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.
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.
Tasted just like my morning breakfast of Kaya and toast.
