Tau Sar Piah is a very popular local pastry in Singapore. Tasty green bean paste wrapped in thin and flaky crust that is baked to a pretty golden hue. The pastry usually comes in three different flavours – sweet, saltish or sweet saltish. Personally, I prefer the saltish version while hubby goes for the sweet version.

This pastry can be easily found around Singapore but the ones sold here is one of the best that we had tasted. There is good balance in taste and texture was perfect. Best of all, it is still made by hand in the traditional way. Their popularity means having queues snaking all the way out of the shop and an hours’ wait is not unusual. We were lucky that the queue wasn’t long when we visited.
