🍞Peanut Chocolate Toast
📍8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro (@8degreesatsg)
📌 Multiple Outlets
💰 $6++ ($7++ with pearls)

I would never have initially ordered this on my own accord but my friend wanted to get it, so we did and I’m so glad that I gave this a chance because it is so bloody incredible.

While I had expected the bread to be just some normal thick bread slice with a layer of pb on top, I was surprised that the bread was actually FRENCH TOAST! That made it even more tasty and the peanut butter was amazing, it was super flowy and there were small bits of peanuts for added crunch. The chocolate element was a bit lacking imo, barely tasted it over the overpowering peanut butter.

We chose to add pearls on top for $1, and it became even more amazing… was pretty surprised at the large portion of pearls given. The pearls were super chewy and not tough at all, sooo good.

What an impressive gem! Albeit a bit pricey given how basic the concept of this toast is but worth it if you’re in the market for some pb french toast and you’re lazy to make it yourself.

La Levain has launched yet another super creative creation: the Onigiri Croissants! These adorable pastries are shaped like Japanese onigiris, complete with a strip of seaweed to complete the look.

🌱Scallion Sour Cream ($7.20)
This croissant is so fresh and savoury! The sour cream is light and creamy while the scallion is slightly crunchy and tangy, the perfect combination. Savoury croissant fans must try this.

🧀Mentaiko Cheese ($7.50)
They really do not hold back on the mentaiko! The filling is super rich and creamy with a strong mentaiko taste plus bits of roe that give the cream a unique slightly grainy mouthfeel. Its a tad salty for me but for those who love strong flavours, you’ll probably love this.

🍠Orh Nee ($7.20)
Omg where to begin with this??? This was 100% my favourite of the 4 flavours I tried! Dont expect any ordinary taro paste, this filling is jam-packed with sweet and savoury flavour. The aroma of the shallots shines through in this croissant and its perfectly smooth and delectable. So amazing, must try!

💚Sicilian Pistachio ($7.20)
The pistachio flavour is rich and very nutty, I love how the cream isn’t too sweet. I love pistachio so I loved every bite of this!

Double shot strong brew coffee; not bitter or milky..

Deconstructed mushroom toast; sourdough is cut into small pieces then buttered toast to crispy outside while retaining the soft & fluffiness inside; grilled mushrooms are crunchy & mixed with soft spinach; drizzled with creamy mushroom sauce, sprinkled with shallots & crispy sourdough crumbs; topped with 2 well-poached egg; wish there's more mushroom sauce to go with the toast; otherwise a dish worth a try..

Knife-cut noodles tossed in scallion green sauce; crispy pork belly is lean & infused with mala taste, not spicy but has the numbing sensation; with chopped braised mushrooms, grilled mushrooms, chopped long beans, shredded cucumbers, chopped scallions & onsen eggs; tastes of ingredients complement each other well; unique fusion dish worth a try..

Al-dente pasta tossed in creamy & rich pink sauce; seared scallops are fresh & juicy; best for sharing as it gets surfeiting towards the end..

Coffee taste is quite mild; distinct durian taste; towards milky side; would prefer a more balanced coffee and durian taste..

Signature sliced durian cake; vanilla sponge is soft & fluffy; 2 thick layers of durian which is fragrant, rich, sweet & mild bitter; 1 of the best durian cake worth a splurge..

Chicken thigh is tender & succulent, marinated with spices; love the slightly charred edges; topped with a slice of grilled orange; would be better if there's pronounced orange taste which can help to cut through the greasiness; came with fresh greens & cherry vinaigrette at the side..

Al-dente pasta with garlic, olive oil & chilli padi; mild spicy, tastes nothing special; came with baby spinach & tiger prawn..

oatside really beings out the fruity notes of the single origin blend!! one of my fav oat whites now
