Mr Baguette – Sumptuous Exploding Lava Baguette Balls from $1.80
Having been around for almost 5 years, Mr Baguette has amassed a huge following with hoards of people pre-ordering their baguette buns. They often sell out nearing the end of the day so contact the owner, Kent, beforehand to avoid disappointment! Their full list of products is available on their Facebook page at mrbaguette.singapore.
Although the minimum order is 4, we couldn’t resist getting more!
The Baguette Tart (Double Volume) ($2) has a French Egg filling and is their most popular item. Imagine an egg tart with its buttery crust replaced by a warm, freshly baked baguette. The buttery and light egg pudding is made from milk, eggs, sugar and whipping cream. It is slightly lighter in taste as compared to normal egg tarts.
We also tried the Baguette Lava ($1.80) which is their classic chocolate flavour, and one of their best sellers. Perfect for chocoholics, grainy chocolate oozes out after you take a bite into the crispy baguette. Kent definitely does not skimp on the filling here. It will get messy, so get your plates ready. The buttery chocolate ‘crust’ at the top is the best part. The slightly salty ‘lava’ helps to ensure that the baguette ball does not get overwhelmingly sweet.
The Apple Lava ($1.80) has Apple and Cinnamon inside. I tasted some chopped walnuts in the flowy lava, but it was quickly overpowered by the creamy insides. The ‘lava’ in this bun is more viscous as compared to the one in the Chocolate Baguette Lava. The apple filling is rather generous (there’s more inside apart from that apple cube on top!) and it is a sweet treat best saved for dessert or tea.
Azuki Lava ($1.80) sees the classic Japan red bean and green tea combination. The texture is not as runny, despite us heating it up for the same amount of time, at the same temperature. Despite sounding like a milder flavour, the red beans made the baguette a tad too sweet for my liking.
Moving on to the savoury flavours, the Cheese Lava ($1.80) is crafted from 4 different types of cheese. It has a slight sweetness but did not have the strong cheesy taste that we expected. It would be better if the taste came through more strongly. Although it sounds filling and heavy, it is perfect as a light snack.
If you’re looking for a quick grab-and-go meal, Mr Baguette’s Bowl Pasta Products are a good option. Their Carbonara Bowl ($2) has carbonara sauce, cheese, chicken ham and macaroni within the baguette. The substantial amount of ingredients means that it is rather filling. The topping has a smooth texture and is not too salty. Don’t worry about making a mess because the creamy filling is thick and will not spill when you bite into it.
Mr Baguette has an interesting take on baguettes and is probably the only shop in Singapore selling this innovative snack. Being a chocolate lover, my favourite is the Chocolate Baguette Lava with the Egg Tart coming in a close second.
If you’re bringing the baguettes home for your family and friends, remember to heat it up with a toaster, oven or air-fryer. Kent recommends heating it up at 180 degrees celcius for 1 minute. If possible, eat it on the spot as having a freshly baked baguette means it is softer and easier to bite into, making it less of a messy ordeal.
