Tai Wah Cooked Food at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre sells traditional Chinese fried fritters like the youtiao (Chinese cruller), ham chim peng (salted five-spice buns), green bean bun, red bean bun and, the specialty of their stall, the butterfly bun.

I enjoy their fritters as they are hand-made at the stall daily and fried on the spot so it is always fresh and piping hot.

My favorite among all is the butterfly bun but not just any butterfly bun, mind you. Theirs is really unique because it is pandan-flavored. So far, this is the only stall I know that does it this way.

I suppose pandan extract was added to the dough which explains the emerald green you see when you tear the two 'wings' apart. I am especially addicted to the crunch of the sesame seeds on the exterior. Bonus points if there are lumps of it.

These Chinese delicacies are selling for 70¢ each or $2 for any three and they are suitable for vegetarians.
