The thick and chewy mochi layer is made from sweet potato, filled with a generous amount of creamy yam paste then coated with peanut on the outside. Unlike those peanut mochis we get from outside, the peanut here does not come with sugar. It gives a nice and strong nutty fragrance. If you love orh nee, you would definitely love the filling in this mochi (the same filling used for the orh nee tarts) that is pleasantly fragrant and subtly sweet.

These cheese tarts have got to be one of the best and most affordable ones in the market. The buttery crust just crumbles after a bite and the core just melts in your mouth without being too cheesy and heavy. I would just have to give those Japanese cheese tart a miss and go for this at just 1/3 the price.

Orh nee tart has the same buttery and crumbly crust with yam filling and ginkgo nuts. The yam paste was fragrant, thick and subtly sweet. Simple yet nostalgic.

It was so popular that we had to place our order in advance before heading over for collection. All three of the items shown are priced at $1.20 each.

Square-shaped brownies are prepared and baked daily to perfection. The menu changes every day so do check out their instagram for it.

The brownies over here are chocolatey and rich in sweetness with a hint of bitterness. The use of salt was like an add-on to the already good brownies and complemented very well with the cacao. Never judge these brownies by their size because they are very gao and one is enough to fill you up. I love them for their chewy, dense, moist and rich texture. A little pricey for its size but definitely worth the try and occasional treat.

The banana bread feels like banana cake to me. Quite dense but moist and not overly sweet. It was good but too pricey to indulge frequently.

The Hiroshima cream buns is one of Hattendo's classic product. The cream bun is so soft that it seems that it would fall apart the instant you pick it up. It is moist and fluffy that it seems it would melt the instant you put it in your mouth. I dived straight to their all-time favourite custard cream bun that contains a simple, light custard cream mixed with pure fresh cream. I also like their seasonal mango cream bun handmade with precision and oozing with rich custard and mango puree air-flown from Japan! The custard cream pudding in its original flavour was made with silky soft custard cream pudding on top of melted caramel. The texture was closer to a rich and creamy mousse instead of pudding.

Managed to grab a bag of biscotti over the counter. They are twice-baked to a dry and crunchy texture, ideal for dipping in hot beverage 》$2.50

The delicate crust cracks with a crisp, revealing an airy and soft inside with circular swirls. It is buttery and soft on the inside and flaky on the outside. Other than butter croissants, they also have chocolate or almond croissants if you are looking for something other than the usual plain croissants 》$3.50

A beautiful pastry base tart filled with lemon curd and topped with meringue. It has a good ratio of crust to lemon curd and Italian meringue. The filling was beautifully creamy, not too sweet, not too tart 》$7

Croissants are one of my favourite pastry. The inside was airy with smooth notes of warm butter, filled with orange cream cheese filling, raspberry jam and raspberry fruit plate perfect for a weekend brekkie brunch or dessert treat 》$5

Buttery and crumbly spent grain crust with the rich stout-infused ganache filling and a scoop of light and refreshing beer ice cream. The first time I had this was over a birthday meal and I'm glad to see this appearing on their set menu with a smaller portion.

This was the dessert from their 3 Course Executive Lunch Set which comprises a raw bar plated buffet appetizer selection, choice of main course and dessert 》$55

The box of tau sar piah is still warm when it was handed to me which means they are freshly baked to order. Flaky on the outside and firm on the inside, it has a nice and fragrant buttery aroma with a generous amount of filling. The ratio of skin to filling was good.

The sweet tau sar piah are topped with sesame seeds and the fillings tasted so much like those fillings lotus seed pau. It also has the right amount of sweetness.

The salted tar sar piah has the same texture except not having the sesame seeds. The difference in taste was quite subtle and it was not as sweet as the sweet tau sar piah. I couldn't really taste the saltiness but this is a better choice for those who do not prefer sweet snacks.

Make your order a few days in advance and beat the queue.

Box of 10 (5 sweet, 5 salted) 》$8

The egg tart reminds me so much of a beancurd tart where the colours are lighter and the filling is jiggly soft and silky. My jiggly egg tarts came home looking messy after a bumpy ride home 😅 The coconut tart was very fragrant and filled with a generous amount of shredded coconut. Both the coconut and egg tarts come with a nice and thick tart shell that feels like a biscuit and it’s not too sweet.

Aside from coconut and egg tarts, they also have flavoured cheese tarts such as blueberry cheese tart, lemon cheese tart and strawberry cheese tart.
