Sin Eng Heong’s Famous Kaya Puff, IpohJuly 8, 2008 | 43,227 views
Anyway, I’m still stressed out from the drive to oblivion (somehow the images of the underworld in Hellboy II struck my mind, but rest assured it’s not THAT bad). And haven’t sort my photos yet. Probably tomorrow I’ll share my experience staying at Sg. Klah Hot Spring Resort, and of course, some of the food we ate along the way.
For now, be contented with something I’ve wanted to share with you for a long, long time. =)
Lady in Red : Which one you want? This, this, this, or that?
Lady with handbag : Ish, hmmm …. (pondering).
I’ve always been a fan of Sin Eng Heong‘s kaya puffs, and various pastries, from mini mooncakes to lou por peng (wife’s biscuits). Mum had been buying them since years ago, before Ho Chak (a food programme in Malaysia courtesy of 8TV) and various media started raving about their kaya puff.
Fresh from the oven, fragrant and crispy delights ….
Previously operating two doors away, they moved to this new location, and revamped the ambience, albeit increasing the price by a minimal margin. However at a mere RM0.60 per piece (5 April 2010 – Now it’s RM0.70 per piece), the puff may look mini, but in fact packed with flavours from the awesome kaya (egg jam) fillings, and the flaky, crispy-when-hot pastry.
A box of 5 delicious kaya puffs to satisfy those cravings for something sweet and flaky.
Fragrant, and sweet egg-licious “kaya” filling
Perfect when consumed hot, or fresh from the oven, the puff retain their crispiness even after several hours. Some may find the kaya filling a tad too sweet, but for me, it’s perfect. Pair them with a piping hot cup of frothy milk tea, or white coffee, and tea time ain’t boring no more. 😉
There’s no denying their pulling power, ya?
Situated within the vicinity of the old Foh San Dimsum, Lou Wong Ayam Tauge, Funny Mountain Soya Bean/Tau Fu Fa, Yin Yau Kui Hakka Mee (relocated to New Paris opposite the road), Xin Quan Fang’s Curry Noodle, Aun Kheng Lim’s Salted Chicken and various other popular eateries, this area smacked in the middle of Ipoh town is an ideal spot for food crawl, for locals and tourists alike.
On weekends and public holidays, the acclaimed pastries may run out fast, therefore give them a call before you go, to avoid leaving empty-handed and sour-faced. v_v But their other pastries are equally nice, and should satiate your cravings for some snacks.
