The Bakery By Woodlands Sourdough probably made some of the best sourdough breads (and can I add brownies) in Singapore, but the shop closed despite enjoying success through word-of-mouth.
It was no easy feat for a humble bakery shop at the corner of Serene Centre.
Previous owners Chalith and Nur are said to be taking a break after 2 years of being very busy, and currently travelling, having sold their portion of shares away.
Unsuspecting customers may not have even noticed a difference, as Micro Bakery and Kitchen has taken over the space.
Their previous partner has continued the business, while maintaining the same philosophy of making small batch, hand-made breads.
In terms of décor and positioning, there isn’t that much of a difference as it continues to serve up artisanal sourdough breads, sweet bakes, toasts and coffee.
Their breads are naturally leavened using organic and sustainable flour, using natural ingredients and no additives.
From 9:30am to 3pm, you can also get your fill on sandwiches such as Grilled 3-cheese with Sauerkraut ($12) Charred Cauliflower ($12); Mushroom Tartine ($10), or House Ricotta ($12).
Look out at the board for fresh bakes of the day.
As I went at an hour when almost everything was sold out, I had a Banana Walnut Loaf ($5) which was very decent – moderately dense, lightly dense, nutty and delicious.
If it could have been fabulously-moist (just a little more), would have been the perfect loaf.
Coffee beans are currently sourced from Common Man Coffee Roasters; but if you opt for filter, the coffee would be brewed using Artisan Roastery beans roasted in Malaysia.
