Joe and Dough has always been my favorite go to cafe because they not only have decent coffee and sandwiches, they’ve got wifi too! Besides, #SUPPORTLOCAL. Haha! I’ve been to Joe and Dough COUNTLESS OF TIMES, because they seem to be everywhere – 9 outlets and counting. I may have missed some as well.

Today, the first day of March, they’ve launched their very own rendition of SALTED EGG buns, riding on the waves of the recently popular Salted Egg Croissants and of course, the never ending salted egg creations which you guys can find here!

Here’s a look at their Hot Cross Buns.

This is their Salted Egg Yol Hot Cross Buns ($4.50)

Well.. Joe and Dough promised that it WILL flow. But.. Did it flow for us? Check out the following videos.


And it finally did on the THIRD. Check out the FB video I posted here:

We had to redo this THRICE, because it didn't flow. We thought the ratio of bread to salted egg sauce were quite in-proportionate.Despite the disappointing no flow and minimal sauce, I have to say that the salted egg sauce was quite good and textures on point.

The servers seemed perplexed at the hardened salted egg sauce despite heating it up for the second time. We were too because the bun was so hot, I was getting all excited. Hence the irritated TSK at the end. HAHA!

How did it taste? 

We thought the sauce to bun ratio had a huge disparity. There was simply too much bun to sauce that we were unable to savor the entire bun with the salted egg sauce and had to dip sparingly. And the bun on its own was pretty bland like a normal empty bread. What a description, Clara. Haha!

BUT. Despite the disappointing attempts to let it flow and the meagre sauce, I’m not going to discount the fact that the salted egg sauce actually tasted GREAT. We liked it, as it wasn’t too sweet and that sandy texture was on point! I was, in fact, pretty impressed! $4.50 for a bun like this might be a little too steep though.

If you’re interested to try, yet feeling a little lazy to leave your desk at work to get them, why not order them online? Joe and Dough has their delivery service HERE, and besides the salted egg hot cross buns, you could also get your lunch delivered right to your HOMES or OFFICES!
