In the face of a serial pandemic and even more serial precautions, our favourite Bakkwa stores have moved online in a bid to circumvent the whole ‘crowding’ prospect – which has more or less become a normality during this time of the year.

Now, that would’ve been a disaster amidst such tumultuous times.

And yet, the question begets:

Which household brand is actually retailing online, and which is not?

Well, it seems that we have our answers

And what better way to present them than the age-old 11 Facts sequence?

11 Places to Buy Bak Kwa Online Coz Queuing for Bak Kwa is Not Recommended in 2021

1. Bee Cheng Hiang

With 370 outlets in 11 countries and 58 in Singapore, Bee Cheng Hiang is one of the most renowned bakkwa brands (alongside Fragrance) on local shores.

It purportedly uses 100% natural ingredients and Christopher Lee loves it.

Apart from the conventional bakkwa flavours, the Singaporean company also serves the delicious Gourmet Fusion Bak Kwa – a mixture of bacon and minced pork.

Delivery fee: $8, free for orders above $200

2. Lim Chee Guan

You may have read news of the brand’s website crashing due to overwhelming popularity, but it’s still a mandatory option on this list.

Opened in 1938, the family-run business owns four local outlets, with its flagship store known to entice overnight-long queues every Chinese New Year.

Due to the outbreak, however, that prospect would naturally be a huge no-no this year, and so sales were diverted online with deliveries scheduled between 20 Jan and 9 Feb 2021.

Unfortunately, it appears that the brand had heavily underestimated its own popularity, as its website crashed on 6 Jan, and had stayed down for days.

It was only recently that the website managed to address the issue, though some things have been changed. For example, there will be a set purchase limit of 20kg of bak kwa per customer.

Hopefully, the website will be able to handle the massive number of impending orders when the time inevitably comes.

Delivery fee: $15 for orders below 8kg, $8 for orders between 8kg to 15kg, free for 15kg and above

3. Fragrance

With over 30 stores across the nation, Fragrance has long been competing with Bee Cheng Hiang for Singapore’s (bakkwa-related) affections, and it appears that their rivalry is set to continue online.

This 2021, enjoy their herbal marinated bakkwa through convenient doorstep delivery.
