Still not sinful enough for ya? Go for the ULTIMATE Meat Floss/Lotus Paste/SALTED EGG YOLK combination … and be wowed instantly !!! (10 pcs @ RM20!)
Calling to order your biscuits is HIGHLY recommended, especially if you’re from other parts of the world (or universe) and a revisit to Ipoh is highly unlikely. But if you wanna bump into ze Motormouth, feel free to revisit again and again ….. =P
The pastry is not of the crispy kind, nor too crumbly. But rather flaky, just like those wedding biscuits (those yellow/pink ones with lotus paste filling), and the dense filling of meat floss + lotus paste sounds odd on paper, but complements each other perfectly. To the right balance of the sweet and the savoury.
With black sesame seeds to differentiate the KING of all biscuits, and the less caloric-laden salted egg yolk-less ones.
A break from the norms. If you’re already sick of the Heong Peng’s, the Chicken Biscuits, Kaya Puff (oh, but please do give them a try if you’re a first-timer here in Ipoh) and the Sat Keh Ma (cannot translate as it sounds REAL odd, but you’d have seen those sweet, sticky snacks in block, made from crunchy egg & flour, sweetened by sugar/molasses).
The other traditional, modernized and everything in between varieties …..
Ching Han Guan has a long, long standing history of baking delicious biscuits (Teochew style) for the masses, way before I was born. And it’s fine time they get their due recognition. Remember to call first and order your biscuits before walking in. Much alike the OTHER success story, Sin Eng Heong Kaya Puff, which is coincidentally, situated 3 streets away. Talk about competition.
