The cutest little piggie ever (Ipoh biscuits shop)

No kid can resist the shop. Is non-halal, for sure. It is located near the Lou Wong Chicken rice shop road. Business is brisk because bus loads of tourists cannot resist picking up some goodies and also souvenirs for the relatives back home.

The face tells you that he must have one each of the 12 Chinese zodiac signs animals plus all the dinosaurs. Each little animal is RM2, very much like mooncake and filled with red bean paste. Taste? Blek. We still have one, which still hasn’t grow fungus after like, a month?

There are lots and lots of varieties of traditional biscuits. We bought two each of most of them but only one is really worth mentioning. I am not sure what it is call but it tastes like ‘kai chai peng’, flat, thin, crispy biscuits with some five spice powder fillings.

They sell all sorts of tambun pneah. The above is the sambal udang kering flavoured, which is spicy dried shrimp. Nothing to shout about but taste ok. Penang tambun pneah is the best.

It may not taste delicious but it is too cute to resist. I have a little piggy with so much details, it even has a butt hole just below the wriggly tail! Serious. Because the fillings is black, it is too obscene to be shown online. 😛

    Dear Food Haven,

    I’ve just wrote a comment on Foodaholic’s site, commenting that her site is one of the few that put in extra effort in putting up nice photos of the food. Now that I’ve seen yours, I’d like to say that you, too … deserve a thumbs up. Keep it up … I am keeping tab so that when I go up north, I have your site to refer to…… Tim.
