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 🤗🤗

Not every Swee Heng sells this but if you see it, GET IT. This bread is way too under the radar but absolutely amazing with swirls of brown sugar (even inside the bread too!!) and the nutty bitterness of crunchy walnuts to balance it all out. I LOVE THIS 😋

Too many nice breads here at Petit Provence!!! But this is one of my favourites - just look at those swirls of chocolate! It’s not hard to find these croissant-lookalikes (four leaves, breadtalk etc all have them) but it’s hard to find any as soft and fluffy. Legit almost like clouds!!

Always on the lookout for good nomz
