Imbi market is fast becoming one of my favorite breakfast places on weekday mornings. It’s not too far from work, has a parking spot for my bike (paid car parking right next to the market), and excellent breakfast choices.
A few days ago, I tried the widely acclaimed Bunn Choon mini egg tarts for the first time.
Bunn Choon egg tart, since 1893
The banner that hangs over at Bunn Choon egg tart stall says that it’s been in operation since 1893, which means that this place existed before my great grandparents were born. I suspect that modern equipment such as the electric ovens were probably not being used back then to bake these goodies, but it seemed that the younger generation owners managed to keep the recipe intact, keeping the sterling reputation of this little stall over the years.
tried the almond tart, charsiu pie, and egg tart
For breakfast, I tried their almond tart, chasiu pie, and their famous egg tart (all for RM 4.40).
With business always brisk, you always get the pasty fresh and often still very warm. The egg tart creamy, soft, and flavorful, goes very well with a glass of hot coffee (doesn’t pair so well with Hainanese tea I think). The almond tart was not overly sweet and carries a subtle almond taste. Chasiu tart crispy on the outside and moist inside, with delicious bits of pork threatening to ooze out if you don’t chew it down quick enough.
If you are looking for some good old fashion Chinese pastry to go or for a quick breakfast, this would be a place to check out.
