Chocolate Lamington was like a crumbly chocolate cake coated with dessicated coconut. While it was soft, the cake was on the dry side. We did appreciate that the chocolate flavour was prominent and that the lamington was not just chocolate-coloured.

The chocolate almond croissant was served slightly warm which melts the chocolate filling and really helps increase enjoyment of this pastry. The croissant texture here can’t hold a candle to the airy, crisp, flaky likes of Mother Dough or OMC, but I appreciated the generous amounts of molten chocolate filling and almond slices. Even though there’s no marzipan filling, I’d choose this chocolate croissant over Mother Dough’s anytime due to the amount of chocolate inside. However, OMC’s is a clear winner in this category. Still nice to pick up if you’re craving a quick bite as Baker & Cook is conveniently located in Bugis Junction!

Tons of choices at wallet-friendly prices at this bakery next to Kent Ridge MRT. It’s quite a challenge deciding what to order (especially because they’ve got both sweet potato and pumpkin buns!). Decided to go with the sweet potato one first as it was prettier. With purple hued bread browned on the outside with almonds stuck on top encasing a vibrant orange sweet potato filling, I love the colours of this sweet potato bun.

My first bite didn’t yield such a great impression. It reeked of yeast, but after trying it again later on, I found I enjoyed it a lot more. The bread here isn’t the softest, it’s a bit dry and dense, but they’re generous with the moist sweet potato filling which counters the dryness of the bun. I also appreciated the crunchy almond slices, which added not only some crunchiness to the bun, but also some nutty flavours. I’m not too sure why the flavours tasted so off for me when I first bit into the bun, but it was a yummy bun after all! Probably will not buy again since there are so many other flavours worth trying first though.

First time trying their vegetarian chicken floss bun. I advise eating this as quick as you can without disturbing the bun as the floss tends to fall off and makes a mess in the bag if you carry it in a bag and shake it about. The texture of the vegetarian chicken floss is crispier than regular floss, but tastewise it comes pretty close. Perhaps the mayonnaise masks the true taste of the floss, so you really won’t be able to tell it’s vegetarian. I’m not such a fan of this bun due to the mayonnaise filling on and within the bun. Probably wouldn’t buy this again since there’re so many other flavours I love at Mama Patisserie!

Each time I make my way to Mama Patisserie, I’m faced with a happy dilemma - should I buy my favourites, or should I try a new flavour combination if they’re available?

Grabbed the last Sweet Potato Walnut bun off the shelf. Unlike their other buns, this one isn’t stuffed full of filling, but the sweet potato filling is enough to lend some sweetness to the pillowy soft bread. I love the walnuts on top which add some bitter nutty tastes to the bun as well, making this a healthy yet delicious meal/snack/treat.

*Mama Patisserie is FavePay and GrabPay friendly but only if you buy the items at full price! You have to pay by cash if you buy the items at clearance price.

This bun seriously smells heavenly - the roasted coffee aroma is strong and mingles with the lovely smell of baked bread to give rise to a true sensory experience. Unfortunately, the taste of this bun did not match up. The cream cheese filling didn’t go well with the coffee bun. I must say that the bread is really soft though, so that’s a plus although I didn’t enjoy this flavour combination.

Looks like matcha, smells like matcha, tastes nothing like matcha. Usually breads and buns don’t carry the taste of matcha very well unless there’s a ton of matcha powder used, but I had high expectations of this one due to the matcha filling inside. Unfortunately, I couldn’t detect the matcha flavour at all. At least the bun was soft and the filling does come with some red beans so it is not bad overall, but don’t buy this for the matcha flavour.

Nestled in the bottom corner of the display cabinet is this unassuming flavour that packs a punch. Perhaps one of the less-photogenic loaves, the Basil Leaves & Cheese loaf had a sunken-in appearance. Maybe the cheese was too dense for the fluffy bread at Thai Baang.

The exterior is a bit crusty due to the hardened cheese. Despite that, the loaf gives with minimal resistance. I was rewarded with an aromatic chunk of basil-spiced bread. The loaf was sweeter than I would’ve expected, but the initial sweetness is almost immediately cut through by the earthy herbs and sharp cheese. Good option for those craving a savoury bread!
