Gifting With Taste

Vanda Patisserie is an artisanal bakery based in Singapore. Named after Singapore’s national flower, Vanda Miss Joaquim, we aim to pay homage to Singapore and celebrate resilience, hope and happiness through our bakes. 

Singapore's first gifting-with-taste concept, we create tasty food souvenirs which are also tasteful gifts for sharing with friends and loved ones. What better way to celebrate and remember us by than with a food souvenir that reflects the diverse ethnicity, unique culture and heritage of Singapore, a place we call Home.

Similar to the grit, determination and resilience of our forefathers, precious pearls are formed within the strong inner shell layer of pearl oysters. The beautiful seashell shape of Vanda's signature madeleines represent this sunny island's values of resilience, unity and strength.

Inspired by some of the food that Samsui women had, including beans, the Mille Layered Mochi Red Bean Salted Egg Pie is created to commemorate the invaluable contributions of Samsui women. This delicious pie is a blend of French baking techniques injected with local ingredients. Requiring 3 days to complete, each pie comprise of thousand layers of flaky, buttery sheets achieved through repeated rolling, folding and resting of the dough. Each of pie is unique as the intricate patterns are individually handcarved.

Values of Resilience, Unity & Strength

Since the 19th and 20th centuries, immigrants from India, China and all around the Malay Archipelago came to Singapore. Amongst them were Samsui women who hailed mostly from the Sanshui district of modern day Guangdong, China. These women came to Singapore in search of construction and industrial jobs and formed the backbone of Singapore's developing infrastructure.

Garden City

The “garden city” vision was introduced on 11 May 1967 by then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew to transform Singapore into a city with abundant lush greenery.

Inspired by Tembusu, a large evergreen tree native to Singapore, our Garden City Puff Pastry is presented in the shape of a leaf. Similar to the sublime demonstration of mathematics, patience and talent in transforming Singapore into a Garden City, we go through a time-consuming and tedious process of rolling, folding and resting the dough over and over again to create the perfect puff pastry with unique local flavours that are rich, delicate pieces of paradise which melts in your mouth.

Have a taste of Singapore, the Singaporean way. 

Fun fact: Tembusu's image is used as a motif on the back of the Singapore five-dollar note in the portrait series, having been chosen to exemplify Singapore’s aspiration of becoming a “garden city”.
