As the saying goes, the early bird catches the worm, and that certainly is the case at this Serangoon Garden Market stall. Set your alarm early, for these guys start at 6:30am and often sell out before noon, but trust us that it'll be worth the effort. After all, as Tastemaker Peter Wong says, nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread early in the morning. It's simple, honest-to-goodness baking, and that's the charm here. Expect an assortment of old school handmade bread buns filled with familiar fillings including otah, luncheon meat and kaya. They also turn out a really well-made fluffy banana cake. However, take Tastemaker Vanessa Kou's advice and try their Cream Puff ($0.80) which was so good with delicately smooth cream that her mum gobbled up two. The bonus? Everything here averages at $1, so buy a large box!
Avg Price: $5 per person
