As a huge fan of financiers, I was really excited to try @leanbento's new Protein Financiers, which are halal-certified, fluffy, and low-calorie, but without highly-processed protein, artificial flavourings and additives.

These Protein Financiers were developed by their founder @yangyang.charles, who created this to make up for always missing his meals, his urge to snack, and desire to stay lean, while cutting back on processed foods and staying youthful.

It works very well as a lean pre/post workout snack, meal replacement, child-friendly snack, with just 179kcal per financier.

Flavours I tried included White Sesame, Black Sesame, Butter and Cinnamon. Cinnamon was my favourite, with it being the most flavourful, and overall all the financiers were pretty soft, not too dry, and great as a snack! There's also other flavours such as Chocolate and Matcha, which sounded pretty interesting too!

Creme Brulee Cookie
Loved the custard flavour from the Creme Brule "pudding", altho a bit sweet, but I still really enjoyed it! There's also gooey choc within after heating up, would definitely not mind even more Creme Brule 🤤.

Speculoos Brownie
The Dark Choc flavour overpowered the Speculoos here - Speculoos isn't really strong unless you eat it on its own. Dark Chocolate was pretty rich tho, so hardcore Choc lovers would enjoy.

Congrats @whiskdom on your second outlet at Havelock II (Nearest MRT: Clarke Quay)!!

This isn't my first time trying @whiskdom, and I've to say I really enjoyed their bakes previously!
Love how their cookies are crazy chunky and huge, and how their brownies are really gao (rich and thick).

Matcha Cookie
Texture of cookie was good! Extremely THICC cookie that's crispy on the outside, yet soft on the inside, and completed with gooey Matcha filling. However felt that the Matcha flavour didn't come through as much as I'd have liked - would have preferred for the matcha flavour to stand out even more. Tried their Matcha Blondie before and really loved the strong matcha flavour there!

Buttermilk Scone ($2.60+)
Scones made with buttermilk and sour cream. Served with homemade wild blueberry compote and fresh whipped cream. Recalled that the fresh whipped cream was really light and a must-have when pairing with the scones! Overall not too bad in my memory from months ago 😆.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10

Brioche Donuts ($14+ / box of 4)

Enjoyed their Kaya donut as well, which was pretty fragrant. Only qualm is there's a little too much icing sugar coating the donuts.

Brioche Donuts ($14+ / box of 4)
Mixed flavour includes 2 kaya and 2 chocolate cream donuts.

Texture of donut was not too bad - quite soft and fluffy, although kinda oily! Chocolate cream was surprisingly pretty light, and it was slightly bittersweet in flavour, so q enjoyable!

Vanilla Bean Donut ($3.80)
You could literally see the tiny specks of (real) vanilla bean in the cream, and yes the vanilla taste is strong! It's kinda closer to vanilla custard, and I would pick this as my second favourite.

Hoijicha Donut ($3.80)
Definitely generous with their fillings, and you can also taste the Hoijicha, only thing is there's something about the Hoijicha flavour that isn't to my palette.

Taro Coconut Donut
This is hands down my favourite out of all that I've tried. The taro flavour was pretty strong, and the coconut flavour made it even more fragrant. The donut itself was soft, and I pretty much loved every bit of this donut.

These Pockets are something like a cross between Croquettes and "Japanese Curry Puffs", coated with Bread Crumbs (Panko) and deep-fried to give a crispy and bread-like texture.

Having walked past these pockets each time I visited @plazasingapur, I finally gave in to their visuals and the 3 for $8.70 deal. Sadly I didn't receive them hot, but I ate them right away, and am surprised they still remained really crispy.

Cheese Curry
Pretty much the best out of the 3, the addition of cheese to their strong and flavourful Japanese Curry was really welcome.

Brown Beef Curry
Tbh tastes pretty similar to the Cheese Curry, I mean it's prob similar curry that's used to make this. It's filled with basically what you'd expect from Japanese Curry - Potatoes, Carrots, and the Beef itself. I'd still pick the Cheese Pocket over this though.

Ebi Gratin
Decided to get something different from the rest - since everything was curry-based, and this was cream-based instead. It was a good choice to get something different, else it'd all probably taste almost the same, but felt that it was really mild and doesn't pack as much flavour as the Cheese Curry Bun.

I prob wouldn't head there specially for it, but if I'm nearby and decided I'm craving fried curry bread again then maybe, I may pay another visit, and just for the Cheese Curry.

Became a huge fan of Pecan Pie, thanks to Han's really good Pecan Pie (albeit being q sweet) - but this was kinda lacklustre. The pecan taste wasn't strong enough, and there was more tart than the fillings itself, but their other flavours could be good, which I wouldn't mind giving it another try next time considering the tart itself was decent.

Tbh forgot it says "lava" so I didn't expect it to be so flowy, but it's just like eating liushabao except in a pastry form.
