How to pass up the opportunity to buy Hiap Joo’s famed banana cake even if I love their buns? Banana cakes are usually out of the oven early, but we were there on a Monday - the only day their banana cakes come out at 12 noon. Note that they don’t accept any pre-orders unless you order more than 20 boxes. When we joined the queue at 11.45, there were already 15 people ahead of us and we missed the first batch of cakes that came out of the oven. Waited another 20 minutes for the second batch at 12.20 and got our hands on these warm, soft, moist and springy banana cakes. Admittedly these don’t have a strong banana taste, but they’re light and super moist. Just skip the small box (5 slices) and buy the large ones with 10 slices!
