THE STORY OF:
603 Tau Sar Piah
603 Tau Sar Piah is a family owned bakery, cherished for its traditional pastries and delicate sweet treats. Started by passion, it has been over 20 years since they began on this journey. Still, one bite and you will know that they still take the same pride and dedication to creating their delectably flaky pastries and deliciously fluffy cakes. The Ng Siblings' mother is passionate about food – she makes the perfect braised noodles and brews the most amazing soup, both of which are heirloom recipes handed down to her. Yet in her old age, she found a new joy for baking. She wasn’t professionally trained, so this was an arduous journey, but it was one driven by passion. This brings a style that is bounded by neither training nor convention – "mother" experimented day and night to create their signature classics at 603 Tau Sar Piah.
Today, they still pursue that continual experimentation. Before dawn, the team arrives to prepare the ovens and start with the day’s baking. At night and on weekends, they spend time on their recipes – working to create new items or to inject new ideas. They want to serve your traditional favourites, but with their own unique character and personality. First opened at Rail Mall in 1995, as business was picking up, they had to relocate due to other plans by the mall management. They wanted a place of our own, and fate brought us to this shophouse along Balester Road. This row is famed for its tau sar piah, a flaky pastry with delicious fillings. They didn’t even offer this at that time, but so many of our customers asked for it and they took up the challenge. They now not just have the classic sweet and salty flavours, but have more than 10 different kinds, including our much-loved black sesame and yam tau sar piahs. They were new on the row, but we have now been here for almost 20 years.
It brings them great joy to watch children grow up eating and enjoying their treats. For them, 603 Tau Sar Piah is the family’s baby of love – everyone chips in to make it better. Be it parents, spouse, or children, they all take great pride in what they serve.
