In 1969, Madam Ong began selling bakkwa in Singapore, influenced by the country’s newly founded zeal and optimism. Ms. Ong’s barbecued meat was so delicious that Singaporeans from all walks of life flocked to her restaurant in search of a taste. The brand name was “Fragrance” in Chinese, after the barbecued meat’s natural scent.

The Tan family, the heirs of Madam Ong, has continued to champion Singapore’s indomitable spirit after independence. Every Singaporean’s pride in their gastronomic traditions has helped Fragrance develop into one of the region’s quickest-growing chains and a leader in barbecued meats.

  • Handmade Daily

Customer Testimonial

Moist glistening and tender. Nicely charred edges, perfect sweetness and flavorful. Thicker than KHG and LCG but very tender. Absolutely one of the best. Damn shiok. Vacuum pack is great but the box is a waste of resource.

Do you want to get a little more creative with your bakkwa snacks this Chinese New Year? Old Seng Choong has all-new delights like black truffle or yuzu bakkwa ready for consumption.

Some are made with Brazilian pork and a combination of summer black truffle paste and white truffle oil, while some is an exquisite treat with zest and yuzu juice. Of course, you may also get the traditional version if that’s what you prefer.

Key Differentiators

Customer Testimonial

Great tasting local flavoured cookies! I tried the Goreng Pisang which was quite average and requires more banana taste. The Cereal Prawn flavour was soooo GOOD, packed full with cereal flavour and you can also taste the prawn. Super addictive and legit to the name of the cookie!

Will be back to try the Laksa, Satay and BKT flavour! Also a great gift idea for friends!

Although not the most popular dish in Singapore, this eatery does not immediately spring to mind when you think about bakkwa. Try its well-known petite chicken iteration before you dismiss it.

Each slice is individually vacuum-packed for freshness, and there are no additives or flavoring in the recipe.

Key Differentiators

  • Deliver the best of all its favorites
  • Brilliant new menu
  • Growing list of desserts

If you’re looking for something old-fashioned, try one of these establishments. This tiny little old-school shop in Ang Mo Kio may not be the first thing that comes to mind when a craving strikes.

However, it’s on par with the competition. If you’re ordering ahead of time, note that it tends to sell out fast!
