Ming Xiang Tai (名香泰)- Passing Down of Food Heritage

In the fear of losing part of the traditional flavors as time goes by, Ming Xiang Tai strives hard not only to preserve the flavors of the yesteryears but to pass down the quintessential skills in crafting the traditional Cantonese pastries. With this vision in mind, Ming Xiang Tai has been constantly offering an array of Cantonese pastries and delicacies in all of its branches across Penang island. The Cantonese pastry specialist has been continually receiving positive responses from Penangites since its opening and has recently expanded its fifth branch at Penang Road. If you are constantly on the look out for good Cantonese pastries, do check out Ming Xiang Tai for its wide variety and comprehensive menu.  

Many Thanks to Ming Xiang Tai for arranging this workshop.

The latest branch by Ming Xiang Tai sits on Penang Road, right next to the famous Penang Cendol alley (2 doors away) and is evocatively decorated to bring back memories of the past. Step in the place and you will be instantly traveled back in time- when you see the wooden antiques hanging around the wall and the staff is making their effort to churn out delicious pastries with irresistible fragrance. 

Hands-on experience

Fellow members of the media were invited to the workshop- live demonstrations on how to make the perfect Bun and pastries were shown. We even had the opportunity to partake in the workshop by taking turns to roll the dough and to shape the bun/ pastries. Ming Xiang Tai has plans on offering the workshop to the public, interested parties may stay tuned to their announcement on their Facebook Page
