This 24-hour opened handmade pau shop is located inside a coffee shop along Jalan Besar.

It is popular for serving a variety of pau and dim sum.

Decided to have a Giant Ye Zhi Mei pau, it is named as such, as the size of the pau is almost a handful. Just Google search Yi zhi mei/ Amy Yip and u will know what these pau are being compared with.

The white steam bread was firm enough to contain all the "juices" within, yet it was soft enough to eat with a subtle sweetness along with it.

The meat within was just a burst of Umami, it had lup cheong, mushrooms, pork belly, half a steam egg and of course, the minced pork. I would dare say, this is a better pau compared to Nam Kee.

Dim sum I had was nothing special to me. But it wasn't bad. Just tasted normal.


Among all dim sum places along Jalan Besar, this is the only one that open 24 hours daily.

Famous for their bao especially the huge one. I was afraid I couldn’t finish it so just gotten my the big pao for only $1.90. Generous fillings inside that worth having in the morning.

If you know who’s Amy Yip, you will know why this bun is called Ye Zhi Mei Da Bao. The bun is as big as my whole hand. It’s packed full of well marinated meat and a hard boiled egg. Definitely worth the calories!

Set within a nondescript coffeeshop diagonally across from Swee Choon, this is a hidden gem serving handmade dim sum that, according to Burpple Tastemaker Acamas Teo, easily rivals Swee Choon and 126. Go with Burpple Tastemaker Michelle Kayla Tay's suggestion of the Super Big Bao ($3.20). The humongous fluffy bun holds together a generous combination of juicy fillings that include half an egg, mushrooms, Chinese waxed sausage, and chunks of chicken and pork. Pair this with the Century Egg Shrimp Siew Mai ($1.80) and the Tofu Bamboo ($1.70), which sees minced meat and bamboo shoot wrapped within a sheet of beancurd skin. The food selection is pretty minimal so save this spot for a teatime outing. Don't forget to order a stellar cup of kopi or teh while you're here — it's seriously good.
Avg price: $5 per person

Johore Ye Zhi Mei Homemade Pau 新山葉子楣手工包點 For Glorious Handmade Pau (💵S$3.20) that Honours & does Justice to Hong Kong actress Amy Yip (Known for her Spectacular & Disproportionately Humongous Breasts) 😏

Oh good lord, it's Big... & Juicy... & full of Feelings : Pork, Chicken, hardboiled Egg, Mushrooms & Chinese Sausage. 🌶 (Small but Addictive, the Sausage)
Yes stuck in between the Pau is a Chinese Sausage, amidst the Huge Pau with juices flowing/squirting uncontrollably. 😋

ACAMASTIPS💮: Here serves Handmade Dim Sum that's better than places like Swee Choon or 126 Dim Sum (yes coming from me)
Order: Century egg & Shrimp Siew Mai, Tofu Bamboo (💵S$1.70) 🖖🏻


Go big or go home, they said. And big is definitely the way to go here, because big gets you a fat & fluffy bao dripping with juices. There's (half) an egg, mushrooms, Chinese waxed sausage, and chunks of chicken and pork in there. It's a little sweeter than the usual, but that's partly why I like it.

Apart from a variety of handmade baos like char siew, kong bak pau, red bean, etc, there are also interesting variations of dim sum such as the Century Egg Siew Mai ($1.80) in the background. Regular and salted egg versions also available. Tastes pretty decent, but definitely not the highlight here. Save your calories for the super big bao & more Jalan Besar eats instead.
