Hot! Taiwan Specialty Bakery Sunny Hills reopens at Raffles Hotel with new Durian Product Offerings

Sunny Hills

SunnyHills, best known for their Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes, has reopened its doors at Raffles Hotel. Previously located at Raffles Hotel Arcade on the third floor, SunnyHills has relocated to Raffles Hotel, 3 Seah Street, facing famous Hainanese chicken rice shops.

SunnyHills’ products are baked from scratch, starting with SunnyHills’ “earth” pineapples that are non-GMO, organically grown and sourced directly from farmers to ensure sustainability. Without using any fake ingredients in any of their products, they proudly coin this a Taste Of Sunshine.

Coinciding with the official reopening, SunnyHills has also introduced FORBIDDEN, as part of their World Project. SunnyHills’ World Project shares not only SunnyHills’ belief in giving back to the Land and its People through sustainable goals, but also their philosophy by working with partners across the world who share the same passion for the environment and ensures that their farmers do not use pesticides or preservatives, promising only the most honest products.


With that in mind, SunnyHills partnered up with durian plantations in Pahang, Malaysia and executive pastry chef Danny Ho to create FORBIDDEN. Danny Ho is a Malaysian pastry chef who specializes in French pastry, but utilizing Durians. Amongst many other distinctions, Danny through his durian creations, was honored as the PATA Face of the Future in 2016 – an award given to an exceptional ‘rising star’ in the travel industry – and received a Gold with Distinction Award in Pastry Professional Showpiece in the Hong Kong International Culinary Classic 2011.

FORBIDDEN aims to bring everyone on an unforgettable adventure by featuring the bold, imaginative flavors from the durians and they honor the durians by creating only the best durian experience that they know. This is SunnyHills’ first tropical, non-pineapple products to be sold since they started selling the Pineapple Cakes in 2009.

Durian rolls

Some of FORBIDDEN products must try is the D24 Durian Rolls which is a finely rolled Japanese langue de cookie that is baked with all-natural ingredients and premium D24 durians. The Mao Shan Wang Durian Roulade is a Pandan-Kaya infused flavored Castella cake that is filled with generous amounts of Mao Shan Wang. One whole mid-sized Mao Shan Wang durian can only make one Mao Shan Wang Durian Roulade. Non-durian lovers will be able to enjoy the Mao Shan Wang Durian Roulade as the durian aroma doesn’t leave its typical, strong aroma in the air or in your breath. You will be able to taste the goodness of the durians as it melts in your mouth, leaving you yearning for another bite.

To enjoy a lighter taste of the durian, have it as an ice-cream cake, or it can be consumed immediately upon opening. For durian lovers who would like to enjoy the Mao Shan Wang durian, the cake should be defrosted about 7 – 10minutes before consumption.
