Their tiramisu packaging makes it look big it’s actl quite small!! Ordered their earl grey tiramisu. Quite average tasting but there’s a strong impression of earl grey tea. The bergamot was quite prominent and they even had some lemon zest in their mascarpone cream filling which was a nice addition. Was it worth $9.80? Definitely not.

Really aesthetic place that reminds me of Korea’s cafes. Drink (Mango Momo) came in a can that is sealed on the spot (can opt for regular cup also)! The drink ($6.80) was average— coconut milk, grapefruit pulp, mango cubes and sago. Nothing more, nothing less. 100% sugar was okay, surprisingly not as sweet as I expected it was gonna be. Tasted like Koi’s 50% sweetness!

Amazing assortment of cupcakes! Even their doughnuts and tarts look so mouthwatering. Their chestnut cream (made specially for HerWorld) was simply stellar! Topped with a decadent roasted chestnut buttercream, the flavour of this vanilla cupcake with a vanilla buttercream core got elevated to the next level. Nutty and a little smoky, sweet and buttery rich on the palate, it left me wanting for more!!

📝 Matcha powder, Red bean paste, warabimochi, chocolate, custard, soybean powder
~$2.90-$5.50~

TL;DR— Love the obanyaki with warabimochi inside 🤤😍 However, if you want something richer/more matcha heavy, get the matcha custard! You know what, just get both HAHAHA!! Skip the chocolate. Get Mr Bean pancakes instead if you don’t want matcha related ones. The warabimochi in the cup was a little “jelat“ for me after a few pieces 😶

I LOVE this. Will get this every time I pass by @108matchasanrosg !! The anko paste inside is daintily sweet and pairs well with the matcha warabimochi that was delightfully bouncy and chewy. One qualm would be that I wished the edges were crispier to provide a more distinct textural contrast.

My greedy ass will get this along with the red bean+warabimochi cuz this was a delight to have as well!! The custard hit the sweet spot (double entendre intended heheh) and had the right consistency. Not too goopy or runny!! Had a really nice mouthfeel to it as well, with creamy matcha goodness spreading all across my palate 😩🤤

Bad idea. Skip this lol. Could taste that they used couverture chocolate (I think it’s 55% dark) but the texture of the chocolate custard was sooo weird and was strangely goopy unlike the matcha one 😖😖 Just get Mr Bean’s pancakes if you planning to get flavours other than matcha from this store!! Mr Bean makes 😍😍😍 pancakes. Bouncy, supple, soft, chewy and had a nice ratio of filling to batter!!

Uhhhh, have mixed feelings about this one... The outside powder dusting is not really nice as I feel like the kinako (soybean flour) and matcha powder flavour profiles don’t really complement each other, resulting in a weird taste. Tastes like the dried brown withered leaves you pick up as a child to smell LOL OK I WAS A CURIOUS CHILD I CAN FEEL THE JUDGEMENT 😭😂 However, the texture of the warabimochi mochi itself is 😍😍. Silky, bouncy and chewy all at the same time. Sufficiently sweet as well. But I had trouble having all 8 by myself. I feel like it’s way better on a parfait instead. So most probs I won’t purchase it again 😅😅

📝Cloud-like peanut cream, red bean paste, mochi, peanut powder
~$2~

TL;DR— IF YOU LOVE INJEOLMI BINGSU, GET THIS!! Soft bread filled generously with light and airy peanut cream, red bean paste and mochi. Decently sweet. A good pick me up but be warned you might not be able to stop after having just 1 🙈🙈🙈

The bun is filled with this cloud-like cream (diplomat cream?) that’s mildly sweet with notes of vanilla which is enveloped in the light embrace of peanut-y aroma. The cream is so light and airy it’s as if I’m consuming a wet peanut cloud. Plus, there’s a light layer red bean paste (with skin) AND mochi.
Also, the bread is so soft and fluffy (most probs tangzhong based bread so if you’re sensitive to gluten, should try to eat in moderation hehe)!! Hello, what’s there not to love?! The skin in the red bean paste makes it come off as not something that is bulk bought but rather, something handmade which I like. Also, idk how the mochi is soooo stretchy but I dig it.

Overall, they really hit home-run with this bread. All of the elements of “injeolmi red bean” are in harmony with each other—nothing overpowering each other and is satisfactorily sweet (IMO). Also, the textural contrast in this bread is quite surprising especially when it only costs $2. Will definitely buy again (and many times at that LOL!!)
