Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery stands apart from the usual heartland bakeries and western-inspired bakeries by its use of Japanese ingredients. In fact, the baking flour has been directly imported from Japan. Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery is owned by RE & S Enterprises, which also owns well-known brands like Ichiban Boshi, Kuishin-Bo and Fiesta.

Catering to a specific niche, Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery is well designed and decorated. It's probably one of the best looking bakeries I've seen (Note the overhanging lamp which looks like a green pumpkin). As part of a Japanese food street, you have the option of dining here, although take-away is still preferred by most. Note however, that the actual bakery itself doesn't have seating, so you'll have to go to the partner cafe nearby.

Nothing much can be said for service, as Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery is self-service, except for payments at the cashier.

Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery uses primarily Japanese flavours in its bread, cakes and pastries. The most common flavour is green tea, which is infused into the dough, giving it a distinctive green colour. Other japanese flavours used include yuzu and sakura (cherry blossom). Their bread has a springy, chewy texture, which I like.

Green Pumpkin Japanese Bakery has several types of signature buns, including the traditional Japanese anpan and melonpan.
