But back to this Lo Po Beng. It comes from Bakery King Cake Shop (a.k.a 麥包皇饼店). They have a shop in Hurstville as well as Chatswood. I've eaten from both and they're made the same way, however Hurstville's is that tiny bit better in my opinion.
Bakery King's Lo Po Beng has a really nice soft pastry which is not dry. The winter melon filling is moist with a nice flavour but not too sweet. The proportions of melon and pastry are just right. The other thing that makes it right is the price. Cause at $3.20 for 5 (weighing 180gm) it's alot cheaper than the one at 85°C.
|Oh there are 5 in a box, I may have eaten 2 right away cause I couldn't wait!|
