Fresh-baked breakfast pastries that are meaty, cheesy, and oh-so-filling are the best way to start the day, which is why we are crazy about the salty-side of this famous shop.
Breadtalk is a beloved Singaporean bakery that specialises in sliced breads, cakes, and buns. The chain opened its first branch in Oman in 2008 in Bareeq Al Shatti, expanding to Qurum City Centre, and recently to Oman Avenues Mall. The casual café features a glass case where you can select your own savoury pastries and a bright seating area to enjoy them while watching the bakers at work in the windowed kitchen. Though many know the shop for it’s sweets, the savoury pastries make an amazing meal.
The most distinctive thing on offer at this café is the savoury pastry selection. Buns stuffed with turkey and cheese, peri tuna, chicken parmesan, or topped with sliced chicken sausages are both savoury and slightly sweet. The offerings change daily and throughout the day the pastries are freshly baked and re-stocked. My favourite is the turkey and cheese pastry, which features a sweet dough layered with salty turkey ham, and oozing with mild, white cheese. The unusual sausage creations are also not-to-be-missed.
Have your savoury pastries as your main meal, along with a coffee or juice, then splurge on a sweet treat from the display case, like a lighter-than-air slice of Angel Cake; rich Black Date Cake, or surprisingly heavy, Plain Butter Cake to round out your meal.
Fuel up for the day with two buns for around OMR1.5 and keep an eye out for the seasonal combo offers that include a beverage.
