Teochew Handmade Pau sells all kinds of traditional buns which are small in size but yet delightful. The char siew pau is fragrant and contains minced and juicy and tasty char siew. The siew mai is also delicious and meaty. Phone orders at least 1 day in advance.
The stall specialised in teochew pau. The queue is quite long, and most people has huge orders. For the one standing in front of me, ordered 12 lotus pau and 12 cha siew pau.
Since already wasted so much time queuing up, I end up ordering a piece of every items on the menu for takeaway. Prawn dumpling and cha siew rice is not available. Prices ranges from $0.60 for a pau to $1.20 for a big pau. The pau is very small which be easily finisihed in a couple of mouthfuls.
I like the pau as the skin is very thin, especially the Kou Rou pau which is stuffed with pulled pork. It tastes very juicy and flavourful.
The Siew Mai tastes a bit too oily to me.
The Pau is really nice. But the small char siew pau about the size of fifty cents coin is also $0.50 a piece. The Kong Bak Pau is also very nice. But beware for those who are weight conscious, there is a nice layer of fat between the small slice of meat.
These paus are very ideal for meetings and family gatherings. They are of bite-sizes suitable for children as well as old folks. Of the selections, my family and friends prefer the kong bak pau. The braised meat is succulent and tender. The thin layer of fat is just nice. The char siew pau is the next favorite. But some might find the filling too thick in proportion to the dough. The size of the pau seems to have shrunk though. If you are placing big orders, it will be best to call in advance. They will get pack ready for your collection. This will reduce your waiting time. Enjoy!
