$4 // this was marketed as their signature dish but it really was nothing special at all in my opinion. what i liked was the texture of the bread (flaky outer layer and very soft inside) but the black layer was just the normal bread but in a black color. the description for this bread includes chocolate chips, but the amount was soooo little that it might as well not have been there πŸ˜• so it really was just me eating plain bread by the end of it. not sure why this is their signature when there are way better items at keong saik bakery.
(makes me kinda sad though since there are so many interesting flavors that could be done with the black and white combi like black sesame or even a stronger dark chocolate bread??? sighzzz)

One of the good-looking pastries I found at Keong Saik Bakery πŸ™ƒ

Somehow found this even better than their signature Sor Hei (which is already really good)?? Loved the multi-dimensional warm oozy cheese encased within flaky crisp pastry shell 😍😍 Was initially skeptical of the price for this tiny pastry, but wow the pastry really spoke for itself πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» PSA: 10% off every Monday and buy 2 free 1 about 30 min before closing!

Really love the vibes of this bakery!!! From the first instance when the buttery fragrance hits you, to the friendly staff explaining the origins of their bakes, to humbly asking for feedback before every single customer leaves - exactly the spirit every bakery should have regardless how popular they get! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Sor Hei not only has a beautiful origins history (shaped like a Majie’s hair bun), but tastes just as good as it looks! Seemingly simple black and white Danish pastry with chocolate chips, every intertwining layer was just the right amount of buttery without being overly cloying - flaky on the outside and soft pull-apart on the inside 🀀🀀 PSA: 10% off every Monday and buy 2 free 1 about 30 min before closing!

Cos we were greedy, between the 3 of us, we had 6 different bakery items (Burnt Cheese Cruffin, Milo Cruffin, Sor Hei, Croissant, Tuna Toast, and some black glutinous thingy which I didn’t eat). My favourites were the Burnt Cheese Cruffin and Sor Hei, but generally we thought that all the bread were good and we appreciated the fact that they remained crispy even after being left on the table for some time. If u’re a bread lover, I’m pretty sure u would like this place! The coffee tended more to the traditional coffee-type. The Latte was not the typical western latte, but it was not bad. I felt that the Kopi Milo was a little too diluted though, but maybe cos I took too long to drink it and the ice all melted.
Can’t recall the exact prices but total for all these items was $31.50 which I thought was pretty reasonable given the quality of the bakes!

'Sor Hei' ($4)
- A black and white danish pastry with layers of chocolate chips embedded into it
- Crispy, buttery with a hint of cashew nuts; I am not entirely sure if they actually added any but there was definitely a nutty aftertaste to the pastry
- Subtle semi-sweet chocolate flavour
- Good to pair with their coffee and (I'm not kidding) to dip in soft-boiled eggs
Price: 7/10
Taste: 6.5/10
Overall: 6.5/10

Matcha salted egg cruffin ($4.90)
- The cruffin itself was very crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside
- The top was also subtly sweet due to the powdered sugar, making it slightly more enjoyable to eat
- When I first tasted the filling, I must admit that it was quite bizarre and had no idea what I was tasting. After awhile though, it was quite addictive and the sweet salted egg taste was very distinct with a matcha aftertaste to end the entire experience
Overall, quite enjoyable if you like salted egg
Price: 7/10
Taste: 8/10
Overall: 7.5/10

For $3.80, this was really nothing special. would rate 1/5. not sure why it is their signature, but their matcha cruffin looks nice. would try next time

This is Danish pastry with chocolate chips in it. It’s great toasted because the outside will be crispy while it’s fluffy on the inside. Also, the chocolate chips will have melted a bit so it goes well with the pastry!
