Just a little bit better…

This…

WeLove Bakery, Pedada

…used to be my girl’s favourite – they did have quite a lot of stuff that she enjoyed but of course, she can’t go for those anymore as they are all not gluten free….and I do know for a fact that my friend, Peter, gets his bread for his café by special order according to his specifications from this bakery too.

They have opened an outlet in the area of shops near my house, back to back with this Sarawak’s own fast food franchise there, right across the lane from this newly-opened bakery. We did drop by a couple of times, though not all that frequently. My girl went once to buy my birthday cake from there, my favourite Japanese baked cheesecake…

Well, it so happened that I popped into the place sometime ago and saw some ang ku kueh and deep-fried Chinese yam cake and I bought a few to try. They turned out to be really very nice, nicer than the ones that I would always buy from here but since then, I did not see them there anymore until that morning when I was walking  past after doing some business at the bank round the corner.

I’ve stopped buying the or koi from that other place since they increased the price from RM1.00 to RM1.10 but it was not so much because of that. The last time I had theirs, they seemed a little bit more wobbly than usual probably because of the addition of more flour, less yam. The ones here (RM1.20 each)…

Or koi

…did seem a lot nicer and I certainly would choose to buy these instead.

The ang ku kueh (RM1.20 each)…

…had a nicer texture, the skin, that is and I also thought the filling inside tasted a little bit better, just a bit. However, it looked smaller and it is more expensive by 20 sen. I am not so particular about the difference in price – if I am here, I will just buy the ones here and if I am there, I will grab the ones there.

I also bought one pulut panggang (RM1.40) to try that was very much longer than the RM1.00 or RM1.10 ones at the Malay kueh stalls but though it was quite nice – it had that much coveted panggang-ed fragrance, it was not all that lemak, nowhere near those that we called Kate panggang which, unfortunately, aren’t that regularly nor easily available anymore these days.

I must say that I am delighted that there is another place here now that is near my house where I can buy some nice tea-time delights to enjoy.

WeCare Bakery, Pedada outlet (2.311098, 111.846125) is located at the corner shoplot where this coffee shop once was, back to back with the Sugar Bun outlet in that area to the left of Delta Mall, Jalan Pedada (now Jalan Dr Wong Soon Kai).

  1. Definitely, it is very convenient to have nice eateries and bakeries near to home. I like to eat ang ku kueh with mung bean fillings. The ones you bought here – do they have mung bean fillings too?

    I only like mung bean though I’ve seen yam paste and peanut filling as well but not here – only mung bean.

  2. I like Or koi and ang ku kueh provided the angku kueh is not thick and chewy. Japanese cheese cake also my favourite, love the soft cotton like texture.

    The Japanese baked cheese cake here is very nice but it is getting to be more and more expensive. The ang ku here is really soft, very fine.

  3. I like to eat Or Koi or Cai Tao Kueh (Fried Carrot Cake), yummy snacks

    We have kim poo (pumpkin) but not carrot cake, dunno why. Koay khak or fried carrot cake also not common here.

  4. When stayed in BDC, I used to buy my bread and stuff from WeCare. But no longer so since I moved to my current home.

    I didn’t know they sell kuehs too?? Or only in Sibu??

    Or Koi must be crispy at the sides for me. I don’t fancy those thick wobbly type. Hardly fried.

    At this particular ooutlet. I do know that at some, including the one in Kuching, they have the Foochow ma ngee (horse’s hoof). Wobbly or koi means too much flour, not good.

  5. I so love ang ku kueh! My late grandma used to heat the leftover ang ku kueh in a pan. It tasted even better, warm with a crust.

    Never tried it like that – will do so next time. I just put in the steamer, bring the water to boil and steam for a short while and turn off the heat. Must not over-steam or they will go all limp and flat.

  6. RM5.70 certainly is a reasonable price for a slice of such a chunky cheesecake! 🙂

    It was RM10 for one whole oval-shaped cake, not very big…but last I saw, it was RM17.00 already. Sighhhhh!!!
