snapshot/bakery: i recommend IJY Sheng Bakery

53 Shida Road



Kid friendliness: just make sure they don't touch everything

Visit reviewed: 3/6/2010

After passing by this bakery so many times near the Shida night market (on the way to Yofroyo), I finally got a chance to try it.

Windows full of breads and cakes, my first pick was my favorite- a huge bun swirled with sticky brown sugar. Slightly crispy on the outside, tear apart soft on the inside, the swirled brown sugar is almost gummy, like thin mochi. You must eat the breads the same day, since they never seem as good the next morning. I also preferred the oversized bread to the brown sugar croissants, which didn't have the same gooey texture inside.

I didn't get a chance to try any of the cakes or desserts, but I'll be back!

Pretty! Just another reason why I like shopping at bakeries in Asia. There is plenty of freshly baked Asian style bread in the US but none are this pretty :).
