i have read about this bakery from magazines years ago and have known that its pineapple rolls were extraordinarily good. knowing from openrice tht this bakery has a branch right next to the fairwood fastwood i was going to visit, theres no reason for me to NOT pay this legendary bakery a visit.
i spent quite a while locating the TUNG LO MALL. as i was walking up the stairs, i was quite shocked by the SIZE of the 'shops'. anyways, just turn right and you will see the logo o this bakery right opposite to a malay pastry shop. as i was rushing for dinner,i took a card and promised to return after eating.
i ended up buying a box of the pineapple roll i have dreamt of buying for all these years-and it was NOT cheap, costing you 75 for a small box of 17 pieces. the rolls also look bigger in photos than in reality. upon returning home, i immediately opened the box and tried a piece-it was so light and crispy. i lifted one up with my fingers and put it beneath my nose. OHHHHHHHHHHHH the magical aroma of butter cookies came like a flood. i put it into my mouth. YUMMMMMM. the butterness of the cookies, the crispness of it, the sweetness of the pineapple-different textures and tastes came one after another as i slowly and lovingly bit into the roll. the pineapple filling was not artifically but naturally sweet. omg. this is the perfect cookie i have always been looking for.
all it all, paying 75 for 17 pieces of these tiny rolls seem to be a luxury. but if u have the chance to try it out before paying for it, i promise that you will immediately fall crazily in love with it and change your attitude towards it.
