The aroma of freshly baked bread has descended upon the shores of Singapore as we see bakery after bakery popping out in different parts of town. Donq Bakery, founded 106 years ago in Japan, has opened its first branch in Singapore. With its long queues and raving reviews, we were eager to try out Donq’s popular creations.

Dutch Bread ($2.40) – A French bread wrapped with cheese and Dutch topping. The Dutch Bread was slightly warmed, indicative of the freshness of Donq’s products. The outer portion of the bread was slightly harder, crusty and crunchy. It had a mild aroma, reminiscent of French baguette. There was a generous filling of cheese inside the bread. Texture wise, the cheese was chunky and soft, but slightly on the bland side.

Cheese Cookie ($2.40) – A soft type of bread with cream cheese filling. In contrast to the Dutch Bread, the cream cheese filling in the Cheese Cookie was more savoury and flavourful. The bread was rather crumbly and dry, which didn’t quite complement the fillings well.

Spinach and Sausage no Oshokujipan ($2.80) – A spinach and sausage bread. Containing both spinach and sausage, this bread was definitely a savoury one. There was nothing extraordinary about this bread though.
