The liu sha craze has been in Singapore for some time now, from croissants to tarts, burgers to bolo baos, salted egg yolk has been creeping into various stores and many foods…
This golden gooey substance lifts up the taste of many dishes and satisfies many more as it flows into our bellies, yet all that flows may not be gold, I’ve had some nasty experiences with dishes that simply doesnt go with this golden goodness – especially when executed wrongly.
This list would continue to grow as I update it.
1. Salted Egg Yolk Molten Chocolate Lava Cake
Chocolate is a substance that promotes euphoria in us, mix that with some molten golden liu sha and what would you get? Joy and richness in a dish.

4. Salted Egg Yolk Cream Puff
Not all that flows is gold. This is one example of what not to eat with liu sha! Cold and solid salted egg yolk is simply not viscous nor satisfying. Perhaps another place can execute a better concept of this dish.
5. Salted Egg Yolk Tart
This unassuming little tart packs lots of sweetness within! Crunchy exterior filled with a soft interior soaked in salted egg yolk, layered with pieces of mango and finished with 3 cubes of crunchy peanut cubes. This savoury salted dish is simply irresistible! Tarts by themselves are more than enough to satisfy the tongue, and I must say the attempt by Tart Blanc to throw in some liu sha is indeed a risky move for a normal sweet treat, but their efforts were not in vain for it seems like this dish manages to harmonise and balance out the two factors nicely.
Do check out the other pretty tarts and desserts they serve there too!

6. Salted Egg Yolk Tang Yuan
This sweet delight is really pretty impressive, able to balance the sweetness of the typical tang yuan and also at the same time infuse the taste of the salted egg yolk nicely but not too overwhelmingly. A good attempt by Hee Kee!

7. Salted Egg Yolk Croissant
Hailed as having one of the best salted egg yolk croissants in Singapore right now, Antoinette certainly doesn’t disappoint, delivering a croissant that has a crisp and light surface while bursting with rich and strong salted egg yolk within. It certainly is very worth trying out this delicacy!
Only one word can be said when I entered Antoinette – grand. With a strong European setting with large posh sofas and seats, one can expect to indulge in royalty. A perfect place for dates and afternoon teas! Do check out their other special items in their menu!
