The Hainanese Polo Bun at Keng Wan Hing Coffee Shop, Gaya Street.

Being one of the oldest coffee shop in town and located at the most happening Gaya Street of Kota Kinabalu.

It was my second attempt on their famous Pineapple Bun a.k.a. Polo Bun. I never had any Polo Bun in town with real Pineapple Marmalade which normally found with butter in it.


On 30th May, it was public holiday in Sabah in conjuction with Harvest Festival celebration. Before we start our shopping at the local mall here, we went to the coffee shop for breakfast. ;-) We were lucky to be there when those bread were just served hot from the oven.

The warm soft bread texture and the sweet pineapple marmalade just perfect for light breakfast or afternoon tea, especially when it is serve with a cup of black coffee or a cup of Teh C (milky tea).

Once I was being informed that even tourists from Indonesia bought 400 (four hundred) pieces - NO JOKE!! As souvenirs to their friends and family back to Indonesia.

That's good to know there's good old bread recipe in town. Love to explore more about it and sitting there chilling with family and even friends once in a while. The feeling of oldies, some times we really need to sit back and enjoy. :-)

FYI, the steam bun from the coffee shop are good as well. I haven't tried it yet, soon I will try. :-)

Location :
Opposite to RHB Bank, Gaya Street.

  2. The buns looks so good as seen in the pics. Pineapples are my fav so this must be a great try. Wish they had the same outlet at my place. I can understand why people from Indonesia buy so many pieces.

  20. Looks really good. Is it similar to the Hong Kong style one with the butter, except they use pineapple, or are the other differences?
