Lee’s Confectionery in Jurong East for plated pastries

With an inconspicuous entrance and obscure storefront, Lee’s Confectionery intrigues those passing by the HDB carpark of Jurong East Block 343. The minimalist cafe is headed by pastry chef Lee Yin Quan, who boasts numerous achievements under his belt, from graduating with a diploma in French pastry at Ferrandi Paris to working with award-winning chefs such as Jean-François Piège and François Perret.

While the cafe isn’t exactly convenient to get to for non-Westsiders—it is a 10-minute walk from Chinese Gardens MRT Station—it welcomes patrons from all over Singapore who are big fans of their creative and delicately plated pastries.

All pastries are priced at $9 for takeaway and $11 when consumed in-store. Those dining in will have their desserts plated, with each pastry accompanied by a serving of ice cream or sorbet. You may need to wait a while for your goodies to be served, but that’s because the pastries are assembled piece by piece, only upon ordering.

Out of the six pastries that were displayed during our visit, only two are permanent items on the menu: Tart and Madu. The former is a lime and almond tart served with lime sorbet, and the latter is a hexagon-shaped pastry with a honey caramel centre. It is also served with Horlicks ice cream.

The cafe’s rotating pastries include Dale, a striking green-coloured confection with light matcha sponge, matcha mousse, and passion fruit compote sitting atop a french butter cookie base. This is paired with the zesty Matcha Citron Ice Cream.

Otherwise, there’s Pump, a pumpkin and cream cheese dessert crafted into the shape of a daisy. The prominent pumpkin flavour is an acquired taste with a starchy-sweet aftertaste that resembled pumpkin pie when we tried it.

Fans of orh nee can try the Ouni, which consists of homemade shallot oil yam paste, whipped coconut ganache, and a choux pastry. While the takeaway Ouni resembles a rattan basket with white ribbons on top, the plated one takes on a deconstructed version of the dessert with the choux assembled separately from the paste.

Coffee and tea are also available, starting from $5 for Peach Tea and $6 for a cup of Mocha. Alternative beverages include Soy Chai ($6) and Chocolate ($6).
