I am starting my year with what a close friend calls “a staple in my diet”, that is none other than bread #1. Of course I do try new bread places I stumble upon, for example I only learnt that Gokoku Japanese bakery is at Tampines, just a stone throw away from home.
I scored some freshly baked scones at 2pm on a Saturday but deduced I still preferred Duke Bakery’s version for the ones here were less flavourful and more floury.
The bread on the other hand was good. With a mix of different grain flour (i.e, rice and more) the bread here is slightly chewy and soft, which connected me to think that no wonder there was a snaking queue at the cashier as such a texture generally appeals to Chinese palates.
