My two cents:

So this time round I'm back at The Bakery Chef, for more lava toasts and also their mid-Autumn festival special mooncakes.

Let's start off by talking about the lava toasts first.

An important point to note would be the improvement in texture and taste of their brioche toasts. Perhaps it is due to a change in recipe or simply the opportunity to focus on creating quality-assured toasts (as the café experiences a lessening of crowd), the reason for which we shall never know.

All durian lovers should run straight for the Mao Shan Wang Durian Toast as it is packed full with the good and authentic stuff. The filling is rich and creamy and pungent, just like how a good Mao Shan Wang durian should be! The creamy rich texture combined with the cubes of toasted-to-crisp brioche toast... it is a well-executed fusion dessert that would appeal to any Asian.

For non-durian lovers (like myself), you would be pleased to know that we have an alternative reason to choose from — their Date Pudding with Toffee Lava Toast.

The Date Pudding resembles a plum-flavoured sponge cake, and the toffee... well it tastes like toffee (duh!). My preference for the Date Pudding with Toffee Lava Toast comes as no surprise as this new lava toast flavour is one-of-its-kind and the perfected sweet-savoury balance is undeniably alluring.

Now for the mooncakes, The Bakery Chef offers your traditional baked mooncakes with sweet lotus root paste (and the optional salted egg yolk).

Additionally they also offer a specialty of their own: Cheesecake Mooncakes!

The base of these mooncakes are made of digestive biscuit crumbs, with a different filling within, and lastly topped with a flavoured cheese mousse.

Here are the available flavours:
  • Yellow — White Lotus Paste
  • Purple — Honey Purple Potato
  • Pink — Red Wine Berries
  • Green — Matcha with Red Beans
  • Black — Chocolate Sesame with Crunchy Pearls
  • Orange — White Lotus Paste with Salted Egg Yolk

Each box comes with 4 mooncakes of your preferred flavour and is sold at $42.80. Make your order now through their website thebakerychef.oddle.me!
