Pau, bao, pao— it has many names. Pillowy dough with steaming centres of goodness. When bitten into it, you1 immediately really feel a heat hug enveloping your whole physique.

It was solely 7.30am however the espresso store positioned on the Goodyear Courtroom 2 flats was already swarming with prospects, from aged people leisurely sipping on their black coffees to people trying to get a fast chunk earlier than the morning rush.

I squinted even tougher and there it was— proper on the very nook, steamer baskets stacked on high of each other. Gotcha! I make my well beyond the gang. Gingerly I stepped ahead and requested what was on the menu behind the steamer baskets.

Right here, they serve a complete of 13 styles of handmade steamed buns. In keeping with the proprietor, the favored savoury fillings are their char siew and mui choy. In the meantime, prospects with a candy tooth can go for the traditional purple bean, lotus paste and custard. Additionally they serve a kaya pau the place they cook dinner the filling themselves.

I chosen their finest sellers: Char Siew, Mui Choy, Sang Yoke and the Vegetable Pau. He lifted them from the steamer basket and positioned them delicately on a porcelain plate earlier than handing them to me. It was time to feast!

What I attempted at Wai Kwan Espresso Store

My abdomen was already growling and I couldn’t wait to get began. I eagerly peeled off the pores and skin of my Char Siew Pau (RM3.30) — (that is one in all their bestsellers), earlier than gently splitting the pau into halves to get a greater have a look at the insides. The quick sight of the caramelised chunks of pork was already a telltale signal of an incredible char siew pau

I sunk my enamel in and instantly observed the distinction in style and texture than the machine-churned paus. The pores and skin had a pleasant, not overly fluffy texture with a slight chunk and the feel didn’t have the standard machine-made easy look. And one of the best half? The dough is hand-mixed which implies it doesn’t persist with your enamel or the roof of your mouth. I’m happy to report that the char siew was juicy with the proper quantity of sweetness to pair along with your morning cup of espresso.

Char siew pau inhaled, I moved on to my private favorite of the day: Sang Yoke Pau (RM3.30).

I cut up the bun into half and oh boy, simply the sight of the contents had my mouth watering. And the odor of ginger wafting out was merely luscious. The fluffy texture of the pau which intertwined with the tender strips of pork was just too good to be true. When you’re like me and also you don’t benefit from the overpowering style of ginger, fret not. The pork strips had been well-marinated and juicy and I devoured this magnificence simply.

Subsequent on the checklist was the Vegetable Pau (RM2.60). Encased within the smooth fluffy pau had been beneficiant strips of yam bean and carrots. I used to be significantly happy with the quantity of yam bean spilling out of its fluffy casing since I like this tasty, crunchy vegetable. Truthfully, I used to be actually wanting ahead to attempting their vegetable pau, ever since my scrumptious encounter with this flavour at Klang Meals Centre’s handmade vegetable pau

Crunchy and juicy, I might have wolfed down a few this vegetable paus. The one draw back to this tasty breakfast deal with was that the yam bean was reasonably closely doused in pepper— I might style it in each chunk. However in the event you take pleasure in a peppery kick, then you definitely’ll love this!

Final on the porcelain plate was the Mui Choy Pau (RM3). The Mui Choy or preserved mustard greens is braised with pork to current to us a scrumptious filling.

In keeping with the proprietor, the mui choy pau can also be extremely wanted. Moist with a touch of rice wine aroma and blended with chunks of braised pork, the preserved greens add layers of umaminess to the filling.

Whereas wolfing my pau down, I had the pleasure to see the pau’s being made on the spot on a steel desk behind the steamer baskets— actually a visible deal with. The whole lot is made out of scratch right here (together with the dough) by the devoted house owners from 6am. So you’re biting into a particularly contemporary steamed bun. Clients even buy their steamed buns by the dozen, no shock there!

I regretfully found afterward that in addition they promote Nam Yu Pork Pau, the place encased within the bun are thick chunks of pork stomach marinated in a brownish sauce flavoured with nam yue or fermented bean curd. I’m drooling already.

Seems like I’ll be making one other journey to Wai Kwan Espresso Store for extra of their scrumptious paus and I’d reckon you’d do the identical.
