Inside out…

Recently, I blogged about the nice buns

…from this bakery here but I did not take any photographs to share at the time and I did say that I would do so the next time I got hold of any.

Actually, it had been my intention all this while to drop by there at the place of origin…

…to buy them but somehow or other, I never did drive past that way so I did not manage to do so.

Well, it so happened that there were fresh deliveries at my neighbourhood shop in the next lane from my house…

…so of course, I wasted no time in grabbing a few packs and took them home.

The first time I bought a pack, I could not see any clue as to what the filling was inside the buns so I asked the nice and handsome guy at the cashier’s counter and he told me. I told him I could not see a thing and he replied that I would have to look very carefully. Indeed, despite the fact that at my age, I still have very good vision without the aid of glasses, I had difficulty seeing the word “BUTTER”…

…rubber-stamped on the label. I only managed after I got home that day and had one very good look at it! Now that I know where to look, I have no problem whatsoever, not anymore and that day, I bought the butter and also the kaya (coconut jam).

You can tell from the light green colour of the kaya filling…

…that there is a lot of santan (coconut milk) in it. I sure enjoyed the extra-lemakness compared to those from the other bakeries and they certainly are a bit more generous too.

Personally, I prefer the really yummy butter filling…

…that is so moist with the butter unlike the others that are so dry and they give so little of it that with one bite of it, it will all be gone, leaving you to finish off the bun kosong (empty).

They have others too – red bean and peanut but I am not into those so I did not bother to give them a try. At RM3.60 for a pack of 6, these buns work out to 60 sen each. I so love the very soft texture of the bread and I find that if I toast it in the oven for a while till the top crust is slightly crusty and the butter in the filling has melted a bit and I eat it slightly warm, it makes it taste all the more nicer.

KIM TAK MINI SUPERMARKET is located along Jalan Ruby, in the block of shops on the left of the parking area – AH KAU CAFE (2.316346, 111.839861) and LOUIS BAKERY LW.Pattisserie (2.316411, 111.839847) are located in that same block to the extreme left.

  1. Yes, I like butter buns more than any others. I love those butter milk buns from a bakery shop at Poh Kwong Park, Green Road and Mita Cake House. These are the 2 places I would venture to if I am craving for butter milk buns but Green Road is abit out of my way and nearest to my place is Mita Cake House. The other day I bought a loaf of butter cake and a packet of butter milk buns from Mita. Really satisfied my cravings.

    So far, I only had the ones here:
    Their butter cup cakes are very nice – my girl enjoys them but their butter buns aren’t as good as these that I do like a lot now. I don’t know where that bakery is but you can buy their products at virtually every grocery or mini supermarket in town.

    There’s another bakery but it is in the town centre, and the timing is not so convenient – none when I send my girl to school…or when I go and pick her up after school. In the end, I would end up buying whatever they have at the shop, so pissed off!

  2. I think I saw this brand of butter buns sold in supermarket here, like Choice. I never buy or try it.
    Butter bun, used to like the one sold at the orange coloured shop in Padungan, a walking distance to Noodle Descendant shop. Cost around 60cents when I worked in the city centre, not sure how much now. Long time did not buy it.

    Oh? You have Bakelicious in Kuching too? Didn’t know that. Irene says Mita has good ones. I only know the ham and cheese rolls/buns at Xiao Pao Wang – loved those so much at one time.
    A lot of trendy bakeries in Kuching but at the end of the day, one can just have so much of those – I enjoy my old school buns a lot more.

  3. Sometimes I will have plain bun dipped in black coffee during tea breaks when I was working. Now I hardly buy buns. Yes, I too prefer butter buns lightly toasted in the oven. Yums.

    Plain buns or bread, I will want to find something to apply like peanut butter, kaya or jam…or I will mash egg or fry sausages, ham, bacon or patties or I’ll open a can of corned beef or luncheon meat, tuna or sardines to eat them with. I am not used to eating plain bread.

  4. A small jar of kaya here is about £2, rather expensive I think.
    So I usually make my own kaya with my microwave!

    Wowwww!!!! That’s less than RM10.00, very reasonable especially if it came from all the way here.
    But my cousins living overseas all learnt to make/cook everything themselves, either not available there or too expensive.
