Once located at Serene Centre in Bukit Timah, Woodlands Sourdough recently set up their new home at Chinatown. Its owners - husband and wife pair Nur and Chalith - took some time off to travel a few years ago but that didn't stop them from improving their craft. As part of their adventures, they discovered bakeries around the world (Norway, Poland, Turkey, Germany and more!) and made bread alongside other bakers too. Go on their Instagram profile to see more!
The star of Woodlands Sourdough is, of course, their sourdough bread! Unlike normal bread, sourdough does not use commercial yeast to rise but instead, it's made in a long fermentation process (usually 6-8 hours) using flour, water and a "sourdough starter". It's not easy to create the perfect starter but Woodlands Sourdough has managed to perfect their recipe by adding whole wheat flour.
The bakery's sourdough is known to have a good crisp on the outside and is soft and fluffy on the inside. It's no wonder that Woodlands Sourdough's customers keep coming back for more! Not to mention that sourdough is becoming popular in recent years as it's healthier than normal bread - its natural fermentation process makes it easier to digest. So, this is definitely the place for you to try it if you haven't!
But even if sourdough is completely new to you, don't worry! Woodlands Sourdough also has a great variety of other yummy bakes which are sure to satisfy your bread and pastry cravings. What's great about Woodlands Sourdough is that they don't have a fixed menu so you can expect to be surprised every day. Currently, you can head over to their Instagram stories to check out what they have as they will update their followers daily.

If you're in the mood for something chewy and crunchy instead, their cookies are exceptionally good!
