Tiong Bahru Pau & Snacks

August 21, 2006 at 11:15 p08 (Darn Good Food, Singapore)


Tiong Bahru Pau & Snacks… the only dimsum joint at coffee shop location selling at restaurant prices. It is located at the busy junction of Tiong Bahru Road (5 minutes from Keong Saik Road by car) and the narrow side road. The shop has no sitting arrangement, is not near any residential areas and only accessible by vehicular means unless you happen to live upstair of the shop. To get to this shop by car, you have to double park in front of the shop.

The dimsum are hand made at the back of the shop. Due to the roaring business at the shop, the dimsum are usually very fresh and steaming hot. Its pau by far is its most famous offering. It tastes so heavenly, buying Tiong Bahru Pau is the only occasion wifey allow me to commit a traffic offence without kicking up a fuss.


Tiong Bahru Pau allure knows no boundary. Even the rich and famous like this Porsche owner can’t resist the charm of Tiong Bahru Pau. Given its secluded location, impossible access and premium pricing, TBP success is a worthy case study for success in the F&B industry.

If you are in Singapore, why not give Tiong Bahru Pau a try. Any taxi driver will be able to bring you there and if you are adventurous enough you can talk a stroll, about 15 minutes, from the Outram MRT Station.
