Cute pig-shaped pork buns sold for S$3.50 at Hougang coffee shop since 2014 at least

Too cute to eat.

Some people have weird obsessions like eating food shaped after cute animals or cartoons.

Pig-shaped buns

And if you happen to be one of those people, you might be interested in these pork buns from Seng Huat Coffee House:

These are piglet buns (S$3.50), which are pig-shaped buns with raisins for eyes, filled with a slice of tender marinated pork chop, a slice of cheese as well as chilli sauce and mayonnaise.

If you're looking for a complete meal, you can get the original pork bun set (S$5) which comes with two half-boiled eggs and a cup of coffee.

These handmade buns are prepared upon order, so do expect to wait for a while if you're getting your hands on the piglet buns.

Instagram-friendly food

While it may seem coincidental, these piglet buns were not specially made for the year of the pig.

In fact, photos of the piglet buns have been on Instagram all year round since 2014.

Other offerings

If you're not up for some pork chops but still want to not miss out the cute pig-shaped buns, you may want to try the crispy chicken bun (S$3.50) or the ham and egg bun (S$3).

Or in case you want something sweet, you can't go wrong with UFO buns (S$1.30), a soft bun filled with butter and kaya.
