Tat Tea for Yaowarat-style buns in Chinatown

It’s not always easy to find Thai-style custard buns in Singapore. That’s why we were excited after stumbling upon Tat Tea, an under-the-radar food kiosk that’s centrally located in Chinatown. Open for takeaway only, the snack stand specialises in soft Yaowarat buns overfilled with house-made kaya, as well as Thai milk tea.

The menu is lean with a focus on three kaya flavours: Pandan, Thai Tea, Taro. Bread lovers can order the kaya-filled buns, which are priced at $3 each. The house-made kaya is said to be less sweet than most Thai-style spreads, so you can indulge without feeling jelak.

Get your phone ready for a gram-worthy shot, as each soft bun is generously filled with your choice of kaya that oozes out with a slight squeeze. If you liked what you tasted, you can also take home a jar or two, priced at $6 each.

For a classic taste, stick with their Pandan Kaya, which boasts a vibrant green shade and a light pandan aroma. Orh nee fans have to try their Taro Kaya, made with fresh taro and coconut milk. Alternatively, go for the Thai milk tea flavour, which comes in an appealing reddish-orange hue, for a pick-me-up. For the best results, reheat slightly before consuming.

The kiosk also serves Thai Milk Tea ($3.50), available in two flavours: red and green. My go-to at any Thai joint is the Green Milk Tea, as there’s a subtle floral fragrance that I really enjoy. Pair these creamy drinks with the sweet buns for a satisfying snack!
