New Online Bakery’s Thai-Style Grilled Buns So Popular They Sold Out Before Its Launch
The Bun Club is now looking for a hawker stall to sell its bakes, which are a gourmet take on the popular Yaowarat buns.
Even before its official launch on December 15, The Bun Club, an online-based store peddling Thai-style grilled buns, has been consistently sold out. Pre-orders of its custard-filled rolls were available from Dec 5. Around 600 buns were sold each week, the rolls are inspired by the famed breads from street food stall Yaowarat Toasted Buns in Bangkok’s Chinatown (Yaowarat).

“Self-pickups and deliveries are only done on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. We make everything from scratch, so the other days are spent baking bread and making our custard fillings. The buns are grilled and fillings added just before pick-up. We wouldn’t be able to cope if we sold our buns daily,” owner Wong Wee Man, 23, tells 8days.sg.
