Ho Kee Pau



Was walking along Joo Chiat Road when I spotted Ho Kee Pau. Heard quite a bit about it so bought a Char Siew Pau and Dao Sar Pau to try



Char Siew Pau



Dao Sar Pau


The Char Siew Pau's meat tasted a little flat and the Pau was too thick, making it a little dry and powdery in the centre. Same case with the Dao Sar Pau. It could do with more Dao Sar filling. Both paus are definitely not value for money. 70 cents for such a small pau is plain ridiculous.

Rating:6.5/10

Address: Along Joo Chiat Road very near Joo Heng

Actually I've found the Ho Kee char siew pau to be one of the best (they used coriander in the meat mix which makes it quite tasty)... I consider it better than Crystal Jade or Red Star. Maybe you had a bad batch. Try the main outlet on Sims Avenue behind Aljunied MRT. Theres another one interesting pau place next to Joo Heng, its called D'Bun. Some of my Katonite friends swear by the paus at this place

Hi there! Thanks for your comment. Ya I probably had a bad batch. Will try again. I've tried D'Bun as well. Find it better than Ho Kee (as of now) but very expensive. :)
