Bunn Choon Egg Tart Kwai Chai Hong Petaling Street
Have you heard about Kwai Chai Hong near Petaling Street? The Kwai Chai Hong involves 10 restored shophouses along Jalan Petaling (Petaling Street) and Lorong Panggung. The Kwai Chai Hong started since last year and it is very popular among the locals and the tourists. Bunn Choon occupies one of the shops in Kwai Chai Hong, Petaling Street and they are popular with the egg tarts. Kwai Chai Hong is a Cantonese phrase and it translates to ‘Little Ghost Alley’.
We were invited for the launch of Kwai Chai Hong last year but we were traveling on that time. The Kwai Chai Hong was an instant success and most of the restored shophouses are now occupied. Now, let’s talk about Bunn Choon Egg Tarts.
Bunn Choon Egg Tarts is established since 1893 and it is over 110 years as they claimed. We understand that they were at the old Imbi Wet Market and moved to Petaling Street when the market was demolished years ago.
It is a beautiful restored restaurant and there are tables on the upper level. The egg tarts and other traditional Chinese pastries are sold at the ground floor.
Bunn Choon also offered dim sum for their customers and when we there it was packed and luckily we found a table on the upper level.
We are not sure whether the dim sum is a separate management as guests must purchase the egg tarts on your own and you can’t order it. Thus, we had to purchase the egg tarts at the ground floor and paid it separately.
The egg tarts are tasty. The crust is flaky and the filling is smooth in texture, thick in size and it is very tasty. It is sold at RM 2.30 per piece.
We took a bite to show you how thick is the filling of the egg tart. To be honest, this is one of the best tarts in Malaysia and it is better than the popular egg tart brands in Klang Valley. Ordering one piece of egg tart is never enough.
For their dim sum, we order the ‘siu mai’ and the fried foo chuk with cheese. Overall, the dim sum is above average and to be honest, you can stick to the egg tarts.
With over 110 years of history in making egg tarts, this is one place we don’t mind visiting for their egg tarts. If you visited Bunn Choon for their egg tarts, we would love to hear from you and do comment if you agree or disagree with us.
We also spent some time taking photos at Kwai Chai Hong with our boys. Looks like Kwai Chai Hong will be somewhere we would love to spend our weekend brunch with our family.
