Can’t complain…

One thing that is severely lacking in Sibu is the availability of good nyonya kuihs. Yes, we do have the Malay kuihs and the Chinese-made ones but unfortunately, most of the time, only the name is the same and though they may even look the same, they are usually not worth the calories, not at all.

I find the ones sold at some stalls at the shopping malls in KL quite nice actually like these ang koo kuih, for instance…

…but as far as I can recall, they are, by no means, cheap and in comparison, the nyonya kuihs in Kuching are a lot nicer, just that you will have to know where to go to and buy. I hear they have a place at one of the major shopping complexes in the city that sell really good selections of the nyonya favourites but I’ve been told that they do not come cheap either.

Well, the other day, I spotted these at a coffee shop near my house…

Ang koo 1

Gosh! They’re not even red in colour. I suppose technically, they should be called chay koo kuih instead…

Ang koo 2

But I would say they are not too bad really. The skin may be a bit too sticky and rubbery making it kind of hard to chew and swallow but on the whole, it is all right and they’re around twice the size of the ones in KL and furthermore, there is enough filling inside…

Ang koo 3

…though not quite enough for me. It would be much nicer if they could be a bit more generous than that.

But at RM1.00 for two, I guess there is no reason for me to complain and as they always say, beggars can’t be choosers.
