This is a major throwback to the days of yesteryear when traditional buns were rampant in Singapore and Malaysia. Nowadays, the ones at supermarkets or mamak shops pass for a quick fix, but none can really match up to the buns of the good ol’ days.

Thankfully, Sing Hon Loong is still surviving after all these years. They used to supply bread to Ya Kun, but have stopped since they cannot cope with the 30+ outlets despite their 24 hour operation. Well, too bad for Ya Kun then. I love that they’re open 24 hours, and you can pick up the fluffy soft buns (kosong, coconut, curry and red bean) or loaves anytime!!! The aroma of freshly baked bread was super tantalising, and we managed to get the red bean buns hot off the oven (they hadn’t even been packaged yet!).

The buns are incredibly soft and fluffy. The red bean filling is generous, velvety smooth and not too sweet. This nearly brought a tear to my eye as the nostalgia hit me hard. I’d smell/squeeze/eat these buns all day err day.

Sadly, the bakery might not be around for long as it’s getting increasingly harder to find workers, and all the current staff we saw were pretty aged (also all quite friendly!).
