Do you love pastry ? Where do you usually buy your pastries from?
Okay no need to tell me, I know where.
Same ol’, same ol’, right?
So wouldn’t it be refreshing to try out something new once in a while? I mean, if it’s something that tastes just as good or even better, why not? I think i might have just found that one shop that sells soft, flaky, golden and super yummy pastries!
I AM NOT KIDDING.
Yup yup. Just the other day, we were at Square 2, and we decided to have our afternoon tea break at Yip’s.
We had to wait for quite a bit because….
THE QUEUE WAS LIKE EXCEPTIONALLY LONG ALL THE TIME, MAN!
And we all know that when the queue is always long, that can only mean that they are queueing up for something worth the wait, and definitely worth their time.
Before I came, I did some research and managed to find quite a number of positive reviews online. So I came prepared and I knew I had to try their Curry Puff & Tom Yum Puff, which are just some of their many signature items.
The Tom Yum Puff is really a refreshing change from the usual puffs that we often taste. If you are a tom yum lover like me, then you will definitely love this!
And yes, their Curry Puff sells out every single day without fail, I was told!
It was not a surprise why. Just look at the fillings! So generous!
TATEK FINISHED TWO CURRY PUFFS ON HIS OWN WITHOUT EVEN SHARING WITH ME BY THE WAY!
I remember asking him, “B, have you tried the Curry Puff or not?”
His reply was, “OH, YA I ATE TWO. NO MORE ALREADY. YOU WANT AH?”
I WANT AH?!!!!!! MY GOD, TATEK. OF COURSE I WANT!!!!
But worry not, they were baking more Curry Puffs, so I managed to eat the piping hot ones! Taste soooooooooooooo good, I tell you! The pastry is so airy and light yet crispy.
You know, the owner, Andik Nurdiany, will come to the shop every day without fail to prepare the ingredients. She told me that she prefers to prepare them with her own hands because baking is really something close to her heart. She loves the fact that her pastries, muffins, tarts, and basically everything at Yip’s are handmade with love every single day. Now this is one patient lady here, I can tell. Baking is not an easy feat, actually. I remember telling Andik that I am pretty hopeless when it comes to baking, mainly because I lack the patience. I remember baking M&M cookies and they ended up so huge. Like super duper huge, almost gigantic. Why, even giant cookies are smaller than my cookies! -_-
MY ULTIMATE FAVOURITE HAS GOT TO BE THE CREAMY MUSHROOM PUFF. THIS ONE, YOU MUST MUST MUST MUST MUST MUST GIVE IT A TRY, I AM NOT KIDDING YOU.
When I tasted it, my eyes almost popped out not only because it was piping hot (fresh from the oven) when I ate it, but also because it is really that yummy. The oozing filling tastes exactly like thick and creamy mushroom chicken soup! I then told forced my girls to give it a bite. Initially, they did not want to because they thought it would be spicy and all. But at the same time, they know me too much. If I really insist, then it can only mean that it is really that good. As such, they trust me a lot when it comes to food.
So yes, the moment they took that first bite, they kept coming to me for more, like little kitties. In fact, they could not even wait for me to feed them, and pulled my hand closer to them so that they could feed themselves while I chitchatted with Andik and her good buddy, Nicholas.
And because I ran out of Creamy Mushroom Puff to feed them, they went to their Daddy for more!
Best eaten when it is piping hot!
Dang. As I am typing this out, I am actually already craving for Yip’s Creamy Mushroom Puff. Might just grab some for break fast today!
Mysha especially enjoyed the muffins! At Yip’s, they have an assortment of muffins. Again, they do not exactly sell the usual muffins that you can easily find elsewhere. How about Oreo, Pandan & Cheese, Orange Cranberry, Apply & Cinnamon, Cranberry & Cheese, and even Coffee muffins?
Mysha’s favourite was the Oreo muffin!
She was like, “Nobody can disturb my muffin ah!”
When Mysha is eating and enjoying her food, nobody should ever EVER disturb her. This girl of mine really knows how to appreciate food. She always takes her time to finish her food if she really likes it. And she can be sitting at one corner quietly, eating…and eating.
And when she is done and full, she is always one happy girl. <3
Isn’t she as chubby and sweet as a muffin? <3
Besides pastries and muffins, there are cookies too at Yip’s! You might want to thrill your taste buds and your guests’ for the upcoming Hari Raya with some of Yip’s cookies!
Cereal Prawn Cookies!
Now, how would you like to taste spicy cookies? Eating Yip’s Cereal Prawn cookies is like eating cereal prawns in cookie form! You have to got to try them yourselves to believe me. And it will be fun to see your guests popping these cookies into their mouth ever so confidently thinking that they are just like any other cookie. In fact, Tatek did just that. He popped one into his mouth and he went, “Eh b, why that cookie so spicy?”
Oh if you love cheese, you must try their Cheddar Cheese cookies.
Pretty addictive, if I may add. They sort of melt in the mouth!
In fact, I realized I was left with less than half a bottle when I wanted to do the photoshoot for this.
CULPRIT? TATEK AGAIN!
OH MY GOD LOR, TATEK. YOU COOKIE MONSTER YOU.
You can visit their website HERE to view more of what they bake at Yip’s!
Can you see our tables full of pastries and goodies from Yip’s? We were like gluttons, really. I could not exactly be bothered to pose for the camera because I was enjoying my pastries.
Where is Yip’s at, again?
I was a very happy bunny because I managed to tapao their puffs! I was like, “Must grab them puffs before the other customers do. Or else must wait till they bake more.” Brought them home for my parents to taste. Daddy too thinks that the puffs are to die for. He even asked me where I bought them from.
Where else but at Yip’s by Andik Nurdiany!
