Maybe you are not aware but Penang has another new shop selling nice and oven fresh pastries to keep your mouth nibbling at all time. Originated from Teluk Intan, this shop provides one of the best egg tarts and puffs around Penang. The business started as early as 1975 in a small bungalow in Teluk Intan. By 1979, they started using trishaw to sell the delicacies in trays. That’s the reason you can see the trishaw as part of their logo. What made the pastry so irresistible is that they are handmade until today and the recipes are of the original for the past 30 years. Even the fillings for the pastries are of selected choice pieces of meat and ingredients.

The pastries come in different sizes. Some of them are bite sizes and are great for parties and office meetings. If you plan to have functions or intend to make them as gifts, do try to call up and make your orders. The oven fresh pastries get snatched up real fast. Here are some of the pastries which you can get from the shop.

To find the shop is rather easy as there is a big signboard in front that shows an elderly lady on a trishaw. If you are coming from Komtar into Jalan Burmah, just drive further up until you reach a traffic light in front of Telekom. The shop is just after Lorong Madras on your left. Chew Thean Yeang Aquarium is just diagonally opposite this shop.

    never realise the existence of this confectionery.

    the mini savoury pies got my attention, the egg tarts look not so flaky, or are they?
