It’s the second year that Hari Raya will be celebrated a little differently with virtual visitations, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to stock up on loads of Raya goodies for you and the fam to snack on.
The zeitgeist of modern Raya means that traditional Raya kuehs alone aren’t gonna cut it, especially since many bakeries today have modern concoctions with unique flavours like durian, parmesan cheese, and white chocolate.
To save you the search, here are six halal bakeries to get both old-school and contemporary Raya goodies.
