MELBOURNE | Accountant turned baker Raymond Tan opened Raya a few months back, bang in the middle of stage four restrictions. A bold time to open a CBD based food business indeed.

At his cafe/cake shop, Raymond sells an assortment of sweet and savoury delights, many of which are influenced by his Malaysian heritage.

The signature kueh, which are colourful glutinous desserts that are common in Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia, come in a variety of flavours, and rotate each month. My favourite is the ondeh ondeh, a green pandan coloured rice cake infused with gula melaka (palm sugar) and covered with coconut.

There’s also thongs like Ribena butterpound cake, Hojicha chiffon, and ginat New York style cookies.

Savour wise, I love the wonderfully flaky chicken curry hand pie. It’s a buttery shortcrust pasty filled with spiced Malaysian chicken and potato curry, and a hard boiled egg. So good.

You can also get a few kinds of rolls, like spam and egg (a throwback to Raymond’s childhood), and other pies like beef Bourgogne.⁣

For drinks it’s a selection of hot and cold coffees, teas, and other lattes. Iced teh tarik is always a winner in my book.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
