The Original Vadai
The Original Vadai has its roots in Geylang Serai’s Ramadan Bazaar from more than 30 years ago. A family-owned business started by Mdm Jumana Rani, the business is now run by her son, Mr Suriyah, who has expanded the store further. They hand down their recipes from generation to generation, preserving the taste of local heritage cuisine.

Run by Genevieve Lee, runner-up of the first season of MasterChef Singapore, Sourbombe found success from its online business and is set to open its second outlet in Jewel in August.

It is an innovative mashup of sourdough and Italian Bomboloni (“Bomb”-shaped doughnuts stuffed with pastry cream) with an artisanal twist. Gourmet flavours include Kahlúa Coffee Pistachio ($5.60), Lavender Lime Mascarpone ($4.80) and Basque Burnt Cheesecake ($5.60). A signature box of nine goes for $44.
