Imagine my delight when I walked into the bakery at 9am, to find no sight of a crazy queue! Yay, no one to fight with for the trolleys of freshly baked cruffins that were still piping warm and left on the troller to cool! I got 1 of each flavour that I had been wanting to try. Love the lemon curd - fluffy croissant layers that were light - and then surprises with a strong tangy pang. Salted caramel lovers would love the salted caramel and hazelnut version too (no salty desserts/ pastries for me!) Those with sophisticated taste would find the matcha rich and delectable while kids would love the peanut butter jelly cruffin!

Doughnut shack’s Bombolinis first caught my eye on ig with their pistachio bombos! Had been wanting to try it for the longest time and imagine my delight when I got hold of them! The vibes weren’t great when I stepped into the tiny shack, with the place reeking of oil because of the enclosed kitchen within the same space. The bombos and donuts looked pretty decent and legit on the shelves. However, when I brought them home hours later, oil has formed at the bottom of the box. There were trails of oil! Not just a droplet or two, or a stained patch of oil but visible streams of oil 😔 The dough of the bombos where’s fluffy at all too. The pistachio filling was the best out of the lot. White peach jam tasted like store-bought peach jam while the spiced vanilla was okay. There weren’t specks of vanilla beans so I suppose essence was used and there were no vanilla pods involved in the making of the custard. The honeycomb chocolate was a disappointment. Not only was the dark chocolate artificial in taste; the honeycomb was sticky and overly chewy - definitely nothing like your Cadbury honeycomb. It’s all so stale 😞

that perfect tea time on a cosy afternoon.
We decided on Kouign Amann, supposedly one of the more popular pastry. I liked how caramelised it was. But wish it was ‘softer’ and less chewy. The caramelised had hardened and was just a teeny bit hard to bite into. Overall a good pastry tho!

As for the blue pea latte, it smells rich of grain and slightly reminiscent of packet soy drinks that you find in supermarkets. Kinda ‘grainy’ and not a bit appreciated by my fiancé. I didn’t mind it tho. But at a $6+ price point, this is definitely not something I would order again. Once for the gram ‘cos of its beautiful blue hue, I don’t mind tho!

At $4.50/piece, this is definitely not cheap. However, the incredibly huge size and premium quality ingredients definitely justify the premium price point. The vanilla malt custard was filled with sexy black pods. There was a thicccc dollop of custard within the doughnut, with a dough-to-custard ratio of 3-7 (yes, extremely custardyyy!!) it’s topped with a tiny vanilla biscuit, similar to the ones you find on their vanilla bean cupcakes!

Not the best-looking, nor traditional round-topped banana 🍌 walnut muffin. This was squarish and less “puffed” up. But hey! Do not pass your judgement too soon, at least not until you’ve smelled the buttery, vanilla-ey aroma of this squarish little thing. Indeed when it comes to food, it’s not all about looks. Disregarding the non-typical look of this muffin, this muffin is worth 8/10 in terms of taste! I love how there were chunky banana chunks within the muffin, and walnut bits around the muffin top. AJ’s muffin still wins my heart - I’m a sucker for their streusel muffins. While the walnut bits were not as generous as AJ’s this is a close runner-up!

these bombos are a .... bomb in the mouth! Fluffy and generously filled with milo custard and I love how the milo-explosion in the mouth additionally enhanced with crunchy mouthfeel from the biscuits. There’s also a side serving of milo powder for those who’d love to create milo dino 🦕 doughnuts!

So... is a $4++ donut worth the splurge? YES, esp when it’s from a Michelin ⭐️ restaurant!! I’ve to clarify tho, that the Michelin star was clearly not accorded to the bakes (it was for the food!). Despite so, you’re assured of the same sincerity, quality and standards that they hold for the edibles that they produce, be it sweet or savoury. It’s so fluffy that the dough “bounces” back to it’s risen-form after each teeth-marked indent. How pillowy!! The vanilla custard wasn’t overly sweet, perfect for those who doesn’t want sth super sweet. The specks of vanilla pods thrills me!! Those black lil’ dots tells you: you’re paying for the real stuff! I love how they rolled these donuts in rough, grainy sugar bits, resulting in a nice overall bite and texture each time! I had it fresh, on the very first day of purchase, hence am unable to determine if there’s “bad oil taste” if you keep it for a day, or two (if you can resist polishing them off!)

Chitose Strawberry with Fromage Blanc cheese, served with a side of herby gingery extract. A little too floral-y for my liking but the perfect light dessert after a heavy meal

Krispy Kreme needs no intro but I guess the incredibly deals at late night clearance is worth sharing! It works out to be just $1 per 🍩, cheaper than the ones sold at neighbourhood bakeries?! Limited flavours available tho - whatever is remaining for the day will be the only available flavours. Then again, which donut at Krispy Kreme doesn’t appeal?

Cute little fours to end off the grande lunch menu. Can you identify which is which?

Pate De Fruit "Raspberry"
‘Gelatinous gummy coated with sugar. Good but not ‘wow’

Dark Chocolate Dome
‘delightful and definitely the joy of any chocoholic

Cashew nuts "Chouquette"
‘hollow within, topped with chestnut cream and a pretty leaf 🍂

Feiullantine "Waffle"
‘cereal / oat cookie base with sweet cream - very crunchy & yummy!

Got this at a discounted price of $3.90 (usual price, $5.50). It’s creamy durian filling with some sponge cake and wrapped in crepe skin. Hmms. Not bad but nothing very “wow” about the combination. Melts really fast under the hot singapore sun- even when it’s just 5mins out in the open!

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