Old Seng Choong’s bak kwa is marinated with a special recipe that includes anchovy fish for an extra savoury kick, so those with severe allergies should take note.

It’s difficult to store large quantities of perishables when you’re living alone, or one half of a childless couple. That’s why the pre-packed bak kwa from Fragrance is a godsend, with their BB Bak Kwa in a petite resealable bag of just 108g ($5.87, U.P. $6.90). There’s also individually-wrapped Vacuum Packed Bak Kwa ($10.03 for 200g, U.P. $11.60) with a longer shelf life.

#6: New Peng Hiang - from $23 for 500g
Now here’s one for adventurous foodies who are fans of funky, unconventional flavours. New Peng Hiang is probably the only bak kwa store in Singapore with Sesame Pork Bakkwa, Coffee Pork Bakkwa, and Red Wine Pork Bakkwa. Beyond those and the usual traditional ones, they also have a Less Sugar & Salt version for the health-conscious, as well as Chicken Bakkwa and Turkey Bakkwa for those who’d like to cater to any guests who can't eat pork.
You can either order off New Peng Hiang’s website or Shopee store. Prices on the former start from $25, while the latter has certain flavours at slightly lower rates, starting from $23. Only the Bacon Bakkwa and MSW Durian Pork Bakkwa are significantly pricier at $40.
#7: The Marmalade Pantry - from $27 for 300g
The Marmalade Pantry won't typically come to mind when one thinks of bak kwa, but the bistro known for yummy bakes has since added Traditional Petite Chicken Bak Kwa to their CNY line-up, joining the likes of Golden Pineapple Tarts, Honey Mustard Roast Crackers, and Almond Cookies. It’s made with premium thigh meat and comes individually wrapped for clean fuss-free storage, packed in a pink and green gift box .
