Not a fan
I'm not really a fan of this sort of pastries, and therefore my review may only be catered to my personal tastes. I do feel like Crystal Jade should perhaps let go of the Chinese aspect and branch out further in the realm of pastries though, I mean, Dutch, English, French - there's such a variety to select from! Why constrain yourself to just one cuisine?
I have to say, these pastries do meet the criteria they are usually judged by - the egg tarts have flaky crusts and soft insides, while the bo lo buns have a hint of crisp, which I like.
All in all, this place is okay if you like Chinese pastries, I suppose. The prices are similar to other chains - BreadTalk, Four Leaves, and therefore pretty affordable.
Must-try Bo Lo bun
Crystal jade my bread is a bakery that sells Cantonese style pastries and buns. I love their bo lo buns! There are many choices of fillings for the bo lo buns. Personally, I like the original one and the kaya one.
The top part of the bun is sweet and flakey. It is my favorite part of the bun. Because I love kaya, I really enjoy the bo lo bun with kaya filling.
Other than bo lo buns, Crystal jade my bread sells pastries like Wife biscuits, tau sar piah, etc which are pretty decent. I am not a fan of these sort of pastries so I am not a good judge for this.
Discounts after 8.30pm makes all the patries value for money!
This place is a classic bakery - I love all their cakes and pastries and breads.
One of the things that really make me love this place is the fact that after 8.30pm they have discounts on all breads. Which can only mean delicious bread for breakfast.
One of my favourite bakery treats from Crystal Jade would be the egg cupcakes which are delectably soft and fluffy, and melt in your mouth. The curry bun is also a family favourite with its fully stuffed curry goodness. The Char Siew Bao and Lao Po Bing is also some other pastries which we often buy.
The cakes are also reasonable with the discount - not to mention the fact that it's worth more than your money's worth. Other desserts that are worth the try would be the mango pudding and the tiramisu. Oh, the mango pudding brings back memories of when my mother would surprise me with the mango pudding - I can even taste it in my mouth. I love this place.
I've had a really strong impression of Crystal Jade for a long time, as my family frequents the restaurant during the weekends. The food is of high quality and reasonably priced, and I expected Crystal Jade My Bread to be of the same standards.
I was not disappointed. The breads are delicious, especially the Buo Luo Bao (or Pineapple Bun in English). It was probably the best Buo Luo Bao I've ever found in Singapore. The crust is perfectly crispy, and the inside is very fluffy and soft. The Buo Luo Bao itself warrants a visit to the bakery.
The prices are also very reasonable, similar to BreadTalk prices, so about $1+ for one bread. If you're tired of the usual BreadTalk, Four Leaves or Swee Heng, drop by Crystal Jade My Bread. You won't be disappointed.
Heres a confession, Crystal Jade:My Bread is my favourite pitstop before outfield. The reason is that if kept properly (Sealed in a ziploc bag and stored in cool temperatures), bread can often last through the few days of outfield. Hence, I went down a few weeks ago to make my selections for my last outfield.
I bought a few lao po bing (Wife's biscuits), the round biscuit with a well baked crust and sweet paste in its interior, char siew pies, chicken floss bread and even a long cream bread. The cake (Chocolate flavoured) was also in my shopping list. This provided an appetising alternative to my combat rations the next few days.
The moral of this mini story was not that Crystal Jade's Bread is only suitable for outfields. It is to illustrate that the brand of bread is of the medium range strata. Whilst Crystal Jade is a well known brand in Singapore, it specialises over a range of products such that the resources input on a specific product (i.e. bread) is enough for it to be of decent but lacks the additional zest a well made product. As such, for tasty fare, I would rather go for fresh varieties of bread made by a baker who puts his/her love in making bread whereas for convenience and ease of accessibility to something decent, I would visit a place like Crystal Jade's bakeries.
However, the Hong Kong style bread made by the bakeries is something you should sample. The Wife's Biscuit especially is decent and I liked the pork floss buns! May not be among the very best but worth a visit!
unique hongkong style bread
I know I've always been a great fan of crystal jade's la mian and xiao long bao and when I chanced upon their bakery, I decided to give their bread a go. They sell the breads and pastries which are more of a hongkong style featuring different polo buns and steamed sponge egg cakes, a little different from breadtalk and the likes.
What i like about their selection is that they have rather unique flavors which you cannot find in the other bakeries which piqued my curisoity. I've tried their polo bun and to be honest, it wasn't mind blowingly good. I've also tried their fried chicken which they placed in their heaters. They too, were meh.
All in all, i feel it's just any other bakery cept for the more unique flavors and hong kong twist. Do rememebr to hit their stores near closing time, thats when the bread would be on discount. (heh heh)
