Old is Gold....Traditionally Baked Bread Loaves.
In this rundown dark messy shop,there is pure gold mine.
A bite of this bread,brought back flashes of memories of my childhood days.Flashes of beautiful,carefree childhood days are so fresh, hard to forget.Simple things like,running after a bread selling van,can be so joyful.
Yes,the bread here are done the very old school way.And this is more to how,the bread tasted in my yesteryear.And something which I have been,longing to have for a long long time.
Of course,we can get something familiar to this type of breads,at most coffee shop's kaya toast and some bakery like around Whampoa which I have all ready tried before.
But the taste,it does matters,it might be a mild difference.But how much a small little difference can do to a bland,plain tasting bread.The bread here is soft,a slight chewy texture,it's has this a mild bready taste(if there is word bready) that enchants the flavour of the bread.It just so nice and tasty.Plain,bland,siok... la...
The kaya and butter really have some sting in them.Kaya was very creamy thick,eggy taste slightly over sweet but still very tasty.Can certainly give any of the big kaya toast, big boys a run for their money..Butter(margarine) was creamy,soft,smooth,very fluffy like being beaten.Nice enough better than most.
I already been there,more times to buy this type of tradition,loaves of bread than any other place.Plain or with kaya butter...siok man!..My niece loves it with peanut butter.
One for the memory lane...
