Snow Chocolate Bun Smile Dec 28, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Bakery

 

 

 
There was a Japanese Bakery in JCube, it was located at a corner away from walking crowd. Initally I thought this Japanese Bakery was selling only Japanese Pastry, but they also had local flavour pastry.

The Snow Chocolate Bun attracted my attention. The swirl looking sugary top looked cute. Hence, I bought one at $1.20.

The Snow Chocolate Bun had a sweet smelling aroma, I guessed should be the sugary top. The bun was slightly stiff in texture, not so fluffy. The filling inside was chocolate flavoured custard. The cocoa was over powering the custard filling, it was like eating Royce chocolate which I loved it. 

Overall, this Snow Chocolate Bun was tasty especially the chocolate custard filling inside was so good to munch. 
 
Spending per head: Approximately $1.20(Tea)

Pineapple Cake OK Dec 28, 2014

My friends told me that there was a Taiwanese bakery at Star Vista that made authentic Pineapple Tart at their kitchen. They called it Pineapple Cake. Looking at their poster, they mentioned that their pastry were all using original ingredients, no preservatives or colourings. Hence, I bought a box of 10 at $22.50. 

The Pineapple Cake looked golden brown and had a mild buttery aroma. The Pineapple Cake was hard when bit on. The fillings was also stiffer than other pineapple tart, according to their ingredient list, the fillings were 100% pineapple. The fillings though hard had real pineapple taste and fibre texture. The sweetness of the pineapple fillings was just right. 

Overall, the Pineapple tart was average tasting. I would prefer a softer outer pastry and softer pineapple fillings.

Golden Sands Bun OK Dec 28, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook

Seems like the Golden Sands Bun still as popular this year. I saw another bakery selling Golden Sands Bun, this time at Mugiya at City Square Mall basement. This bakery had similar concept as Baker's Talent, the buns were freshly baked and the customers order the bread over the bread counter.

I bought the Golden Sands Bun, it was $1.20. The Golden Sands Bun was still hot and had a strong buttery aroma. The bun was soft to touch but the texture was not as fluffy, it was similar to Breadtalk buns, more stiff and more dough. The fillings was still hot and flowing like lava. The fillings tasted of custard with salted egg yolk and caster sugar. It was sweet and salty. 

Overall, this Golden Sands Bun tasted average, I still prefered the Golden Sands Bun from Baker's Talent.

Curry Katsu Don OK Dec 28, 2014

Out of so many Ramen Restaurants in Westgate, there was a Japanese Restaurant on the top level that specialised in Tonkatsu. The staffs were mostly Japanese, hence their food should be very Japanese authentic. 

I had ordered the Curry Katsu Don, from their menu, its their speciality. The price was $22.90. The Curry Katsu Don took about 15 minutes, I guess they freshly fried the Katsu when order. While waiting, the staff had already served us the shredded cabbage salad and tea.

On the table, there was a few sauces. There were sesame sauce, katsu sauce and spicy sauce.  I tried both sauces, sesame and katsu sauces onto my salad. The sesame smelt heavy in toasted sesame seed while the katsu sauce was like vinegar thicken sauce. I prefered my salad with katsu sauce, the sourish gave it more appetising.

The Curry Katsu Don came. I can feel the heat radiated from the kastu fillet. The kastu fillet was golden brown in colour and very crispy on the outside. Inside was tender and juicy meat, though I felt the meat was lean and I preferred the fatty meat version.

The curry sauce was disappointing. There was not much of the Japanese sweet curry taste or aroma. It seem like instant Japanese curry cube from supermarket. 

Overall, I felt that this Curry Katsu Don was average. I would still prefer Katsu with fatty meat inside.

 
Spending per head: Approximately $22.90(Dinner)

Glass Jelly Drink Smile Dec 28, 2014

There was a new drink stall at walkway to Bugis Downtown Line MRT. This stall was opened by Lao Ban Beancurd according to their signboard. I just bought a glass jelly drink to quech my thrist. 

I thought this was just a normal local glass jelly drink but I was wrong after drink it. The glass jelly drink tasted quite herbal, similar to taiwanese style glass jelly. The glass jelly was not in agar agar texture but was more chewy type like those taiwanese style glass jelly. The drink was sweeter than expected, this stall did not have the choice of chooing the sugar level.

Overall, I find this glass jelly drink unique and it tasted good, the price was also similar to Mr Bean local glass jelly drink.
