Balestier was a sugarcane plantation developed by Joseph Balestier. He was an American who arrived in Singapore in 1834 and initially served as the United States consul. In the early 1900s, Dr Sun Yat Sen stayed in a villa in Balestier (now the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall) several times. The bungalow in Balestier was used as the regional headquarters for the revolutionary activities of Tongmenghui and Kuomintang. Today Balestier is associated with lighting shops and Tau Siah Piah, a traditional Chinese pastry stuffed with bean paste. 603 Tau Sar Piah is one of the many tau sar piah shops in Balestier. This small family owned traditional bakery has brought us much delight and many many calories.
