Singapore has a lot of bakeries here and there. In MRT stations, hawkers, malls, villages, etc. That’s why you will never go hungry while strolling around the country. Singapore has a variety of bakeries, ranging from their local breads, to French, and also to Japanese.
Speaking of Japanese bakery, Asanoya Bakery is one of its kind in Singapore. It is originally located in Japan and has its first overseas branch here in Singapore. The first branch is located at 15 Queen Street #01-03, (S)188537 and the second is at 4 Tampines Central 5, Tampines Mall, #01-21, Singapore 529510 (inside Isetan). Upon hearing that they will also open their third branch at Paragon, I, together with my boyfriend/food/travel buddy (shoutout to Aljene! :D), decided to visit and try their gourmet breads and pastries.

Really a food buddy, right?
Asanoya offers traditional French pastries like quiche, brioche, and croissants. It also offers European style breads infused with Japanese style and taste.
The crew member who served us! Hello there!
A promo for their opening at Paragon!
During their opening which was last October 6, 2016, a promo was being offered to customers.
I, being a bread/pastry addict, didn’t let the promo pass (more breads, more happiness!). Of course being a first timer, we decided to try their popular breads. Some of those are the Maple Walnut (it’s so delicious that we weren’t able to take a photo of it!), Matcha Salted Egg Croissant, Ham and Cream Cheese Bun, and Cheese Tart.
Matcha Salted Egg Croissant $4.90
The taste of both matcha and salted egg are just balanced, nothing overpowers the other. The combination is just so flavorful and really complements each other. The croissant itself is tasty and flaky. The buttery taste of the croissant goes well with the matcha and salted egg flavor. It has also a tip and instructions pasted on the packaging on how to warm the croissant since it is best eaten when warm.
Cheese Tart $3.00
The cheese tart’s base is a cookie-like texture. The cheese filling itself is soft in texture and cheesy and creamy in taste. Plus, it is caramelized on top, adding an extra caramel flavor to the cheese tart.
Ham and Cheese Donut $2.80
This crusty donut is so fluffy and flavorful. Once you bite into it, you will see the generous amount of ham and cream cheese. Wait, what?! Yes, it’s cream cheese! This is the first time I got to taste a bread with ham, and cream cheese. And I can say that it really goes well.
Overall, I absolutely recommend all of the breads I have tried. Also, the location is easily accessible since the MRT station and bus stops are just around the area. The prices are also reasonable. The crew are also friendly and attentive, especially when there were lots of customers and the queue was long.
There are still a lot of breads I have yet to try that’s why I will come back for sure!
