It's been a couple of months since Japanese bakery chain Asanoya Boulangerie opened its first-ever outlet outside of Japan in Singapore but i wasn't too quick to join the queue at the Queen Street outlet. Well i guess that's a good thing since when i recently visited, i found the place quiet and peaceful (also empty) during brunch time on a Saturday.
As for the sweet stuff, Asanoya is known for their lava Cube Loaf ($4.50) which comes in chocolate and green tea. Do not expect it to ooze like a lava cake. I was under the impression that the wait staff would warm it up for me (he said he would) but the center was still cold. Well, the custard was sufficiently milky, with a light sweetness. I did enjoy the slighty chewy bread and i could it on its own.
