While the salted egg yolk craze has long started in our neighbouring country Singapore, it only truly kicked in for us very recently when the visually sinful molten 'ham dan' croissant from SS2's Le Bread Days shot to viral fame
After local food blogger, Rebecca Saw's review was published, many flocked to the quaint café for a taste of the croissants. If you don't mind long queues and lengthy wait times (at least for now), you can visit the café at the address below:
