The bread run …

In Eating out, Food from Home, Outside Dubai, singapore, snacks n bites on July 17, 2012 at 18:53

Some unexpected fun on a routine boring sunday.

Sundays are rest days for me and I usually would rather stay home than head out.

S wanted to check out this bakery that she read about in the paper for having an interesting range of breads and is supposed to produce one of the better tau sa bao in town.

There I was thinking that it was going to be easy to score some bread and be home in no time but boy was I gonna be proven wrong.

We were led on a wild goose chase, lesson learnt: double check the address listed in the review done by the straits times!!!

They listed the address as Ang Mo Kio Ave 4 Blk728 #01-48. We arrived at Ang Mo Kio Ave 4 and spend like 25 mins driving around looking for blk 728 but despite driving up and down Ave 2 three times we were unable to locate blk 728.

We tried google and checked found another address listed in hungrygowhere.com. The address listed was Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 Blk728 #01-48. We then drove to Ave 6 from Ave 4. It took us 5 mins to drive to Ave 6 but took us another 30 mins to locate the block. We finally found block 728 and were overjoyed but then our joy was short-lived as we went around the entire block and guess what? No bakery found.

We got pretty frustrated at this point and we were determined to locate the bakery.

We finally decided to try Ave 4 again and this time we decided to try block 628 which houses the food centre. Euraka! this was the breakthrough that we had been looking for! We had finally located Yi Dai Mian Bao (translated as ‘A bag of bread)!!!

We were glad to see that there was still bread available for us at 8pm at night and that it was not all sold out.

Rather trying just a one or two types of bread, we literally ended up with the namesake of the bakery, A bag of bread each lolz. So much so that the auntie at the counter had an issue adding the total price!

Was it worth the journey? Well I would say that they do serve one of the best versions of tau sa biah and do a mean version of the curry buns! Try the charcoal black sesame bun for something that is out of the ordinary.

Do note that they do not mass produce items so it would take some waiting if there is something in particular that you would like.

Ps loved the way the car smells after we left the bread in the car … The yummy smell of freshly baked bread …
