Free Mori @ SS2

"Free Mori" could become a pick-up line for lovers of bread, pastries and cakes, thanks to this sunny bakery-cafe that has charmed SS2 and will soon be romancing Solaris Dutamas' Publika.

You know they must be bakers, 'cos they've got the nicest-looking set of buns.

We'd love to lick the frosting off their treats (all at prices that PJ's residents can well afford).

You're so sweet, we're nuts about you: lychee-cashew loaf, double-stuffed with fruits and nuts.

Canneles Bordelais, the traditional French caramelized custard confections. Puis-je t'appeler un gateau? Parce que je te trouve craquante.

Buttery financiers, with a rousing almond-vanilla aroma. Best consumed within three days, but we want you inside us now. 

Stud muffins: matcha-flavored fluffiness, match-made with a creamy red bean filling. We had a sweet dream that we'd be meeting you.

Blueberry-topped vanilla mousse cake. How about coming back to our place and giving us something to write about on our food blog?

Bonus place: Pour some more sugar on me at Churros Royale at Tropicana City Mall.

Are those churros in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Buy 'em plain with a butterscotch dip or stuffed with vanilla cream. Fresh and warm, they really nail the sweet spot.

  1. When we first saw Free Mori, we thought it was a new restaurant and I nearly made an illegal turn to get to it! At the last minute Wendy saw it was a bakery so we turned back..haha. We see the initial crowds have yet to die down though, and from your pics I now know why! Looks good!

  3. It's nice that the buns are not self-service like lavender or bread story! I've seen far too many kids touching the buns and never buying them! :P

    1. Missyblurkit: it's quite an obscure-looking section of the mall, i think. on the lower ground floor, somewhere in between the big supermarket and the little pet shop =)

  19. loved your quirky post about Free Mori. Have been patronising them for since they opened. Awesome treats all in a row @ Uptown - yummy buns from Free Mori {possibly a slice of cake}, mango green tea with bubbles {but of course} from Cha Time and a scoop of gorgeousness {better known as Jamoca Almond Fudge} from Baskin Robbins. It's a good good day when this happens :)

    2. I also think it is genius to have all these shops on the same row, next to each other.

    3. You can grab some mini cupcakes from Wondermilk Uptown too! It is all walk distance.
      OMG..my brain is salivating. Lol..

  20. Btw, the cheese and ham bun thingy is yummy. Heat it up for more yummy goodness.

    1. Dream Weaver: thanks, that's something i wouldn't have thought to buy, but i'll keep it in mind the next time i'm at free mori :D

    2. Free Mori has no idea that they have a great bakery shop competitor in Uptown. So far that i know, Uptown Baskin Robin is well known for their ice cream cake. Not just the ice cream. You should really try the Cheese Tart & Royal Almond Cake at The Thyme Bakery in Uptown Dream Weaver. You won't regret! It is in front of the hawker centre.

    3. Len: thanks for that! i've heard of thyme bakery, but i've not managed to visit it. will try to do so :D

  21. I just can't stop eating the thyme bakery cheese tart. Not much variation at Thyme Bakery.. but i feel it is more to something like small town bakery style whereby no formality or classy feel but the cakes are lovely. Well, I am addicted to the cheese tart. Thats why I talk too much about it. hahaha..
