Antoinette – It’s A Croissant Party – Salted Egg, Chili Crab, Matcha, Kaya, Cheese, Salted Caramel

The salted egg croissant craze swept through Singapore, and Antoinette was not spared. Helming the pastry kitchen is Chef Pang, who specializes in delicate and intricate French pastries.

We were not surprised when Antoinette would release their own version of Salted Egg croissant ($6.50) which was our personal Favourite in Singapore – Flaky and buttery croissant with a grainy salted egg texture that resembled that of a mooncake.

Not long later, the local Flavour Chili Crab Croissant ($7.50) was launched which a slightly sweeter profile compared to the chili crab that we were used to.

The Salted Caramel Croissant ($6) had a well balance taste. Both sweet and saltish in a single bite. The croissant was definitely the highlight and any flvour would go pretty well with it.

For the 3 latest croissants – Charcoal Kaya, Matcha and Quatre Fromages Croissant all priced at $6, our Favourite was the latter.

Using matcha powder from the city of Nishio in the Aichi prefecture of Japan, the matcha taste was slightly bitter, distinct and not overwhelming. Smooth and rich, we loved the generous amount that flows out when sliced open.

The Quatre Fromages Croissant ($6) was a mixture of aged Cheddar, Gruyère, Parmesan and Mozzarella. Smooth, creamy, rich and savory.

The Charcoal Kaya Croissant ($6) was made using in house Kaya, created during SG50. Made with coconut cream and Pandan juice, the mixture leaned towards a sweeter palate.

Tasted just like my morning breakfast of Kaya and toast.
