The trend is finally switching lanes. Last year, it was all about matcha buns, and we were on a journey to uncover the best matcha buns available in Singapore. Of course, it is a tie between DONQ and St. Leaven. Taste is always pretty subjective. Moving on, now, we are on an adventure to find all the traditional bakeries around Singapore. There is no better time than the present!

So far, we have found some interesting traditional bakeries including one that makes rainbow loaves, and another one that makes delightful buttercream cakes. Located in People’s Park Complex area, you will find another noteworthy traditional bakery. Small and humble, Lau Chong Kee Mini is famous for its interesting custard buns!

Why is it interesting? Most of the time when we think about all things cream and custard, the bun or puff will usually be in a round shape. However, Lau Chong Kee Mini has adopted a hotdog bun-style with an open end. Seeing the jam-packed custard in the middle definitely makes us point to the pastry case and say, “Can I have some of these as well, please?”.
