Local Breads And Artisan Breads

I crave for good artisan sourdough breads but the Singaporean in me loves a Soft pillowy red bean bun fresh from the oven anytime of the day.

While you would have paid loads for sourdough bread and dips in cafes these days , you get yours for a really affordable 3 dollars at mezza9.

Sounds too good to be true ? Wait till you sink your teeth in this excellent sourdough, crusty on the outside and moist and flavourful on the inside .

The artichoke dip is so delicious - better than any pesto that I have ever had. It was creamy with a depth of a combination of a herby, garlicky flavour .

I would just dine at mezza9 just for this .

Think fresh mushrooms, artichokes and forest ham on a perfect pizza base that’s both slightly chewy and crusty .

I am in heaven.

In my opinion , Chef willie makes the best pizza in the whole wide world 🌎

There’s just something sincere and warming about eating his pizzas. The dough could be the same but it depends on who stretches it and who bakes it . Every small detail matters and this is why I can tell the difference if the pizza was made by chef willie himself or someone else.

I love his humility and his perfectionist attitude to work. He left Pete’s Place for a while but now he’s back ( for a while ).

So do catch him in action and see if you agree with me about his pizzas 😊

Lovely hidden place for bread and pastries .

This bread was crusty on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside . The sun dried tomatoes and the olives provided a nice savoury note while the cheese provided some moisture and creaminess 😊

Ever since kok Sen has become so crazily crowded , this has been one of the places that I jump ship to.

This cafe serves up some pretty good sandwiches , quiches and all day breakfast sets .

All day breakfast mantou Set with
Very very very very very good homemade kaya

I am so excited that I wanna shout out !
For those of you that are mantou /bread lovers ,
You just gotta get down to just dough and just get their mantou with homemade kaya set .

The kaya is so creamy and so aromatic that I can’t get enough of it .

I want more !!!!!!!!!

Gold standard homemade kaya 😍
The homemade best kaya I have eaten by far .

My recommendation is that you ask for you mantou steamed instead of toasted. The default set comes with a toasted mantou.

I don’t see why anyone would want a toasted mantou instead of a fluffy like cloud ⛅️ steamed mantou.

My hiding place

Provence bakery is my favourite hiding place for a quiet and slow and affordable breakfast.

I love how fluffy and soft and cinnamon-y the cinnamon rolls are ( really one of the best I have had ) and I love how crisp and well executed these mini croissants are ( the glazed tops definitely adds brownie points 😛) .

This is my recommended combination if you can’t decide whether you want a cinnamon bun or a croissant .

Get both in petite sizes .

Something that I find quite puzzling is that the standards of the breads differ daily depending on who’s the baker .

Looks are as important as taste to me so there are days that I simply step in , glance and walk away because the breads look squashed up , out of shape or poorly prepared .

And there are days that I can’t stop glancing at the beautifully uniformly shaped breads - all puffed up in glory.

Matcha heaven

I like all this matcha and all things bread.
So what better than a sourdough matcha red bean bread.

Made with a generous amount of high quality matcha , I was in matcha heaven . Most matcha breads out there boast more of a colour ( from food colouring ) than any flavour.

The bread was incredibly moist , slightly chewy and was very light and clean on the palate . The red bean adzuki feeling is also made from scratch.

Sourdough is probably the healthiest form of bread 😊 ( if ever bread was healthy 😋) and this matcha adzuki bun is really the best matcha bun I have eaten in a Long Long time :)

You will be pleased to find that the breads offered by real food are free of preservatives , bread improvers , artificial colouring , refined sugar .

Everything natural, everything good 😊

I finally had the opportunity to meet the man behind these buns.

Crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside , aromatic with a light buttery fragrance then slapped on with a unique homemade kaya with a burst of a good coconut and slight caramel flavour .

We talked about food and bread and i am thankful that he so generously shared about bread making and the secret behind these fluffy , airy buns .

This bakery is more accurately situated within Marina Square ( on the second floor ) near where Bangkok jam is .

I love their pumpkin bread which is filled with luxurious pumpkin purée . The bread is so soft , almost like a pillow 😊.

This is under the same management as mama bakery at both Novena Square 2 and fortune centre .

Be sure to swing by especially after 6pm because breads sell for close to 40 percent discount .

Do give their signature dark chocolate couverture bread and their wide range of whole meal breads a try .

Not artisan type bread but more Japanese type soft breads - healthier though !

You won’t find another establishment that makes their own pau fillings just like how just dough does theirs.

The yam filling is made from scratch and is so creamy and aromatic . Without any added fillers , what you get is that subtle sweetness of pure yam.

The pau dough lends its colour from natural fruits and vegetables and makes it extra fun to eat because of its unique outlook. Topped with a walnut , this added a little crunch to the pau .

Pair your pau with their homemade ginger teh and just sit and watch the world go by with that beautiful fountain view .

Really really really good breads ... ...

The last time I had Maison Kayser was more than 6 to 7 years ago when they first opened .

For a while , the prices seemed to be increasing and the quality seemed to declined so I stopped partronizing.

While shopping at ntuc finest at Scotts square in recent times, I had the privilege to try the bread sampler and I thought the breads were really flavourful - especially the dark chocolate and hazelnut honey bread . I assure you - if you try a piece , you can’t stop....

Expensive as it might be at 5.80 and for a relatively small loaf, I gave in to my heart over my wallet this time and got the black sesame sourdough because I was craving for a good sourdough bread and hadn’t find one that I really really enjoyed amongst the bakeries in Singapore .

You pay a price and you get the quality . The black sesame sourdough bread was crusty on the exterior and chewy and moist inside . The bread was neither too dense Nor too dry - it was absolutely perfect .

Using only natural leaven and a Long Long Long fermentation process , the sourdough flavour was well pronounced but not disturbing - in fact, it was very enjoyable.

I found some of the bread offerings from Maison kayser to be quite similar to bread and hearth , especially the matcha orange and the dark chocolate rolls . Even Their pain au Chocolat share a certain resemblance . Not that anyone should be particularly concerned but that’s just the investigative part about me 😛

Do give the dark chocolate and hazelnut honey bread samples a try if you are in the area 😊

If this doesn’t get you out of bed in the morning ... ..... what will ?? 😝

I am addicted to Dong Po cafe . Everything about it os Homemade .

This is the best bostock in Singapore ( not that it can be found widely in the first place ) and it deserves some pretty good attention. I researched and found that the bostock is actually a traditional French recipe 😊

Crisp sliced almonds over a layer of frangipani and on to of a well toasted homemade bread. The bostock is very light and surprisingly not sweet at all so perfect for those of you who have Low tolerance to sweets.
