Neighbourhood bakeries are definitely underrated gems in Singapore. Evoking nostalgia with traditional bakes, even the simplest types of bread and pastries can take us back to our childhood. Nestled below a HDB block at Telok Blangah lies Bread Story, where they have been serving up their unique and tasty UFO Chicken Floss Buns for over the last 30 years!
Bread Story At Telok Blangah
Like your typical bakery, Bread Story offers various buns and cakes, with pastries like Egg Tarts and Chicken Pies. On top of that, they also offer a few kuehs, muffins, and doughnuts with chocolate and rainbow sprinkles that we grew up enjoying.
They also have a second outlet located at Crescent Mall, but all the baked goods are delivered from their main branch here at Blk 78B Telok Blangah.
Despite baking their UFO Buns for over 30 years, it has surprisingly only picked up in popularity over recent years. How its popularity grew was that Mazda (yes, the car brand) started ordering the buns for their events which soon became a hit. This resulted in large group buys for the UFO Buns and they have remained a popular item at Bread Story to this day.
Unique And Tasty UFO Buns!
Resembling a taco, the UFO Chicken Floss ($1.40) is a chiffon-like sponge cake with a generous amount of floss and homemade mayonnaise stuffed in between. The cake is light, fluffy, and moist, with a pleasant amount of sweetness that blends perfectly with the savouriness of the floss.
The chicken floss has a good bite to them and doesn’t clump together, allowing them to be evenly spread out with each bite. For those who aren’t big fans of mayo, you’ll be happy to know there isn’t an overwhelming amount of it, and it also gives a subtle tanginess to lift the flavours.
For those who prefer a little kick of heat, the UFO Spicy Floss ($1.40) is the one to go for. Similar to the original, the spicy floss however adds a pleasant kick of heat but do note that the taste of the floss is less prominent due to the spice.
Unique, affordable, and tasty, what more could you ask for? If you enjoy sweet-savoury buns, this is definitely a spot to check out. Hurry down today!
