New in town: Rotiboy, KINEX — Nostalgic S$2.50 coffee buns finally come to Singapore

Singaporeans really did love the occasional weekend trip to JB before the pandemic hit us like a truck, my family included. It’s been a while since then, but I remember how my mother and I loved Rotiboy so much that picking up a bag full of coffee buns during each trip was as important to us as bringing along our passports.

If you’ve been hunting high and low for an adequate replica of the pillow-soft, savoury brown ball of goodness but ended up disappointed every time, you’ll be relieved to know that Rotiboy’s nostalgic Coffee Buns (S$2.50) have arrived in Singapore since 13 June 2021, and are available for purchase at KINEX. Aromatic, buttery, and smelling so good you wish it was made into a scented candle, these coffee buns are highly raved about and beloved by Singaporeans of all ages.

If you’re planning to take the trip all the way to the East just to buy bread, make the journey worth your while by picking up a variety of Rotiboy’s signature buns.

You can well start with the Mochaboy (S$3), which is topped with fragrant coffee, almond nibs, and filled with chocolate. Their non-coffee signature buns also include the Cheeseboy (S$3), topped with grated cheddar and filled with cream cheese, and the Buttermilkboy (S$3), a buttery bun that’s sprinkled with vanilla and chocolate chips.

They are currently offering a four for S$11 promotion where you can mix and match four Rotiboy siblings based on what tickles your fancy. Their crowd favourite coffee buns are also available in a Bundle of 5 (S$11.50), making sure there will be enough to go around.

You can get your coffee (bun) fix either via a walk-in purchase, or by placing a preorder on Rotiboy’s site for a next-day pickup to make sure you won’t waste a trip down to KINEX even if they’re sold out.
