Absolutely delicious. The chewy texture was lovable and there's a quite a bit, yet somehow still being soft. Coconut flavour comes through too, and theres a surprising amount of body.

Must try

Really good, eat it at room temp. The bitter one has so much complexity and the milk one has a refined mild sweetness

Royce quality. It's not as impressive after a few days tho, not sure if it's my fault

Not stunning but still delicious. It's a harmonious middle-ground of dark and milk chocolate, without the sweetness of milk choc but also not too bitter like a dark choc. Tho the dark choc flavour still comes through. Crunchy when taken out of the fridge

Bun was fluffy and meat filling was tender. As expected of a massive Pau the ratio of filling to bun was good, and this is almost a full meal in itself

Quite mild filling but somehow very endearing, super soft skin when it's hot and fresh in the morning. Not bad at all

It's alright, nothing spectacular. Beef could have been abit more tender

The waffle was okay, not super crispy but i guess it depends on the person making it. The cold cream cheese pairing tho was pretty good, could be abit more generous tho as it's still abit dry but otherwise the umami comes thru, almost abit like mayo when it's cold

Preorder to skip the queue. Highly recommended cos the queue is long and it's very hot to queue there

The sweet one was lousy, hopefully it's an anomaly cos it's dry and theres an unpleasant flakiness. Theres also a bit of saltiness, and not enough sweetness.

The salty one wasnt so much salty, as less sweet. However this was much better baked, with a nice crispy crust that's quite different from your normal tau sar piah. The filling was complex and unique too for both, just much better for the salty one. It's more of a very smooth paste than a powdery filling that people are more used to. Seems like it's very normal that people like the salty one more, but I'm pretty sure the pastry is supposed to the same standard normally

Overall is it overhyped? Yeah if you're queueing, otherwise it's pretty acceptable. Best in Singapore is abit of a stretch as usual, for somethinh that's so different from the norm. But for this price it's hard to find something that's definitively a lot better I guess. House of tau sar piah had a powdery kind of filling which wowed me while this didn't as much so there's that(maybe it's the expectations though)

Pay directly at the tea egg stand, cash only

One of the decent ones, you can tell the broth peentrated into the white. The centre is overcooked though, making it dry. They leave it boiling at too high a temperature, that's why. It's also too hot to immediately eat

Again the filling of Coconut is pretty well done, there's butter mixed in I believe to bring out the aroma of coconut more. However the bread was average
