Such a pity that they no longer allow dine in or reheating of pastries! The almond croissant ($5) was still crisp, but I would have preferred it warm. Loved the added crunch from double baking and the almond slices on top, but found the inner layers a tad dense. The frangipani filling was not too sweet but a little plain!

I’d recommend asking them to heat the pastry for longer! Ours was barely warm and sorely deficient in crispiness, despite our request. That being said, the sticky bun ($4) features a wonderful medley of flavours - I particularly loved the pecan glazed in a sticky caramel.

Lola’s famed honey paprika wings ($10+)! These are pretty darn tasty; the batter is crispy, drizzled with thick honey and sprinkled with spices. A real explosion of flavour with every bite! However, the portions are small - not quite worth the premium.

Would recommend making a reservation way in advance, or buffering for time to queue. We waited about 40 min on a Friday night! A 1h dining window is enforced as long as there are people waiting for seats. Also, they will not be stocking tarts for an indefinite period of time.

So happy to discover a Tai Cheong! These are hands-down my favourite egg tarts ($2) - I usually dabao them back to toast till the buttery tart is crisp, and the custard caramelised on top. The pandan tart ($2) is really fragrant too!

Had to wait ~ 20 min to get a seat on a weekend afternoon! Thought we’d try something different by getting one of their savoury pastries. The ham & cheese croissant ($6.50) looks rather underwhelming, but it maintained a crisp exterior. The inside seems denser than their plain croissants, which is a pity as the buttery layers were not appreciable. The melted cheese ties the ham in nicely!

The truffle fries ($12+) are a great option as you wind down after work! The portion is a tad small for its price, but this was my favourite bar bite. Found the truffle mayo redundant, but the fries themselves are crispy and exceedingly fragrant!

These are hands-down some of the best ang ku kueh ($0.90-$1 each) I’ve ever had! Each piece is massive and packed solid with filling. They have a wide variety to choose from and they are just the right level of sweetness! I liked yam and peanut the most, but my favourite part was definitely the chewy & pillowy soft skin!!

The croissant ($4) is really something to behold 😭 just look at how its many layers are evident, and so nicely rolled! The croissant’s crisp exterior flakes nicely, and its insides are filled with buttery layers. Such a sinful treat!

Mother Dough has been on my list of bakeries to try for the longest time! Snagged a few and they proved delightful. The banana walnut bread ($4) was a hefty slice, moist and packed with chopped nuts! The cookie ($3) was a crowd favourite - crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside and chock full of melted chocolate with a sprinkle of sea salt. I’d head back just for this!! Lastly, the rye fudge brownie ($5.50) was perhaps my least favourite of the lot - it was on the dry side and crumbly, lacking the rich flavour I’d expect from a fudge brownie.

Home baker Liz does a fudge rendition for her brownies ($13, 4”) - the base is moist and richly flavoured, further enhanced with rich chunks of chocolate within. The brownie is delicate balance of sweetness with a tinge of saltiness. Would have liked the top crust to be a little thicker and crispier!

Homebaker Liz has cookie jars available for order during her bake sales - her sea salt chocolate chip cookies ($12.90, 12 pieces) are one of the popular options! The cookies are chewy with a crisp exterior, with huge chunks of melted chocolate within. I found the salt flakes sprinkled on top a tad to heavy as the cookie itself already has a salty tinge! The cookies were certainly yummy, but I’m not sure they’re worth the premium of paying > $1 each.

One precious square of Pei Lin’s very magical brownies ($30 for a box of 12 squares)!! Watching her baking process at night always makes me salivate, and she definitely invests a lot into perfecting her recipes. Her brownies are made with premium dark chocolate, moist and fudgey with bittersweet chocolate chips and a crusty top. They melt in your mouth with none of that greasy aftertaste. Would have this every day if I could 🀀
