Few of us can afford a full omakase meal at chef Tetsuya Wakuda’s award winning Japanese fine diner Waku Ghin – which makes the opening of Patisserie Platine, his first patisserie in Singapore, all that much sweeter. Here, you’ll finally be able to enjoy Waku Ghin’s exquisite desserts – these are crafted by the same pastry team as at Waku Ghin, led by veteran pastry chef Yasushi Ishino – without having to go for an expensive dinner at the main restaurant.

Not sure where to start when faced with a menu of eighteen different handmade pastries and petit cakes? Here are four of our favourites.

Pattiserie Platine

1. Ghin Cheesecake (lemon cheese mousse, lemon curd), $12

This dainty cheesecake, complete with snow-white chocolate feather on top and refreshing lemon curd centre, is created with a Japanese touch – it’s lighter, less sweet, but still with a full-bodied flavour. We love that it doesn’t leave a cloying aftertaste.

2. Seasonal Fruit Tart (fresh fruit, almond cream), $12

Patisserie Platine uses fresh fruits from Europe and Japan, so you can trust that this fruit tart is basically a basket of fruit divided into a single portion, and worth every dollar. The glaze is also less sweet than the regular fruit tarts’ so this is the ideal guilt-free indulgence.

3. Coconut Mousse with Mango and Passion Fruit, $10

The delicate coconut and mango mousse dome breaks apart at a tap of the spoon. And this isn’t just a pretty dessert either – this is one delicious confectionary with light hints of passion fruit complementing the tangy taste of mango. This is one of our absolute favourites.

4. Macaron Selection, $25 for a box of 12

Specially crafted to fit a single bite, this Macaron allows you to savour all the flavours at one go – who knew that rum raisin, raspberry, chocolate, pistachio, coffee, passion fruit and mango would go so well together?
