Golden Sand Croissant


MYR5.90 per piece. Here is another bakery getting onto the bandwagon of the highly sought-after Salted Egg Golden Lava Croissant by making their own version named Golden Sand Croissant. This is the branch at Tesco, Mutiara Damansara next to The Curve. I did not buy any because the croissants did not call out to me even though I love to eat salted egg yolk custard fillings.

Close up view. Later I noticed that the promoters have cut up one croissant into 4 pieces and asking us to try. I wanted to take a piece but my hands were dirty so I did not take any. The texture of the inner parts of the croissant looks like bread and I overheard that when one buys two croissants, there is a special price of MYR9.90 for both. Is anyone keen to go to King's Confectionery to try this?

  1. Golden Sand Croissant, yes it does appeal to us if the filling is sweet like custard, but I would prefer it to be softer like bread, croissant is a bit dry I feel

    1. Then this would suit you because from what I saw, the texture is nothing like croissant, it is exactly like bread.

  2. These are the ones with the salted egg custard inside? All the hoo-ha a while ago, not anymore. Seems everyone is doing it now over there. Here, we can't get decent plain croissants even. Sobssss!!!!!

    1. Should be according to the chinese words. I think this would be right at home with the croissants in Sibu.

  5. If that's powdered sugar on top, it's not for me then.

    1. I guess you will need to see it for yourself to find out. I was looking at the inner texture so did not pay much attention to the white thingy on top.

  6. You mean your hands really dirty due to touching some dirty stuff earlier, or just dirty because you have been out and have not washed your hands?

    For me, free food would make me forget about my hand's cleanliness :/ ...

    1. It is the latter (been out and not washed my hands since). Now that I think about it, should have just taken one piece which is one quarter of it just to take a photo of the inner texture which looks exactly like bread and not croissant.

  7. I wonder what is the filling? I would prefer my croissants plain.

    1. According to the chinese name, the fillings should be the currently popular salted egg yolk custard. I saw that the fillings is yellow orangy flowy like. Should have taken a piece of sample.

  9. Ya I saw this and would probably cave in one day. :) But must be only a fraction as nice as the proper ones freshly baked and served hot.

  11. hmmm, looks like either their golden sand croissants aren't that nice that people want to buy, or they have just launched this new item and not publicise it enough..

    1. I think if you want to eat fresh from the oven, either you make your own or you wait at the bakery for a fresh batch just out from the oven. :)
