Hello dear Steemians,
Have you heard of Tan Hiok Nee Heritage Street in Johor bahru? It is near to JB Custom. For many years, the old street still preserved the original appearance of the building design, with minor renovation and painting works. Therefore, there will be an antique feeling when we been there.
Today I would like to introduce you a century-old banana cake bakery in this old street.
Since our car is parked on another street, we have to walk some distance.
The shop rear lane view of the old street.
Many buildings retained their previous architectural design such as doors and windows. The current trend of mural painting works is also exist in the street.
A unique street which’s preserve the original architectural design and added the new trend murals concept.
There are also many good restaurants and cafes along the street.
Red painted restaurant. It is very distinctive with a retro flavour to attract customers.
Walked thru the road until the junction of the street. This is the main entrance of Tan Hiok Nee Heritage Street.
So many people queued there!
Hiap Joo Bakery is officially 100 years old this year. It is established since 1919. The people here loving it so much and queued for the best banana cakes in town.
For the past 100 years, they have use the same method to bake pastries. It is a rare old-fashioned bakery shop in Johor Bahru.
The big box is priced RM10.00 and the small box is priced RM4.50.
I bought a big box of banana cake. The bakery shop using hand cut method to cut the banana cakes for 100 years. The hand cut is very impressive as each piece is evenly sized, well done!
The bakery shop is using traditional wood fired wall oven ‘Century Old Bakery Way’ to bake the banana cakes and other pastries. The outer skin of this banana cakes is lightly charred, and maintain the moist fluffy and tender soft of the cakes. It is really first class handmade, delicious!
