The first time I tasted this sweet pastry with crispy apple filling, it was like tasting a slice of heaven. It had just the right mix of everything, the sweet taste that was not too overwhelming, the soft crunchy apples that were not too sweet. Everything. Little did I know that that was my introduction to Ritz Apple Strudel.

Years ago, when the franchise first opened it was a hit in Singapore where people literally ordered to get their hands on the apple strudels. Today, it is much tamer and much less of a hype than what it used to be. Its outlets are still open nonetheless, although there may not be that many people around during its off-peak periods. Besides apple strudel, the cafe also has other food items like the regular western food menu or light pastries. For a tea-time snack of a timely sweet lunch, this would be the ideal place to go to for its apple strudel.

However, it is much more of a dessert than a main course as having too much of it may tend to make one feel a little sick. A nice alternative to the regular cakes, this strudel is definitely still deserving of my two-thumbs up.

My mother always used to get Ritz Apple Strudel as a thank you gift from one of her students and I have always loved those times as well! This apple strudel may come in a large log or you may purchase it in smaller quantities. The one we received was always in a full log of crispy and creamy custard goodness.

The apple strudel is best eaten chilled as it hardens the custard a little to prevent it from flowing everywhere and becoming very messy. Also, a cold dessert also increases the enjoyment value especially in Singapore with such weather. The dessert by itself is already very delicate with its thin pastry layers, so eating it will definitely get messy without the chilling process!

The strudel has just the right amount of sweetness and the texture of the custard is smooth and creamy. The baked apple is sweeter than the custard and tastes soft and delicious. I am always able to finish a large chunk on my own because the taste is not strong and it is just such a delightful dessert!

The only downside is that it is not easy to find the outlets of Ritz as you would not find them in malls, but rather in the neighbourhoods.

This has got to be THE BEST apple strudel I've ever eaten. With it's crispy layers of golden pastry and creamy custard filled with apple chunks - with just the right amount of sweetness too!

They come in many other yummy flavours as well, such as mango and durian which the older generation love to bits. That's why Ritz makes good take-home snacks and visiting gifts; I've never seen anyone refuse such a tasty treat no matter how picky an eater!

However, eating the strudel will get rather messy as it flakes everywhere. This makes it difficult to cut into portions on your own as well, so you might want to request for the service staff to do it for you when you buy it. I suppose you could do it on your own with a serrated knife (bread knife) though.

The custard will also become less viscous over time and make it runny, so do remember to keep it chilled! That's when it tastes best as well :)

I just can't get enough of the strawberry strudel! Every time I buy from them, the strudel is perfect and never defect. The pastry has delicious layers of crispiness and sweetness, and the tartness of the strawberries and buttery smoothnes of the custard complement the crispy pastry perfectly. It is just so hard to refuse one, and I always buy 2 mini strudels at one time.

The apple strudel is also not bad, but definitely incomparable to the strawberry strudel. However, I would advise you to give the durian strudel a miss, as it tasted foul to me.

I think their strudels are reasonably priced, and even if they were to increase the prices, I would gladly pay more for some awesome tasting strawberry strudel.

I have been eating Ritz Apple Strudel for as long as I can remember! I really do love the strawberry strudel in particular, and I feel that the strudels really do live up to the slogan, "love at first bite." The crust of the strudel has a layer of melted crystallized sugar which is simply delightful to bite into! Beneath that, there is a layer of fresh strawberried lathered with a layer of rich and smooth cream. It is really tantalizing to the taste buds and I think it is the best strawberry strudel in town! The prices are reasonable for the quality and taste of the strudel and I would really recommend this to anybody looking for a delightful tea break and for good strudels. I really do love it and would obviously go back for more!

The first time one of my friends bought from Ritz Apple Strudel, I thought they only sold apple strudels until I came across one of their stores. They have got more than apples to offer; mango, blueberry and durian, just to name a few.

Prices go from S$12.50 for half a loaf up to S$23.50 for a full loaf. While there are more unique flavours such as durian and chocolate cost slightly more than the others. Fret not if you are looking for a smaller portion for yourself, there is a mini version to this strudel with prices starting from S$4.50 each.

If you are into baking, search up recipes for strudels to bake and you will realize that the end-product tastes similar to those at Ritz. Easy to make, just time consuming. The strudels by Ritz Apple Strudel are good if you do not have the time to bake yourself at home.

At Ritz Apple Strudel, they sell more than just strudels. You can expect to find apple crumble, tiramisu and brownies. They do take orders for parties or events. Just enquire at the counter or their website. It is guaranteed with no trans-fat or additional preservatives, sounds good enough to convince myself to go back for more.

If you’re craving for apple strudel, go to Ritz Apple Strudel and don’t bother with anywhere else. Ritz’s strudels are truly delightful! There are 5 outlets in Singapore: Thomson, Bukit Timah, East Coast, Bugis Junction and North Bridge Road.

I like the one at North Bridge road the most. The shop is very small and there’s enough room for only two tables but there are more tables at the space outside and I enjoyed sitting out in the open air in the evening, enjoying the breeze while watching people and cars go by and eating the very tasty strudel.
There is not just apple strudel but also peach, strawberry, blueberry, durian and mango ones! The strawberry one was also very nice. Somehow the best combinations of fruit and the custard are the apple and strawberry ones. To me, at least.

They don’t only sell strudels but they also have éclairs, cream puffs (vanilla/ chocolate), mini custards and pillow puff.

The strudels come in different sizes too. They are really good. It’s thick and crispy with a few layers of custard and fruit in between. The layers are coated and it looks glossy. The fruit is aplenty in the custard which isn’t overly sweet. The crispy strudel with the cold, fresh and custard is just absolutely delectable.

apple strudel trademark

When someone mentions about apple strudel, the first place that comes into my mind would be Ritz. It has created a strong apple strudel following with its good and delicious apple strudels.

The strudel pastry is crispy and light and in between lies layers of caramelized apples and whipped cream. I usually prefer to eat the strudels at home to prevent a big mess from happening. These strudels break easily and if you are not careful, the small bits can get all over your clothes and in between your teeth. Not a nice sight to be caught with in public. At home, you can also cut the strudel with a sharper knife to cut it more precisely. If you do not cut properly, the whole strudel will topple and you will find yourself eating the strudel separately from the apples and cream. The best is to have them all together in a single bite. The taste resulting from the combination from all these ingredients together is a nice and refreshing taste.

Tip: The strudel is best eaten cold because of the cream in it. The cold feeling of the strudel will also make it more refreshing as opposed to leaving it in room temperature. The strudels are also best eaten soon once bought if not the pastry will harden if left for too long!

great for a dessert or afternoon snack

Although there is a wide range of different flavoured strudels sold at Ritz Apple Strudel, I still think that the best tasting one will be the apple strudel. The crust of the strudel is crunchy and the apple filling is soft. However, the height of the strudel is rather thick, and it is difficult to cut straight through it and I prefer splitting it into half before savoring each portion. The half loaf serves about four people, as the strudel can be too sweet to eat in excessive amounts. Each small slice makes a good dessert or a light afternoon snack.

Ritz Apple Strudel also sells other desserts, like cakes and beverages at its fixed outlets. There are times when a temporary stall is set up in the heartlands, which is where I usually get my strudel fix. The quality of the strudels is as good and delicious. Best part, there is often no queue; although they have limited stock at these various makeshift outlets and sometimes I have to make do with the mango strudel instead.

Apple goodness

Eating ritz apple strudel on a weekend afternoon, coupled with earl grey tea makes me warm and fuzzy on the inside. Ritz apple strudel consists of layers of goodness, with a glazed, golden top crust, followed by smooth and sweet cream and apple bits. I love the golden colour of the strudel- baked perfectly. Ritz has perfected the recipe for apple strudel. I cant think of a better apple strudel than theirs! Best of all, their prices are reasonable, and their classic apple strudel's taste has always been this good since I was young. My perfect pastry fix, I really love this!
