Looking for a place which you can sit down, enjoy the cool breeze, have something nice and "smoothy" while chatting with friends? Look no more. New Sau Pau Cafe at Boulevard gives you the feel and relaxation that you need!

All the breads, buns, you named it, are the heart and soul of the owner. Why i said so? Because everyday he had to start working at 4am to start making them with great patience to make sure the best is served for his customers, those who had tried the sau pau will most likely "take one and never stop asking for more"

I went there and tried his well-known sau pau (baked bun which usually stuffed with pork marinated with Chinese barbecue sauce) and it definitely a thumb up on my opinion. Why? there are few things that i focus on what a good sau pau are:

1. the dough
Dough definitely plays a major role in sau pau as it determine the softness and the tenderness of the skin. Usually if the dough is not mixed properly, it might ended up a hard skin which makes even the biting very hard and not that easy to digest. Their sau pau however has no such problem when i had it. Without proper skills and correct measurement, it is hard to achieve the standard. Definitely a thumbs up from me.

2. the content
Content of the sau pau also very important. If it is too salty, you cannot taste you are eating sau pau at all. If the content does not taste anything, it is just as if you are eating a plain bread. Their content for sau pau however just nice.

3. the ratio of dough and content
Ok for me i think this is very important for just any kind of bun. Many places had the dough too much and little content, making it hard and not enjoyable. Their sau pau however i tested it and it is easily halved without broken into small pieces. Once you put in your mouth, just a few bites and you can feel as if it just melt in your mouth!

4. Control of heat in baking
The outcome for each bun is equally well-baked and definitely has controlled the heat well. I can see the consistencies are high in controlling the heat. If the oven is overheated, usually the base of the bun will be burnt, which make it bitter.

Ok enough talking, i would strongly recommended this place for anyone, regardless of any ages, go there and try the sau pau. It will get you finger licking! Those you worry about ruining their dietary programme, give a try on their different varieties of drinks even with yogurt or sugar-free!

This signboard just changed because the old one looks blurry and some customers cant see the signboard. Later no people come then i cham lor.... coz the shop just only opened 2years so not a lot of people know this place yet..

the shelf are the place where i display all kinds of buns for sale..

self service as u can see tray and plates were displayed there.. and don't forget the pau steamer at there too..

This clock was really eye catching for every customers when they pay for their food. Mostly of them asked me where i bought it. Actually my sis bought it at Bangkok, Thailand.. u can see it was using beans and raw item to make the clock. awesome huh..

u can even sit on the bar table and enjoy watching tv while eating our buns and paus.

if you're bringing your loves one here,this is the best place to sit because its more romantic. heh heh heh

This gun looks real huh? Just for display only and its bought from China.

A lot of people got curious by how we close our shop. Time for me to show of here yeah.. so far its the 1st in Miri too..

u can see there's a steel rod attached to the door..

its been pulled by pressing the remote control..

tada!! completed already heh..

for the rear shop was so tiring coz it hasn't have any motors to pull the door up so we always use our strengh to close and open it. haizzz...

wah... That is an ingenious way to close the "door". I went there once and tot that the protruding zinc on the floor could be dangerous if someone wears an open ended shoe kick on it.
