Taiwanese-style bagels by home bakery JIABABA

If bagels are your go-to carb of choice, here’s something to bookmark. JIABABA is a home-based business selling Taiwanese-style bagels loaded with trendy fillings in the likes of taro, peanut butter with mochi, and black sesame.

Started in September this year, the online-only bakery is run by two Taiwanese sisters wanting to bring a taste of Taiwan to Singapore. Unlike traditional bagels that tend to be shiny with a hard crust and chewy middle, these Taiwanese-style variants lean towards the soft and spongy end.

JIABABA is inspired by some of the hottest Taiwanese bread and filling trends, such as this taro-filled sandwich. Featuring copious amounts of creamy taro paste with huge taro chunks, this sandwich is the epitome of a taro dessert done right.

The home-based bakery’s bagels are made with natural ingredients and contain no added refined sugar or oil, so you can indulge guilt-free. As they’re freshly made in small batches, you should keep them frozen until you’re ready to tuck in. Defrost and steam until they’re soft and pillowy for the perfect bite!

JIABABA is a small home-based business, so slots are super limited, and the available flavours change every week. Some of the past flavour combinations include Red Bean Bagel with Taro and Black Sesame, and Hojicha Bagel with Taro and Peanut Butter, and Black Sesame Bagel with Peanut Butter and Mochi.

You can place your order on their Instagram page, via an online order form that opens every Wednesday or Saturday.
