Hiap Joo seems to be making the rounds lately in SG. Using the simplest of ingredients, this golden brown banana bread is light and soft, incredibly moist and flavourful, making it perfect for breakfast or simply an afternoon snack. The clean cut banana cakes were really fragrant, no thanks to the hole-in-the-wall wood fired oven used by the shop. Priced affordably, it's no wonder there's so much hype over it.

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!

While Hiap Joo is known for their banana cake, I think the buns are the real star of the show. That’s what the locals say too - Hiap Joo actually started making buns but added on banana cake to their repertoire to keep up with demand.

Snatched up a few buns while they were fresh out of the oven and these traditional buns were so delightfully soft with a slightly charred crust. The otah filling was delicious, a little on the hot side for those who aren’t used to spicy food, leaving a tingling feeling in your mouth after. But it’s nothing a few more mouthfuls of their other delicious buns can’t cure!

Hiap Joo Banana Cake (~$1.50 sgd) was freshly made and piping hot when I first got it 🍌 Banana cake was soft, moist and not too crumbly! One thing that I really liked was that the cake wasn’t too oily and buttery, but moist enough to not get tough to eat!
