Good Apple Strudel
Overall Score 
 
4.0
Ritz Apple Strudel is up there with some of my favourite desserts. Crispy pastry filled with sweet cream and slightly tangy apple bits to offset the sweetness - the perfect dessert to end of the night. My favourite part is the carmelised crust of the pastry. If it wasn’t for the caramelised crust, the apple strudel probably won’t be half as nice! After years of eating Ritz Apple Strudel, one hack I discovered would be to buy the mini strudel instead of the full sized one because the caramelised crust to strudel ratio is greater.

I’ve tried their durian strudel before too. It’s not bad but it just tastes like a crispy durian puff on steroids. The apple strudel still remains my favourite out of all the different flavours. Indeed, the original is always the best.

Although the initial hype when Ritz Apple Strudel first set up shop in Singapore has died down, there still remains a constant demand for these pastries. With so many outlets peppering our sunny island of Singapore, it has become really easy to grab one on the go!

I love going to Ritz to enjoy my 'high tea' chit-chat session with friends. Needless to say, their signature apple strudel just tastes heavenly (so much so that sometimes I feel like stealing their recipe and bake it at home). I like their mango strudel too! Honestly all their strudels are way beyond words, be it its a peach, apple, mango, durian, strawberry or even blueberry strudel, I love them all! I have not taste any strudels as delicious as what Ritz is offering so far, but the price of $21.90 for a full loaf apple strudel is a little too expensive, isn't it? Alright, I understand that they actually prepare their strudels daily, but I still find it hard to accept the price for its freshness. Hit the Like button if you agree with me that the strudels are a little overpriced, thanks!

I've been eating Ritz Apple Strudel for years now, my dad used to buy it home as a special treat, and now I go there and buy it back for my parents sometimes to surprise them, it is my mum's favorite desert.

I've tried two flavors so far. The classic apple strudel is really just delicious; it is layers of puff pastry, sandwiched with soft apples bathed in pastry cream and custard. The very top of the puff pastry in the strudel is glazed with sugar or syrup and so it adds that crunchy texture in contrast to the soft cream. The apples are not too soft, still with some bite to them, and the dessert is not overly filled with cream such that it sickens you. If you do not like custard though, you may not like this very much. It is best eaten on the first day (don't feel guilty, just finish it!), you can keep it in the fridge for a few days but even overnight you can taste the difference as the puff pastry begins to absorb the moisture from the cream and become slightly soft rather than crunchy.

The other flavor that I tried is the mango strudel. It is also really good and a good change if you have only been eating the apple strudel. The mango is fresh and juicy and still goes well with the custard and pastry. Somehow I also felt that the mango strudel is less sweet than the apple strudel, which I prefer. My mum's favorite is still the apple strudel though so I still buy that!

I usually buy it home to share with my family, but there the shop has quite a big sitting area. When I go on a weekday afternoon, the place is usually empty and quiet so it seems like a good place to have a meeting, especially when you want to talk!

In the past few years I think they have raised the price and it is a tad expensive for my liking. Having said that, I have trawled all over to find a recipe to make this kind of strudel (there is another kind of apple strudel which is more like a pie) and have not found it! It is still therefore a unique desert and a great treat!

Best apple strudel around!

I was introduced to Ritz Apple Strudel only last year, and I absolutely fell in love with their strudels within the first bite. The combination of cold fruits, custard, and sweet pastry is heavenly. I have tried both their apple strudel and mango strudel, with the apple strudel winning by just a slight margin in my opinion. It is best to eat when fresh, when the sugar coated pastry is still crispy, to be able to fully appreciate just how delicious a simple strudel can be. Even putting it in the refrigerator "for later" will cause it to lose some of that crispiness. A normal size strudel may look deceivingly small, but it is actually very filling (and a complete mess!), so unless you have a huge appetite, take caution when deciding which size to get!

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!

great for a dessert or afternoon snack
Overall Score

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 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!

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.

Craving for a dessert but not fancying something that is too sweet? Or you have this urge to munch on something light so as to satisfy your taste buds? Then I think Ritz is the place for you! It has many types of strudel and yet they are light snacks, hence you can order a few to share with your group of friends.

The nearest Ritz Apple Strudel outlet to where I stay is at Upper Thomson. It is one bus stop away from Thomson Plaza. The cafe is quite quiet and serene. When one step into Ritz, he/she will definitely feel at ease and in a dilemma too, which strudel to eat? They not only have apple strudels, they also have mango strudels and durian strudels etc. I tried these three and loved them all! The pastry was crunchy not too thick, fruits were fresh and were given in a substantial quantity, sandwiched in between the pastries. One mini strudel is around $4.20, and is best to be shared amongst 2 or 3 people in my opinion! It is definitely scrumptious and makes you want to share more of this goodness with your friends and family!

However, as the strudels might make it seem dry after awhile, I suggest that you get a drink or two from Ritz as well! They have smoothies, hot and cold beverages and ice cream as well. I would love to go again for the delightful strudels when I go to Thomson the next time round!
