When you are around China Town in Kuala Lumpur, Bunn Choon is a place that you must stop over and have freshly Chinese pastries straight out from the oven. Too good to be true. Even celebrities would make a pit stop during their visit to Malaysia, just to try out the famous pastries!.
It’s a vibrant eye-catchy building not to be missed at all. The olden architecture still stood strong since 1893. It’s not difficult at all to find since it is located next to ‘Kwai Chai Hong’.
Passed down from generations, Bunn Choon’s family mouth-watering pastries are to die for. Bunn Choon was famously known for their crispy warm crust egg tarts aka ‘Tan Tart’ in Cantonese. Bunn Choon generations are famously known for their signature traditional egg tarts and later on, was introduced to the charcoal flavoured crust. Both are all-time favourites. Your pick of Traditional vs Modern or perhaps both to savour.
Bunn Choon also serves varieties of Chinese pastries to choose from. You can dine in or have these take away afterwards for tea time, snacks or supper pairing it with a warm cup of tea.

Though they do not serve coffee, there are varieties of hot flower teas like Pu-er, Jasmine etc (You can refillable with hot water) and choices of ‘Leong Cha’ aka Chinese herbal tea. Chinese tea is traditionally served during the olden days as it helps in breaking down the food better. So you have a reason to order a good aroma tea to pair it with your meal. The Chinese porcelain cup is unique in that it has a strainer to strain the tea leaves or dried flowers. Not sure you may ask the friendly staff to guide you. You may remove the strainer to prevent your tea to be overly strong.
