Good day foodie friends! It is without a doubt that there are creative talents everywhere. During MCO, we all showcased the hidden barista and bakers in us. And while creative talents will usually go unnoticed, we’re here to share with you guys this home-baker from Penang that bakes super creative mantous, Aho’s Bun!
Creative, Adorable Handmade Baos & Mantous
First, let’s introduce Mrs. Sandra Ho, the founder of this humble yet uniquely creative mantou venture. After Mr. Kok passed away, Mrs. Sandra had to carry the breadwinner’s responsibility upon herself by managing their souvenir business. Shortly after, she decided to work as a part-timer at a supermarket as a saleslady.
As health is the main concern in the family, Mrs. Sandra started making her own mantous to replace white bread. Selling her handmade mantous to close friends and family, one of them suggested to Mrs. Sandra to sell them at the morning market. Heeding the advice, this tiny business started blooming as they find mantous being sold out in seconds.
Soon after, an Instagram page was set up to showcase the creative mantous. The business was named after the family name, Ho in hopes that it will provide a taste of home to all customers. Aho Bun’s business took off steadily during MCO as they sold them on vegetarian food platforms as well as other food delivery platforms.
Known for their baos that are filled to the edge with the unique mantou shapes, the business started to gain fame and recognition. Among the fillings for baos include red bean, black sesame, and also sweet potato.
The best part is, you can even request for the sweetness level according to your preference. Also, these handmade baos and mantous are made with no colourings and preservatives.
