The Delicious Messy Buns You Have To Try In Singapore

Dirty bread is one of those overly indulgent food trends that we can’t help but want to get our hands on.

What is it exactly? It’s a bun that’s glazed with chocolate ganache, green tea cream (or any other poison you’d like to pick), then dusted with a thick layer of cocoa powder, matcha powder, icing sugar etc. And if that’s not enough, the inside is filled with cream or chocolate.

But it is called a dirty bread for good reason. You’re bound to dirty your fingers the moment you pick it up, and leave a powdery mess on the plate once you set it back down.

Dirty buns are often very soft and airy – so when you take a bite, the bun folds in on itself and the powdery top tends to press against your nose. So yep, it takes a bit of skill to eat a dirty bun gracefully and mess-free.

We used to wonder why people even bothered with the mess, till we tried them and loved how utterly indulgent they are.

If you haven’t tried one before, you should. But not all are that yummy because some bakeries don’t get the pastry right or the taste becomes to overwhelmingly wrong.

So here, we rounded up the best dirty breads you should try.
