I always had the impression that tau sar piah is an “old people food”, and I’ve never showed much interest in it. Little did I know how much I’ve been missing out when I first took a bite off Loong Fatt’s tau sar piah.

If you’re there early, you’d probably be one of the lucky ones that could avoid the long queue during lunch hour. My colleague and I had to wait almost half an hour to get these famous tau sar piahs. There are 2 flavours, sweet and salty and I initially wanted to get 1 each. After waiting for such a long time, I decided to get a box of 6 to make my wait worthwhile.

That was probably one of the best decision I’ve made in my life, no kidding. I make terrible decisions sometimes. The tau sar piah were out of the oven HOT, its buttery and flaky crust crumbled in my mouth while the sweet and saltiness of the bean paste brought everything together. I still can’t decide which flavor I prefer.

I highly recommend Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah to anyone and everyone!

Best Tau Sar Pia In Singapore
Overall Score 
 
4.5
Loong Fatt Eating House and Confectionary is home to the best tau sar piah in Singapore. This is not an overstatement.

With your first bite, the buttery and flaky tau sar piah crumbles in your mouth and is immediately followed by the taste of sweet lotus paste. Compare this to the typical tau sar piahs, which are either too dry or too oily.

Each lovely piece of goodness costs a mere 70 cents. It could have been twice the price, and I’d still willingly pay for it.

Not exactly a huge fan of pastries similar to tau sar piah, but the ones at Loong Fatt made me develop a strong liking towards it. For less than a dollar you can get tau sar piah with a crispy, buttery layer of skin on the outside and sweet red bean paste on the inside. The first time I tried it I couldn't decide whether to get the sweet or salty one so I decided to get both, and since then I've still not made up my mind as to which one I prefer and I've definitely become a fan.

So thankful to have found this treasure at Balestier Road! Also, do go early as they close at around 430PM~530PM? If you're passing by Baslestier Road, Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah is worth a drop by.

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!

While the shop sells a variety of foods, the most notable would be the tau sar pia, which is basically red bean filled baked pastry that comes in sweet or salty variants of filling. The aroma of the magical pastry can be smelled a few shops before reaching loong fatt, and when you arrive at the entrance, the grand whiff of the delectable tau sar pia hits you.

I like both the sweet and salty variants, as the pastry is not too oily but nice and smooth, which blends with the moist fillings which is tasty yet not so rich or overpowering that it cuts off the taste of the pastry.

The shop has a nostalgic feel of the old bakeries, kind of like a walk through childhood. The excellent pastries come at a cheap price, so enjoy without worrying about burning a hole in your pocket.

I think I might be biased when it comes to Loong Fatt Tau Sar Piah. For all of your readers who are not exactly sure what tau sar piah is, it is essentially a flaky biscuit or pastry filled with bean paste; a cousin of the traditional wife cake.

Currently, the only store I know near my vicinity which sells to-die-for tau sar piah is the Loong Fatt outlet located along Balestier Road. Growing up, I have lived for this sweet snack and constantly crave for the sinful indulgence of this local delicacy. Despite the appearance of cupcakes, ice-cream parlors and low-fat yoghurt for competition, tau sar piah remains nostalgic of one's childhood snack and for less than a dollar per piece, tau sar piah is a food tradition that should not be forgotten!

The sweet and savory flavors are two of the more original concepts for this Chinese pastry. It is easy to spot the difference between the two- the sweet filling tau sar piah is laden with white sesame seeds atop the pastry shell, whereas the salty filling is contained within a smooth, glazed texture of a crust. Both are without a doubt delicious, but my hands-down favorite has got to be the sweet filling tau sar piah.
