Introduction
The stall serves Teochew style pau at Toa Payoh West Market & Food Court. Teochew Handmade Pau was started in 1993 by Mr. Yeoh Eu Tiew. The philosophy of the store is to make food for enjoyment and not to fill up the tummy. The Kou Rou paus are very popular and are usually sold out by 12pm. continue reading

There is a long queue of people at this stall when I reach the place. And most have huge orders. For example the guy in front has ordered 12 lotus pasta pau and 12 steamed meat pau. With such long queue, there is only 2 staffs serving the customers and another one busy making the pau at the back.Stewed pork / Bian pau 扁包 ($0.60)It is the first I have a stewed pau that is so small. Can nicely fit into the mouth. The pork is shredded into pulled pork form, very tender and flavourful but I feel it is a bit dry.Roasted pork / Char Siew pau 叉烧包 ($0.60)Unlike the usual red coloured char siew, here it looks a natural brown and in a quite finely chopped texture. Steamed meat (small) / Xiao Rou pau 小肉包 ($0.60)Steamed meat (big) / Da Rou pau 大肉包 ($1.20)The meat filling tastes quite lean. A bit disappointed as there is no egg in the big steamed pau.Chicken meat / Ji Rou pau 鸡肉包 ($1.20)The meat filling is very finely minced, and tastes quite juicy, unlike the usual the fatty filling.Red bean paste / Dou Sha pau 豆沙包 ($0.60)The red bean paste is not too sweet.Longevity (Lotus paste) / Shou Tao 寿桃 ($0.60)Lotus paste / Lian Rong pau ($0.60)Both have lotus paste filling, but must be real good because after grandmother has the lotus paste pau, she also has the Longevity pau, giving some reason that Longevity pau is for old people. Steamed chicken (glutinous) / Luo Mai Kai 糯米鸡 ($1.20)The rice is quite flavourful, topped with the juicy chicken slices.Pork dumpling / Siew Mai 烧卖 ($0.60)This tastes quite average.Overall the pau are delicious and have quite thin skin. Except that the pau are quite small in size, even for the big steamed pau. continue reading

The milky white miniature pau are lovely and cute, with every little pau being bite sized. If you are thinking of buying the pau to fill your hunger, you will probably need quite a number of the little pau to pacify your growling tummy. Teochew Handmade Pau offers various pau with different fillings. We ordered the more popular one which includes the Stewed pork kou rou pau扁包 / 扣肉包, roasted pork char siew pau叉烧包, Lotus paste / Lian Rong pau莲蓉包, Red bean paste / Dou Sha pau豆沙包.What we like about the pau was the thin skin and the fine texture, as well as the fact that it is daily freshly made pau that’s right out from the steamer. The Lotus paste and red bean paste were very fine and smooth, taste wise was above average. However, the roasted pork char siew pau was kind of lacking of the much needed juices and taste, it could have better seasoned and infused more fat from the minced pork. The stewed pork kou rou pau was made from the lean meat and same as the char siew, the kou rou pau was too dry and you can’t taste the fatty belly pork oozing out from the bit which was a pity of the pau. May be it is the intention to prepare the filling in a leaner manner to project a healthier image of the pau. continue reading

If you are not very full after a meal and feel like eating something with a small serving, this is the something that will suit you. The bao is only about 4cm in diameter. You can finish it up in 1 mouth. It cost 60 cents for 1 bao and there have quite a lot of varieties to choose from. Any flavour that you can find in a normal sized bao, you can find them here. Queuing can be rather long at times as some customers order a few boxes at a go. So be prepared to wait…. continue reading

This handmade dimsum stall at Toa Payoh Food Centre always had a long queue during their opening times.Since it was lunch time, I had ordered Fan Choi and Siew Mai instead of Buns as they are more stomach filling.The Fan Choi was good. The rice was very moist with char siew sauce. The Char Siew was sweet and slightly fatty taste. There was also a quarter egg but I hope they put more.The Siew Mai was very fatty. It had many minced fatty pork. The taste of the meat was very well marinated and seasoned. continue reading

There is always a queue in the morning and hence we decided to give it a try. We ordered the fan choy, kou rou bao and siew mai to share. The fan choy is flavourful but the serving is rather small. The siew mai is juicy and flavourful and i think siew mai lovers will like it. The kou rou bao is my favourite. It is very tiny though but the pork is fragrant and goes well with the soft bun. I will definitely patronise this stall again! continue reading
