Traditional Bread at its best

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!

have it with kaya, peanut butter, blueberry jam or on its own, the traditional roti loaves sold here are soft and pillowy. finish them within two days though as they aren't baked with preservatives.

Long established and Traditional Bakery

This bakery shop has been around for many years and it is one of the few remaining oldest shops in this area.

It is a bakery of breads and supplying them to coffee shops, canteens and food courts though it also does retail selling. Currently the owner's son is running the shop.

The outlook of the shop looks very "old, dark and messy" but they do make quite good bread.

I have been patronising this shop for many years and the bread are freshly baked. The main difference about the bread made by traditional bakery and those by Guardinia, Sunshine etc is that the former will not last as long as the latter (as they do not have add artificial preservatives to prolong the "life" of the bread) but to me, they are fresher and tastier where you can have past fond memories when you eat them.

I like their traditional bread and the "colourful bread" (bread that comes in a few colours like pink, yellow and brown which is very rarely seem today). Of course, they also have other kinds of bread like those come with peanut butter, kaya etc.

You can also buy the specially made kaya or peanut butter.

If you are a bread lover and want to trace back your childhood or younger days of eating traditional bread, you should come here!

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
