Zhen Zheng Handmade Pau

45 Sims Dr #01-150, Sheng Hui Coffeeshop (Map) 6am – 5pm Tue

The stellar item here is the kong bak pau. The rest, like the siew mai, lor mai fun (and they specialise in steamed paus), etc. are good but not exceptional. This braised belly pork has two pieces stuffed in this plump pau. The fatty pork rendered soft and with a fragrant dark soy braise with enough wobbly fats to elicit an "ooooh" upon the first bite. It's not an open face pau like many, but more like a little pau burrito with open ended sides so that the two slices of kong bak peek out. They currently have three stalls (also in Toa Payoh and Yishun) and this Sims Drive outlet was where we encountered this sliver from heaven. They hand make them on site each day and you'll see the racks of steamers and the cooks toiling. The manpower-heavy elbow grease work (bless them) is very well appreciated by foodies like us.
