MY2012 - Tanjung Piandang’s Famous Chai Kueh

Chai Kueh or Vegetable Dumpling is a typical Chinese snack that is popular among the Teochews. The skill in making Chai Kueh lies in the skin as to achieve the soft, chewy and translucent-like sheen.



One of the famous places to have Chai Kueh is at Tanjung Piandang, Perak. More specifically, at Kedai Kopi Lee King.



While some may argue that the Chai Kuehs in Jawi, Penang are more famous, I prefer Tanjung Piandang’s version. At least, the skin is much thinner.



Besides the Ku Chai (Chinese chive) version, Lee King also offers Chai Kuehs with Mang Kuang (jicama) …



… and Orh (yam) as fillings. Definitely my first time seeing and tasting one with yam!!



The verdict, I still reckon that the Chai Kuehs in Taiping taste better!! If those in Jawi and Tanjung Piandang could make the skin even thinner, I am sure they will be as good too!!



But, if we were to put those “famous” claims aside, I think the actual highlight of my meal at Kedai Kopi Lee King is the Orh Ni (yam paste). Yummy!!
