You know it's kaya toast, you love its newspaper curry rice. Now look forward to even more delicacies at The Hainan Story as it adds to its tea-time menu with rarely-seen traditional handmade Hainanese kueh, Yi bua, as well as a new iteration of toast buns with a special collaboration with the famous Taiwanese MONGA Crispy Chicken.

[New] Hainanese Yi Bua  

Available from 12 July 2021 at $7.90 for 3pcs of traditional Yi bua, 3 pcs of peanut Yi bua

Bringing back a blast from the Hainanese past, The Hainan Story is putting the traditional Yi bua on the menu, a traditional kueh you will not easily find just anywhere. Traditionally served during weddings and babies’ full moons, the Yi bua is a Hainanese steamed dumpling made with glutinous rice and potato flour and filled with a sweetened mixture of palm sugar, jaggery red sugar, grated coconut, ginger, and crushed roasted peanut before being wrapped with sheets of banana leaves and steamed to a pillowy soft sweet treat. First sight of it might remind some of the more famous ang Ku kueh, but the Yi bua stands out with its addition of peanuts that lend it an earthy veil on top of distinct crunch.

The Hainan Story looks forward to sharing this taste of tradition with the new generation in the form of two flavors of Yi bua, presented in equally contemporary styles. The traditional Yi bua will be served in its classic white color while pretty in pink yibua will come with additional peanuts. Both are modernized to be served in a triangular shape with the banana leaf left at the base of the Yi bua instead of wrapped around it, for ease of removal during consumption. Try a taste for only S$7.90 (6pcs) for three pieces of traditional Yi bua and three pieces of peanut yi bua from 12 July onwards!
