Some restaurants and cafes have gone a step further, by combining BOTH Green Tea and Salted Egg Yolk!
Emmmmmm…… Tasty? Or Gross? Let’s have a look.

Steamed Pandan Bun with Green Tea Custard
I have always been a fan of Liu Sha Bao aka Golden Custard Buns, even before its popularity spread in Singapore.
Now, this Crystal Jade Prestige fluffy steamed pandan buns contained MATCHA custard, which would ooze like molten lava. When I took a bite…
”Is there SALTED EGG Yolk?”
Yes, there were traces. Not too much, but enough to elevate the taste. Awesome.

Matcha Salted Egg Lava Toast
Ah-huh, you may have seen this video from Insider making their rounds on Insider, and this humble cake café at Jalan Bukit Merah from Singapore has propelled to instant fame.
For $14.80, you get a choice of toast (charcoal, brioche or matcha), fillings (salted egg, Nutella or matcha) and a non-optional topup of chocolate, vanilla or matcha ice cream.
A toast with crispy layer and oozing centre has driven some instagrammers on a frenzy.
To be honest, the bread’s texture wasn’t fantastic, kind of doughy and tough to cut across. But the winning element was the filling of matcha sauce with an additional layer of saltiness.

Yes, it sounds totally weird, but it makes them stand out from the rest.
The Matcha Salted Egg Croissant ($4.90) came petite-sized, and I would wish for the crust to be fluffier.
However, the combination actually worked.
While salted egg still took main priority and pretty much overpowered everything else in terms of taste, there was subtle notes of green tea which gave an added dimension.

Couldn’t resist ordering this. Matcha Salted Egg Cake ($8.50).
This contains Kyoto Matcha infused cake sponge, layered with salted egg yolk custard, covered with Matcha frosting and topped with milk custard crumbs.
Cake might look dry, but was surprisingly moist yet dense enough. (I reckon this is from a supplier, and it looks like a Crème Maison.)
