Hainanese Delights with Chuan Ji Bakery

Date: 20 June
Time: 3 PM - 3.30 PM

Have you ever heard of the Hainanese salt-and-pepper biscuits (盐酥饼)? They were a signature item of Nam Tong Lee – a Hainanese confectionary along Purvis Road in the 1920s.

For the first time, Chuan Ji Bakery and Tong Heng Delicacies will share their experiences managing their traditional bakeries, each rich in their own dialect culture. In this session hosted by Suan – a grandson of the original proprietors – you can get a peek into how this iconic pastry is made. Try your hands at a recipe for Suan’s family kaya as well and let us know how it tastes!


About Chuan Ji Bakery

Madam Wong Chih Lian - daughter of the matriarch of the Purvis Street Hainanese pastry shop ‘Nam Tong Lee’ - started “Chuan Ji Bakery with her son Suan, to keep alive the legacy of the Hainanese Flaky Biscuits (酥盐饼) and to share the joys of Hainanese cuisine with a new generation. Today, with a humble store in Macpherson, Chuan Ji continues to serve the iconic Hainanese Flaky Biscuits and other Hainanese food and drinks, bringing fond memories for the old customers who remember the old shop, while introducing Hainanese cuisine to a new generation of customers.
