Hip Castella Cake Brand Quolofune From Tokyo Opens Pop-Up Shop In Singapore
Chancing upon Japanese castella cake brand Quolofune at Takashimaya was like bumping into a glamorous, somewhat familiar old friend. There the pop-up shop sat, between two nondescript snack stands, largely ignored by scurrying shoppers. Back when travelling to Japan was the norm before the pandemic, we used to cart these bakes home on the regular. Unlike the majority of Japan’s more famous old-school castella bakeries, Quolofune styles itself as a contemporary cake brand. It was originally established in 2003 in Osaka, and is owned by confectionary brand Nagasakido, founded in 1919 in Nagasaki. However, Quolofune's flagship store is now located in Tokyo, along with several other branches.
