I don’t get the point of spamming so much coarse sugar onto the middle surface of the bun. It literally doesn’t value add to anything lol. The bread dough was very normal, like any other bakery kind of normal, which was disappointing after taste testing the mochi pork floss, gokoku komeko & kokutou x kokutou. It’s like I went up on a roller coaster and then went back down when I ate this. Probably a bad analogy but moving on. I’ve actually tried this once before and I liked the custard a lot so I got it again. Fortunately they give a lot of custard cream so it masks the average taste of the bread dough. The sign said vanilla was added into the custard, and you can really see specks of vanilla in the cream. I always get very excited when I see vanilla specks as it means that they used the real deal. The custard cream is mildly eggy and milky, and very creamy. It is also not very sweet so the cream is very addictive. When you eat the coarse sugar with the rest of the bun it really disrupts the goodness of the bun lol it adds extra sweetness & 0 flavour, like sis I am trying to enjoy my custard it’s not your turn to shine yet please go away. I wish they take away the sugar part but o wells. While the custard is really good, it doesn’t have the local bakery custard kind of taste that I’m currently craving, the ones closer to Gardenia or Dayplus’s custard cream bun (it’s lacking the flavour? it’s like have but they diluted it with milk or something) so it’s not 100% satisfactory :/ But still a good bun to try at Gokoku if you like custard :)

I’ve tried this before once but toasted so I wanted to try it again it its original state so I got it again. Nothing much to say except that 1) the bread dough is super soft and springy & 2) the brown sugar is super fragrant. It’s such a simple yet delicious bread omg. Definitely one of my favourites at Gokoku

At first when I got to try their komeko pan because my mom asked me to buy it I actually thought it tasted very strange and unpleasant, but after that one bite I kept thinking of her lol and wanting to eat it again. So this time I bought myself the Gokoku komeko pan as it sounds more exciting than the komeko pan. At first bite, there was the unusual taste again but this time it was so fragrant to me. It tasted like a type of singaporean kueh I eaten before last time but idk what exactly is that. It’s a taste that’s very hard to describe, you can only try it for yourself, but it does have a ricey kind of fragrance. The bread texture is on point as usual, when you bite down it springs back up 😍

This is the best pork floss bun I’ve ever eaten. Why? Because of the ‘mochi’ element. When you bite into this bun it’s super chewy and you can feel it springing up again every time you chew it down into pieces. I really loved the chewy texture, I think it really elevates the eating experience! This is something I love about Gokoku’s breads. The pork floss is the normal ones you find on floss buns. The pork floss is stuck onto the bread with some kind of glaze, probably mayo & something sweet?? There’s more of that sweet mayo glaze thing in the middle of the bun but there’s not a lot, just enough to enhance the flavour of the bun. I like the sweet mayo cream as it’s sweet, not too salty and creamy which complements and supplements the bun & floss instead of making the bun jelak. Another ✔️ from me for a Gokoku bun!

double yolk yam mooncake ($35 for 2 pieces excluding shipping)

got this on shopee as this came out top when i searched yam mooncake. since it has a lot of good reviews i decided to try this out. the box is super pretty and can be reused as a tissue box! love that. i found the pastry skin too oily for my liking which is sad because i loved the filling. the yam is comfortably sweet and natural tasting. the salted egg yolk was a bit hard & dry but it was really fragrant. when eaten with the yam though i felt that it overpowers the yam but still, it’s nice eating everything together. sorry the cross section pic is blurry but the cross-section is beautiful.

Bread Line is so underrated!! Why is there no location tag on instagram & only 2 reviews on Burpple ?????! I get my bread at the Bread Line at Hougang Bus Interchange, and decided to try it a few years ago as the flavours looked very interesting. Since then I’ve tried a few flavours and all of them didn’t disappoint. Their bread dough is consistently reliable, always soft, fluffy and delicious. Their fillings/toppings are also made so well, I feel like no matter what you get it will still be nice. Anyway I was craving red bean buns for a few days already so I decided to try Bread Line’s! When I grabbed them they were warm & steamy aka just out of the oven, it was really too bad I wasn’t hungry at that time and it was near dinner time 🥲 It’s ok, next time. This morning the buns were still super soft. They were also dense, which is how I like my baked goods! One bun looks small in size but when you hold it it’s actually heavy. At first bite I could already see the red bean fillings though I didn’t get the red bean yet. The bread itself was mildly sweet, soft, fluffy and dense 😍 The red bean filling was comfortably sweet and of the smooth kind. It also had a nice red bean flavour! Eaten together with the sesame seeds and bread dough, this truly satisfied my local bakery red bean bun cravings ❤️ I’m definitely going to start exploring more flavours at Bread Line very soon :)

Didn’t get to try spring into life & the luosong. The ah-pollo had a very interesting tasting filling, it was said to be custard but it tasted milky yet cheesy, I don’t have anything to compare it to but it was definitely yummy. Can be a bit strong tasting though. Spring blossom was a very simple but good bun, it just tasted like bread with spring onion & onion oil (which is what their description also writes lol). The cinnamon roll had a very cinnamony taste which got too overpowering for me (coming from someone who loves cinnamon, omg) so I didn’t really enjoy it. Are all cinnamon rolls this strong?? Never had one before before this. The sweet ptt pumpkin taro bun was the best among everything I bought. It was just decorated with sweet ptt, pumpkin and taro cubes and the bread dough was very dense and was sweeter than usual bread doughs. I think the root veges also were cooked in some sugar so the whole bun was sweet but in a comfortable way and it just felt like a hearty nourishing bun that everyone can eat. Overall WPC’s bread dough is very soft and tastes good. They also have innovative flavours so I will get more to try if I’m around the area.

The way I had to eat half a bun’s worth of white bread dough before I could taste the filling… I got so tired of eating white bread as the white bread wasn’t particularly nice to eat alone lol. When I finally got to the filling though I was met by the fragrant taro and pumpkin filling. This was a really unique combination of fillings and I was glad the filling actually tasted nice. The pumpkin wasn’t very sweet so I didn’t really enjoy that part of the filling (I’m spoiled by Korea’s sweet pumpkin lol) but the taro bit had a nice natural-tasting yet mildly sweet yam flavour, so I enjoyed that. Wish they have a bun that’s purely yam-filled :/ Also Muyoo pleaase improve your bun:filling ratio thank you

This is my first time trying a Portuguese egg tart so I didn’t know the tart base was supposed to be croissant-based instead of buttery cookie-ish-based (aka the normal tart base). The pastry base was buttery and flaky, something I think people would like if they like eating croissants. I don’t really like them so I found myself wishing they were the normal tart base instead. The egg custard was super good though. It was eggy and mildly milky and creamy. It wasn’t super sweet either which made it very enjoyable to eat.

I don’t know the price & stall name as my mom dabaos them back but this is the only min jiang kueh stall at Kovan 209 Market :D Only discovered this stall recently and now it’s my Saturday breakfast staple. The mjk batter is squishy and chewy, and there’s just something addictive about that texture. It’s like Granny’s Pancakes but thinner. The red bean paste is mildly sweet, smooth and has a sweet and savoury flavour which I really like as there’s a variety of flavours going on there which makes eating exciting. The peanut one is not as fragrant, and the peanuts were soggy. It doesn’t have the roasted peanut fragrance but it wasn’t bad either if you love peanuts. I alternate between these two flavours one bite at a time and I felt like I was in mjk heaven.

Ordered this via Grab food and it came to me at room temperature. The cake was soft and dense, just how I like my cake to be. The kaya filling is the same as the one used in their toast. They gave a lot of filling so I was finally able to taste their kaya (couldn’t taste it in their toast as the layer was too thin). The kaya was very coconutty and mildly sweet which went super well with the fragrant pandan cake. I just wish the kaya wasn’t so grainy. The cake had a strong pandan fragrance too! Would recommend trying this.

So many of Muyoo’s buns have such a disproportionate filling:bun ratio… I always have to get through half the bun (of pure bread dough) before I can get to the fillings which is quite annoying and boring to eat (especially when the bread costs $2.90). The sweet potato filling was good though. It was very smooth (instead of fibrous) and was very mildly sweet, so you can taste the natural sweetness and flavour of the sweet potato filling. It was a rather heavy bun and they gave quite a lot of fillings, so I enjoyed having this. Still, they could reduce the amount of dough or increase the fillings so that I can get to the fillings at the first bite (instead of sixth lmao)
