Food Review: The Bakehaus At Owen Road | Freshly Baked Artisanal And Sourdough Breads In Farrer Park
The Place Opened less than a year ago, I checked Out The Bakehaus recently, a homegrown bakery which makes their own Artisanal And Sourdough Breads. Located along the relatively quiet estate of Owen Road in a shophouse setting, The Bakehaus spots a small counter space which displays all their bakes for the day proudly. It is a grab and go concept, with no dine-in capacity. I am always on the hunt for good bakeries in Singapore, and it seems like this circuit breaker has boosted the demand of bakeries all around town. Think Mother Dough Bakery and Petit Pain, which are local bakeries I highly recommend as well.
The Food Back to The Bakehaus, it seems like the team alternate some of their offerings every week, but one thing for sure is that there is very good variety of bakes on display, be it sweet or savoury.
I ordered a mix of the Butter Croissant (S$3), Gula Melaka Almond Croissant (S$8), Kouign Amann (S$6.50), Bacon Cream Cheese Danish (S$9), a loaf of Brioche Bread, and finally, the Triple Belgium Dark Chocolate Brownie (S$6).
My favourite of the lot is definitely the Kouign Amann! I have been craving for this French pastry recently, especially after having the delicious version from another online bakery, La Matin. This version from Bakehaus spots a crispy texture and leans towards the sweeter side, sinful but satisfying.
The Butter Croissant is above average, though it can be slightly more buttery for me. I still prefer the plain croissant from Tiong Bahru Bakery.
For something savoury, the freshly baked Bacon Cream Cheese Danish is delicious. The flavour is well-balanced, not too creamy and the cheese is not too overpowering.
The Bakehaus does seasonal and special bakes, and I happened to chance upon the Gula Melaka Almond Croissant on the weekend I visited. I thought that this sweet treat is a nice gesture to pay homage to an ingredient closer to home (Gula Melaka) by integrating it with French pastry. It is sweet, yet it doesn’t take away the almond flavour at the same time.
Rants Only takeaways here, not a space to enjoy a coffee and pastry unfortunately.
Will I Return Again? I like the neighbourhood vibe of Owen Road and am happy that there is a bakery like The Bakehaus to inject a new lease of life to this precinct. Drop by for some fresh bakes if you are a pastry and bread lover!
