This hidden bakery in Everton Park has unique bagels and pastries like truffle salt bread, muah chee bagel, taro pandan chiffon & more

by Jermina

There’s no denying that Everton Park is filled with many hidden gems for all the dessert and bread lovers out there. 

Ever heard of Morimori Yogashi, Hello Arigato or The Better Half? Seasoned cafe hoppers would probably have one of these places on their radar. 

Well, another humble bakery joining the ranks is The Flour Department which serves specialty bagels, pastries as well as hot dishes (save this for your next trip to the hipster neighbourhood).

As a cosy and hole-in-the-wall bakery, The Flour Department operates slightly differently compared to its neighbours where their menu rotates monthly and the items may vary according to availability.

If you don’t wanna make a wasted trip down, I’d highly suggest checking in before heading down! 

There are dine-in seatings as well, but it’s a small space so perhaps a pit stop for afternoon tea or brunch?

But, enough chit-chat and let’s talk about the food. 

Many people have been raving about the bestseller Original Salt Bread (S$2.80) boasting a crispy exterior and fluffy inside topped with flaky sea salt.

Hearsay the buttery aroma is enough to make your stomach growl so it comes with no surprise that it has become their fastest pastry to sell out (come early if you wanna get your hands on it!). 

Alternatively, the Truffle Salt Bread (S$3.50) is an elevated version of it with umami-rich truffle and is best eaten on the spot when it is fresh out of the oven.

Of course, you have to try a bagel or two so why not start with the Peanut Muah Chee Bagel (S$6.80)

The bagel is encased with an oh-so-chewy muah chee with a burst of light and fragrant peanut cream. If you love muah chee, this one is not to be missed.

For something a little more savoury, go for the Salted Egg Yolk Bagel (S$15) with crispy cereal chicken and garlic butter or Aburi Mentaiko Egg Mayo Bagel (S$14) for lunch instead.

Those who successfully manage to score a seat to dine-in, make sure to try the Creamy Shakshuka (S$18). Unlike the usual shakshuka with a tomato-base, this one has a cream baseloaded with potatoes, chicken ham, cheese, and mushroom topped with black truffle and crispy lotus root. It pairs perfectly with their foccacia bread.

Besides bread and hot dishes, they also serve pastries like Black Sesame Mochi Peanut Butter with Matcha Cake-in-a-tart (S$12) and Taro Pandan Chiffon Cookie Butter Cake-in-a-tart (S$8.90)

The latter is for all the hardcore taro fanatics — enjoy a smooth and generous amount of taro paste encased in pandan chiffon sprinkled with sweet cookie crumbs.

Looking for something to wash it all down with?

Get the Strawberry Mochi Milk Latte (S$8) or Pure Pistachio Latte (S$8) which comprises a thick and nutty pistachio paste in milk — not going to lie, a cup of it sounds so good right now

With so many options to choose from, I’d hardly know where to start if I was there! If I were you, I’d hurry down before everything sells out!

Will you be dropping by for a bagel fix?
