The first time I came across the term ‘kefir’ was when the hubby’s colleague bought us some bak kwa scones from Miss Kefir. Initially I thought that was just a name, as in a shop name, but I realised later that kefir is actually a yogurt-like cultured drink that’s popular in Eastern and Northern Europe. It is made by fermenting cow, goat or sheep milk with kefir grains and is a trending superfood that has many health benefits. Click here if you want to know more about kefir.
Miss Kefir is located inside Far East Square, Water Gate and is just a 2-minute walk away from Telok Ayer MRT Station (Downtown Line). Once you come out from Exit B of the station, cross Telok Ayer Street to Amoy Hotel. Walk through the hotel and turn right at Mr Teh Tarik. Miss Kefir is on the right hand side, same row as Subway.
Their Bak Kwa Scones (S$2.20/pc or S$13/box of 6) are baked using kefir milk which acts as a raising agent because it contains live active yeasts and lactic acid bacteria. Kefir milk supposedly adds a wonderful aroma and also helps keep the scone fresh for longer.
It’s a pretty darn good scone that’s both sweet and savoury. There are plenty of bak kwa bits in the scone that give a nice textural bite. The scone has a lovely crispy crust on the outside and is moist yet light and fluffy on the inside. Simply delicious. ??
Scone (and bak kwa) lovers, you must try this! 🙂
