Katong Sin Chew Cake Shop
I have just found the softest, fluffiest, most delicious 鸡蛋糕 or egg cupcakes! Gawd, I never knew these could be so tasty. Never liked these much in the past, no thanks to lesser versions. These are so eggy in fragrance and flavour. Vanilla and a hint of saltiness make it just right. And I love how it's so light, airy and moist.
Discovered these quite by chance in a traditional bakery I was walking past yesterday. You don't see too many of these around these days. Austere aluminium display cases, cheap plastic trays and covers, mirrored shelves with flourescent lighting. Keeping costs low, so they don't pass them on to customers.
Interestingly, this bakery doesn't have any labels or prices listed for its products. You can either ask or take a gamble at the cakes, breads and buns (some fillings looks obvious, but not all). The egg cupcakes are about 60 cents each, I think.
They had loaves coming fresh out of the oven, and I grabbed one, hoping to make my own kaya toast at home. The loaf turned out to be corn bread (about $1.80). These are so soft, you have to handle them with great care, lest you end up with mushed up bread. Thick slices very nice when lightly toasted.
This shop looks like it's been around for some time. There is a certain buzz about the shop, which drew me to it in the first place. Stuff keeps getting replenished, so that's a good sign. I'm coming back to try some of the other goodies.
