May 2023 be filled with bread runs *cross fingers*
I try the cream pan from Gokuku for the first time and am in awe of the strong vanilla bean note in the cream filling. The saying โ€œไธ€ๅˆ†้’ฑไธ€ๅˆ†่ดงโ€ rings true for Gokuku as usual.
My go to chocolate items continue to please, for a sweet non-bread choice the crispy choco is amazing with a milk chocolate and apricot jam coat. The mochi couverture chocolate bun on the other hand is a chewy cocoa bun sweetened with chocolate chips, white chocolate and orange peels - flavour combinations that are faultless.


The last bread run of 2022 - and I am so grateful that Gokuku has an outlet in the east because the buns here havenโ€™t failed.
Today I enjoyed a light fresh matcha and white chocolate bun, a denser chewy brown sugar bun and a butter sugar bun with raisins and walnuts. An after thought: Gokuku is great at making classic pairing work donโ€™t they? Matcha and white chocolate, butter and sugar taken up a notch with raisin and walnuts.

Pro tip 1: if you canโ€™t differentiate the flour variants the bakery use, just spot the description chewy if youโ€™d like a dense chewy bun versus regular fresh fluffy buns, both are equally good and depends on the mood of the day.
Pro tip 2: bring your own bag to save the earth and get a 10cent discount ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Guess what it resembles?

visited the famous Gokuku bakery and tried the ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ธ๐—ธ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ผ ๐—ฃ๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ป ($2.30) this generously-filled bun was coated with a crunchy and sugary layer and stuffed with a smooth and thick pumpkin filling. this was personally my favourite!

I am starting my year with what a close friend calls โ€œa staple in my dietโ€, 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 Bakeryโ€™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.
