Located at Upper Paya Lebar Road, Jie Bakery & Confectionery is a old bakery that retails its homemade traditional roti loaves.
The two loaves of bread cost about $5.80, but definitely we thought it was worth the price. These are one of the very few traditional bakeries you can find in Singapore which still retain the taste of traditional bread as compared to Japanese or European-style bakeries sprouting up in busy crowd. If you are also a fan of traditional bread, your trip will not be wasted. Furthermore, if you happened to visit the bakery in the noon, you might just be in time to taste another traditional food - Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint, a duck specialist shop right beside it.
I can't resist the kaya sandwiches here. Some accuse these beautiful white loaves of being bland but to me they are soft, cottony pillows of nostalgia. I'll certainly rue the day these traditional bakeries have all died out to make way for the slew of European-style bakeries sprouting up everywhere. Take a break from all that sourdough, people!
