79 Circular Road
First impressions: Cute corner Parisian spot with an airy, industrial-chic vibe.
The Chosen One: Traditional French Breton cider is O Comptoir’s thing, and the Poiré Bouché brut, Cidrerie de la Brique ($8) is a dry pear cider that’s like a swankier version of a Somersby – served in a wine glass.
The Cheapskate: A glass of cider is $8 regularly, but grab a pitcher for $16 to $18.
Bite on this: There’s a crêpe to match every cider on the list, from classic cheese and ham ($12) to fusion crêpes like the Khao San Road ($20) – pan-fried prawns, tomatoes, garlic, mango chutney and mint – and the salted butter and caramel Normandy Landing crêpe ($8).
Last but not least: The dry Cidre Brut Rosé ($8) and sweet Cidre Doux ($6) are brand new to Singapore; you’ll find them only here.
