Laantaan is an online bakery that had only been around for six months when the pandemic hit. But while some businesses have struggled understandably, Laantaan has gone from strength to strength since they opened themselves up to online ordering.
Everything’s made in the owners’ home kitchen – and delivered by international students impacted by Covid-19. The signature bun flavours are salted duck-egg yolk and spiced black tea, but look out for specials such as Ovaltine, purple yam, and pork floss – plus durian swiss rolls.
The pandemic shut down the restaurants that Laantaan Thai bakery supplied. But social media has not only saved the business - it's introduced a new audience to foi thong, a traditional Thai sweet made from sweetened egg yolk.
