Walk into Mad Su­cre, a whim­si­cal French patis­serie and restau­rant in the Bukit Pa­soh area, and you might chance upon cake cou­turier Lena

Chan fin­ish­ing off an in­tri­cate ic­ing or two. Her cakes are as mesmerising to eat as they are to watch in the mak­ing through the glass-pan­elled kitchen. We tried a slice of Saveurs de Prin­temps, made up of Rus­sian earl grey-apri­cot cream, earl grey mousse, cle­men­tine, grape­fruit and savoire sponge. The com­bi­na­tion was sim­ply di­vine.

Lena’s brother Eric helms the savoury kitchen, whip­ping up hearty Proven­cal dishes with pre­mium in­gre­di­ents like wild salmon, mus­sels and foie gras. For mains, have the signature dishes such as a ro­bust stew of toma­toes with hand­picked crab­meat ($15), and slow-cooked ox­tail ($42) which was ten­der and packed with flavour af­ter an eighthour braise in Bur­gundy wine. Or go for their sum­mer spe­cials like wild-caught bar­ra­mundi in light miso broth ($38) and sautéed beer­mar­i­nated pork belly ($38).

Mad about Su­cre of­fers new con­fec­tioner­ies themed around childhood Caribbean sum­mer hol­i­days. Treat your­self to Sunkissed, a com­bi­na­tion of pink guava, light cream cheese and Nor­mandy sable ($12.80); and St. Do­minique ($12.80) made of dark cho­co­late, rum, plan­tain and Brit­tany crunch. These are also avail­able as tea-pair­ing sets from $20.70.
