This halal bakery is rather small, but there is quite a variety of freshly baked breads available here. There are the standard size buns like Apple Bun ($1.20), Cheese Sausage ($1.30) and Chicken Burger ($1.50), but if you want something lighter, they also have smaller sized buns like Chicken Ham, Chilli Prawn or Red Bean bun at the very affordable price of $0.50. Also spotted here are baguettes, muffins and slices of local cakes like pandan cake. The breads are mostly placed outside the shop, i
This not only looks good with the unique honeycomb markings on the surface of the bread, but it also tastes equally good. The bread is quite soft and the US sausage is tasty and quite springy to chew on. I find this to be quite worth the price of $1.20 and will definitely buy this again. Nutella Bun ($1.30)
After the US Sausage bun, this was a bit of a let down, maybe because I had high expectations for this especially due to its namesake. The bread is soft as well, but there is no Nutella taste. Instead, there is just a slight sprinkling of chocolate bits over the bun, which isn't very chocolatey in taste either. However, the almond slices (instead of hazelnut) contribute to the nutty flavour to the bread and also add quite a fair bit of crunchiness. The name "Almond Chocolate Bun" is probably more accurate for it. Portuguese Egg Tart ($1.30)
The egg tart costs more than quite a number of their buns but it is quite decent overall. The egg tart is flaky and egg custard has a smooth and creamy texture. It is also lightly sweet, just enough to taste but not too much to overwhelm.
Overall, the prices for the buns are affordable and many are in the range of $1.20 to $1.60 for the bigger ones like the burgers. Service is also quite acceptable here. Taste-wise, there are some hits and misses, but I think overall, it is generally quite decent. It'd have been nice if there are more variety of other pastries and baked goods like cakes to choose from.
