Da Paolo Gastronomia's Salted Egg Croissant - My Personal Favourite So Far

The salted egg croissant war has been going on for some time now, even my doctor took notice of it and proclaimed Da Paolo Gastronomia's Salted Egg Croissant to be the best in Singapore, although the winner goes to Antoinette's Salted Yolk Lava Croissant in the The Straits Times article.  

I happened to be in Paragon so I thought I would drop by to taste Da Paolo Gastronomia's Salted Egg Croissant.





As compared to Antoinnette's Salted Yolk Lava Croissant where the amount of filling is pathetic and tastes kind of funny, Gastonomia Da Paolo's Salted Egg Croissant is loaded with the sweet-salty goodness to the very ends of the croissant. The filling still does not have the flowy consistency of lava, but the sweetness and saltiness is well-balanced and the salted egg yolk flavor is very intense. I would have liked the croissant itself to be a little bit more buttery (Antoinette's croissant is perfect) , but the flaky exterior and finger-licking-good salted egg filling has won my heart over completely. 

Besides Salted Egg Croissant, this Italian deli chain offers many other delish-looking desserts. alongside mouthwatering pastas and pizzas. There is also a small retail section where you can get festive treats. This place reminds me of Boturra in Suntec City. 

I still have 4 more places to try out before I can determine the best salted egg croissant, but
