The Pine Garden
Offering freshly-baked confectioneries for the past 30 years, The Pine Garden marries tradition with creative innovations. More noticeable for their selection on unique flavoured cakes, they also offer Handmade Pineapple Tarts and new year cookies during the festive season. The tarts are made using a “hand-me-down” family recipe and each batch of pineapple jam is laboriously made by slowly reducing and caramelizing freshly hand-grated, sieved pineapple pulp.
The result? Perfectly caramelised pineapple filling atop rich, buttery pastry.
Another must-try from Pine Garden is the Yuzu Pineapple Roll with reduced sugar where the yuzu is sourced from the renowned Kochi prefecture in Japan. They also offer other festive munchies such as HDL tomato cookies, steamed orh ni, sea salt kueh bangkit and butter cookie swirls.
