Teochew Handmade Pau at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 sells all kinds of traditional buns which are known for being on the tiny side and delicious fillings. The stall was started in 1993 by Mr Yeoh Eu Tie at Toa Payoh, and has earned a loyal following since. Queues are long, customers order by the boxes, and therefore expect most of the buns to be sold out by noon.
My preference is for the char siew pau – with skin so thin and fluffy, and fillings juicy and lip-smacking. Other than the size, the other winning formula has to be its delicate and tasty skin.
