I really like Honolulu Cafe's polo buns, given how the cookie crusts are crunchy and sweet with an adequate fragrance to them. However, my gripe with them would be the dryness of the interior of the bread, and Honolulu Cafe has successfully found a delicious way to override the dryness: by adding everyone's favourite icy treat, ice cream!

The polo bun comes with 3 scoops of taro ice cream and 2 pocky sticks. Although the ingredients are simple, they're constructed in a way that makes this polo bun look certifiably atas. With the addition of the ice cream, the bread did not taste dry at all. The polo top was crispy and sweet, though the sweetness of the ice cream did drown out a bit of the cookie fragrance, so I'd prefer to eat them separate.

The ice cream has a pretty evident taro taste, though a gripe I have with it would be the overly icy texture, which was a bit of a mix between ice kacang and actual ice cream. Generally that did not diminish the taro flavour but I'm personally a fan of creamier ice creams.

So earlier I tried the plain crispy polo bun from Honolulu Café and wasn't impressed. However, I can safely say that this polo char siew bun is BOMB and OMG SO MUCH BETTER. It's like going on a date with a pair of twins, both are hot af on the outside, but one of them CLEARLY has more substance on the inside.

Where to start? This bun is generously stuffed with sweet char siew. The char siew doesn't have that cheap neighbourhood bakery char siew taste and it's nicely coated in sauce. Quite a bit of fat but also good amount of meat. The polo cookie on top was just GLORIOUS WOW. Sweet and buttery and super crumbly! The polo on its own was so good but together with the char siew? OMG MARRY ME ALREADY. And ofc extra bonus being that this polo isn't dry like the plain one.

This is one of those buns where I know that I just HAVE to get again.

Was kinda hesitant on trying this because why get a regular char siew bun when Honolulu also sells char siew polos?

Pretty glad I tried this cuz it's so good! The bun is well filled with sweet char siew filling and the bread is really soft and slightly chewy. Definitely tastes high quality and one of the best char siew breads Ive had!

I'd still get the char siew polo over this, of course, but this bun is still amazing and I'd highly recommend!

The bread is pretty firm and quite tough and chewy compared to other breads. The coconut filling is incorporated with the butter, so the coconut aroma on it's own isnt super strong. It's still pretty good though, being slightly sweet while packing a nice buttery fragrance.

I quite like the idea of combining coconut with butter, though don't expect a very strong coconut taste from it.

I've tried quite a number of polo buns from different bakeries and this polo bun is pretty average tbh. The polo cookie is crisp and a little thin. It's nicely sweet but nothing all that wow. The rest of the bun is just plain, slightly dry bread. No buttery centre, just bread. Nothing interesting about it at all.

Super average polo bun, its basically just plain bread with a cookie crust. Save the money and just get a filled bun :/

🍫 Hazelnut Chocolate
When I heated this, the chocolate became suuuuper flowy! However, due to how extremely fragile and crumbly the tart was, it was too difficult to remove it properly from the oven. I can tell that the chocolate used is those really cheap kinds because there was SO. MUCH. OIL. It was basically like the kind of chocolate used in the $1 7Days croissant. $4 for 4 of these? Seriously??? It still does taste pretty nice and rich when heated, but omg definitely NOT worth the price.

💛 Beancurd
The filling tastes just like tauhuay, just with a thicker, more egg tart-like texture. Seriously overpriced too for such an average taste.

Even with the voucher, these really aren't worth the money. From the tiny size to the lacklustre, doughy crust to the oily chocolate? How can this be sold for $4 omg 🤦‍♀️ just go to any random neighbourhood bakery selling regular sized tarts for $1 or so each. It's a lot more worth it.
