Like many others, I’ve been sampling many salted egg yolk dishes recently – what’s there not to love? Thick, creamy, sweet & salty – all in one bite. It’s so good, it literally goes with anything – waffles, ice cream, cakes, donuts, bread, crabs, veggies… you get my point.
It’s such a big thing that salted egg yolk dishes are sprouting up everywhere, and people are rushing around to try each one (me included, guilty as charged!).
We chanced upon The Bread Society today (ION, food basement) and was surprised to see signs promoting their salted egg yolk croissants, and we thought – why not? We bought a box of 6 for $5.50 and OH MY… I could gush about it all day, but to spare you from dying of boredom, here’s 5 reasons why you should drop by and get yourself some. Like now.
Price at The Bread Society:
1 for $1 / 6 for $5.50 / 10 for $8
(seems like its priced differently at BreadTalk – 1 for $1 / buy 6 get 1 free/ buy 10 get 2 free)
#5: It’s $1.00 (or even cheaper)
Delicious & pretty snacks come expensive these days, especially if they are still trending. The cheapest I’ve come across is $4.80 for a salted egg yolk donut at The Bakery Chef, and this is wayyyyyyyy better.
This will definitely be the best $1 you have spent in a long time, and you can even buy a box of 10 for your friends and be their favourite person for the day.
#4: It’s MINI.
You will probably say “It’s $1 because it’s so much smaller than the others!” and YES, you are right – but that’s why you should get it!
If you like your salted egg yolk thick, creamy and grainy like me – too much is definitely a bad thing. With a larger serving, I find myself regretting the last few bites, since it becomes more and more “gelat“.
These mini croissants are perfectly bite-sized, enough to wow your taste buds and leave you craving for more! Plus, since salted egg yolk is super high in cholesterol, sodium and fat, it’s probably better for your health to have a mini portion. #justsaying
If you had a terrible day and need to cheer yourself up, you can indulge in 1 or 2 more.
#3: It’s CONVENIENT
Travelling all the way for a taste of salted egg yolk croissant from XXX place? Not my cup of tea. Sure, I’d love to taste all those gorgeous looking pastries, but it’s just so difficult to travel to remote places just to eat them. Unless I’m in the area, it’s just not practical.
Bread Society / BreadTalk is available in more locations, and usually in accessible ones (the Bread Society I walked past was at ION basement). PLUS, I didn’t have to wait – I could just get my box of croissants and leave (and snack on them ASAP).
I know patience is a virtue, I’m working on it…
#2: It’s still INSTAGRAMMABLE
Most $1 buns are hardly found on Instagram, they are just not that photogenic. Instead, you see $15 waffles and $20 pancakes looking all gorgeous on Instagram. That’s just the way it is – but now, say hello to this pretty croissant.
It’s $1, and it’s fine-looking. Tear it in half, and TA-DAH! Money shot right there.
#1: Most importantly, it is DELICIOUS.
Tip: Keep your eye out for the fresh croissants. It’s infinitely better if you get them warm and flaky.
I was fortunate to get mine freshly baked – the croissant was warm, flaky & buttery, and the salted egg yolk filling was thick, grainy and on-point.
Seriously, what more can you ask for?
