Baker Talent is an unassuming shop tucked away in the Serangoon Central heartlands, that is hugely popular for its soft, fluffy, buttery buns, which are freshly baked all day.

As a takeaway stand, Baker Talent doesn't have any seating. But their colouful and bright posters and banners around the store stand out and draw attention, as does their large display case where all the baked goods are displayed. Walk past, and the fragrant buttery aroma from Baker Talent entices you to go over.

Service at Baker Talent is fast, efficient, and business-like. While long queues are a given, they are cleared very quickly by the hard-working staff at Baker Talent. Staff also take pride in producing several quantities of fresh bread daily, and because of high turnover, you are assured of getting a fresh batch of buns.

The menu at Baker Talent is limited, with a range of only 12 different items. But each is decadent, with large amounts of butter and sugar, making each bite so sinful, yet lovely. The bread made at Baker Talent is soft and fluffy, and tears away easily. Unhealthy, but it's a nice treat!


The Butter Boom is the signature bun here, filled with large amounts of melted butter, which goes well with the softness of the bread. The topping of sugar gives it a satisfying crunch.

Love the smooth cream cheese filling of the Lemon Cheese Bun, and the little bit of lemon zest that gives it a nice zing. The Mango Cheese Bun has benn infused with sweet mango flavour, and while it also has that decadent cream cheese filling, it only has a small cube of actual mango fruit studded on top.

Almost similar to the Butter Boom, the only difference with the Custard Bun is the addition of a small amount of creamy custard, which makes it a little sweeter than its counterpart.

I find the White Coffee Bolo Bun to have a rather muted flavour, and while the texture of the bun is great, the topping of coffee isn't as crisp as it should be. Probably the weakest bun I tried here.

The Yam Sands Bun is quite good, filled with a generous portion of sticky, sweet, thick yam taro paste, in a nice purple hue. The knob of butter within has melted to coat the small hollow where the filling sits, turning it a light golden colour. The bun is also soft and chewy, without being too thick. Worth ordering!
