Duke Bakery has opened its first store in Singapore!
Think Duke Bakery is a European bakery? You’re just one-third correct. Duke Bakery is actually a retailer of Japanese European style artisan bread with Taiwan origin. The chef has brilliantly incorporated the Japanese style of light and soft bread, with the centuries-old European style of using yeast from fermented fruits and finest quality ingredients, for natural flavour and a healthier alternative. So what you get is a truly unprecedented taste and texture of bread, suit for all the caprices of appetite! Baked fresh daily, you even get to choose from over 60 bread options!
By texture, we mean you can sink your teeth into soft, moist and chewy crumb with thin crisp crust, and generous portions of ingredient. It’s heartening to learn that Duke Bakery does not skimp on quality and value. Prices range from $3.50 to $8.50 for a slab of bread. We particularly enjoyed Carlbell (卡門貝爾), one of Four Kings（四大天王）Signature Artisan Breads, for its perfect harmony of sweet cream cheese filling and sour cranberry notes. Made with quality yeast from grape, it’s no wonder why the bread is so appetising.
Four Kings chocolate breads are a hit too. Baked in large loaves for close to an hour, then cut into thick slices to retail, the Chocolate and Cheese (多倫黑加麗) impressed us with its combination of chocolate infused crumb and chunks of smooth cream cheese. The Chocolate Bun (黑眼豆豆) also left us in awe with its velvety chocolate beans and cocoa powder fillings, right smack in the centre of the crumb. You can actually savour the rich and robust chocolate flavour.
Saving the best for last and taking the throne is none other than Crown (皇冠), the last Four Kings bread. It conjoins five small buns that have a generous smear of cream cheese in their centre, to create one large bread that resembles the shape of a crown, hence the name. Every single mouthful is sensational with smooth cream cheese and chewy crumb.
