Savoury Croissants with an Asian Twist

Full review and pics on www.dairycream.blogspot.com

Recently tried their new savoury croissants and my favourite was the "Flying Pig" out of the four. 
the sparkling chemistry between the subtly spiced chorizos and the sweet caramelized onion jam in the "Flying Pig" left me clamouring for more. Its miso dressing did not overpower the dish and I wouldn't even mind if the sausage was spammed with even more of the tasty onion relish on top. 

Speaking of the "Rolling Dumpling", I would not have guess that it was inspired from Xiao Long Bao if not for the menu description as it lacked the distinctive traits of this classic chinese dumpling such as the slurpy pork broth. Yes, there were pickled ginger and succulent minced meat but the black vinegar dressing could not lift up the dish.

Super disappointed

I was so excited about eating here - recommended by so many people I know. The ambience and the setting were alright but the food did not live up to the expectation. I had the lava cake - it was not as hot as it is supposed to be, the texture was weird and the top of the cake was burnt. The "pearfect" juice was everything but perfect : the celery leaves were rotten and there was weird foam on top. It looked like a dirty aquarium. The staff was not especiallt friendly - not even bringing me a forl with my cake. Overall, the experience was poor. It is definitly overrated.

Besides kouign amann, I would also recommend the apple crumble or anything made of apple from TBB. Sandwiches were not really exceptional but still good. However, I was abit confused about the branding... While TBB seemed to imply that they are a local bakery serving local breads or pastries but this is clearly a french bakery. The service staff at this branch were quite rude and they gave you either blank stares or frustrating and impatient expressions while I tried to make up my mind on what to order. Furthermore there were no one behind me. Don't know if they were used to serving caucasians or what and I felt that they were not very friendly with the locals.
