Two words sum up this old-school confectionery in the basement of Katong Shopping Centre: banana pie. Bite into a slice and discover the unique combination of crumbly buttery crust, almond nibs, and a delightfully fragrant filling of sweet bananas and coconut shreds. Try the rich and fragile rum balls also, vanilla-rum centres dipped in melted chocolate and chocolate rice. There are other classic eats: apple and peach pies, scones, buns (the curry chicken bun is tastier and spicier than most) and such, but it’s the banana pie that steals the show.
