I am a complete sucker for anything with salted egg yolk but trust me, this is a pleasant accidentally find. We stumbled upon this lovely salted egg yolk croissant at the newly opened Seven Oaks Bakery Cafe at Taman Pelangi during our (Tony, Hazel and me) mini food trail in Jb yesterday. We were all very full when we reached this newly opened cafe. But I guess luck was on our side for our food hunting session.
The cafe can be easily spotted as it is at the corner with very new and grand renovation. It is located just opposite Coffee Signature, another cafe with highly instagrammable signature drink named Sweet Rain (甜心雨).The 4 storeys high building consists of a bakery on the ground level, a beautiful victorian theme cafe at level 1, a spacious event space with karaoke system on level 2 and an open space garden concept on level 3. By the time we reached Seven Oaks, we were already very full from our previous food hunting experience (more details will be up soon). Hence we decided to just chillax and catch up with each other over some beverages (Hot Green Tea Latte, RM 11.50 & Hot Honey Lemon, RM 8.50). But while we go browsing at the bakery, we found the words ‘SALTED EGG YOLK CROISSANT” screaming at us and suddenly extra tummy space just grow out of nowhere for it. lol. I am sure I am not the only one who is guilty of this, right? Doesn’t these beautiful golden brown croissants make your heart palpitated? It sure does for me and I was so excited that I hand carried a box of them back!After we have selected the bakes (in this case, it was just the salted egg yolk croissant) at the ground floor bakery, we passed it to the service crew to heat it up and headed to the cafe area.Although the croissant didn’t flow as I was expecting it to be (as it was not very warm by the time we took this shot. Maybe because we took too long to take pictures, lol). It has a beautiful buttery aroma from the croissant with a balanced sweet and salty creamy salted egg yolk custard filling. Heavenly much? You reckon.
P.S: Please eat it while it is hot. It really tasted so much better than when it is not. Trust me k. The whole place is so beautiful and grand that it looks like a palace! There is even a huge chandelier. I am sure a hefty amount thrown in for the renovation and there is even a doorman who will greet and open the door for us when we exit Seven Oaks.Following the salted egg yolk hype from Kuala Lumpur which is 6 hours drive from Singapore, Seven Oaks seems to be the most legit and nearest place if you want to get a taste the salted egg yolk croissant. So do give it a try and share with me if you like it as much as I do. My brother even commented that I should have bought more after having one of the croissant. Priced at RM5.90 ($1.96 SGD) for one, I kinda regret not getting more. T.T Seven Oaks, I will be back soon! =)
