We were feeling peckish late one night and headed to Antoinette, which opens till 10 pm, to takeaway their sweets.

The Le Royale ($8) with inter-mingling layers of 64% dark chocolate mousse, almond meringue, hazelnut almond feuilletine, chocolate genoise, and a dash of dark rum infusion for grown up decadence, will convert any chocolate haters. It's moist, rich and strikes just the right balance of sweet. One bite and I was hooked. We immediately regretted taking away only 1 of this. Possibly the best rendition of this classic French confection.

Antoinette's Macarons ($2.50 each) are another must-try. They're huge, perfectly textured with a slightly crisp, resistant crust and chewy insides and filled generously with smooth rich cream. From left to right: Passion-milk chocolate passionfruit ganache; Grand Cru-bitter dark chocolate; Brittany-caramel with fleur de sel (my favourite!).

From left to right: Charlotte-vanilla cream with strawberry coulis, Rose-rose petal cream, Antoinette-milk chocolate earl grey tea ganache with raspberry confiture (the Hub's fave!)

Another thing we love love LOVE about Antoinette is their Croissants ($2.50). They're awesome sauce. Truly. They have the most heavenly buttery flavour, with a delectable chewy texture and aromatic roasted flaky crust. Best croissants in Singapore, no doubt about it. They run out quite quickly so a tip is to call ahead to reserve the necessary orders, otherwise be prepared to be disappointed.
