Back in SIN - Chin Mee Chin Confectionery

It is astonishing to realise that I have never been to Chin Mee Chin all my life! I would like to say that it is because it was on the other side of Singapore but that is not an excuse is it? A bigger surprise is that my family too, have never patronised this well-known establishment as well!

This popular bakery has been around for a long time, and well loved by many, especially the locals living around the area. I love the old school coffee shop interior, with the marble table tops and wooden chairs.

The nostalgia continues with the open kitchen, where one can have a peek back into the past, where the kaya (coconut jam) is still made in house.

We ordered the Kaya Toasts and Kopi and boy was it delicious! The buns were toasted perfectly, as the bun still retains its soft, chewy texture underneath its crisp, toasty goodness. The kaya is lovely, creamy and not overly sweet. All of this is combined with a nice cold slice of salty butter to give you the ultimate shiokness and umami in a bite!

The pastries here are also really good. The cream puff and tart are not something you would see in the popular cafes and bakeries everywhere, but they are old school classics that will bring a smile to many peoples' faces, including mine.

Chin Mee Chin Confectionery is an institution that has stood the test of time with its traditions and scrumptious goods. As much as I love my Egg Benedict and Lattes, I cannot go past a good Kaya Toast and Kopi in an old coffee shop setting. I am just salivating thinking about the wonderful toast and pastries, and hope that this old time favourite will continue to satisfy the hunger of its fans, and attract more with its delicious goods and nostalgic charm.
