Restaurant Home: Big, Fluffy, Ugly Paos like those in Johor!
Updated 20 Feb 2021 We are glad to report that Sandra is continuing the legacy of her late husband after his unexpected passing late last year. Restaurant Home is now a dedicated Bao shop and you can walk in during their opening hours to pick up your fluffy, ugly baos! Their Baos are now nicely […]
Have you ever tasted a siew mai or har gow that is so good that it just blows all the others out of the steaming basket? I haven’t. In my experience, there is good siew mai and there is bad siew mai. There is good and very good siew mai, but I have never, ever […]
I have been on the lookout for the old grandma style pau ever since I ate the pau at Wee Hoi in JB with Johor Kaki. So far, the closest one that I have found were the ones at Joo Huat Pau at Circuit Road Food Centre. Then, some of our readers alerted me to […]
I know for a fact that there are a lot of people who are going to be very excited about this post! When I posted the photo of the creamy “liu sar” spilling out of the pau on facebook, it caused quite a stir in our facebook community! But I am sure there are others […]
One of my fondest food memories as a kid is a particular Pau that my dad used to buy from Toa Payoh Lor 5. It was from a little pau stall run by an elderly Hainanese couple. My dad always called it “Hainang” sic pau. I am not sure if the stall actually had a […]
I have always enjoyed our local Da Pau much more than the Hong Kong version that you eat at Dim Sum restaurants. I like it when you tear off the piece of paper and the bottom comes off, releasing the steam and aroma of the juicy pork within. I like it even more when you […]
I have been on a bit of a pau craze lately. It all started with me trying to make the perfect pau skin at home. I had tried it a few times before, but without much success. Those of you who have tried it before at home might empathize with me. My pau skin always […]
It might be debatable as to whether Teck Kee is the oldest Pau stall in Singapore, but I would say that they are probably the most well known brand. Who here doesn’t recognize the iconic logo that is printed on the piece of paper at the bottom of each pau? I must have peeled it […]
Tiong Bahru Pau: Not as great as it used to be, but still good!
Everyone knows Tiong Bahru Pau right? I guess it is about time to list them on the blog since it is one of the most famous Paus around. When I was a kid, two of the most popular Paus were Tiong Bahru Pau and Teck Kee Pau. It was because of these two stalls that […]
KL Eats: Restoran Key Hiong – Lo Mai Kai you will drool over
Lo Mai Kai The best Lo Mai Kai I have ever eaten in my life was in Petaling Jaya. That was 7 years ago when I visited my cousin in KL. It was one of those moments of epiphany which one never forgets. It is too bad that I wasn’t a blogger then, so I […]
This stall is relocating.Kong Bak Pau $1.20 Back in 2006, I met Mr and Mrs Cheng and remarked how nice it would be to have those gigantic paus that you often see along the highway while driving in Malaysia. They took on the idea and it is good to know that four years on, the […]
The Teochews are famous for many things. Char Kway Teow, Chai Tau Kway, Teochew Porridge, Mee Pok Tar etc etc, but not for Pau. This is so unusual that the stall aptly named themselves Teochew Handmade Pau because, basically, no one else does! The other stall in a similar kind of situation is the famous […]
