We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to Japanese-style bakes in Singapore, yet among the myriad of choices available, Gokoku has got to be one of our favourites! This Japanese bakery hails from Kobe, Japan, and boasts almost 60 years of experience when it comes to baked goods.
What really sets them apart if their use of brown rice and Japanese flour in their bakes, resulting in a uniquely soft and chewy texture in every bite. Be sure to try their signature Gokoku Shichifuku Pan ($2.40), as well as their Signature Red Bean Anpan ($2.60).
