All Day Polo Bun, Damansara Uptown

April 12, 2019

Its bright yellow walls lined with the names of Hong Kong districts and destinations, All Day Polo Bun serves up the famed pineapple buns of cha chaan tengs with a dozen different stuffings. You can have them savoury, packed with possibilities like luncheon meat wrapped in fried egg (RM7.90); plain butter; ham and cheese; and even an XL-sized chicken chop; or sweet, with a princely portion of ice cream or sorbet - we had the tangy lemon sorbet, but others might opt for dark chocolate, salted caramel, vanilla or uji matcha flavours (RM15.90 each), washed down with ultra-refreshing milk tea in an ice bucket (RM6.90).

Fun Fact One: All Day Polo Bun's sibling-founders Chester and Leena Lee journeyed to Hong Kong to study the art of preparing polo buns, but they've tweaked their recipe subtly for Malaysian preferences - each sweet bun is still served fresh and warm with a distinctive crumbly top crust, but Chester says the insides of the bun are a bit softer than HK's norm.

Fun Fact Two: All Day Polo Bun is new in the Klang Valley, but its team also runs Hong Kong 8AM, a nearly two-year-old cafe in Penang, on Macalister Lane in George Town.
