Pastry Chef Quits Michelin-Starred Restaurant To Open Japanese HDB Bakery Selling Takoyaki Buns, Durian Puffs
Tasty takoyaki buns, garlic bread & Mao Shan Wang puffs from $7 at Morimori Yogashi.
Mentaiko baguettes, durian-filled charcoal puffs and burnt cheesecake – these are a few of the trendy delights found at Morimori Yogashi, a takeaway bakery at an Everton Park HDB void deck.
From the exterior, the shop looks like a forgettable heartland bakery. It’s so nondescript it blends in with a no-frills fruit stall and sundry shop next door – a far cry from the too-cool-for-school vibes of granola shop Dearborn and other hipster cafes just a block away.
You’d never guess that its owner, Terrian Lim, used to be a fancy pastry chef. In April 2020, the 31-year-old left an enviable job at one-Michelin-starred Japanese-Italian restaurant Terra Tokyo Italian to sell affordable buns, puffs and cakes at his HDB bakery.
