Famous HK Pastry Chain Kee Wah Bakery To Open Its First Singapore Outlet At ION Orchard

6th September 2021

Kee Wah Bakery at ION Orchard

If you’ve been to Hong Kong, you’ll definitely have seen Kee Wah Bakery around. With more than 100 outlets in the world, of which an excess of 60 outlets are located in Hong Kong, the family business has come a long way since its conception in 1938 as a neighbourhood grocery store. This November, their expansion will land on Singapore shores, with their very first store here opening at ION Orchard.

Few details are known at the moment, but what’s clear is that Kee Wah’s outlet at ION Orchard is located at Basement Four, in between HEYTEA and Eu Yan Sang.

Whatever you’ll be able to get your hands on at this ION Orchard branch will be brought in directly from Kee Wah’s factories in Hong Kong. Sadly, they’ll not be selling their Wife Cakes, AKA lao po bing, at this juncture, because these need to be baked fresh. If it’s the Wife Cake that you’re after, consider getting it from another famed HK institution, Hang Heung Bakery, which are producing them here on their store premises.

Some of Kee Wah’s most famous products include Almond Biscuits, Egg Rolls, Pineapple Shortcakes, Crunchy Peanut Candy, Sweet Crispies, and mooncakes. Here’s a fun fact: Kee Wah’s Almond Biscuits were first made for sale to Kee Wah’s neighbours during the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong during World War Two! These well-loved treats became a symbol of hope for the family and their neighbours during those dark years.

Another iconic product that’s especially apt for Kee Wah’s Singapore outlet is Panda Cookies, which are cookies embellished with chocolate powder to look like a very cute panda.
