Nyonya Kuih


In Penang there is ineed plenty of street food that you can find. As a Penang Kia, my cousin share with me this place as one of his favourite Classic Nyonya Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay in Penang. He would always buy it whenever he come back to Penang during Chinese New Year. He rated it as one of the best Classic Nyonya Kuih in Penang.

I only discover this 4 years ago and noob die me, but it is actually quite hidden. Also quite well known now to many tourist. This place had been operating since 1933 and I certainly believe this would be the 3rd generation holding the helm for this place.

The kuih are made fresh every day. There are many classic types of nyonya kuih available with the likes like:

    1. Angku kuih
    2. Kaya Kuih
    3. Huat Kuih
    4. Kuih Jaging (corn)
    5. Kuih Kacang Merah (red bean)
    6. Kuih Ketayap 
    7. Kuih Kosui
    8. Kuih Lapis
    9. Kuih Bingka Ubi
    10. Kuih Talam
    11. Kuih Seri Muka
    12. Onde – Onde
    13. Kuih Salat
    14. Kuih bugis
    15. Rempah Udang

Many others also. easily more than 25 types available daily. Happy hunting.

Price certainly is not cheap as they are higher priced and also smaller portion. For the taste itself I love it. Classic, fragrant and filled with flavoures.

If you are looking for one of the best Nyoya Kuih in Penang, this is one of the place to look for.

It is not easy to find nice Nyonya Kuih maker in KL. I was introduce to this home made nyonya kuih by @Kuih.Co that had only recently starting off their business during this CMCO period. They made their kuih in the morning and quality of freshness is there. I order 2 batch of kuih, one for my bro in law family and one for my parents. The gift pack turns out to be pretty good! They are made fresh in the morning.

you can watsapp them to place order and get menu from them too. +60 17-685 7898

Kuih dadar is good. The brown sugar coconut is not too sweet yet fragrant to my liking. Skin not too thick as how I like it.

Kuihco (6)

Kuih Talam is equally good too.

Kuihco (7)

Ohhh i must say, I am a big fan of onde onde and this is reallllllly goood! A bit that will burst into your mouth with its gula melaka. do not even think of cutting into half, it had to be one ball 1 mouth! If they can reduce slightly on the sweetness then perfecto!

Kuih lapis is like the wobbly “boink boink” version.

Kuihco (9)

Kuih Kochi is spot on. Love the stickiness of it yet the pandan fragrant of the kuih is quite prominent.

One of my favourite classic , Rempah udang : not many can it right. this is just nice.

Kuihco (12)

my dad’s favourite. Ang Ku kuih. Whenever he buy nyonya kuih, this is a must have. Just slightly thicker to my liking.

Overall, it is a great platter to have and with such nice display and quality of kuih at this price, I am appreciating this. One of a nyonya kuih delivery to your door step in KL or PJ.

Been coming to Mid Valley couple of times recently, but not during the past weekend as I drove pass by the amount of traffic into Mid Valley is ‘SIAU’.. I guess this is due to a lot of people now doing last minute Chinese New Year shopping already.

As usual, its always a headache for me to think of a place to eat in MV not till me and my friend was walking around and scouted this place as I remember I ta pau the nyonya kuih before which is not bad. Since most of the time I walk pass by its always pack with people and decided to give it a try.

They hae a fix menu on the ala cart range yet the choices of Nyonya kuih are quite alot.

The day when I went there was like a dead place cuz it was very early which is around 6pm.

If you do come across of cooking a meal at home, all you need to do is to grab one of this pre pack curry sauce to buy back add in some water, boil and cook it and you are ready to makan~

I just love my drink ‘Sour plum with asam’ as sure taste like pure blend of the sour plum and the asam is to make the drink even more sour till my jaw bone there so numb. Just love this drink as that day was quite hot and it’s a thirst quencher for me.

Do not know what to choose in the limited menu offered by them , so I opted one of my favourite in list to give it a try, ‘Yellow Curry Laksa’ which sounds unique but with the name on top it did not disappoint me, with the vermicelli flooded with the thick laksa soup and added on with the mint leaf just pulls out the taste and with the minimal chili I top onto, turns out to be quite spicy yet satisfying. RM8.90

Then my friend order ‘Nasi Lemak Rendang Chicken’. When it was serve, the first part of nasi lemak already pass the test, with some coconut smell is there when it was serve. The rending curry turns out to be not bad too. Mild spicy level, a bit thick curry gravy yet not the type of using curry powder that cook the chicken meat soak the flavor in. RM8.90

The kuih turns out to be not bad but I find it slightly over price maybe its because under MV but no complain with the taste of it. RM0.90-RM3

Overall, its not a bad place to dine in at with the price tag on the food. Do not mind for a revisit.
