We went to Fong Sheng Hao with moderated expectations after reading other burpplers’ reviews. Ordered the pork, egg, cheese toast set with their signature milk tea ($9.60) and the Taiwan special pork patty set with a local kopi ($7.30). The toasts while tasty, were not that special. Drinks were average too. Our verdict: it’s pricey for the quality and quantity you get. There are other comparable options for kopi and snacks at more competitive prices.

Crunchy tacos with fish fillet and sweet tangy mango salsa, served with curly fries and salad. A satisfying meal!

Love their flaky and crispy croissants. Today we tried the pandan kaya, smoked salmon with wasabi cream cheese as well as the roast beef and mozzarella. Recommend the first two - the kaya was fragrant while the wasabi cream cheese added a nice kick.

Back again for breakfast this time. The thick slice of banana loaf was served with cashew butter, mascarpone cheese, fresh fruits, nuts and drizzled with some honey. Very pretty presentation but felt a little too much after a while. Would suggest sharing this.

Finally got to try this and was not disappointed. The pancakes were fluffy and soft. The whipped cream, salted butter and sweet maple syrup presented a nice balance of flavors.

Heard about this cafe for a very long time and finally we made it here. Good coffee and nice pastries! The curry mayo croissant and lemon pistachio cake were both good.

Came with high expectations but was unfortunately disappointed. The fragrance of the pandan was pleasant but the texture of the soufflé pancake was mushy and undercooked. Not the light and fluffy pancake that I expected.

Traditional French flatbread with truffle, pecorino and Camembert drizzled with maple syrup. A delightful combination which is suitable as a light lunch. Felt a little satiated towards the end so might be better to share.

Had coffee and cake here after our lunch and was pleasantly delighted with the dark chocolate cheesecake. The coffee is decent too.

Tried one of their Posh Toasts - Honeyed Mascarpone Toast. Poshly priced at $14, the sourdough was crusty and had a nice chewy bite. The house-made mascarpone was creamy and dressed with a drizzle of honey, pinch of Black Sea salt and crushed walnuts. Makes for a nice treat but probably not something I’ll eat often given the price point. The ambience of the bakery is cosy and there are quite a lot of seats for you to chill out with a coffee or with friends.

The cruffin was not ready yet when I got to the bakery at 8.30am this morning, so I bought it for take away when I was done with my breakfast. The slightly bitter burnt crust was a nice balance with the mildly sweet, creamy cheese. The texture of the cruffin was interesting .. crisp outside and moist inside. Quite pricey at $5.50 but a nice indulgence.

A very enjoyable croissant with a crispy matcha crust and matcha cream filling.
