Didn’t particularly enjoyed it because it wasn’t sweet enough for me though it was understandable since it’s soya bean tart and not egg tart. 🙃 My personal preference is to have it at room temperature because the tart was softer as compared to having it chilled. Any of y’all tried this before?

Finally got to try these elusive egg tarts that seems to get sold out pretty fast! felt it’s overhyped because given the price point ($2.30), I could possibly get better egg tarts elsewhere. Personally prefer the cookie crust over the pastry crust as the latter spots a limp crust even after heating it up. Cookie crust has a better bite, but there was nothing much to shout about. Can consider giving it a miss if you’ve got no time to queue ☹️

Always a fan of the kuehs here! Ondeh ondeh was gobbled up in no time and decided to keep some of the tapioca kueh in the fridge for second round only for them to turn sour the next day 😱 please finish all your kuehs in one setting people! Those pesky desiccated coconut are hard to store 🥺


These elusive Orh Nee Tarts and Cheese Tarts from June Bakery are pretty hard to come by, and for good reason. The buttery crust crumbled with every bite, and seemingly melted in the mouth. The luscious yam paste, with its subtly sweet flavour, was a nice complement to the savoury buttery crust and both flavours melded together beautifully. Not a fan of ginkgo nuts, I dug them all out and left it aside and finished this pastry 5 mouths in. The Cheese Tarts was loved by my brother, with me preferring the Orh Nee Tart. Cheese filling was a little gao for me, and this was more savoury than it was sweet and I like my pastries sweet. Still a decent cheese tart nonetheless!


Yuzu Meringue - Fresh and light, this cake was given a yuzu twist before being enrobed in a beautiful golden brown, toasted meringue. The citrusy zest was prominent with every bite, with the sweet, marshmallow texture of the meringue perfectly complementing it to counter that tartness.⁣

Yuzu Cheesecake - textbook perfect with the right amount of yuzu zest! I preferred the meringue variation over this.

Have long wanted to give this Orh Nee cake a try and am glad I finally did. Was surprised to find bite sized chunks of yam nestled within the lusciously smooth, velvety puree layered in between the cakes, offering some sort of textural variation from the soft, vanilla sponge. Crowned with a generous amount of chantilly cream and crunchy white chocolate pearls, it's amazing how they managed to ace the ratio of each element to make sure they all come together to form such a delicate cake. Definitely worth the hype!⁣


Eating old school pastries like these always brings about a sense of nostalgia. These tau sar piah are soft and flakey, but somehow manage to maintain firm and in shape to hold the generous fillings within. I always prefer the sweet fillings over the salty ones, how about you?

Their tart is great for all occasions, especially for afternoon tea! I lux it up a little by adding a scoop of raspberry ripple ice cream which I got from the ice cream uncle downstairs #supportlocal Raspberry-ception ✨ absolutely adore the raspberry fragrance off every bite, and the saltiness from the crust to balance it off.

Always wanted to give them a try, but never found myself anywhere near the hood of Tampines, which was why I was glad when my friend told me they were offering same day delivery with limited slots on their IG Stories. Turned on my notifications since then and managed to secure a slot, YAS 💪🏼 ⁣

went a little overboard and got 12 of it in 4 flavours: Nutella, Cream Cheese, Salted Caramel and Chocolate Fudge. Had the Nutella one and felt it was a little dense, not as fluffy as I would like it to be. While the Nutella fillings might not be substantial (as seen in 2nd photo), it was certainly sweet enough since there were sugar dusted all over. The team had clearly put thought into this. Anymore Nutella and it’d be a sugar bomb. Personally prefer the Cream Cheese version more as it was lighter on the palate and had the right balance of sweetness. ✨

These traditional cakes got me reminiscing about my childhood, where my mom always buys them for breakfast. All the different colours always attracted me as a kid, wanting to try all the different creams available. They were light and fluffy, and a delight to munch on. While these weren’t as fragrant as the cakes in my memory, they suffice to bring me some joy amidst these pandemic.

Still thinking about the food at @yunnanssg ! These beancurd pudding with brown sugar were the perfect way to end off the meal. Velvety texture that’s lusciously soft and smooth, it wasn’t overly sweet despite being paired with brown sugar. Since dining in is an option now, I believe I’ll be heading down really soon for the full experience!

Childhood memories were made of these. Guess my love for pastries like such, were largely influenced by my pop. Being the traditional machismo Asian man that he is, he loves tau sar piah, kueh and all things similar and always pairs them with his Kopi-O. As such, I grew up trying all kinds of pastries and listening to his stories on how “they don’t made it the same anymore”, “these are machine made”, “last time the pastries very fragrant one, what’s this nonsense I’m eating now”. Hence, I’m always on the lookout for nice pastries to bring them back and let him relive some childhood memories.⁣

Gin Thye is easily my go to for this, with the pastries soft and flakey, but somehow managing to maintain firm and in shape to hold the generous fillings within. Got it off @shopee_sg @ginthyesg store, with 6 sweet and 6 savoury tau sar piah going at just $10.80. What a steal!⁣

I understand pastry industries like this is a tired trade, slowly losing favours among the younger generation and I can only hope, it won’t die out. Feel free to let me know if you have any good suggestions for tau sar piah! Thank you in advance on behalf of my pop! 🙏🏼
