Hock Lim Food Centre.
Main course. Hokkien version of bak kut teh. 福建肉骨茶。The difference from Teochew style? Colour.
Teabreak. Bread from Barcook Bakery.
This little bakery always receives a perpetual queue.
When a new tray comes out from the oven, all the buns disappear within minutes!
Not in any way Im exaggerating.
Came my turn to order, fresh trays of chocolate + almond, tuna and mix cheese buns were out from the oven. No luck with their infamous [cream & raisin] bun. I guess I would need to wait for at least half an hour or more, looking at the pre-order recipts at the counter.
What’s so fabulous about these buns?
1. Alluring smell
2. Soft skin
These will be sufficed to explain the populaity.
