Cheng Zu Pepper Cake 丞祖胡椒餅 is an over 70 year old stall (founded in 1941) located at Shilin Night Market which is just 5 minutes walk from Jiantan MRT station (so it is super convenient).

The pepper buns are freshly made and baked at the outdoor stall using a small charcoal fired tandoor style oven. The freshly baked cakes are tongue scathing hot - so be extra careful. The browned crust is crispy outside. 丞祖胡椒餅's crispy chewy crust is relatively thin.

Sweet aroma escapes with the steam when we bite open the crispy hot bun.

The bun is tightly packed with minced pork consisting of fat and lean meat, so it feels juicy to the bite. Be careful of hot runny juices running down your hands. The juicy pork ball tastes savoury sweet with distinct peppery notes. The green taste and crunch of scallion gives the pork bun another interesting layer of flavour.

丞祖胡椒餅 uses Black Pig 黑毛豬 in their buns for their extra flavour and tenderness. The minced pork is blended with over 10 different types of condiments, seasoning, herbs, spices, and of course, pepper. 

There are also lots of chopped scallion in the crusty bun. 丞祖胡椒餅 uses fresh premium fresh scallion 宜蘭三星蔥 from Yilan County.

  1. Wow Tony this must be the 5th or 6th article you wrote on Taiwanese Pepper Cake. As mentioned in my letter to you previously; you wrote that there is only a Mr Lim at Taman Ungku Tun Aminah Skudai that does the Kompia( the grand papa of the Taiwanese Pepper Cake ). Perhaps we can ask Mr Lim to pump up the steriod(more pork & scallions in his kompia) and we can have our own JB Pepper Cake :-)


I share hoping that everyone will have a good time but your experience may differ from mine. I love to know how you enjoyed yourself or if you didn't.
