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。
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. The 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.
The pastry apprentice (I assumed) was doing his touch-ups for the puffs while we were hanging around. Part of the Ming Tai Xiang history was retrieved and translated from this article: http://www.thestar.com.my/Travel/Malaysia/2012/05/21/Pastry-making-is-his-calling/
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
