From the Burpple community

Many people familiar with with this name for their famous Tanjong Rhu pau. The second generation of this family from Tanjong Rhu pau have recently setup a smaller and more hipster shop along Jalan Besar serving the same items like Tanjong Rhu pau.

Only a few seats available here so this is much like a takeaway place.

A small cafe that sells only baos, Fan Choy, lo mai kai and siew mai. Food is good, cute place for a quiet lunch 😊👍


From this new establishment that sells Pau and a small variety of dim sum (Fan Choy, Lo Mai Kai and Siew Mai) all made in-house at Jalan Besar which primarily serves the takeaway crowd — dine-in is available, although only a single table meant for four and three counter seats are available. Don’t really fancy the mass-produced Lo Mai Kai that are found elsewhere, but the ones here are absolutely tasty — the chicken being meaty and tender without being overly sweet, whilst the glutinous rice was sticky but not too dense; sufficiently moist and absolutely flavourful. Wouldn’t mind having this again!


The coffee shop houses Tanjong Rhu Pau, known for its mini-sized Char Siew Buns of slightly-sweet skin and moist pork fillings.

Chin Sin Huan 振新园 along Jalan Besar, however, is a local café concept by the second generation of the family.

Loved its Fan Choy bit.ly/chinsinhuan

Char siew pau, the size of a golf ball or perhaps just a tad bigger.
Totally made by hand, painstakingly. @chinsinhuan is a sister outlet of Tanjong Rhu pau. Manned by the son and daughter of the elderly owner of Tanjong Rhu pau. It hopes to keep the old school tradition alive by continuing to literally hand craft the paus (buns). I could see the elderly owner in the kitchen, still busy doing what he has been doing for the last few decades.
This outlet is named after the coffeeshop, also named Chin Sin Huan, owned by the grandfather. The name translates to "Zheng - to brace up, Sin - new ideas, Huan - a land to grow in abundance".
It was an interesting and informative conversation I had with Chloe, the daughter, the next generation of Tanjong Rhu Pau.
