This is one of the best custard bun that I’ve tasted, Din Tai Fung’s Golden Lava Salted Egg Yolk Bun.
First time I’ve tasted this was in Din Tai Fung Singapore (Tampines) and one local restaurant in Bugis. The price is Bugis is cheaper and has a compared to Din Tai Fung’s 😉
What I love about it is the lava-like flow of the salted egg custard after biting the bun! Some might taste the strong fresh-like taste of the egg (like my mom) but for me it’s normal. The secret is to balance that taste with the saltiness of the salted egg and the buttery sweetness of the custard. Just to comment, the bun is better tasting in Singapore compared to here in the Philippines. I don’t think it met the consistency of the custard’s texture and taste.
If you haven’t tried it, try it now! Make sure that you eat it while it’s still hot, to experience the flow of the custard from the bun. Also, if you have suggestions on restos who serve good salted egg yolk bun, please do share. Enjoy! 😊
