This is another one of the three authentic Jawi Chai Kueh in Sungai Bakap.
There are three good ones in Sungai Bakap/Jawi:
#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 (this one), somewhat opposite #2 and next to a roast duck/pork shop.
This is from #3.
The standard, must have, Chinese chives filling chai kueh :)
A closer look.
Another popular filling is sengkuang/jicama. Different, but still very good. I like both.
This one was with pumpkin filling. First time for me. I guess it will take time to get used to this new flavour but I appreciate the effort they put in to create new flavours.
I also ordered yam/taro paste (Or Nee). Not very good though but I was comparing it to the one in Ding Tai Fung, which wasn't very fair at all :D
Fried cellophane noodle (Hokkien/Teochew - tanghoon, Cantonese - Dongfun)
This is the shop, which is just somewhat opposite the first one I reviewed. There are a total of three chai kueh restaurants in Jawi - the first and original one, and these two relatively new ones.
Kedai Makan Hwa Aik is just next to Restoran Soon Lee Hou.
However, I didn't like both the roast duck and roast pork at all.
The duck skin was completely soft and the meat wasn't very flavorful. The roast duck's skin was quite crunchy but the fat and lean part weren't up to par with the best I have tried.
