A must-order! If I came alone and only had space for one dish, this would be it. The exterior has a light delicate crunch, and was super soft and fluffy inside. Served warm so you can see the steam escape as you pull apart the bread. Rly loved the buttery crisp crust!! The compound butter was great too - I preferred the kombu butter for its delicious briny flavour, while the bf preferred the other one, but it tasted more like herb butter than garlic butter? It’s much bigger than we expected, so this should fill you up.

This bread was slightly softer than their usual chewy breads. The orange sweet potatoes were very naturally sweet, it’s a smooth purée and v creamy, with some smol cubes that were also v soft. P substantial, it’s carbs on carbs 😛 I liked it and would repurchase!

It’s chewy as with most of their breads, with juicy raisins, cranberries, and blueberries which were q tart. No discernible red wine flavour tho. But there’s a strong blackcurrant juice taste, which I think they soaked the bluebs in. Idm this, but it’s not particularly outstanding.

The Gorgonzola's funky smell came through p strongly to me but it was rather pleasant and I enjoyed the stinky-ness 😛 The onions & apples gave a nice natural sweetness. Sourdough bun is a little on the dense side and a bit oily, so when we finished the filling it got a bit much.

Cold Storage now offers freshly baked bread (not sure exactly how fresh, but definitely more fresh than the packaged bread on the shelves) and they are really cheap. At $3 a loaf on average, for even sourdough, I’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal, and their bread is actl pretty decent. Come early as they sell out by evening.

This ciabatta was vv moist but a bit too wet, tho not gummy. It sports a soft crust, and was fragrant from the herbs. The pumpkin flavour is not distinct, just a slight hint of it. Also there’s some flaxseed and nuts that gives it some additional texture.

The bread smells v fermenty, a rather unique scent - presumably bc of the wine-soaked dried longan smoked using an ancient technique (according to WPC). The longan has a nice dark fermented flavour, not super juicy but not dry either. Bread is chewy and soft w a soft crust and crunchy walnuts. Texture is a but like a European bread? Gives me some Duke/Gokoku vibes. Also liked that there was a p generous amount of dried longan & walnuts, with at least 1 of either in every bite. Was q an enjoyable loaf.

These milk buns had a v sticky surface. Q soft and milky, slightly sweet - thought it was quite pleasant. Bread is rather fluffy but a bit too squishable. There’s a nice bite to it tho. Idm buying again!

Bun is also the cheap bread type, but a bit more oily than usual. The bun is really not my thing. But I liked the filling! The red bean paste has no skin, just pure paste, and was the dense type unlike the lighter tasting Japanese anko, but I liked that it wasn’t very sweet and it didn’t feel too heavy. Actually thinking about it, I feel like it may just come from a supplier. But okay la it’s nice, unlike the low quality bread.

Bun is the typical cheap bread type, but a bit more oily than usual. It’s too “wet” for my liking. Not a fan. Filling was a bssm paste, like a red bean bao filling in terms of texture; flavour-wise it was q salty, like a tausarpiah. For some reason it wasn’t very black sesame-ish despite the colour. I didn’t hate it, but I thought the flavour was a bit strange to me.

It's a soft and dense type of loaf, not the chewy pliable kind - the loaf is moist for it to get condensed into a ball if u squish it. It doesn't rly have a sd tang though. There’s plenty of fig and walnut interspersed throughout the dough! I rly like fig in sd bc there's the little crunchy fig seeds and is naturally sweet. Crust is the soft kind. Overall, not too big a fan of their sd - I prefer sd that is more aerated, like those from micro / bakehaus etc. But figs r always good 😛

One of my favourite coco buns! Have been repurchasing it many times. I like that they use dark brown sugar (or is it gula melaka?), it gives a nice molasses flavour and sweetness to the juicy and crunchy coconut shreds. Also nice that the bun is fat and fluffy.

Texture was v nice!! There’s a good prominent tang and the insides were v soft n pliable n chewy. One of my fav bakeries for sourdough of late. We ate it up so quickly! Toasted it for the crunch.
