!

The egg york caught us by surprise! We didn’t know there was egg in it since this isn’t mentioned on the menu. Broke the poached egg and mixed it with the soup! It was a brilliant combination!

Happy boy finally satisfied his craving.

Perhaps I’m really not a fan of pastries but I personally feel that their crepe cakes are overrated. I may be wrong since boyfriend loved it so much. Thus I would come back again but obviously not for the cakes. I would for the mushroom soup! It’s honestly one of the best I’ve had and I will definitely not share it with anyone LOL. I would love to try their starters as well probably when I’m ready to splurge again coz they are pretty pricey.

My total damage was S$37.10 including 10% government tax and 7% service charge. Service was satisfactory as the staff were very friendly and welcoming.

I went back again on 18 June as part of a plan for my boyfriend’s birthday celebration and had Red Velvet cake. They seemed to have added new items on their menu coz I didn’t see Red Velvet on my first visit.
