Bun is very brown, has a roasty, almost burnt taste 😐. But it was kinda fluffy. Red bean is the nice japanese bakery kind, similar to pullman and gokoku - lightly sweet! But you’re better off at pullman / gokoku with more generous filling LOL

This was very fragrant, but it felt more oily than the gokoku one. Very similar in terms of taste, texture wise it was more filled?? Like usually there's a hole in the middle. Not bad but I think I still prefer gokoku/sogood’s shiopan!

maybe i had too high expectations or because i kept it for two days before eating it but this didn’t live up to its hype for me. don’t get me wrong, it’s still a good matcha bun but i tried st leaven’s version before and that tasted better 😬

in comparison, donq’s matcha crumbles are sweeter whereas st leaven’s one was bittersweet which i prefer. however their choc taste is stronger while it’s pretty much non-existent in st leaven’s one so to each his own i guess!!!

no big difference in quality but between the two, if you ask me, i’d say get st leaven’s cos it’s always available + 20c cheaper πŸ€ͺ

Most of you might have already seen this highly raved Uji Matcha Cream & Chocolate Bun (SGD3) many many times on IG, but here’s my review on itπŸ˜‰.
Queued and bought from @donq_depuis1905, a (not so new) JapaneseπŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ bakery located in the food hall of @takashimayasg B2, this viral matcha gem is hard to get your handsπŸ‘ on. Since they sell out really fast, you kinda need to be in the right placeπŸ“at the right timeπŸ•’ to nab yourself one or two. I guess Lady Luck🀞 was on our side that day since we only queued for about 10mins...
To get that luscious matcha🍡 lava when broken into, I’d recommend heating up the bun in an oven instead of microwaving for approx 8-10mins at 180Β°C. This way you will be able to achieve a crunchier😬 layer of cookie crumble on top.
Fluffy, matcha-licious & most importantly, SHIOK☺️!

My new favourite bread from Donq! Don’t be fooled by how β€œplain” this looks, it was so flavourful! Used to buy the mentaiko baguette every time I visit Donq, decided to try this on one occasion and hooked on ever since! πŸ˜‚ Highly recommended!

Having seen this very hyped up 𝑴𝒂𝒕𝒄𝒉𝒂 𝑩𝒖𝒏 by @donq_depuis1905 all over social media for quite some time now, I finally decided to get one after passing by the bakery, and THERE WAS NOBODY waiting in line in the separate queue for the 𝑴𝒂𝒕𝒄𝒉𝒂 𝑩𝒖𝒏!!! 😱❀️❀️❀️

Distributed out in individually packed plastic bags by a smiling Japanese Baker, I happily took one and went to queue 30min in the main queue for payment. πŸ˜… Yes, I queued only for one bun LOL.

Was it worth it??? A DEFINITE YES, if you've never tried it before, and if there isn't a long queue! I microwaved it for 30s on medium heat (too long apparently haha), and the generous amount of 𝑴𝒂𝒕𝒄𝒉𝒂 𝑳𝒂𝒗𝒂 automatically flowed out into that beautiful pool of green. π˜–π˜°π˜±π˜΄.😝 But it was such a beautiful sight, especially for a Matcha Addict like myself! 😍🍡🍡🍡 The bun was surprisingly soft and fluffy even though it was kept in the fridge overnight before heating it up, and paired with just the right amount of sweetness from the chocolate, I enjoyed soaking up every last bit of that delicious pool of nutty and slightly earthy goodness. Extremely messy to say the least, but totally worth the unglam scenario of me stuffing my face hahaha. πŸ˜†
