I was quite disappointed with these egg tarts because they failed to impress me despite the hype and it’s a rather steep price for an average-tasting egg tart 😢 The cookie base (pastry wasn’t available) wasn’t buttery enough for my liking and though the egg pudding was silky, it wasn’t rich enough either. I had Tai Cheong egg tarts the next day and I can confidently say that they are superior.

It’s a little bit on the pricier side for a small loaf, but it’s so soft and fluffy with yummy kaya filling folded between. Would be even better toasted!

I think I might have just found my new favourite bun 😍 Soft, warm and fluffy, each bite of this bao was comforting. The sweet potato filling was generous and not too sweet! It tasted healthy as I couldn’t taste any added sugar. Plain mantous are affordable at $1.20 each too.

I love duke bakery so much! I still remember the times in secondary school when me and my friends would hover around the bakery trying all the free samples, only to get chased out at times.

Now that it’s pandemic season, the breads are packed into individual plastic bags beforehand to minimise contact with people! This bread was sweet and fluffy, coloured a lovely lilac from purple sweet potato powder. The filling inside was sweet and creamy, although I wished there was more inside!! I was looking through other reviews and it seemed like mine was a little sparse.

sometimes I wish my stomach was just a bit bigger
