The salted egg yolk croissant trend has been catching up in our region, with cafes in Singapore, Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur coming up with their renditions of croissants that are filled with salted egg yolk.
Suddenly, everyone’s all about salted egg yolk croissant. Like, everyone.
But do you know that the original salted egg yolk croissant was first created by Urban Bakery Works in Hong Kong?
Urban Bakery is a chic and trendy cafe at Landmark that focuses on croissants (made with French A.O.C butter), with no less than seven different flavours – such as almond, crunchy peanut butter, Belgian chocolate, cheddar cheese, and brulee – available every day.
The Liu Sha Croissant is legendary. We are not even kidding when we say that we can easily eat two to three croissants at a go.
What you can expect from Urban Bakery is a molten custard croissant that oozes with sooo much goodness, your heart might just explode with excitement.
You get your flaky croissant with a buttery taste that reminds you of France – well, these peeps are dedicated. They use flour and butter from France to achieve a taste so close to what the French love.
Then, they upped the ante by injecting a savoury salted egg yolk filling with pleasantly thick consistency. The end result is a treat so brilliant that everyone in Asia is emulating now.
The other winner here at Urban Bakery is the Ball Law Cowssant – a hybrid of croissant and po luo bao (pineapple bun) complete with a slab of French butter.
It is no secret now. Urban Bakery at Landmark is our favourite place to be at when we need some cakes and croissants in Hong Kong. For the love for creativity, Urban Bakery, you win.
