as you walk down or drive pass tanjong katong, you will notice this monochromed, black and white like bakery along one of the shophouses. If you are curious enough to explore, you will find that it is actually a french bakery called Do.Main.
the brainchild of baker chef Frederic Deshayes, do.main serves up artisan bread and pastries. as well as savoury items for breakfast lunch and dinner.
what did i try ?
the cream puff aka Paris- Brest (5hands)
Rare for me to post my favourite item as the first dish, but i can't seem to help it. The crisp exterior with that very tasty cream. I can have 3 at one go.
Charcuterie Platter (4hands)
a combination of duck & pistachio pate, pork rillette and kurobuta ham. Sourdough bread is served together for the platter and that is when bread and meat comes together. Simply adored the kurobuta ham as well as the pate. Quite filling so its worth to share.
Tartiflette “Reblochon” with bacon and potato (3hands)
the pungent cheese was overwhelming to an extent. aside, it was a good compliment with the breads that were available. that bacon gave the dish this porkish salty flavour marrying well with the potatoes.
broken eggs (4hands)
coming in two flavours - sour cream or tomato, these are essentially the french version of our half boiled eggs but baked in an oven. The reason it is called broken eggs is because one has to use that stick bread and rigorously mix the contents together. A different take but for the price, i would rather have our kopitiam soft boiled anyday.
the elicars (4hands)
they have a variety of flavours to choose for the elicars. i chose salted caramel and it didnt disappoint.
Cassolette oven baked escargots (4hands)
Have never been a fan of snails, but this left me wanting for more. The homemade butter garlic blends well with the shallots. A very surprisingly find here.

overallreview: shauneeie4hands. Artisan breads of the highest quality. Although do.main serves breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, i feel that the menu caters more to meals for the earlier part of the day. Loving the cream puff and elicars and also savoury items like the Charcuterie Platter and the escargots.
