Guschlbauer – Delightful Austrian Baked Treats at Waterway Point!
Located in Waterway Point, Guschlbauer is an Austrian bakery that has been around for almost a century. The bakery was first started in 1919, and has since opened franchise outlets in Toronto, Seoul, Hong Kong, and now, Singapore.
Guschlbauer offers a variety of baked goods such as cream puffs, and cheese tarts. Their bestselling and most famous item is the Signature Austrian Cheese Quarter Buns. Currently, the Singapore outlet only has the cheese quarter buns, toasts and Kissling for sale.
The cheese quarter buns come in four different flavours, and each bun retails at $5.80. The salesperson shared that even though the cream cheese is stuffed into the bread in the store, the bread is made in a central kitchen.
The original bun, which is filled with a thick and decadent cream cheese, is undoubtedly the most popular item here. The buns taste better when they’re warm, as expected. It’s a quick step, simply microwave the buns for about 10 seconds on medium-high heat. When it was warm, the bread was softer, and the milky fragrance of the cheese seemed to be more distinct.
The tiramisu bun boasted a very soft bread, and the combination of coffee and cheese was heavenly.
Although the tiramisu flavoured bun was good, the matcha bun fell a little short of expectations. We would have loved for a stronger matcha flavour.
If you’re wondering why these cream cheese buns carry such a hefty price tag, it’s most probably because of the ingredients used. The brand uses only premium Austrian ingredients, even down to the most basic ingredient, flour.
I also got their Kissling ($8.80), which is a croissant-donut hybrid. The Kisslings are flavoured with a garlic-herb butter. I placed the Kissling in the microwave oven for about 30 seconds on medium-high heat. This extra step does pay off. The garlic-herb spread melts into the bread and perfumes the Kissling with a sweet garlicky aroma. The heat helps with the texture of the Kissling too. Buttery, rich and definitely addictive!
If you love buns with a cream cheese stuffing, I’ll recommend that you give the buns here a go! The Kissling is a great purchase as it is quite large, and will make a wonderful breakfast for a family of four!
