The tarts were freshly out from the oven and reminded me of the ones my mum made. Authentic nyonya pineapple tarts in packs of 15 at RM13 per pack. There is another packaging of 10pieces each but it wasn't as fresh.

I went there with Singaporeans and Japanese friends on 29 May 2017. Good and very reasonable price for their set meal for 10 pax with 8 dishes plus 1 dessert at ringgit 300. They also sell noya kueh, quite a variety.
