Local Delights: Ching Han Guan – Famous in Ipoh, Malaysia.

Dad came home one night with these biscuits after a trip to Ipoh. “They are famous in Ipoh.” He said. I was allowed to eat most of them as they get it fairly often due to Dad’s business travels. Good thing too, as these were yummy beyond belief.

They have a lovely crisp pastry on the outside that crumbles at the slightest touch. Besides the obvious meat floss and lotus paste in the biscuit, it also contains a salted egg yolk in it. Yum!

Beware of eating too many though, they are ‘heaty’ and can bring on sore throats!

I’d love to visit Ching Han Guan bakery at some point – from the sounds of it, they have more than just these that are famous and popular there.

Ching Han Guan was founded in Ipoh, Malaysia in 1949. To read more about Ching Han Guan, you can visit their website here.
