Founded in 1950 by Mr Koh Sun Liang, who singlehandedly still runs it today, this Teochew bakery and sweetmeat shop is one of Singapore’s most traditional, using methods and equipment unchanged in decades. Apart from handmade pastries, snacks and biscuits, Mr Koh also hand-crafts sculptures from sugar, nut brittle, and other ingredients for weddings, birthday and religious purposes and occasions. Don’t miss the snacks made from peanuts (all roasted in-house), sesame seeds, and puffed rice.
