  • 10:30 AM Visit a traditional pastry shop.
    Summary
    We will stop by a traditional pastry shop known for their fresh daily made "Heong Peng", which literally means “fragrant pastries”. These pastries, which resemble slightly flattened balls, contain a sweet sticky filling made from malt and shallots, which is covered by a flaky, baked crust and garnished with sesame seeds on the surface.

    This is probably one of the last remaining bakeries that holds onto its roots of hand-making the pastries and using coconut husks to heat up the oven. Those who possess sharp taste buds and appreciate the minor details will surely tell the difference as they do taste significantly better. You'll get that faint smell of coconut which is lacking in those baked in modern electric ovens. With its very limited supply per day, it depends on your luck if you will be able to grab a pack home!
