It may be called Provence, but its European breads are given a Japanese twist. Owned by qualified Japanese baker Yoshiaki Matsumoto, 36, the bakery employs seven Japanese and local bakers in its kitchen behind. It uses high-quality wheat imported from France, and every loaf is measured, mixed, kneaded and finished by hand.
The Petite Provence at Central Shopping Centre has less variety – just cream & choco wasant and petit chocolat chocolat. Just 50 cents each and you can finish a single one in 2 bites.
The Provence at Holland Village has walnut raisins, chocolate twist, koshi an pan, milk bun, light pound cake, cheese bun, cream cheese seasame, walnut cream cheese and chocol & cream wassant.
Our advice is to call ahead and reserve the buns/wassant and collect it later. Else be prepared to have them tell you “Sorry, we ran out!”.
