This has a rather strong black sesame taste (from the black sesame cream injected into the donut), it wasn't too sweet and I actually quite liked it.

This was pretty light and fluffy, with a lot of cream that has a tangy citrusy taste. But this is definitely a misnomer, because they use lemon, not yuzu. It's not super sour but I think it's decent enough, I wouldn't mind a more tangy one tho. I could do without the outer glaze (apparently it's made out of the same lemon cream filling + some sugar). Out of the 4 I tried (yuzu, ondeh, sesame, peanut), this is the one that feels most like a donut. The rest deviate away from what a *donut* means to me, and not a particularly positive way.

This was quite sweet but I have a soft spot for the gula melaka / molasses type of sweetness, so it wasn't cloying. This one was also quite fluffy, but tasted more like a bread bun rather than a donut? It's green but there was no pandan taste, if I had it blindfolded I would have thought it was a normal bun.

I prefer the original flower bowl. This one only has banana for fruit, plus cacao nibs, chia seeds, granola and 2 types of nut butters (we chose cashew and almond) as topping. The cashew butter is a bit thick (typical of cashew butters) and doesn’t rly go well with the acai. The acai base is great as usual. Will stick with the original flower bowl!

Pistachio cake: p nice, there were subtle lime flavours in the cake, liked the pop of flavour that the lime presented. Didn’t really taste the cardamom. Cake has a nice texture, not dry and was rather palatable.

Hojicha cookie: still don’t rly like her cookies (I’ve tried once before this) as the soft texture & cakey is not my cup of tea. But the hojicha adequately present, it’s sweet but the hojicha balances it out a bit. Speculoos was ok but not lava, I wouldn’t mind if it wasn’t present too.

The last part of the cookie I had was actl quite nice tho? Because it was crunchy. It’s the part under the speculoos. The other parts of the cookie not directly under the filling were cakey.

Banana loaf: flavour was pronounced and it wasn’t sweet even though there is gula melaka. Texture-wise, a bit gummy. Like a sponge? I think it’s bc it’s an oil based cake? Walnuts provided a nice crunch.

Apple crumble bar: nice cinnamon earthy flavours, apple was soft but not limp/mushy (v slight crunch), kinda gooey and messy to eat but I liked this the most! Not too sweet too.

Overall, some hits and misses, but I appreciate that she changes up her menu pretty often + she does rather interesting & daring combinations which I’m up for (yknow not like a generic home baker that does Nutella / speculoos / standard bakes), so I wouldn’t mind trying another box!

Berries were tart and nice, this also got soggy as I ate it the day after purchasing it, but toasting it for a bit got it slightly crisp again. This is nice and buttery, but just a bit pricey. There's also some sort frangipane ish stuff on the exterior? Quite delicious but it didn’t blow me away as compared to the Kouign Amann.

Yo this was so good. It’s on the sweet side but I only had a quarter (shared it with my fam as usual :p) so it was alright. It’s so buttery! It got soggy because I tried it the day after I got it, but toasting it with a cast iron pan made it crisp and flaky at the top again, the bottom was like a moist, almost juicy (because of the butter+sugar) enriched laminated dough kind of thing and I enjoyed it very much. It’s pricey but I definitely would recommend!

For some time, this was the only thing I had tried from chateraise and it was also something that my mom bought several times. The outer choux is admittedly not comparable to a fresh cream puff as it’s not crisp, it’s a rather soggy puff as you would imagine a packaged one to be. But if you look past that, the custard + fresh cream is cold and smooth, and pretty tasty as it’s not too sweet / eggy / gelat. I don’t usually like cream things, but this is something that I enjoy and would repurchase!

Bread part was a bit oily, peanut was the drier and more pastey type (as opposed to more flowy / creamy pb) with sesame seeds. I liked the crunch the black ssm seeds gave! But quite heavy and heaty, I only had a quarter so its fine but i imagine it to be more heaty if I were to have more. Thought this was decent, not great but not terrible either, but my dad and sis really did not like it.

This was a collab with simple cafe. Thought the donut tasted quite average, it’s not bad by any means since it wasn’t greasy, was fluffy but somehow it didn’t make an impression. The pistachio filling wasn’t as rich and nutty as I had expected - I’m better off with dopa’s pistachio ice cream. Shall give simple cafe a visit for their donuts before I decide that it is indeed not worth the price or the trip, but yeah I thought this collab item would be more impressive.

Oops reviewed this before but here’s an updated review. Got them freshly baked this time, crust was crisp and flaky, egg custard was silky smooth and yummy, not overly eggy. One of the nicest egg tarts in SG! This and taicheong are my favs (but taicheong uses a buttery cookie crust so it’s a different style).

If you’ve tried this but find it meh, I urge you to toast it / eat it freshly baked. It makes all the difference! I’ve had both tongheng & taicheong egg tarts that made me question my rankings but that was because it was soggy after having kept it overnight :p

The donut is fluffy and q soft. To me it’s just like a circular bread dusted in fine sugar tho? I like it, but it’s not AMAZING and I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it. I guess the limited supply and sufficient demand (I see people buying it in bags of 10-20??) makes it more coveted + it’s only out after 11.30am. Okay la it wasn't greasy which is good, and a nice simple snack that doesn’t try to be over-the-top.
