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.
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.
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 😛
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.
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.
