My love for bread knows no boundaries (I think)

It’s been awhile since I’ve stepped foot into Jewel and today we find this HK 茶餐厅 with freshly baked bolo buns greeting you at its entrance. Clearly a franchise from Hong Kong, the buns are very good.
Because we came just to grab a quick bite with milk tea I am definitely mentally bookmarking this place the next time we have space for a heavier tea/ breakfast at Jewel.

Excellent croissants & Gylph Supply Co coffee - enough said!
This place is every instagrammer’s dream ambience too :)

I am starting my year with what a close friend calls “a staple in my diet”, that is none other than bread #2. Today I can finally dine at Bread & Hearth, because it was just Dad & I and he usually gives in to my suggestions when it’s just the 2 of us; his Asian preferences weren’t as strong 😬 the stars aligned.
I selected these for the first meal of the day, I like to start my day sweet and the strawberry cheese danish was a great choice with sweet cream cheese, a fresh strawberry that’s been baked and layers flaky good Danish pastry sheets *dreamy*.
To balance with a savoury item, I had the salted peanut butter crunch; you cannot complaint about the artisan bread here they make me glad to be living in the East.

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.

On my mission to visit the 18 places on Straits Times’ what’s baking in the east, we came in on a late weekday afternoon and had no chance to try the sold out exquisite cakes here.
I settled for the pastries and had a cookie crumble like blondie with a large mochi center and crunchy whole macadamia nuts. I also had the almond croissant with a center of heavy nut butter unlike other almond croissants you’d be familiar with. We then took home a baguette which I had trouble reheating a few days after because it became really hard.
I’ll return to try the acclaimed cakes, and Tigerlily is a tea/ brunch spot I’d consider since we live in the East; if we manage to get seats.

East Village has become a hub sprawling with home-based bakers turn bakery-store owners. Such a pleasant surprise for an Eastie like me, since I’ve semi retired from baking for myself because of a lack of time.
The cinnamon bun was good, the size of the bun helped in ensuring the bread was soft and moist enough inside. Nothing to fault about the classic combination between cinnamon sugar and cream cheese.
I’ll be willing to try their boms on my next visit

Pleasantly surprised to find MuYoo resurfacing in the SG F&B scene at Changi City Point. It’s is a nice alternative to have chewier and slightly QQ bread from this Asian brand, compared my regular daily staple of bread

Widely smiled when my colleague trotted around to pass me this.
While the patisserie is better know for their tarts, the pain au chocolate here was good with lamination in place.

Ps: this was from the Paya Lebar outlet

Getting used to this cycle of treat yourself takeouts on PH/ the weekends with the nation’s back and forth drift into and out of Phase 2 Heightened Alert.

Choosing to be grateful for excellent bakeries like Bakery Brera that churn amazing bakes 6 days a week to feed souls like mine; and they do good in the process too (check out ST article: Help pours in for siblings with rare disorder (11 Jul 21).

While I savoured the layers the variety of croissants and cruffins; forked into the decadent scone and basque cheesecake (with a hint of alcohol) - they definitely felt like pleasures of life.

We always forget to preorder (only available on weekdays) and end up with whatever leftover we can snag even upon arriving within the first 15 min of opening hour.

We take whatever we can get from one of the best bakery in Singapore.

This old school bakery at Tanglin Halt was something I’d traveled from the East for- a paltry effort compared to the coming 70 year old baker owner’s daily efforts to bake an assortment of bread and cakes with his wife.
I preferred the cakes here, for those moist sponge with smooth buttercream was something my home baked version couldn’t triumph. Also the orange flavouring chiffon cake was delightful too.
While I am glad uncle gets to retire once the community around Tanglin Halt goes into our history books for good- what a loss of heritage it would be should these old school bakeries gradually dwindle and vanish one day.

P.S: look at that old school plastic bread tray!
