I love bread and baked pastries. The cute, the exquisite, the bold and experimental, anything goes!

Yes, egg CRART! A cross between croissant and tart. The egg custard was silky smooth and sweet, held secured in a tart-shaped pastry made of croissant layers. It’s so, so, so damn good. Imagine pudding-filled croissant, that’s how it tastes like! Looks unassuming, with an unassuming shop front but my, this’s the most amazing find around the hood. Best of all? It’s only $1.80, a fraction of $5++ / $6++ croissants at first-tier bakeries!

Yes, the background‘a a white A4 paper and yes, that’s how gigantic this croissant is! Holding it up from the plastic bag and placing it back down again on the piece of A4 paper was a 💔 process because it was SO flaky and crisp that plenty of the crisps fell onto the ground! While buttery croissants aren’t exactly the feel-good-clean-food, the airiness within the shell made me felt like it’s a light, airy bun, perhaps with no calories at all 😂 The buttery fragrance was prominent but not overwhelming - perhaps that’s also why the croissant didn’t leave an oily mouthfeel (eeeeyucks!) It thrills me to uncover cafe-quality croissants in neighbourhood bakeries, at just half the price!

👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻 BEST interesting find from the neighbourhood bakery by the papa. Shaped like some yard ball, with many layers of croissant-like interior. It’s so fluffy within and very much sweet-tasting. There’s slight hint of eggy + buttery fragrance. V.additive and amazingly nowhere near jelat despite it’s size. Of course, not recommending anyone to devour the entire portion in a single seating. Just saying it’s hard to imagine anyone getting sick of this!

$1.50 for ☀️ in the morning, what’s there to complain? I love the buttery crust and sweet custard that wobbled within. I wish the buttery crust came with more buttery fragrance tho!

Fluffy in, crisp out. Topped w crunchy fragrant almond flakes with some really awesome almond paste on the inside. It’s the perfect kinda indulgence for chill-out breakfast

Pretzel 🥨: Served warm, crisp on the outside and fluffy soft inside. There’s a slight ‘crack’ when you tear it apart. The sesame bits added another layer of fragrance to complete the awesome dish. Bottarga - a ‘delicacy’ of salted/cured fish roe mixed w whipped cream. Overall, it’s rich and creamy, in a sweet way with no hint of 🐟 actually. (So no worries of fishy aftertaste!) I wouldn’t have known that it has got fish in it if I hadn’t googled!

Hard-crusty toast with slight sweetness from the white chocolate and loadsa crunch from the generous portions of whole macadamia nuts! At 8++ for a full loaf, it’s a worthy buy considering there’s macadamia present in each bite

‘Baked to crisp -as evident from the crusty shell- and richly flavoured with salted caramel. Hmms, it was a tad too salty for my preference tho. I wasn’t able to really taste the caramel 🙊 Within the crusty shell lies fluffy croissant layers layered w almond paste & fresh banana slices - yes, you got the real stuff in there and that’s also probably why it commands a price tag of $3.20!

French bread glazed with gloriously addictive and aromatic Canadian maple syrup that lingers on the fingers for a long... long time! *Best served heated* It was a tad hardy having it cold but the maple syrup & crunch from the walnuts made up for it! 🥰

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
