Seremban; the town of Siew Pau
Some said this is good; some said that is better.
Well, I say, judging which Siew Pau is good is very subjective.
Some love it thinner.
Some love it crunchier
Some love it juicier
As for me, I prefer my Siew Pau to be juicier inside, filled with generous amount of BBQ pork and thinner and crispy on the pastry.
1# Seremban Siew Pau; or also known as the Empayar Siew Pau
Their siew pau meet my requirement the most!
The baked buns were crispy on the outside and within the flaky pastry were generously filled with BBQ pork filling. Juicy, sweet and tender. You would get few biji of green peas here and there too. However, sometimes the siew pau were not up to the expectation (1 to 2 times of 10 times only lar). Generally, they are good all the time.
This brand is almost everywhere in Seremban, but I always get mind from this Warong which is at the Rasah area. Siew Pau with chicken fillings is available too!
2# Kee Mei Siew Pau
Another siew pau brand that is kinda famous among the people. I myself find that the filling was good, filled with juicy BBQ pork fillings. The only gripe was that, the pastry was slightly thicker to my liking.
3# Siew Pow Master; also known as Asia Siew Pau
Many may like this but not me. I find the pastry was very doughy and thick; not my kind of thing. The sweet BBQ fillings were alright but not as fragrance as the others. Well, this is based on personal opinion ya!
Asia Confectionery serves not only siew pau; but also other baked goods too such as egg tarts, butter cake, buns, and coconut tarts and so on.
If you find that there are other good siew pau(s) around, do let me know!
