We may be very used to going to hipster cafes, why not take a break to enjoy some nostalgia at this old school place. Sipping kopi /tea while enjoying nostalgic atmosphere brings you a trip down memory lane to see coffee shop in the past looks like and feel like. Beside the traditional toast, there are also cakes,donuts and tarts being sold. They may not be fanciful looking, but they definitely one of those that are “old-school”. These cakes, donuts and tarts are being placed in the shelves where you can help yourself to your plate and pay at the counter. It has been years since the last time I eat a sugar coated donuts. I’m amazed with how soft the donut was and what a perfect match the sugar was with the donut. It was most of the most fast selling item in the shelves as in less than an hour stay there; the whole tray of donut was completely wiped out. Patrons even started asking if there is more. Donut ($1.20)
Unlike the usual toast, Chin Mee Chin uses fluffy buns instead of slices of bread. This fluffy buns were toasted, thus the buns were crispy on the outer, soft and fluffy in the inner. Generous serving of kaya were spread on the buns with a slice of butter given to be shared between two halves. One bun (two halves) for $1
The taste of the cream puff surprised me. I was expecting the butter cream puff to be sweet but to my surprise, it was slightly salty. They also offer the chocolate version of the cream puff where a layer of chocolate ganache was apply to the cream puff.
The custard tart was quite decent as the custard was not overly sweet and the tart was crisp, lightly sweet, and buttery.
As for the chocolate muffin, I find it too dry and chocolate ganache was limited. Cream Puff, Chocolate Cream Puff, Custard Tart, Chocolate Muffin ($1 each)
Really love the coffee as it was thick and the natural fragrant of milk from the condensed milk further value-add the taste, making it really smooth and addictive. Chin Mee Chin Confectionery may not be the best place to visit for its cakes and tart, but I believe the high quality thick coffee and soft, fluffy kaya butter buns worth definitely satisfied you. What’s more, a nostalgias environment for a walk downs the memory lane.
