Chin Mee Chin Confectionery

I have wanted to visit Chin Mee Chin Confectionery after it made its comeback in 2021 after announcing its closure on 2018. For your information, Chin Mee Chin has been around since 1925, with their humble shop remaining a nostalgic fixture in the Katong community.

Now that Chin Mee Chin is managed together by the original family with Ebb & Flow Group, adding fresh items to the menu. 

Despite being there on an early morning, we were still required to queue for about half an hour.

While queueing up, one can take a look at the menu on the wall too.

Menu on the Wall

If you are here, do not miss out on their Kaya Toast Set which comes with 2 eggs and a hot drink. Bread was toasted over a charcoal fire with charred edges and was pillowy soft. Their delicious homely Kaya deserved some mention too. It was aromatic and not overly sweet with a little creaminess. 

Kaya Toast Set - $5.4

A combination of Cheesecake and chocolate brownie at the bottom. The small piece of Pastries was rich in taste.

Cheesecake Brownie - $2.60

Their Gula Melaka Coffee Chiffon Cake was fluffy and airy soft, carrying a light aromatic smell from the use of Gula Melaka as weel as coffee. 

Gula Melaka Coffee Chiffon Cake - $2.40

The cream horn has its cream piped to the brim and the pastry was flaky. It was not overly oily and yes, what am old school pastry we had.

Cream Horn - $2.20

The luncheon meat bun had an old school flavour and other than having an old school shape of bun. It's pretty ordinary.

Luncheon Meat Bun - $2.20

The laksa bun looks different with a long laksa leaf on top of the bun while the Otah Bun had some "windows" through the bun. The texture of the bun was soft and buttery without being too oily.

Laksa Bun & Otah Bun - $2.60 & $2.40

The Hae Bee Hiam Bun did give a good homely and nostalgic taste. As I Sank my teeth into the buttery bun, I enjoyed the flavourful bursts of umami and spice from the fillings. 

Hae Bee Hiam Bun - $2.40

Even the cup of Yuan Yang was contained in such an old school cup with saucer. The Yuan Yang is the combination of Coffee & Tea with both condensed and evaporated milk with sugar.

Yuan Yang - $1.70

I'm in love with the drink. What a great taste by combining Sour Plum + Lemon Juice + Sugar. 

Sng Buay (Sour Plum) Lemon - $2

I must agree that it's not the same vibes anymore but still the history of this Confectionery remains. You still can at least get some guaranteed delicious taste of nostalgia from Chin Mee Chin.
