Savoury…

Not everything is sweet here – they do have some very nice savoury pastries as well. My sister is a regular customer here – she likes the sio pao (baked buns) and curry puffs…

…and she likes how theirs are a lot cheaper than what one can find at the other bakeries in town, not that theirs are necessarily nicer. I’ve been here a couple of times but no, I am not a regular. There are many very popular eateries in the two blocks of shops and at times, parking may be a problem.

Well, it so happened that somebody gave my sister a box of these savoury delights including the sio pao

I suppose these would be something like the celebrated Seremban sio pao

…which I am not particularly fond of – I prefer the ones from Kai Joo Lane in Kuching…

…a lot more!

My girl did try the mini ones…

…or perhaps, these were the chicken ones. The shape may be different but the pastry and the filling taste and look the same.

I tried one of the curry puffs…

…and I loved the tasty curried potato filling. The pastry was kind of hard though – they would need to work on it to improve but as it was, I did enjoy it a lot more than some of the so-called curry puffs that they sell at some bakeries around town.

I guess with all the favourable reviews I’ve heard and what I tried was, on the whole, quite nice, I shall be dropping by there a lot more often now

SWEET FACTORY… 

…is located at Wisma Liberty, Lot 4047, Block 3, Jalan Pedada (now Jalan Dr. Wong Soon Kai).

  1. Me too love the Kai Joo Lane sio pao. Had been a long time haven’t venture into the town centre where parking is a problem. To make nice curry puffs/sio pao, the fillings is equally important as the pastry.

    Yes, the filling must be nice but it is the pastry that draws the line between the boys and the men. That is why I like the ones at Kai Joo Lane more than all the rest elsewhere – the pastry is just perfect, crumbly but not overly so, the buttery fragrance makes it a cut above the others. I have never tasted any that is nicer anywhere else in the world!
    But the Rubber Road ones come nowhere near not because of the pastry – they do it quite well but their filling pales in comparison. Theirs does not taste as nice and there’s too much msg.
    P.S.
    You can park at the multi-storey car park behind the Yayasan Sarawak Building and walk over, not far. We always parked there to walk over to Kai Joo…or for the kolo mee at Oriental Park.

  2. It has been a long while since I had curry puffs… I like siew pau though especially freshly baked from the oven… hot and nice!

    Bet you’ve never tried the ones from this shop at Kai Joo Lane in Kuching. None in Sibu or anywhere else comes near – they are so good! Once you’ve tried, you will never want to eat the rest ever again.

  3. Oh la la… those pastries look delectable! The TK Bakery near my office has a section in their warm pastry section that has loads of such pastries. I dare not walk in lest I succumb to temptation! LOL!

    I’ve tried some of the nice stuff from TK Bakery before. Wish we had one that is as nice here.

  4. I love savoury pastries especially sio bao and curry puffs. If I see them, I will usually end up buying some home.

    Not me, not here…for the simple reason tat all those that we have here are not worth getting excited about. Not really nice, all of them.
