Salted Egg Golden Lava Croissant

The salted egg yolk custard bun is my favourite bao due to its salted egg yolk custard fillings so when I read that this filling is now available in croissants, I know I must try them but the queues at the first bakery that started selling this croissant are very long so I decided to wait until the time I can buy them without needing to wait and queue. After a while other bakeries follow suit and sell this type of croissant but I did not get a chance to try those until recently.

I bought just one croissant to try. It is quite big.

I tear it into two and the filling flows out.

As I have not eaten any before, I could not do a comparison between them. On its own merit, I find this croissant delicious with a rich butter taste and its filling is exactly like those in my favourite buns.

  2. Looks good! :)

    Oh, we got ours at RM 6.50 also, I wonder if the bakeries are standardizing the prices to make it all similar across the board. Does yours have cheese grated on top? Or is that something else?

  6. When I saw the title, I thought it was the newly opened bakery shop by the Naza TTDI family. I was wrong and it was in Penang. LOL

  9. Is this the controversial one, so much unhappiness over the social media? Can't get any decently nice croissants, never mind with or without salted egg custard filling. :(

    1. That is the original bakery in pj. This is a different shop but similar product. No unhappiness in this shop because there is no queue.
