Chai Kueh

I may be biased but i think the best Teochew chai kueh can only be found in Sungai Bakap :D

There are three authentic Jawi Chai Kueh outlets in Sungai Bakap:

#1 - the original one, opposite a roast duck/pork shop, near Jln Badak Mati/Jln Besar intersection. Also quite near the police station.

#2 - the newer one (relatively speaking), same row as Ambank

#3 - another newer one, somewhat opposite #2 and next to a roast duck/pork shop.

This one is from #2, the one in the same row as Ambank, near the older mosque.

There are other dim sum items as well, but most people go there just for the chai kueh!
