Popular pastry shop selling dou sha bing and other pastries. We also like to buy the dark soy sauce from here. Crowded with tourists but still quite well-organised.

Of all the tambun biscuit bakeries in Penang, strongly emphasize on the freshly baked ones. Him Heang is my number one choice. They do not pack these in those plastic "rolls". No preservatives added which is very important. Prefer to hand carry the boxes of...More
