The best cream puffs in Penang can be found at Continental Bakery, Nagore Road which makes a range of retro treats (egg tarts, apple pies, kaya) and breads. The moment you open the door, the pleasant, homey scent of freshly baked goods waft out and I swear, this relaxes and cheers me up better than any scented candle.
I can never resist getting a few of these cream puffs each time I’m around that area and they are so laku (popular), you often have to go there early to beat the crowd as these are their best sellers and get sold out in no time at all. Just one bite of these creamy custard-y delights will have you making repeated trip back for more.
So what are your favourite old school desserts?
