Penang Culture’s executive director Shawn Lim told ST that this comes as part of a partnership between Penang Culture and Ghee Hiang, which dates back to 2011, when the restaurant chain started using the latter’s sesame oil in its dishes.

Ghee Hiang subsequently obtained Halal certification for its pastries and started looking into expanding the sale of its pastries to Singapore with Penang Culture in late 2023, he added.

Brand has roots in Penang, Malaysia

Ghee Hiang had its roots in Penang since 1856, when it first began selling its pastries and sesame oil.

The bakery’s official website states that it makes its pastries by hand everyday.

Currently, a box of Ghee Hiang’s small Tau Sar Pneah costs RM12.90 (S$3.67) in Malaysia, while a box of Phong Pneah will set buyers back RM11.90 (S$3.38).

As of this writing, its sesame oil is available at select U Stars supermarkets, Prime Supermarkets, as well as a range of wet markets and retailers across the island.
