🍞Floss Net Bun with Quail Eggs
📍Oishii Bakery
📌 West Coast Plaza
💰 $2.20

My friend and I argued over whether this bun was appealing or vomit-inducing. Personally I find it super cute and creative, while she was a #hater said it was disgusting. Naturally I wanted to try it so I got it (thank you friend for the treat) 🥰

The bun is both topped with and filled with seaweed floss, which I loved. There was a nice amount of floss throughout the bread and the quail eggs added a nice savoury taste to the whole thing. Kinda reminded me of those giant floss breads with eggs.

Would def get it again!

🍞 Umami Mushroom Bun
📍MADU The Bakery (@madubakerysg)
📌 Race Course Road
💰 $6

When MADU The Bakery was still a home-based business, this was the one bun that turned me on like a light switch because ZAYUM SHE LOADED AF. This bun has cheese, mushrooms, and a shit load of bonito flakes. Trés magnifique wow.

True to its name, this bun is an umami bomb. Super savoury flavours from the mushrooms, salty bonito flakes, cheese and everything. The bread is soft and nicely toasted with a crisp exterior. I think theres an option to add on truffle oil, which would probably have made this extra extra bomb. Maybe if they added furikake to this, it would be the bombest.

Must try and I'll def get this again!

🍞 Ong Lai Huat
🧧 CNY 2023 Special
📍BreadTalk (@breadtalksg)
📌 Multiple Outlets
💰 $2.30

Another one of BreadTalk’s CNY offerings that caught my eye, this polo bun is filled with pineapple jam AND mochi 😱

The polo cookie is really fragrant and delicious while the pineapple jam is sweet but not too sweet. As always, the mochi is really stretchy and soft, retaining its chewy texture even when refrigerated overnight. The amount of fillings isnt super generous but the flavour makes up for it.

Pretty impressive and really unique!

🍞 Mala Pot
🧧 CNY 2022 Special
📍BreadTalk (@breadtalksg)
📌 Multiple Outlets
💰 $6.80

BreadTalk may face its fair share of criticism but one thing that cannot be disputed is their incredible creativity when it comes to new products. The Mala Pot is their biggest solo bread to date, made to replicate a mala hotpot with a whole slew of ingredients, including lotus root, mala chicken filling, broccoli, surumi crab leg, cheese, enoki mushrooms, beancurd and more. Of course, it also dons a hefty price tag to justify its size and amount of toppings.

This bread alone could probably serve as a whole meal. Its savoury and slightly spicy with all the elements coming together to create a unique experience of textures and flavours, and I honestly think this is BreadTalk’s most impressive creation to date.

I did find the mala chicken filling a little rubbery but it wasnt a big deal as the other savoury ingredients came together to elevate the rest of the bread.

Its pretty pricey but worth the try given the sheer creativity of it. Huge props to the R&D team for bringing this to fruition!

🍍Pineapple Osmanthus ($8.80)
A CNY version of their ever-popular Fleur de Framboise, this pastry is shaped into a flower with pineapple stew in the centre and topped with osmanthus pear confit. The pastry is buttery and the amount of pineapple stew is adequate in providing each bite with a tangy sweetness. Do be sure to cut this in a cake style in order to enjoy a good dispersion of pastry and pineapple!

🥐 Matcha Yuzu La LeBombz
📍La Levain (@lalevainsg)
📌 23 Hamilton Road
💰 $8
🤑 Promo code: 《BREADINOSAUR》for $5 off on @pickupp.sg

Matcha and yuzu, an unorthodox combo. I was expecting the fillings to be a mix of yuzu and matcha cream, but its just yuzu cream. The matcha is relegated to the ganache topping.

The matcha ganache is really gao and rich, I can taste the sweetness of the white chocolate base, really good. The yuzu isnt too sour and its tangy and refreshing. However I would have preferred a more even ratio of the yuzu cream to matcha cream, as there wasnt much matcha cream imo.

🍞 Yam Floss Mochi Bread
📍Thai Baang Bakery (@thaibaang)
📌 Holland Drive / Lavender
💰 $3.50

Yes, after about a million years I finally tried Thai Baang. Ngl for the past 2 years I've been sceptical about them because $3.50 for two tiny breads seemed really steep, but the heftiness of these justified that.

The taro filling is super natural, I dont think there are any added sweeteners. Unfortunately that also meant that the taro was pretty bland. Could barely taste it :/ the chicken floss was also quite mild. It still had a bit of flavour but it wasnt super strong.

The mochi was nice! Stretchy and chewy. I think although the flavours of the ingredients werent very strong, when everything came together, it was pretty pleasant. I'd probably try this again, and I think it would appeal to those who have a lighter palate.

🥐 Chocolate Crool
📍GAMO (@gamo.sg)
📌 Bras Basah Complex
💰 $8

Yes, another round croissant, this time its from GAMO! Compared to the other round croissants from other bakeries, the amount of fillings in this crool are pretty little. It kinda reminds me of a pain au chocolat in that sense.

The chocolate cream is rich and not too sweet but I do wish it was more generously filled to justify the $8.

The pink colour of this croll is very sexy ngl but unfortunately it's a bit too sweet. Theres a nice berry flavour but the sweetness kinda overpowers everything. The croissant itself is good tho, flaky and crisp 👌

🥐 Nutella La LeBombz
📍La Levain (@lalevainsg)
📌 23 Hamilton Road
💰 $6.50

Yes, another bakery doing the circular croissants. La Levain's version of the circular croissant, named the La LeBombz, is marginally bigher than every other bakery, which was a nice surprise. It was also filled quite adequately with sweet nutella.

The croissant was crispy and buttery and the nutella coated the insides pretty well. Overall a really solid take on round croissants and priced pretty decently too!
