Lepark‘s Salted Egg Yolk Sauce On Soft Shell Crab Mantou
Situated on the rooftop of People’s Park Complex, Lepark offers not only a splendid selection of tapas but a lovely view of Singapore City as well. Their salted egg yolk dish comes in the form of soft shell crab mantou sliders, with a portion size allowing its taste to linger but not overwhelm.

Flavour Flings‘ Salted Egg Yolk Croissant
Currently a frontrunner in the liu sha race, croissants filled with salted egg yolk sauce have been taking up a lot of Instagram space. And when Flavour Flings decided to put it on their menu, we don’t think they expected it to be a sold out sensation. It did anyway, sometimes even selling out only a half hour after they’ve opened their doors for the day. But then again if you think about it, who can resist a glorious salted egg sauce oozing out of its crispy croissant counterpart?

Although primarily known for their Asian-inspired rice bowls, the spotlight has shifted temporarily towards the restaurant’s liu sha doughnuts. Right off their dessert menu, this gooey treat is made up of your regular sugared doughnut, filled with an abundance of salted egg yolk goodness. And for any liu sha fan out there, there’s no greater joy than seeing the beautiful sauce ooze out as you split the doughnut apart.
