They have other varieties of bread as well, not as many as you seen compared to other bakery but it’s confirmed that you eat most of their bread fresh and they do sell it at a reasonable price! They don’t display most of their bread as they prefer to serve it once it’s out from the oven. It can be seen that they emphasis very much on the hygiene of the food, working area and the quality as well. They have some unique bread produced such as cempedak bread, fried sausage, choz banana or even barley custard. As with the usual bakery shop would have, they do sell beautiful and delicious cakes as well.
The cream cheese buns from Barcook are so good that I ate 3 at once before. That might have been because I was hungry, but mostly it was due to the sheer enjoyment I derived from eating it.
The bun is amazingly fluffy and soft, while they were generous with the cream cheese.The plump raisins scattered throughout the bun also go beautifully with the sweet and creamy filling. One bun is simply not enough!
According to my friends, other buns offered at the bakery are equally good. Move aside Breadtalk, Barcook wins this round!
Barcook bakery has 8 outlets in Singapore and one in Malaysia. I have visited the outlets at Nex (which is walking distance from my house, hooray!) , Tampines 1 and OG Albert Complex. The quality of bread in all 3 outlets are pretty comparable and they all have equally long queues. Especially when they first open, the queues can go up to 15 minutes just for bread!
My favourite flavours are ham mushroom and cheese as well as the classic sausage bun! The former is an extremely unique flavour to barcook and the blend of ingredients go perfectly well together - the cheese melts in your mouth and gives you the tangy-cheese-feel when you pull your teeth away from it. The breads are also rather affordable - average $1.50 per piece. Overall, would highly recommend Singaporeans to try Barcook bread!
These buns sell like hot cakes though! If you want to get them, I recommend going earlier to avoid disappointment. I have seen others buy 5 buns at one go, so do not be surprised! Even if you are not a bread type of person, this is highly worth a try. Thumbs up :)
Only after much cajoling from my friends and the long queue I always observed at barcook did I decide to give it a go. Much to my amazement, I actually got hooked onto their bread. Not only the famous cream cheese bread that all the hype is about, but all the other bread were just as amazing.
The cream cheese bun has earned its name. With a generous amount of cream cheese, and the soft bun surrounding it, it is really a taste of heaven. I got another garlic bun and it was just as good. The taste of garlic is just strong enough to leave you yearning for more yet does not leave your breath smelling of garlic.
I have become one of the crazy barcook supporters that would swear upon our lives to get people to try this amazing bread.
After walking aimlessly in the mall, I stumbled upon Barcook Bakery and without hesitation, bought the raisin cream cheese bun and I never regretted it. The bun is soft and the cream cheese filling is very satisfying. I gorged down the bun in a minute and decided to buy more. I think this bun is so popular as I saw people queuing up to get their hands on the buns.
The buns and breads here are fresh and I like the way it stays warm and soft and the display table, proving that the buns are freshly made and out of the oven.
One fine day, I wasn't hungry enough for a full meal so I decided to try this as I was curious why a queue for just bread would be so long! I went ahead and got myself a ham and cheese bun and egg yolk bun. The fillings for the bread available were all very unique and I don't think you can find them at regular HDB bakeries. I took the first bite and oh i'd always remember that glorious moment! I kid. But it was love at first bite. The bread was surprisingly good, I wasn't expecting it to be hot, soft and fluffy.
After that, I find myself craving for Barcook Bakery's bread now and then. Oh, make sure the bread just left the oven so it would be hot and fluffy!
Choosing the white buns over hunger, I gave Barcook's cream cheese with raisin bun my first bite and my day was made. I now look forward to this lovely bread every time my mother buys them home and for good reason. Never have I tastes bread so moist and soft before. The cream cheese doesn't over-power the bread. Instead, it felt like it was there to give you added moisture, playing with your palate to remind you of it's existence.
They were often reluctant to try other breads because their grandparents had bought breads from some pa and mum confectionery and those really turned them off until they dared not breads from "unknown" shops. Sometimes, the older folks felt that breads costing more than one dollar per piece were not worth buying and they rather buy the cheaper version.
Anyway, back to Barcook, my sons absolutely loved the bread and the first time, I only bought two pieces, one for each and it was not enough to go around. Now, whenever I buy from this shop, it would be at least six pieces.
My personal favourites are their raisin cream cheese bun, and this other bun which I can't recall by name that has potatoes and cheese in it. It's an explosion of cheese in the mouth when you bite into it. Yummy, way yummier than Breadtalk's pathetic offerings and more affordable too, if not equally so.
The outlets at Raffles place and Hong Leong complex are usually quite crowded during lunchtimes when the working adults swarmed the area, but the queue moves pretty fast, about 7 minutes max of waiting time. This is defintely worth the queue if you are working in the vicinity.
