The first Bengawan Solo Cake Shop was a small neighbourhood corner store on the east coast of Singapore, where cakes, kueh (traditional local confectionery) and other sweet confections were lovingly prepared to perfection in the modest back kitchen of Mrs Anastasia Liew. Named after a famous song that Mrs Liew loved about Solo River (Bengawan being an old Javanese word for river), Bengawan Solo Singapore has grown to become an established Singaporean brand synonymous with premium quality cakes and confectionery.
Now, more than 40 years later, this same homemade quality is maintained as each confection is still prepared in the traditional manner, using only the finest and freshest ingredients with absolutely no artificial preservatives. This passion and commitment to great taste, quality and freshness has made Bengawan Solo Singapore a household brand name locally and a firm favourite with overseas visitors looking for a uniquely Singaporean premium food gift.
Signature items include Pandan Chiffon Cake, called Singapore's National Cake by CNN in 2017, perhaps the widest range of kueh in Singapore including
Lapis Sagu, Ondeh Ondeh, Kueh Salat
, and Asian Specialty Cakes such as
, confectionaries such as Pineapple Tarts, and a wide range of sweet and savoury cookies such as Macadamia Sugee Cookies and Kueh Bangkit (Coconut Cookies).
We aim to establish Bengawan Solo Singapore in the region and the world as a uniquely Singaporean culinary experience and share our passion for lovingly prepared food without compromising on the principles or quality that define Bengawan Solo Singapore.
