TUA (BIG) PAU @ SIN KWANG FOOCHOW BIG PAU, JALAN PADUNGAN, KUCHING


Sibu can boast of having all things Foochow-centric; however, the trophy of having the biggest Foochow Pau (dumpling) belongs to Kuching. And this is no idle boast... how big is it, you might ask? Well, it's in the neighborhood of a Cup 36B.

This place specialized in Pau & Sio Bee. The bulk of its business is take-aways, as the place don't have many sit-down patrons, and also not that many tables to accommodate them. It's a family affair in the making of the Paus; the son and daughter-in-law are the latest addition. They are not Sibu's expatriates; the grandfather hailed from China.


The steamed Paus come in Char-Sui, Bak-Pau (pork), Tau-Sa (Red Bean), and its renowned Tua-Pau is made of minced chicken with a small piece of hard boiled egg in it. If I'm not mistaken, there's Loh Mai Kai (Glutinous Chicken Rice) to be had as well.

AGREE! hehehe my fav pao of all time though still last time better. Sigh everything increase last time the big pao just RM2.20 then now? RM2.60 and worse is paying more for smaller pao.

But it's really better than 'hock hai' one. Too bad the son if u buy from him he's like bu nai fan that type of attitude. Keep it up!

you're right about the son... he was barking at the indonesian helper when we were there - even his rottweiler seems tame compared to him.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
