(Mother’s Day Special) Longevity Peach buns with Egg Custard by Peony Jade (6 to 11 May 2014)

Longevity Peach buns with Egg Custard

Peaches are traditionally associated with long life and immortality since antiquity. According to legends, Queen Mother of the West had a magical peach tree that blooms every three thousand years. These peaches were known to grant immortality to those fortunate enough to taste them. As the folklore is passed down through generations, peaches and similarly shaped steamed buns remain a staple at any Chinese celebrations.

This Mother’s Day, what better gift to present your beloved than the peach-shaped longevity buns that symbolises health, eternal blessings and longevity?

Longevity buns are typically stuffed with red bean paste or lotus paste. Specially for this occasion, Peony Jade gives this traditional item a twist with its well-loved buttery sweet and flowy egg custard filling.

Made fresh daily, these Longevity Peach buns with Egg Custard are priced at $1.20 per piece for dine in (minimum order of 4 pieces) and 6 pieces in a basket for $10 for takeaways. A one-day advance order is required for takeaways. They are available at both Keppel Club and Clarke Quay for both dine-in and takeaways from 6 to 11 May 2014.
