Started my day right with Asanoya’s Matcha Series - some old favourites and a couple of new additions!

Matcha Cruffin ($5.50) - A more than decent rendition, the flaky exterior (after a quick pop in the toaster) paired wonderfully with the earthy-sweet matcha custard filling.

Matcha Choux Puff ($6.00/ 4 pcs) - Tender one-bite dessert, the puffs were real light. The matcha azuki filling was pleasantly molten too. A tad sweet overall but a great, foolproof flavour combination.

Green Tea Mochi with White Chocolate filling ($4.80/ 2 pcs) - A real chewy number, the texture was fun though the matcha flavour was slightly more muted in comparison to the other pastries. Thus, the bits of white chocolate found in the airy interior which tasted a little caramel-like were a welcomed surprise.

Matcha Turtle Pan ($3.00) - Essentially an Asian-style milk bun with a crisp green tea flavoured biscuit crust shaped into a cute baby turtle - can’t go wrong with that.

Matcha Azuki Croissant ($3.80) - My favourite of the lot! Dusted with snow powder and studded with almonds, the buttery croissant held a really nice nuttiness and earthiness from the matcha-coated exterior and red bean filling. The filling was not too sweet and the pastry itself was pretty substantial.

Karuizawa Matcha ($3.20) - Soft and fluffy on the inside, and crusty on the sides, the slice had great textures. Infused with white chocolate chip, the matcha flavour was distinct, fragrant and I liked that it was subtly sweetened.

Using only premium Japanese ingredients with no preservatives whatsoever, the bakes mentioned are available at all Asanoya outlets; Paragon, Queen Street & Bukit Timah. Purchase them from the stores or order online: Grabfood / Deliveroo / Whatsapp (found on their page)!

This was a bread drop from Asanoya!
