And not forgetting to drop by Hiap Joo Bakery for some old school buns. This traditional bread shop is more than 80 years old but the bread is still baked in wood fire oven as in 1930s. Curry Potatoes bun, otah buns, cheese buns, kaya buns, red bean buns, coconut buns, banana cake and plain bread are available here. The fresh loaves and bread are only available after 2.30 pm and they only start baking from 12.30 pm.
My personal favourite is the otah buns, followed by the ikan billis buns, and i didn't like the curry potatoes buns. I heard most of the buns would be sold out by 3pm, so please be early if you want to drop by. And, never come on Sunday which is their off day.
