Travelling to Japan has been on my bucket list for the longest time — simply because of its scenic view and authentic fresh food.
It’s not hard to admit that the bread game in Japan is on a whole other level.
That is why I was so excited to discover Morimori Yogashi Bakery in Everton Park selling Japanese pastries (now I can have a taste of Japan without travelling).
If you’re not sure where to start, get the signature Fujisawa Garlic Cheese (S$3) loaded with Japanese mayo filling and a ton of garlic for an intense garlicky flavour.
One piece is never enough (at least for me), but luckily they offer it in various bundles such as S$6 for two pieces or S$11 for four pieces.
Just don’t eat it before a first date if you know what I mean.
Another crowd favourite is the Japanese Mentaiko Seaweed Cheese Bread (S$12 for 4 pcs) featuring a generous spread of cod fish roe mixed with mayo on a soft bun.
Every bite is a burst of creamy umami with a slight heat — super delicious.
They’ve got other breads as well such as Shio Pan, Japanese Curry and Japanese Sweet Potato Bread starting from S$2.
If you’re with company and feeling a little peckish, the Large Signature Fujisawa Garlic Bread (S$9) is more than enough to keep everyone satisfied.
Bread can get filling rather quickly but you can always try out their mini snacks instead.
Go for the Kinako Warabi Mochi (S$13.90 for 16 pcs) or the Matcha Warabi Mochi (S$14.90 for 16 pcs). It comes coated in a nutty and earthy powder, so feel free to enjoy it with kuromitsu syrup (black sugar) for a subtle sweetness.
The perfect treat if you enjoy food with chewy and soft textures.
Speaking of chilled desserts, enjoy their limited edition Hokkaido Milk with Premium Mao Shan Wang Durian Puff (S$36 for 6 pcs). You can tell that they don’t skimp on ingredients here from the lava-filled durian cream.
If you consider yourself a durian connoisseur, get the Hokkaido Milk with D24 Durian Puff (S$28 for 6 pcs) which may just steal your heart.
Want something to bring home?
The Hokkaido Milk Roll (S$15) comes in various flavours including Mango Passionfruit, Taro Yam, Matcha Yuzu Red Bean and more!
Sink your teeth into the light and fluffy sponge cake, layered with soft velvety cream.
If you’re not going to Japan anytime soon, Morimori Yogashi Bakery is a good place to satisfy those cravings (I mean the choices that you can get are truly endless).
Will you be heading down soon?
