Hokkien Pastry from Yong Peng....

On a lighter note, I know Yong Peng did produce a lot of pastries and bicsuits but I didn't know they also famous for 'heong peh'. Well, I really don't know which term to use to describe this pastry, whether its kompia, don't know what 'sou' in canto, pia as my Indonesians colleagues called it and etc. They sold it at one of the express bus rest stops near the NS highway.

One of the stalls there
The good thing is they baked the pastry there and it's fresh from the oven. I sample all their three flavours, lotus, yam and 'tau sar' and they were really good. Anyway, its still fresh and hot. Besides that, they also sold siew pow and pineapple tarts.

I bought all the three flavours and even after a few days, the pastries were still nice, though not as crunchy as before when it was fresh from oven. OK, now I got more options to buy 'heong peh' , besides Ipoh and Penang.
