I was at Pullman’s at 8.30 am in the morning and it was buzzing with activity!)
Seeing the queue and the luring smell, I could not help myself but to try some of the signature specials. I picked out their special Chikuwa Bun (If I spelled it right!) and some mini sweet potato bites. The bun had in it, fishcake and tuna while the sweet potato bites were covered by puff pastry with minced sweet potato within.
And the taste: Surprising really good! I’m a traditional bun kinda person. I like my sugar donuts and fried sausage buns or my almond chocolate croissants. So, this was totally new.
The Chikuwa bun was the most surprising: there was no fishy taste in the fishcake and the tuna had no strong smell too. However, the bread was little to light for my liking. Something a little heavier and denser would have been better for breakfast.
However, overall, I still gave it top marks for the taste: the texture and the seasoning is just right.
As for the sweet potato bites: pop one into your mouth and taste the natural sweetness of the filling. It was a real treat to the senses and gave me the sugar boost I was looking for in the morning. However, make no mistake: these small bites are 50 cents per piece. Not cheap at all!
Overall, Pullman’s is a great place for bread and certainly makes my day! Check it out!
