Oink Noona: Hattendo, Tanjong Pagar Centre

"Some might say that sunshine follows thunder, go and tell it to the man who cannot shine."

Anyeong! It's finally one day to the Penang foodie trip. Noona is definitely gonna taking it easy tomorrow because she ain't gonna work herself so much before a weekend trip. Too bad there is a training that she must attend on Monday. Otherwise, she will take extra day off to rest and relax from all those hard work. 

Sometimes when you have spent too many weekends at one country, the urge to travel somewhere is pretty high but when it's time to save, we just have to enjoy what we have. And that's exactly what Noona did last Saturday, enjoying her time at Tanjong Pagar area in Singapore. 

Oink Noona: Hattendo Cafe, Tanjong Pagar Centre

There are new things to explore at Tanjong Pagar area like the recently opened (okay, maybe few months ago) Tanjong Pagar Centre for one. There are so many cafes and restaurants to check out inside this mall and this time, we wanted to try out the Japanese cream bun sold at Hattendo Cafe.

There are five flavours of cream buns sold by Hattendo Cafe and it seems that the chocolate cream bun is the most popular taste among them all because we saw no more chocolate cream bun inside the display fridge. Noona's friend was kinda disappointed but life must goes on despite the lack of chocolate love. Hahaha.

Other than cream buns, Hattendo Cafe also offered some snacks like fries and coffee/tea. Surprisingly the cafe also has sandwiches, rosti and salad in a jar. Smart move since they have to cater for office people during weekdays.

Noona wanted to try out the matcha melon bun while her cafehopping buddy went for the custard cream bun. The melon bun costs SGD 3 while the normal cream bun costs SGD 2.50. The buns look bigger when they are displayed in the fridge but they look smaller after taken out individually. Eye-trick?

You have to refrigerate the buns if you are not eating them straight away. The staff informed us that it will last two hours outside fridge.

But since we would definitely spend more than two hours outside home after this visit, we decided to eat the cream buns right on the spot at Hattendo Cafe. Let Noona opens her Matcha Melon Bun for a while. Okay, done~

There is no way to differentiate each cream buns without actually looking at the label and digging in. Both kinda looks like Japanese melon bun from outside but they are filled with cream filling. Taste wise, pretty light and not that milky. Noona's friend super love milky stuff so she prefers something creamier/ milkier (dunno how to explain) for the filling. She did give example though. She said something like Chateraise's cream puff.
