Tucked away in a corner on Balestier Rd, this place is a hidden treasure. At the entrance, you will be greeted with the various newspaper clippings about their tau sar piahs. Stepping in, you will be hit with a wave of nostalgia as the place is just like the olden day bakeries, with no high-tech machinery in sight.

Their prices remain almost as cheap as when they started out, each pastry is only 60 cents! They also sell butter cakes and cream puffs.

I was deliberating for some time between the salty and sweet tau sar piah, so of course the next course of action would be... To buy both! No regrets at all. They came piping hot in a plastic bag. The pastry is one of the best that I've had, buttery but not too oily, slightly crumbly. The red bean filling is generous, and oh so good.

I can't decide which one I like more, the sweet or salty. The salty one is the perfect mix, the salt is a good counter to the sweetness of the red bean, while the sweet one is just a delight to eat.

Everyone should definitely make a trip down and try their tau sar piahs!
