Vanilla Bean Donut ($3.80)
You could literally see the tiny specks of (real) vanilla bean in the cream, and yes the vanilla taste is strong! It's kinda closer to vanilla custard, and I would pick this as my second favourite.

Hoijicha Donut ($3.80)
Definitely generous with their fillings, and you can also taste the Hoijicha, only thing is there's something about the Hoijicha flavour that isn't to my palette.

Taro Coconut Donut
This is hands down my favourite out of all that I've tried. The taro flavour was pretty strong, and the coconut flavour made it even more fragrant. The donut itself was soft, and I pretty much loved every bit of this donut.

These Pockets are something like a cross between Croquettes and "Japanese Curry Puffs", coated with Bread Crumbs (Panko) and deep-fried to give a crispy and bread-like texture.

Having walked past these pockets each time I visited @plazasingapur, I finally gave in to their visuals and the 3 for $8.70 deal. Sadly I didn't receive them hot, but I ate them right away, and am surprised they still remained really crispy.

Cheese Curry
Pretty much the best out of the 3, the addition of cheese to their strong and flavourful Japanese Curry was really welcome.

Brown Beef Curry
Tbh tastes pretty similar to the Cheese Curry, I mean it's prob similar curry that's used to make this. It's filled with basically what you'd expect from Japanese Curry - Potatoes, Carrots, and the Beef itself. I'd still pick the Cheese Pocket over this though.

Ebi Gratin
Decided to get something different from the rest - since everything was curry-based, and this was cream-based instead. It was a good choice to get something different, else it'd all probably taste almost the same, but felt that it was really mild and doesn't pack as much flavour as the Cheese Curry Bun.

I prob wouldn't head there specially for it, but if I'm nearby and decided I'm craving fried curry bread again then maybe, I may pay another visit, and just for the Cheese Curry.

Overall Rating: 7/10

Became a huge fan of Pecan Pie, thanks to Han's really good Pecan Pie (albeit being q sweet) - but this was kinda lacklustre. The pecan taste wasn't strong enough, and there was more tart than the fillings itself, but their other flavours could be good, which I wouldn't mind giving it another try next time considering the tart itself was decent.

Tbh forgot it says "lava" so I didn't expect it to be so flowy, but it's just like eating liushabao except in a pastry form.

3rd time buying their Wife Biscuit, and I still really like it! It's even better when you eat it immediately, when it's still hot - but even when it's cold, the sweetness and slight chewiness from the wintermelon is still enjoyable!

Gluten free Valrhona 70% brownie ($4.50)
This was extremely fudgey and gooey, and definitely not cakey. Would say that it gets jelak very quickly because of the rich chocolate, so would be best to share it with someone.

Been highly raved and is always sold out pretty quickly, so I'm glad to have had the chance to at least try their bookies and brownie when I headed down to try their bakes.

Brookie ($3.70)
A decent cookie that's really soft with gooey chocolate after heating up. Wouldn't consider it amazing but can give it a try if you are nearby.

Matcha Macadamia Cookie ($3.70)
Topped with Valrhona White Chocolate, this cookie had an earthy Matcha flavour, which although isn't the strong bitter kind, still was pretty enjoyable imo. I did like the addition of macadamia - definitely more fragrant with it.

This hidden cafe near Serangoon Gardens had recently gained some popularity, especially for its Sandwiches and their interior - quite a chill place to be at, with friendly staff too.

Candied Pecan Pesto Brie ($5.50)
This item is relatively new on their menu, and it is closer to a savoury one, with the brie (cheese) embedded within the pastry, and made with pesto. Being a huge fan of pecan, I'd love for slightly larger pecan bits for more pecan flavour to go along with the pastry.

Sweet Potato + Butter + Maple Syrup ($6)
You'd find 2 types of sweet potato (purple and orange) in this sourdough pastry, and the outside is slightly sticky from the maple syrup that's drizzled on top. Do toast it before eating, so you'd get a pastry that's crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The maple syrup does provide some sweetness, combined with a slight tangy sourdough flavour.

[Thai Baang]
Honestly everyone has been talking about their bread, but their Ma Ti Shu (Beh Teh Sor) is actually not bad a try! This pastry has many layers (as seen in the photo) and is pretty flaky and crunchy. I liked that the malt filling isn't too sweet, and wasn't too sticky as well. Quite a nice snack to have anytime of the day!
