Pak Hailam Kopitiam Pau
But I find the amount of red bean filling is far too much and too sweet as well. Each time when I eat it, I have to remove out the extra red bean paste.
I have tried its coffee at the outlet in Sungei Wang Plaza and I am truly disappointed. It is not as aromatic as the one served at Toast Box.
These days, if I want to eat Pak Hailam Kopitiam buns or pau (usually it is BBQ chicken filling), I ‘ta-pao‘ (pack it or take away) them and enjoy them with my cup of kopi-O in Toast Box at Pavillion Shopping Mall.
No More One Ringgit Pau
These days you don’t see people lining up to buy Pak Hailam Kopitiam’s buns anymore.
Yes, because the prices of dumplings have gone up. No more RM1.00 (one Ringgit) each. Now it costs RM1.50 each.
UPDATE Jan 2016:
The prices of Pak Hailam pau have gone up again. (see receipt below)
Chicken Pau: RM2.50
Red Bean Pau: RM2.00
Back in those days, when the pau cost just one Ringgit each, every time when I was at the Sungei Wang Plaza outlet, there was always customers lining up.
Once I witnessed a lady customer bought ten of them. Frankly, for one wholemeal pau selling for a just a Ringgit is very cheap.
Presently, the outlet has reduced its sitting area. It has taken up by King’s Bakery.
It is rather quiet and I don’t see any more eager customers queuing up to get hold of its wholemeal pau.
Toast Box Coffee Powder
Anyway, do you know that Toast Box Malaysia has started selling coffee powder? Now you can savor the same robust and aromatic coffee serves at its stall, in the comfort of your own home.
If I am not mistaken for 250 gm, it is selling at RM19.90 (before tax).
