I know everyone got damn excited when i posted about salted egg croissant being available in JB – here, I can’t imagine how many of you are HYPERVENTILATING while reading this.


Of course, Flavour Flings at Hougang are the pioneers of this amazing piece of pastry, especially since they are the ones who have salted egg eggs benedict and so on. This halal cafe sitting under the HDB blocks in Hougang should be expecting throngs of queues and hello kitty like queues over the weekend, I suppose, just for their overpriced salted egg croissants.

How did these fare? Is it good? OMG got as good as the one you say in JB one not?Photo 22-1-16, 12 18 55 PM

Honestly… No leh. While the buttery croissant was nicely done, flaky and not too buttery to complement the salted egg sauce, I thought the salted egg sauce had a strange aftertaste. Something I could not exactly put a finger to. Photo 22-1-16, 12 22 00 PM
I wished for a thicker consistency and a more sandy feel to the sauce, and possibly more FLOW, I was surprised that the different after taste did not quite put me off and in fact, it was strangely addictive still. But still, not as good as the one in JB feels and tastes. Photo 22-1-16, 12 23 19 PMYou know what put me off? The price. This croissant would set you back $7.50. No way. Is it your flour for the croissant is like gluten free, the salted egg sauce is laid by the duck from Antarctica, and your rent is as high as renting a space on Orchard Road? If you answered no to any of those questions, you should probably revise the price. 

Well.. Since this is the only Salted Egg croissant we have now in Singapore, I guess we will have to make do with it. Otherwise, let’s go eat liushabao together to fix that liu sha cravings or visit this list for more of those salted egg yummies!
