Le Bon Vivant

Nestled within Bukit Merah Central is Le Bon Vivant. A quaint cafe helmed by a Le Cordon Bleu Sydney Culinary Arts Institute trained baker.

Salted Caramel Cheesecake

There weren’t many interesting varieties of cakes offered that day, possibly due to our early visit. The Salted Caramel Cheesecake ($4.50) was pretty decent. It was sticky with a substantial cheese flavour, and a lingering saltiness in the background. We could appreciate the homemade nature of this cake. However, one downside was the crumbly crust with a rather overpowering buttery taste.

Tarte au Citron

The Tarte au Chocolat wasn’t available and we tried the Tarte au Citron ($4) instead. This nondescript little tart was packed full of citrus goodness. The lemon curd was on the thick molten viscous side, and was strong in a sour lemon flavour that immediately awoken our taste buds. The crust wasn’t overly buttery in this case, allowing the refreshing lemon flavour to take centre stage.
