Local bakery chain Swee Heng is hard to miss when it has over 20 outlets islandwide.
We always have a soft spot for Swee Heng’s Pandan Kaya Bun, but their latest specialty store might give our breakfast staple a run for its money.
Nestled in the basement of Northpoint City in Yishun, Crolo by Swee Heng offers a wide variety of croissants and croffles — a genius mashup between croissants and waffles, if you’re unfamiliar.
Crolo launched in December 2020, and although there wasn’t an announcement by the brand, it looks like the store is officially MUIS halal-certified as it is listed on MUIS website.
Like other Swee Heng stores, however, Crolo is a takeaway-only bakery.
Besides the standard plain croissants and croffles going from S$1.10, check out their more unique options like the Milo Dinosaur croissant going from S$1.90 to S$2.80.
It is filled with Milo powder and ganache inside, and drizzled with more chocolate ganache on the outside.
Other sweet croissant flavours available include Kit Kat Croissant (S$), Chocolate Custard Croissant (S$1.90), and Red Velvet Cream Cheese Croissant (S$2.60) that has a substantial slice of red velvet cheesecake stuffed into the croissant!
Don’t have a sweet tooth? Crolo also offers savoury croissants that would be perfect for tea break.
If Egg Mayo Croissant (S$2.60) or Tuna Croissant (S$2.60) is too basic for you, try the newfangled variety like the Otah Croissant (S$2.60) and Yakitori Croissant (S$2.80) that really comes with chicken on skewers.
Crolo also sells croffles in even more flavours and toppings, with average prices around the S$2 – S$3 range.
Similar to the croissants, the croffles here are available in both sweet and savoury versions.
Take your pick from the Japan-inspired Snow Crab Mentaiko Croffle (S$2.80) to fruity creations like the Peach Croffle (S$2.80) and Mango Croffle (S$2.80).
In-store toasting available
Whilst the croissants and croffles are freshly baked daily, Crolo also offers in-store toasting if you prefer to have the baked goods ready to be eaten warm and crispy.
If you’re keeping them for later, Crollo recommends putting them in the chiller to ensure they stay as fresh as possible.
When you’re ready to eat them, simply reheat the items with savoury fillings in the oven or toaster. For those with sweet fillings, they can be consumed chilled.
