Was there earlier tonight to get some bread, curious to try out the products of this bake shop owned by Chris Tiu et al.
bought one piece each of a few kinds but have tried only 2 kinds this far- the baguette and the beschamel bread stick (that’s how it was spelled, I think).
the baguette is as tough as all baguettes go, okay most. Not my type really but the breadstick was really, really great. The girl was recommending the other variant – sesame with herbs I think, but I opted otherwise. The breadsticks are sold in 3s, tied with a white thingy. I finished an entire stick and could have had more. Partnered it with cheese from Bacchus World Epicerie which I got after they let me try two kinds. Heaven.
At Bacchus I got two silicone spatulas in kiwi and tangerine. Years back I bought a blue one, Le Creuset brand. It’s still okay, and has outlived other brands I bought even later. More expensive but worth it!
They gave me a box of cookies at Bacchus because I reached the minimum amount that entitled me to it. Nice surprise.
Speaking of entitled, I got a second tube of L’occitane hand cream from the Power Plant branch for free. How? Months back I downloaded the SSI app that gives alerts on its various stores, as well as coupons that entitle one to freebies or discounts! Download it now! So worth it.
