When a shop sells only one item, you know that it’s good! These carefully crafted buns were delish - the crumbly golden crust was very crunchy, and the soft bread below was fluffy. Sandwiched in between was a slab of creamy, slightly salted butter which went wonderfully with the light sweetness of the bun. You can really tell that every detail of the bun was meticulously thought through and well executed.

A great bun, definitely, but I personally wouldn’t pay such a price for just a bolo bun. I’m happy I tried it once, but I don’t see myself coming back again and paying such a price for a bun. Perhaps I’m not such a huge fan of bolo buns after all. If you’re around the area, it’s alright to give it a try just to have an experience of what an atas bolo bun tastes like.

We visited at around 1pm on a Saturday afternoon and it was quite busy, but we only had to wait about 10-15min for our buns.

Tasted best when eaten on the spot especially the classic with butter (S$5+). Quite messy.

Champion Bolo Bun is a shophouse cafe at Tanjong Pagar that specialises in bolo buns. The 4 Mini Classics ($4.50) feature four mini bolo buns that are great for sharing, except that it is hard to stop at just four as they are so addictive! The freshly baked buns are soft and fluffy, and the crust on top is buttery and crumbly.

The place is buzzing with people on a Saturday afternoon, but thankfully there are two levels of seating area and it is pretty quiet upstairs:) I love the bolo buns - they are simple, delicious and authentic. This is about as close as I can get to a holiday in Hong Kong for now🇭🇰!

Champion Polo Bun had been quite the hype on social media before the ban on dine-in was imposed during the Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) period — aside from the pretty interiors of the three-storey shophouse that it occupies, much has also been mentioned about their Bolo Buns as well.

Visiting their store during mid-day on a weekend afternoon, we were actually pretty lucky that there were still quite a number of empty seats around and that there was a lack of queue — the queue started to form up shortly after while we were collecting our order. That being said, the Mini Bolo Buns were already sold out for the day.

Between the two, the Classic Bolo Bun with Butter was a clear winner for me — possibly one of the best, if not the best Bolo Bun that I have had around the island. The bread beneath is fluffy — almost akin to a slightly firmer yet fluffier rendition of neighbourhood bakery buns, but the crispiness of the buttery crust on top is surprisingly fragrant and sufficiently sweetened; so crisp that one would be able to hear audible crunching sounds as one munches on it. It comes with a slab of salted butter — some may notice how its a bit thin compared to some other establishments, but I think it did complement the Bolo Bun adequately without overwhelming the fragrance of the bun. The Curry Bolo Bun comes almost the same in terms of texture, but comes well-filled with curry filling that contains small cubes of potatoes that were pretty soft. Enjoyed how piquant and spicy the curry gravy was; sufficiently coconut-y with a distinct fiery punch that provides a good kick to tingle the taste buds, but the purist in me still prefers the alluring fragrance of the Classic Bolo Bun instead.

A lot has been said about the Bolo Buns from Champion Bolo Bun, and I would say that I can only agree to the hype that I have heard thus far about it — possibly one of the best Bolo Buns around especially when it comes to that shattering-crisp buttery crust over the top; definitely worth trying at least once, but something which we will likely be going for again!

Loved the crust. Buns were soft and fluffy. Maybe I should have opted for extra butter. Wished they did butter + kaya or butter + charsiew.

Curry bolo was slightly spicer than your average curry puff. My friend preferred this but if I were to eat one on my own, I would choose the butter although both were good.

Iced milk tea was strong, slightly bitter and siap but I liked it. Don’t mind ordering it again even though it’s not exactly cheap for teh.

Tasty bolo buns although I have not eaten a lot to say if it’s worth the hype. I like the dining space so I don’t mind coming again to chill and eat.

We were there nearing their closing time and the buns that were left include the Curry Potato ($6) and Mini of 4 ($4.50), which we got the latter. Paying $4.50 for a quadruple of mini buns, in my honest opinion, is way overpriced and part of that cost probably went into the packaging, interior decorations and amenities. I am not saying that it’s a bad polo bun, but there are definitely many alternatives out there that are cheaper with a similar taste or even better. Will I return? Probably not but i am curious to see if the bakery/cafe can innovate further to stay in the trend down the road.
