Am a big fan of the tausarpiah ($8 for 10 pieces) here! A fresh batch from the oven was available, and they were so warm and flaky and delicious. The sweet TSP was pleasantly sweet, with a green bean paste that wasn’t grainy. The salty one was also great!

The green bean cake ($2.50) is a childhood favourite, and while the sachima ($3) is not as crisp as I would like it, it still makes for a pretty satisfying snack.

Tan Hock Seng, the 80 year old bakery that serves freshly baked beh teh saw or water chestnut biscuits, announced late last year that they were closing down in end February as they had no successors to the labour intensive trade.

Squatting in Raffles Place meant that I was just mere 10 minutes away but there was often a long queue there for their beh teh saw and Tau sa piahs (sweet bean biscuits). They were best fresh out of the oven with a crispy and flaky skin and a warm sweet sesame malt sugar filling.

I was in the queue at least thrice (kiasu mah don't eat next time no more liao) but am glad to announce that the bakery has extended their lease by a year and will continue for another year!

Tan Hock Seng is an old Hokkien confectionery. It is esteemed for its signature beh teh soh (马啼酥).

There was no queue when I reached. Managed to get my hands on a bag of fresh oven-baked; they were still warm when I bought them!

The beh teh soh has a flaky pastry with a sweet and salty filling. It is great that the pastry is fragrant and the filling is not overly sweet.

$4 for a pack of 5

The pastry should keep well for a week.
