Cafes for brunch and pastries receive a lot of love from Singaporeans, but traditional bakeries have a soft spot in our hearts—especially for most of us who grew up with them. Sing Hon Loong is one of the remaining few, if not the only, 24/7 bakery in Singapore that still sells the same old-school buns we all know and love. The Whampoa bakery has been around for over 50 years and counting.

Regulars return for the soft and fluffy bread, which is a taste of yesteryear. Choose from a wide array of buns on display, in classic flavours such as Coconut ($2.20) and Red Bean ($2.20).
Apparently, Sing Hon Loong also used to supply bread to Ya Kun Kaya Toast! They’ve since stopped due to a lack of manpower.

Another popular flavour is the Curry Bun ($1.50), comprising soft, almost mashed potato chunks in a mild curry sauce, wrapped with fluffy bread.
If you want to bring home some bread for breakfast, grab a plain loaf ($2.20) to go along with your kopi or teh.

The bakery’s old-school charm keeps patrons, both young and old, coming back for more. The shelves of fresh loaves and the irresistible aroma of baked goodies will draw you into the store, even if you’re just passing by. Additionally, they’re open 24 hours a day, daily, so you can get your carby fix whenever you wish.
