Asanoya Bakery, Bras Basah: The day we had pastries for lunch.


Following the salted egg craze, we decided to give Asanoya's salted egg croissants a try. The salted egg croisants at Asanoya sells out very fast (within 2 hours, according to most patrons) so we went there around 12pm on a weekday.
Fresh croissants at 11am, 1pm, and 3pm daily.

And.. *bonus* it is also within walking distance from Lasalle!

Mhmm. no camera photos for this post, only from the phone camera.

To be honest, I probably passed by this place on the way to the Singapore Art Museum and I never did notice as it looks like a regular glassed office building from the outside. Oops.

There are just too many choices and we did not know which to order. Took us quite some time to figure out which ones looked most appetising and worth-the-money. Decided to order a few pastries and share, cause we couldn't really pick our favourites.
The cashier looked at us funny when we told her that we wanted 5 pieces. She did offer to reheat the pastries though.

They also serve set lunches and beverages such as coffee and tea.

Asanoya don't sell the normal plain salted egg croissants anymore but they do have other fusions to make up for it.
Black and white, yin and yang. OK that was lame.

Matcha Salted Egg Croissant (S$4.90).
It tasted like kaya on the first bite (yikes!) but after a while the matcha and salted egg flavours started to become more obvious. It's more of the aftertaste, really.
Other than that, it was good but I'm not that much of a matcha person so I could just do with half a croissant.

Maple Salted Egg Croissant (S$4.90).
We didn't manage to make the filling flow out beautifully like the advertorial photos so here is a photo of it before it was cut open. Was skeptical at first but I absolutely love the play of sweet and savoury flavours. Fluffy fragrant croissant together with salted egg filling and a hint of maple sugar, this has got to be the favourite of the table.
Could have had the whole thing to myself -evil laugh-.

The French Potato (S$3.20) looked savoury enough so we had one too. Whole potato in French bread with some mayo and butter. The bread was a little tough so it was difficult to chew, especially when you have braces on.
Experimented a little and realised that it tastes better with mashed potato and there was no convenient way to actually have mashed potato in the French bread. Oh well, there's always the mash-your-own-potato-after-the-pastry-is-served option.

Ham and Cheese Crispy Donut (S$3, i suppose?). Crispy as promised, and flavourful too. However, it is sinful food for most people who count calories as it is deep-fried.

Royal Milk Tea Bread (S$4.20).
The loaf was soft, fluffy and had a strong tea taste to it (more than other tea-flavoured things elsewhere), you could almost say that you're drinking tea. It is also drizzled with condensed milk to spice sweeten it up a little.

The meal cost about S$20 in total and was to be split between 3 people so I guess it was worth the money if you don't mind having pastries for lunch (mind you, they are quite filling).

Will definitely visit again soon.
