$2.80 | Finally understood the hype over this! Managed to grab 2 when I went in the afternoon. Topped with matcha crunch and powder, matcha bun was soft and fluffy. Filled with lots of matcha custard which are smooth and milky and ooze out when you bite! However, it’s a pity that you can’t really taste the chocolate in the custard.

Perfect for tea time!

Matcha Bun ($2.80) consisted of matcha crunch & green tea powder on top of the bread as green tea soft bun filled chocolate custard filling (can refer the picture for description of matcha bun) so basically I don't really understand why they wanted to do similar concept for matcha bun as donq bakery but they saw a lot of people bought matcha bun and always sold out within a couple of minutes after releasing on the shelves. They think that they should be trying to make matcha bun for attracting people to buy it. But I didn't saw people wanted to buy matcha bun and a lot of matcha bun left it at shelves when I was at there around late afternoon time. I felt the quality for matcha bun was not up to the standard even though they managed to replicate most of it. The matcha bun (cream) was quite milky and creamy for me as I didn't taste much chocolate custard inside the filling. The matcha crunch was quite hard for me and the green tea powder like to keep dropping off from the bread (felt a bit of waste when the powder was on the plate) saw @cinnamor011 doing matcha bun reviews on last two weeks so I didn't wanted to write it at that time. oh yes my top of the matcha bun got hit at Zojirushi Toaster Oven (u can google it and it is still selling at electronic store) as it was quite high height for toaster. my family and I even saw fire burning off on matcha bun *internal shock* and so I didn't wanted to talk about it anymore. you all can referred the picture that the top of bread is being cut off and revealed matcha filling from top of the bread.

saw this while getting their matcha bun and being a mentaiko lover, i couldn’t resist 😚 this had a generous amount of mentaiko paste slathered on top and inside plus the baguette was crusty and chewy, though i’d preferred it slightly crispier!

overall pretty decent but bread society’s is still the best i’ve tried so far

usually avoid cream buns cos i find them too sweet but this was just nice. the custard was v smooth and not overly milky too!! 😚 loved the bittersweet matcha crumbles on top which added a nice crunchy texture!

tried this both chilled and at room temp and i think i prefer the latter as the matcha taste is stronger!! only gripe is that the choc flavour is barely there but i personally don’t mind as matcha > choc

overall a rly good matcha bun that i’d get again if i’m in the area!! 🍵

really wanted to try this to see how it compares to the donq one hehe. the filling tasted more chocolate-y rather than matcha-ey and much sweeter than donq’s which i don’t really mind. the crumbly top is just as amazing as donq’s!the bread was a no go for me though, i couldn’t finish it when there was no more filling left for me to have it with bc it was just too dry and not tasty enough to be eaten on it’s own 😪 not sure if i would get it again but definitely worth a try if u didn’t manage to get the donq one!:)

this bread has an uncanny resemblance to the one from provence 🤔 tried the provence one a few years back and didn’t really like it but can’t rmb why. however, i did enjoy this though. the custard filling was smooth and not too sweet but the bread was meh. overall, it’s still okay and i might get it again!
