After reading some comments in a non Ipoh blogger's post (sorry cant recall who exactly..please reveal yourself)recently about how good Ipoh kaya kok is..really put me to shame. I was bred, born & multiplied here in the Pomelo & Bougainvilia City yet not knwing it's famous for puffy, fresh warmly baked Kaya Kok..besides the famous Nga choy Kai (Chicken & taugeh).
So I decided to take up the challenge to ask around. All i knew was there were a few KAYA kok stalls or shops around town ..to me they all taste "Nothing special" until finally majority of the people I asked, told me to go to this shop with the following address:
SIN ENG HEONG
No 64, Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri (jalan Clare),
Elaine Ng 012-4534596 or o5-2439659
Better call to order. U may need to wait if there are not enough fresh supply on the spot.
In the shop, I saw this uncle & auntie making fresh Kaya KOK.
The pictures spoke for themselve I hope.
Besides, the shop also sells other variety of biscuits:
My goodness..the kaya kok is really puffy, warm & nice (though a bit too sweet for me). It's 60sen per piece. Enjoying some with my beloved hubby now in front of the idiot box (TV).
i bought 1box with 10 pieces to try & as "recess" food for my kids.
So the next time you drop by Ipoh, make sure u don't miss it. It's somewhere near the famous "LO WONG NGA CHOY KAI".
