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! 😊
I can’t remember when was the last time I’ve eaten one of these. I think it’s more than 7yrs?
This was introduced to me by one of my colleague who’s Koreanovela fanatic. We went to a Korean store in Pearl Drive, Ortigas and was just surprised of tons of Korean goodies!
The taste of the melon is not too strong, maybe because of the cream and milk mixed in it. I advice to have it totally frozen so it won’t melt easily.
It’s a bit pricey compared to local brands because it’s from Korea but nonetheless, it’s worth the price. 😉
Next time, I’ll try the strawberry and mango flavour! Yum!
When my mom was removing the chicken breast from the bones, I asked her to take off the skin so that I can make my favourite snack… Fried Chicken Skin!
We used to buy it in the streets but since sellers seem to be missing for months now, I decided to make my own. A few salt, pepper and some breading mix…voila! It’s now ready to fry and eat!
When eating these, you can dip it in chilli-vinegar (red chillies soaked in vinegar), salt and pepper. After everything is consumed, drink the remaining vinegar! Woohoo!
Craving satisfied! 😊
