Decided to get a @taicheongsg char siew polo bun ($2.80) as a meal today because everywhere had ridiculously long queuesss (and not like say the food is fantastic I really wanted to get). Wandered around the novena malls for a while before I decided why not try the savoury food from tai Cheong! Heng there wasn’t any long queue and the queue only formed after I ordered. Was having a hard time deciding between the chicken pie ($3) or the char siew polo bun and went for the latter instead because cheaper haha. Was wondering why the pie smaller but more expensive. But now I realised why because polo bun may look big but it is airy hollow inside hahaha!

The polo bun was packed nicely in a box and it was recommended for same day consumption or to heat up at 160 degrees for 10 mins the next day. But since the bun wasn’t hot already, I decided to just warm it up for around 4-5mins.

Either I was famished or too stressed with work, but this charsiew polo bun tasted heavenly. Especially love the buttery polo crust! Although charsiew was slightly fatty cut.

Queues at Tai Cheong have been long since circuit breaker ended! I love the egg tarts with their buttery, fragrant crusts and silky smooth, soft egg custard fillings.

I usually eat the egg tarts right after buying them when they're warm. This was my first time buying a box to eat over a few days. I would suggest not eating them at room temperature – they're still nice, but the crust gets a slightly soggy feel. Instead, toast the egg tart for about 2-3 min. The crust firms up and the whole egg tart regains its beautiful fragrance.

Taste: Egg tarts. Simply love the crust. Baked to perfection!

Atmosphere: Crowded during lunch time.

Service: Staff was very friendly and prompt to response.

Price: ~$2 per piece

Where to find this place: Square 2

I love both flavours just as much and I always buy both to chomp as a snack.

This freshly baked Tai Cheong egg tart is of no stranger to me & you might have known by now that it is my FAVOURITE eggtart! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Especially love the buttery & crumbly crust with an addictive crisp especially the golden brown top/sides! 😍😍😍 Not forgetting the smooth yet firm custard that has just the right amount of sweetness. Can't hide the strong eggy aroma at all. ✔
This is how this sweet treat stole my heart. ❤ The vibrant yellow instantly cheers you up, doesnt it! It's a dangerous & deadly attraction.

This has a satisfactory coconut taste and crunch, but I found it too sweet and too fluorescently yellow. The slightly hard crust pairs better with the smooth custard of the egg tart than with the firm cake-like crumbly texture of this coconut tart.
