Chin Mee Chin Confectionery
Probably the last of its kind left in Singapore, Chin Mee Chin Confectionery or CMC as it is popularly called in Katong is a old style Hainanese coffee shop serving beverages and bread served the traditional way.
Inside the 2 old style glass cabinets are trays of freshly baked buns
Authentic custard tarts.
And custard buns. These are good. Soft and the custard literally oozes out.
And they sell kaya too. Sickeningly sweet kaya. Damn shiok but don’t eat too much though. Its really really sweet.
Its most famous item has to be the butter kaya bun where instead of the usual 2 slice of white or brown bread, the kaya and butter is spread onto a sweet bun.
And we not talking of a small thin slice of butter either. It is a thick thick slice right on top of the kaya which is spread on both sides of the bun. Yummy.
Another hot favourite of theirs is the lucheon meat bun but it was not available on this occasion.
Go try it if you in the area. Before the old owner retires and the shop makes way for another new style coffee joint.
