What is Siew Pow 烧包
Siew Pow is a round pastry bun with meat fillings like pork or chicken. Somehow, the small town of Seremban is famous for it's Siew Pow, and it goes very well with coffee

There are many traditional bakeries that bake Siew Pow, but this particular shop is my favourite.
Chicken Siew Pow
The chicken siew pow has sesame seeds on it.
Pork Siew Pow
The pork siew pow has simple egg washed crust.
It's hard to decide if kaya is sweet or savory, because it is made of duck eggs, pandan, and sugar. So, you need to have a bite to decide. I personally like having it with my regular black coffee or English Breakfast Tea.
Another great tart for a great day. These coconut tarts are super fragrant too!
There are more too, but nothing is like you checking out the tarts yoursel. All you need to do is just buy, and take away.
I love the pastry crust, it isn't too flaky, or too fine like a cookie. It's just a well done crust with delicious fillings.
Service : ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I went during off-peak hours so, there wasn't any queue. The shop assistant was helpful. It is pretty much WYPIWUG, "What You Pick Is What You Get"
Location : ⭐⭐⭐
It is located behind a furniture shop near a secondary school. However, I'm pretty sure this place is well registered on GPS and Waze so it should be easy to find. There are sufficient parking space available. For a bakery, you just need about 15 minutes to buy what you want.
It's an underrated gem. There are other siew pow bakeries that require you to queue because of the crowd, but I personally like Kee Mei a lot. Even though taste is a personaly preference, I would highly recommend this place.
