Make up my mind…

I liked their bak chang (glutinous rice meat dumplings) and also their sio bee before as well as their kolo mee when they were at their former place and the other day, I got to try the latter two at their current location.

Well, I happened to be around there again the other morning and I decided I would want to try their bak chang

…first before I made up my mind whether to buy any home or not.

I asked for the big one (RM5.00)…

…the one with the salted egg yolk inside…

…and a bit of meat, not a lot but at least, there was meat unlike some around here that I had had the displeasure of eating. I also tasted a bit of the shitake mushroom as I was eating but what I loved most of all was the glutinous rice – not undercooked and hard and not overcooked and soggy and over-sticky, just perfect.

I enjoyed it a lot and decided to buy some home for everyone to enjoy but I asked for the smaller ones (RM3.00) as the ladies in the house are not particularly fond of salted egg in their  bak chang.

In case anyone is interested, the ones here are nice too, 20 sen cheaper for the big ones with salted egg, RM4.80 each and also RM3.00 each for the small ones, much nicer than others that I have tried, like these, for instance.

  1. I am one that dislike salted egg yolk or orh nee in my bak chang. My favourite is just the normal bak chang with shitake mushroom and meat only. I also like the Hakka Chang with peanuts and meat.

    My favourite is nyonya chang but there is none here so we will just have to go for the good Hokkien chang instead. I think there are nicer ones in Kuching, lots of meat, some place at Nanas Road or around there and the fat girl’s stall somewhere opposite Heritage.

  2. Now i have craving for bak chang again! It’s all your fault! Lolx.

    Easy to get good ones over at your side. I miss the nyonya ones, can’t get them here.
