Macedonian Pilot Opens Yugoslavian Bakery With His Wife, Offers Unique European Pastries

A bakery serving European pastries is uncommon in Singapore. Even rarer, one that’s named Yugoslavian Bakery, after a country that no longer exists (but we will get to that in a bit). It’s opened by Macedonian husband-and-wife Mitre Krajoski, 53, and Katerina Krajoski, 39, who wanted to introduce their homeland’s traditional food to the local crowd.

The couple - who have two kids - started with a cosy cafe at Katong V mall last July, and expanded with a second outlet at Citylink Mall in April this year. “This is not the usual commercial bakery. We follow the home recipes which take longer to make, but it’s better,” Mitre tells 8days.sg. “There are sweets which are usually made when there’s a celebration.”

This includes burek, a pastry with origins dating back to the Ottoman Empire. It comes either as a pie or doughy swirl, stuffed with a sweet or savoury filling. There’s also bajadera, a Croatian dark chocolate praline layered with hazelnuts.
