Something about this banana cake just isn’t quite the same... it seems to be made of more bananas than the usual banana cakes you get out there! I might even say I like this more than the famed Hiap Joo banana cakes in JB because of the stronger banana taste and dense yet fluffy texture. It’s so good I’d totally come down to this stall just for this 👍🏼

Super pretty cake sprinkled with crushed pistachios and edible flower petals 🌸 The cake was soft and crumbly, not too dense with a subtle lemony fragrance. It isn’t easy to have the courage to set up a stall selling cafe style bakes in a food centre but the stall has been quite successful as I see middle aged aunties and even older ahmas queuing. Kudos to the lady boss and her dad, do support her!!!

Finally laid my hands on brotherbird’s croissants!! Truly a good croissant with many flaky layers and the crunchiness of the exterior went well with the inner smooth nutella filling. They were not stingy at all with the filling but I do wish it was a little less sweet - perhaps a darker chocolate hazelnut filling?

Got this for takeaway but I know I’ll be back to just chill in this cafe :)

A light and buttery flaky croissant! Wait... does light and buttery even co-exist? Somehow, this croissant managed to do it! Filled with sweet-but-not-too-sweet almond paste filling and topped with crunchy sliced almonds, this was such a delight to enjoy for an afternoon tea time snack.

Pro tip: If the weather out there isn’t too hot, sit at the alfresco area to enjoy your croissant warm while watching the world go by 😌

My ultimate FAVOURITE matcha red bean loaf. Just look at all those red beans!!! The good thing is that the red beans aren’t too sweet too. Also, finally a matcha bread dough that tastes the part - the subtle bitter fragrance of the matcha is just 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼

Buttery fragrant crust encasing soft wobbly soya custard that isn’t too sweet! Absolutely love these soya tarts that we bought 2 boxes of 8 at one shot! Have been eating these since I was young and the same comforting taste has never changed ☺️ Next time, I’m gonna pre-order to try the grass jelly/red bean flavours!

Sadly, this sounded better than it tasted. The matcha spread didn’t taste much of matcha and instead, all I could taste was coconut (almost tasted like kaya because of that). The bread itself was also really thin and the wholemeal bread just didn’t really work out too. Give this a miss and stick to your usual old school kaya toast!

All time fav fav FAV from this Japanese bakery! If you’re here, please do yourself a favour and buy this - soft fluffy bun encasing smooth, bittersweet matcha custard cream. It’s a little expensive but considering that they use good quality ingredients, just take my money la 😂

One look at the earl grey tea bits you know you’re in for a treat if you’re an earl grey fan like me! 🤗 This was a super fragrant scone with a rich tea taste and great crumbly texture

An interesting twist on the local kaya and butter toast! The sourdough was crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside with some charred bits to inject a boost of flavour. Served warm and toasty, the butter melted nicely on the toast and the aroma of the kaya became even more prominent. Do note that the kaya is quite different - while it was lacking in the coconut fragrance that my favourite kaya at Ya Kun has, it makes up with the strong caramelised sweetness of sugar.

Don’t underestimate these egg tarts from this muffin bakery. Yes, they sell a wide variety of muffins (and they’re all really good!!!) but I love their egg tarts even more. They may look ordinary but the buttery thick crust and the soft, almost custard-like consistency of the egg filling, will make you go OOH and AAH. Disclaimer: these egg tarts are somewhat singaporean style though, so don’t expect the thin flaky crust that the Hong Kong or Portuguese style egg tarts give you.

Everyday is a good bread day!!! I gave my regular, the French mentaiko baguette, a break today and decided to try something new. So I got the matcha red bean, melty cheese bread, pain au chocolat and brown sugar raisin roll. The melty cheese bread was soft and fluffy and indeed filled with melty cheese (!!!) while the brown sugar raisin roll (seasonal special) is like their classic nihonbashi roll but upgraded.

While the bread here is not cheap (on average $2-3 per bun, $5 for half a loaf), Johan never fails to deliver in quality. Especially love the honey fruit loaf only available in limited quantities at 5.30pm 🤗🤗

Always on the lookout for good nomz
