Matcha Cookie Bun ($2 promo)

Strong bitter undertones exude from the plenteous matcha cream filling. Not overpoweringly so, balanced out by the mildly sweet crumble topping.

In comparison to the ones Iโ€™ve seen on IG, it seems that theyโ€™ve at least doubled or tripled the amount of cream since them ๐Ÿ˜ณ Pretty worth the $2 if you ask me.

LOVED the injeolmi cream An amount this generous would usually be pretty off-putting to me, but its impressive light and airiness was hard to complain about.

I felt that the bits of red bean merely serve as an added texture to contrast the cream, as the scant amount really lacks any noticeable flavour. Perhaps a more prominent red bean could add a nice dimension in flavour, but honestly, I didnโ€™t mind the injeolmi being the center of attention.

I liked it best chilled. Overall really balanced texturally and flavour-wise, worth a buy and a rebuy!

The dough was so chewy!! It was filled with cubes of sharp cheese, with a slightly sour note that cut though the sweetness of the milky bun.

Made with rye, malt and scattered with walnuts. I really enjoyed this one! A light dough that tasted on the healthier side, with prominent grainy and nutty flavours.

A really intense matcha flavour this one ๐Ÿ˜ณ The filling was thick and creamy, encased by a soft and chewy dough. Definitely one for a matcha lover!

Theyโ€™re $1.70 each, and the mochi itself was flavoured! The buns were SOO soft and chewy buttt the fillings didnโ€™t match up โ˜น๏ธ

There is a bare semblance of a matcha flavour, instead impersonated by a mild and artificial hint of... green.
Also, I donโ€™t get what theyโ€™re trying to do with the BITS of red bean?? Maybe it work better would a red bean paste, because there was almost no red bean flavour, instead masked by the yam paste.
The flakey top has the tiniest bit of matcha flavour, but isnโ€™t flakey nor bitter enough to add anything to the bun.
Overall, this bun isnโ€™t doing much. Itโ€™s sweet and chewy, with a mild hint of each of the flavours. Iโ€™m just mad itโ€™s none of the things itโ€™s claiming to be.

I especially loved how the natural taste and sweetness of both the yam and pumpkin come through, theyโ€™re substantial in thickness and flavour without being too sweet. However, I wish the ratio were heavier on the yam, as there was less of it, and their pumpkin was already the stronger flavour to begin with.

And I know how people feel against the flowy, almost liquid-y mochi, but personally, I think it makes sense. The bun itself is really chewy, and I think that having a chewy mochi inside to compete with it wouldnโ€™t work. The flowy mochi adds another element of texture, that isnโ€™t the conventional chewy mochi.

Despite the negligible amount of yam filling, I still enjoyed the ๐๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž ๐๐จ๐ญ๐š๐ญ๐จ ๐˜๐š๐ฆ ๐’๐ฐ๐ž๐ž๐ญ ๐Œ๐จ๐œ๐ก๐ข ๐“๐š๐ซ๐ข๐ค ($๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ•๐ŸŽ ๐š๐ญ ๐“๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฌ). I mean, I honestly didnโ€™t even realise there was yam in it until I read the name of the bun properly after. The sweet potato is definitely the overriding flavour, in the form of smooth vibrant purple paste. As a sweet potato lover, I really didnโ€™t have a reason to complain. While the sweetness of the filling is palatable, it could do with less, considering that the crumb topping was also quite sweet.

The generosity of Rotiโ€™s fillings is definitely their strong point, with this ๐Ž๐ฉ๐ž๐ง ๐’๐ž๐ฌ๐š๐ฆ๐ž ๐๐ฎ๐ง ($๐Ÿ) serving as the perfect testament for that.

Despite the monstrous amount of filling, the black sesame wasnโ€™t too overpowering, BUT I would owe that to the fact that itโ€™s not very flavourful to begin with โ˜น๏ธ Tbh, the black sesame flavour just isnโ€™t very rich, taking a backseat to the buttery taste of the bun. The texture was also a bit sandy, even though it was a paste.

With that said, I would still say that this is a decent bun! I really love black sesame and for $1, yea, Iโ€™d get it again!

This ๐Ž๐ซ๐ก ๐๐ž๐ž ๐›๐ฎ๐ง ($๐Ÿ.๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ) from Roti might be the best yam bun Iโ€™ve tried in SG, and a very decently priced one at that!

The quality of the yam paste is definitely its strong point, it tastes exactly like a good, pure orh nee packed into a soft and chewy bun. The filling isnโ€™t the chunky type, but rather a completely smooth and creamy one, also not too sweet!

This screams good quality matcha, with a distinct bitter-sweet flavour profile, weighing heavier on the bitter side. Although almost all the elements were just matcha, there were still different nuances that thwarted a potential one-dimensional flavour; the contrasting textures and the smooth creaminess of the matcha filling complementing the crunchy matcha crumble on the top. The bread was airy, which was a good accompaniment to balance out the intense filling and toppings.

But, my biggest bread pet-peeve - the filling wasnโ€™t very evenly dispersed. ๐Ÿ˜” The chocolate sat in a corner, and I didnโ€™t even notice it was there until I nearer the end of the bread. For the parts that I could taste it, it went really well with the matcha!
