Move aside, liu sha baos – salted egg yolk croissants have landed, and people are going a little crazy over them. Think crisp and flaky outsides layered with soft, buttery insides that ooze molten, salted egg yolk custard when bitten into.

It’s a symphony for your taste buds: the light sweetness of the creamy egg yolk custard, and the buttery crispness of the croissant that kind of leaves you looking like you buried your mouth in a bowl of nachos cheese and flaky pastry.

You can thank Flavour Flings, a Halal-certified café in Hougang, for introducing these babies onto their menu. At $7.50 a pop, it seems a slightly steep price to pay – but if you’re a salted egg yolk addict, then why the heck not.

Demand has reached a point where the eatery dedicates most weeknights to baking salted egg yolk croissants, with each customer entitled to buying just two croissants at a time. But be quick – they’re only available for takeaway from 5:30pm onwards, excluding Tuesdays and Sundays, and typically sell out within the hour.

[NEW ITEM] A day after Flavour Flings announced that it's halal-certified and introduced the Salted Egg Yolk Croissant (apparently the first in SG), I immediately went to check it out. The croissant ($7.50) had a crisp and flaky shell which makes it hard to cut into. But when you finally get to pierce through, you'll be rewarded with the most sinful and delicious salted egg yolk lava. Made to order, this is one item you have to eat immediately. ➖➖➖ Flavour Flings is an all-day brunch cafe hidden in the Kovan district. It serves a wide range of brunch favourites like pancakes, toast, Eggs Ben, pasta, pastries, coffee and more. ➖➖➖ PRICE 💲: < $20 (lunch promos available) LOCATION 📍: @flavourflings HOURS 🕚: @flavourflings ➖➖➖ #thehalalfoodhunter #sghalal #halalsg #halalcafesg #instafood_sg #sgcafefood #exsgcafes #hungrygowhere #cafehoppingsg #sghalalfood #yoursingapore #singapore #saltedeggyolk #flavourflings

Its custard is smooth and well-balanced – neither too rich nor sweet, and very much similar to the salted yolk centres you find in traditional mooncakes. You can get these at their Penhas Road outlet for $6.50 a piece, from 11am daily.

If you can stave off those salted egg yolk cravings, though, you could wait for these croissants to be introduced at its Mandarin Gallery and Sofitel outlets on February 10 at 1pm.
