今次我帶大家去看看區內一間較年輕的社區麵包店 – 小豬豬麵包。
Shau Kei Wan is located in the eastern part of the Hong Kong Island. In the old days, it was a fishing village and aging population is one of its major concerns among other districts in the eastern Hong Kong Island. Along with recent city redevelopment projects, new residential buildings are erected which help to build up a more energetic community.
I would like to take you to a tour of a relatively young community bakery shop – Little Piggy Bakery.
As told, the bosses of the bakery considered to have a small family operated shop and started to learn baking years ago. Upon mastering of general bakery operation, they found Little Piggy Bakery in mid 2017.
The shop area was not big but came with simple and cosy decoration. Despite the baking area is a little bit crowded, it looked clean and tidy.
Shelves were populated with various style of breads which were mainly European breads but with local adjustments.
I had bought their cranberry, dried-fruits with walnut bread last summer. Crumb was soft and made with good mix of dried-fruits and walnut. It tasted like most of the Taiwan style European breads which are highly welcomed by Asians. I personally preferred European breads which are more crispy and chewy.
From time to time, Little Piggy will create new bread products like this Malaysian style Banlan Kaya (Coconut jam with sugar) with red-bean French bread. If you like sweet bread, give them a try.
Among their cakes of various flavouring, I have tried the Chinese University Lemon Pie during my visit. This was originated from the wonderful taste of Lemon Pie the bosses had while they were studying in the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Just as indicated in their promotion note, the pie was made without any cheese nor butter. Really refreshing to me.
Breads sold here ranged from HKD 10 to around HKD 30. Slightly on the high side which probably was the result of expensive ingredients and shop operation cost.
另一方面，店內也有最地道的港式波蘿包(沒有波蘿 🤣 )、雞尾包(也沒有雞尾或酒🤣 )等，價錢較大眾化，亦提供非繁忙時段優惠，讓區內基層市民、長者等也可以享用他們的出品。
On the other hand, Little Piggy also has other traditional Hong Kong style breads like Pineapple Bun (doesn’t have Pineapple 🤣 ) and Cocktail Bun (Of course, no wine 🤣 ) which are more affordable. In additional, there are also various off-peak period discount offerings for the grassroot and the elderly.
而我今次就買了這個 – 意大利日曬蕃茄亁車打芝士包。
After a while, I got this – Italian sun-fried tomato and cheddar cheese bread.
The wonderful combination of Italian sun-dried tomato with cheddar cheese help to elevate the bread to another level. I highly recommend this. 👍
One more point to note, Little Piggy also got this hearty sales lady who will serve you with various recommendation and product tasting.
If time allowed, why don’t pay a visit to this caring little bakery!
