E10: Asanoya Matcha/Maple Salted egg croissant & National Gallery Singapore

Today I’m sharing quite a few things. Food, outfit and National Gallery Singapore! It was on a saturday again. We always go out on saturday but not recently.. cos it’s all about the house now..

We met at Capitol and purposefully take this photo under Simon’s brother’s name. lol! Had my favourite llaollao, bought his shirt from benjamin barker and off we head to Asanoya!

This was during the period where I was quite crazy over salted egg yolk bread/pastries so when we know that Asanoya has pretty good croissants we planned a trip there immediately. :p

The shopfront.

Me infront of Boulangerie Asanoya.

I was very excited to try the croissant over here because there were alot of positive reviews about this place and the food. Furthermore it’s a Japanese gourmet bakery & cafe, so it’s a must go!!! Honestly I’m quite biased, as long as it’s related to Japan, I will give it a thumbs up.

Finally went inside and this is the menu. Guess what drinks we ordered? Flat white as usual. lol!

I was there because of these 2 things. The first is this maple salted egg croissant $4.90 and the matcha salted egg croissant which I will show below. 🙂

Our order for the day! Only had a cuppa of flat white because I was full from our lunch.

The maple and matcha that looked similar on the outside.

The problem with flowing lava is that I must make sure that the cut is precise. So that I can capture all the awesome goodness oozing out.

First we tried the matcha salted egg! It was quite a weird sight to see some greenish liquid oozing out..

was worried that it will taste weird.. but it was actually pretty good!

They were so generous with the filling by the way! I don’t know how the mixture was made but this is really unique and surprising!

yumyum matcha!

Next we tried the maple salted egg croissant and even though it’s not so satisfying to the eyes when it comes to the fillings, the taste was heavenly!

ahhh you see you see..

The sauce together with the crispy pastry and fluffy/soft dough just made the whole experience so so good. I’m sure after my description you know which one I liked more right? 😀

I preferred the maple one because it’s a really good combi with the salted egg. It’s very addictive and I don’t feel that it’s oily at all. On the other hand the matcha can be quite overpowering. I think it’s because of the strong matcha taste that covers up the salted egg but Simon liked this better though. :p

Suggest you head over and try out the croissants and let me know which one you like! =D
