1. Salted Egg Yolk Croissant - Flavour Flings Cafe
Meet the first salted egg croissant launched in Singapore!
We tried it when it launched one month ago and we really liked it! The croissant was flaky, just the way we love our croissants but the custard was a little sweeter than what we preferred. But the good news is... The cafe has improved on the salted egg yolk custard and the new and improved version has the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness! It's also thicker now and more flavourful, so soooo good! :P http://instagram.com/p/BBHAjEFG-0r/ If you're still on the fence about whether you should join the food craze? We say give it a shot! #HHWT tip: If you’re heading down to this cosy cafe, don’t forget to refer to this schedule!
Address: 121 Hougang Avenue 1 #01-1348, Singapore 530121 Opening Hours: 11am - 7pm on weekdays, 9am - 7pm on weekends. Closed on Tuesdays. Contact: 6286 0051/ Facebook
2. Salted Egg Softshell Crab Linguine - The Malayan Council
This pasta is one of our favourite east-meets-west fusion dishes! Just look at this HUGE soft-shell crab and the generous serving of crab meat. The soft-shell crab was fried to a perfect crisp and the crab meat was really fresh. Best of all, you don't have to de-shell the crab, yay! Yup, you can tell by now that we're crab people. The salted egg sauce complemented the dish perfectly, definitely a must-try pasta dish in Singapore!
#HHWT tip: As the servings are really generous at The Malayan Council, we highly recommend sharing this dish! Plus, this gives you the perfect excuse to order sides too (ahem, truffle fries). [caption id="attachment_6229" align="aligncenter" width="1000"]
Drinks to cool off![/caption] Don't forget to try the highly raved about ondeh-ondeh cake while you're there too. So light, fluffy and perfect for those of you with a sweet tooth! http://instagram.com/p/BAmaBQKG-2f/ Address: 22 Dunlop Street, Kampong Bugis, Singapore 209350 Opening hours: Mon-Sat: 11:00 am - 11:00 pm Sun: 11:00 am - 10:00 pm Contact: 9002 4414 / [email protected]/ Facebook
 3. Salted Egg Crab - Home of Seafood
Of course, the salted egg crab is one of our favourite crab dishes ever. The creamy salted egg sauce was finger-licking good and oh, the crab meat. It was so fresh and juicy, exactly what crab dreams are made of! P.S. Yes, the pincers were HUUUGE and it took really long for us to finish one pincer.
No crab meal is complete without some fried mantous and Home of Seafood serves really good ones! Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, you'll need these mantous to wipe off every single drop of the salted egg sauce off the plate.

4. Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun - Tang Tea House
Also known as liu sha pau (流沙包), this is definitely one of our favourite dim sum dishes. Think of it like a molten lava cake but with salted egg yolk custard oozing out... Bite into it and get ready for the sweet and savoury custard to explode in your mouth! The person who created this dish is a pure genius. #HHWT tip: This tastes best when it's fresh out of the steamer so don't take too long to take your Instagram-worthy photo :P

5. Salted Yolk Fries - Flavour Flings Cafe
To top off our list, you have to try the salted yolk fries at Flavour Flings Cafe while you're there to try the salted egg yolk croissant! This is quite unlike most salted egg dishes as the sauce is a little spicy and sweet, drizzled with buttered cereal. Don't finish this dish all by yourself unless this is your main course, of course. Worth every single calorie in our opinion!
This cosy cafe is the perfect place to chill out with your family and friends! You know where to go for brunch this weekend :D
