Tang Chuan is an old established name of over 50 years in freshly made pau (Chinese steamed buns 大包) in Ayer Hitam.
Tang Chuan serves other traditional dim sum too and it is best known for their best selling big pork paus.
Tang Chuan is a popular meeting place for locals as the dim sum here are delicious and reasonably priced. Many Singaporeans also stop over when passing by Ayer Hitam. Other customers take away the famous paus to enjoy at home or in the office.

The soft, fluffy white skin warps the juicy, well marinated minced pork. I find adding a dap of chili sauce makes the pau even more delicious J
I also had a lo mai kai (glutinous rice with chicken) which was tasty.
Whenever I go up north, I will stop over at Ayer Hitam for tim sum breakfast at Tang Chuan.
