Lucky 8 barePack-friendly bakeries for CNY

Updated: Jun 26, 2021

Where to get barePack breads and bakes for Chinese New Year 2021 - with our first ever home bakers, vegan options, and the nation's most iconic individual bakeries!

Lunar New Year in Singapore is synonymous with pineapple tarts and cookies. Unfortunately, it's also a lot of empty paper and plastic boxes that get thrown down the general rubbish chute, and never get to be reused. Not only because many are disposables that are hard to reuse, but because a lot of CNY cookies come in unaesthetic containers that frankly, we don't want to keep, especially not year on year. But luckily, this year, barePack is joining forces with bakeries to provide friendly-packed goodies to delight your family without the negative environmental impact! Here are our new and indulgence-calling bakers.

If you took up Latin in school, you’ll know that gratus, means gratitude, and that is enough to define what motivates these home bakers to share their philosophy and baking skills every day. The vegan home baking business began just one year ago - and while the pandemic would have dishearted a few, the team wouldn't see that stop them from spreading the joy of food. In their own words, their mission is to

provide delicious and decadent pastries that happen to be vegan, not only leaving a smaller carbon footprint on the planet but also as a healthier option.

All their products are free from eggs, dairy, and any animal derivatives (such as honey).

You can pre-order from their website but hurry, CNY order close this Thursday, EOD. That's a good reason to have FOMO if we had any! Remember to put in"barePack member & container" upon checkout. Members get $1 off your CNY cookies and 50 cents off everything else.

Order on gratus

Self-collection is available at Tan Kah Kee MRT.

Delivery on Saturday and Sunday, flat $10 island-wide.

Part of the bakery's secret to creating the most delish artisan pastries and breads in town lies in the quality of the ingredients used and the mastery baking techniques. From rustic sourdough, to artisanal loaves, sweet and savoury viennoiseries, or Basque burnt cheesecakes, there's something for everyone in Bakery Brera. Of course, the lunar new year season has them selling specially crafted cookies like vegan coconut, almond hazelnut, laksa (well, pineapple tarts of course!) but if you didn't make the pre-order cut-off, allow yourself to be surprised by their signatures such as the Cruffin, croissant and Kouign-amann. Hurry down to visit this quaint bakery if you haven’t – do go there early as things are selling out fast. Bakery Brera is committed in doing their part in social causes, environmental friendly and sustainability initiatives.

Orh B. Good don't make many things, in fact, they only make brownies and that's why you can be 100% sure that they make the BEST brownies, or should we say Orh-some Brownies. The B? These brownies are so decadently chocolatey that they have a nickname: Blackout brownies! But it could very well stand for blissful, best, bomb-tastic, beautiful, beastly, bodacious, brilliant... So if you're craving chocolate this Lunar New Year (and we know you are, wipe up that drool and close your mouth please), you now know where to go.

If you love to watch bakers knead their magic then you must come down to Starter Lab cafe in Tiong Bahru. Come to Singapore from Bali where they supplied the island's best-known restaurants with their quality and airy bread, the term at Starter Lab does just that: experiment to bring you the best loaves. And they don't rush the process, with a minimum of 24 hours of fermenting each loaf (each bread variety is different) which gives them that characteristic lightness and rich aroma. Scones, miso baguette, and their signature sourdough such as Rosemary, Lemon and Sea Salt sourdough which they use for savoury toasts as just as delightful to enjoy on their own, fresh from their ovens. They even make it easier for our members by having barePack across all three major delivery platforms! Get yours before they take a well-earned break between the 12th and 18th of February.

Order in barePack on Deliveroo / foodpanda / Grabfood

Self-collect and walk-in at 721 Havelock Rd, S'169645
