Something new to start off a great 2010!
In a blink of an eye, 2009 has come to a close and 2010 has begun! I am kicking off the new year with our Penang’s very own famed Tau Sar Pneah and more!
There are several well known brands of Tau Sar Pneah in Penang. The popular outlets that most outstation visitors would visit is Ghee Hiang and Him Heang. However, there are also some less touristy places; among them is the halal Eaton Kuih Centre in Batu Lanchang!
Like most other Tau Sar Pneah, the delicate treat in Eaton is made from vegetable oil and comes with sweetened mung bean paste wrapped in flaky light golden color pastry. The filling has much lighter taste of fried onions compared to other outlets.
Besides Tau Sar Pneah, the chewy and sticky Nyonya Ang Koo made of glutinous rice flour is also a huge draw. This traditional Chinese delicacy available in two sizes comes with neat and pretty imprints conveniently packed in boxes.
I bought a packet of mix mini Ang Koo which offers a mixture of red and green ones. The red version has filling of smooth sweetened mung bean paste. On the other hand, the green ones made with fragrance of pandan leaves come with palm sugar coconut filling.
The freshly made Ang Koo is best eaten on the same day, however leftovers sitting around in the refrigerator can be served again steamed or pan-fried. I personally like it pan-fried with slightly crispy edges.
Eaton is well known for its Nasi Kunyit with Chicken Curry. The yellow glutinous rice with two pieces of chicken curry is priced at RM4 per set. The thick curry gravy is delicious with finely grounded spices and herbs.
The outlet also offers traditional packages to mark baby’s first month. The Full Moon Gift Packages feature a selection of yellow glutinous rice, chicken curry, dyed red-colored eggs and Ang Koo for the celebration of the precious little one.
Head over to Eaton for the many choices of snack and kuihs. Their two pork free outlets on Jalan Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim are facing directly opposite each other. Click here for the Map Location.
