To-die-for raisin cream cheese buns.
Overall Score 
 
5.0

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!

Absolutely love this bakery. I'm a sucker for bread, therefore I can get really picky when it comes to bakery. Alongside with a few more different bakeries, Barcook reigns as one of my first few bakeries to go to.

Their specialties are definitely the 'wiped-out-in-30min' cream cheese raisin bun! As there aren't many outlets islandwide just yet, I've been hunting for that similar soft fluffy bread that is filled with that cheesy goodness from other stores, but sadly, I have yet to find anything comparable to Barcook's! I'm also quite in love with their Wasabi bun, Potato Cheese and Satay with cucumber bun. They have the quirkiest combinations that one wouldn't really think of, and when you take the risk and try it, you'll be back for more of it.

There is usually a queue during breakfast and lunch time, but the queue disappears pretty fast as the cashiers are really efficient. The buns are so reasonably charged to the extent that you have customers buying 20 at one go! (nope, not kidding about it. i clearly remember it because she took my last raisin cream cheese!!)

I'll definitely recommend this to my friends and families, because Barcook has definitely set the standards for bakeries to follow.

There are just so many buns that I love in Barcook! My mum was the one who started buying buns from Barcook because it was near to her work place and if she arrives early for work, she would head down to Barcook to buy the freshly made buns!

We would usually have them for breakfast. The first bun from Barcook that I tried was the raisin and cheese bun, it was really creamy and thick. However, when I tried my first potato cheese bun, it really tasted like heaven! The potato is very fragrant and mixed with the cheddar cheese, it was a perfect combination! Another of my favourite is the cha siew bun too!

Every now and then, I would beg my mother to head to her office early so that she can buy the buns from Barcook before all gets sold out.

When I was working in Raffles Place, I used to frequent this bakery at OUB Plaza. I used to have to wait for specific timings for certain buns. One bun not to be missed is the Potato Nachos Bun. The bun has the same soft texture as the Raisin Cream bun, but the top is glazed with egg white and of course the inside is filled with the heavenly goodness of cheese and mashed potatoes. It's so good when eaten hot!! The signature bun, Raisin Cream is always available at the counter. It's not only good when it's hot, but it's also good when chilled! The cream cheese doesn't harden when it's chilled and it tastes very much like cheesecake! Try this bakery if you haven't!

I frequent this bakery pretty often, and i will keep going back there as long as they serve their Raisin Cream Cheese bun. This native bakery perfected the art of baking and it has a wide range of delectables to offer. My all-time favourite is the afore mentioned Raisin Cream Cheese but coming in at a close second is also the Mixberry Cheese! Their cakes are fantastic as well, and the Passion Mango is ranked first on my list!
