Little Red Shop 小紅店

Little Red Shop 小紅店

Little Red Shop 小紅店, or better known as the Balestier Road’s 611 Tau Sar Piah, is arguably one of Singapore’s more popular 豆沙饼 shops. It is the first time we are trying their bean paste pastries and we chose the 2 conventional flavours – traditionally salty and traditionally sweet.

Traditionally Salty

Traditionally Salty

The Traditionally Salty bean paste was rather coarse. It wasn’t all that salty and was lacking in the strong aroma and taste of salty bean paste. It was a far cry from the Him Heang Tambun Biscuits from Penang.

Traditionally Sweet

Traditionally Sweet

For the Traditionally Sweet, the texture of the bean paste was akin to the lotus fillings in mooncakes. In general, Little Red Shop’s Tau Sar Piah were on the oily side; taste wise, they did not go well with our taste buds.

  1. For Tau Sar Piah, U should try 639 Balestier Road, arguably the best… At $0.60 Each for Sweet & Salty.

  2. Recently we bought a box of 10 from Loong Fatt and it was finished in no time and leaves us craving for more.

    2 weeks later
    we were down at Vivio and saw Little Red Shop. Having read about it in a special feature at I eat I shoot I post blog I was expecting this to be as good, if not better, than Loong Fatt’s. Turns out to be a big disappointment. After the first bite, we struggled to finish the remaining 11 pieces.

    The tau sar piah by Thye Lee at Hougang is also good.
