If you’re familiar with the pop-up and farmer’s market scene in Singapore, chances are you’ve come across Marymount Bakehouse, a home-based bakery specialising in artisanal sourdough bakes.
It can be hard to get your hands on their aesthetically pleasing creations, which evoke major cottagecore vibes, given that they tend to sell out very quickly at events.
Fortunately, they’ve finally opened a physical store in Upper Thomson along 23 Sin Ming Road.
If the address sounds familiar, that’s because the bakery has teamed up with the folks at Mr Bucket Chocolaterie to deliver a one-of-a-kind retail experience featuring both chocolate bon bons and freshly baked goods.
Dine-in seating is extremely limited, with only a few makeshift tables and chairs outside the shop, so we highly recommend getting your orders to go.
In celebration of this venture, Marymount Bakehouse has launched their very own spin on the classic sourdough English muffins — Marymufflets (S$7), or stuffed English muffins, with toppings like Black Truffle Béchamel and Poached Pear, and Pumpkin and Bacon.
There’s even a French toast-inspired rendition with Bananas and Morning Rice Custard that sounds like the perfect breakfast treat.
Crowd favourites like the Shepherd’s Pie (The MMBH way, from S$16.90), comprising angus beef tail and lamb mince cooked in its own jus, jamon croquetas, and a potato filling with Japanese mayo egg tartare, will also feature in the bakery’s line-up.
I’m also really intrigued by the Roasted Corn Chowder and Basil Crab Levain Pie (from S$18.80), which is accompanied by smoked bell pepper puree, buttermilk cream, crispy corn kernels, and roasted buttered corn — sounds like summer!
One of the most recognisable and well-loved menu items has got to be the Focaccia Pomme de Terre (from S$22.50), potato chip-studded focaccia adorned with black truffle and burnt leek cream.
But if good ol’ sourdough loaves are what you seek, there are several rustic bakes to choose from, including the Apple-Wood Smoked Mushroom (S$18.80), and the classic Marymount House Loaf (S$14.50), which sounds absolutely amazing paired with Black Garlic Butter (S$15 for 150g).
You can also find non-savoury bakes like the Matcha, Lime and Hibiscus Levain Pie (from S$26.50), which is currently available for pre-order.
Oh, and don’t leave without picking up a box of Mr Bucket’s exquisite Bon Bons and Hot Chocolate if you and your (lucky) friends or family are in need of a sweet pick-me-up!
So, if you’re eager to treat yourself to some seriously stunning sourdough bakes, feel free to either walk in to the store or place your pre-orders here.
