Isi Pau Ayam...

Many famous people had visited this little town that was known for its Sultan Idris Teacher’s Training College (now known as Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris). But they came here for a different interest too. I was told that the first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman would stop in Tanjung Malim just to have Pau. I also heard that the great cartoonist, LAT stopped here for the same reason too. There were so many famous people have stopped here for that pau! Even before Proton had opened it’s plant here.

What is so special about this Pau? So, I visited the coffee shop today and tried it. There are four flavours, which are Pau Daging (Beef), Pau Ayam (Chicken), Pau Kaya and Pau Kacang (Beans). I tried the Kaya, Chicken and Beef. Sorry to tell that I don’t like Pau Kacang… The Pau is soft, white, clean and fresh that I couldn’t decide which one is the best. I love it all and felt worth for the money spent. There were also many other families having their evening tea at the coffee shop. At my surprise, most of them are malays despite the coffee shop owner is a Chinese.

The prices are fair for a famous eat place. Pau Kacang and Pau Kaya is only RM1.00 each. Pau Ayam and Pau Daging is only RM1.50 each. However, the coffee shop could have looked more classic with wooden chairs instead of plastic chairs. Also be careful of small pieces of bones inside the chicken and beef flavours.
Today, the Pau is available at a Chinese coffee shop in Tanjung Malim.

Yik Mun coffee shop is located at the junctions of Tanjung Malim old entrance. I don’t have the exact address of the coffee shop. But, if you are coming from the Tanjung Malim Toll Plaza, drive straight until you see a flyover bridge. Take left until you get into the old road towards Tanjung Malim. Drive past 2 traffic lights until you stop at the third one. When you stop at the third traffic light, look on your right and you’ll see the Yik Mun Coffee shop. Other landmarks that you’ll see along your way from the toll plaza are I LOVE U CORNER on your right, TAMAN BAHTERA on your right and UNIVERSITI PEDIDIKAN SULTAN IDRIS on your left.

However today, they have opened two more outlets in Mid Valley and One Utama, KL. And, I don’t know how does it taste in KL. But, the pau that I had in Tanjung Malim, was wonderful! So? Why wait, jump into your car and drive to Tanjung Malim now!
