槟城名香泰 伴手礼好去处 |Penang Traditional Pastry Ming Xiang Tai

槟城之到处乱走,我们步行时就路过了这件人气很旺的名香泰饼家

从1979年开始,第二代老板,现年38岁的Au Meng Kit小时候在霹雳州以三轮车代步,沿街卖着手工制作的蛋挞为生。

2002年,开始在霹雳州经营Teck Kee点心楼,后来才到槟城展开自己的传统糕饼事业。

吃着点心,同时吃出经由一代代的师傅传承的传统好滋味。Preparing the pastry

饼家外头的壁画勃有幽默感,适合喜爱搞怪的我哈哈! Penang, cheeky kids

We must have passed by Ming Xiang Tai at least two times while doing our mural hunt, and each time, the shop seems to be bustling with people.

On the morning of day 2, we decided to drop by for some snacks after a simple breakfast at our B&B. Here’s a glimpse of what we ordered (sorry for the blur!):

Apparently the egg tarts were famous, and really tasty. I’m not a big fan of the soy bean milk though. joojourneys_penang_mingxiangtai_eggtarts_pastriesThe puffs or tau sau bias come in various flavours, both savoury and sweet. I loved the combinations and took away two boxes of eight (12RM) as gifts on the morning that we were leaving. joojourneys_penang_mingxiangtai_oozing

My take: I really liked the vibe of the outlet (which is apparently the 3rd outlet in Penang). It was bustling with activities, the shop was filled with the alluring aroma of baked pastries / pastries-baking-away-in-the-ovens.

Address: No. 26 Armenian Street Ghaut 10200 Penang
