Some Ipoh Famous Snacks

Festive season or not, I still need to queue up when it comes to buying these snacks in Ming Yue confectionery.  Mooncake season is over and long gone and I thought there would not be a queue but I was wrong.  I think this shop is IN business...

Now I am "smarter".. before I go, I will call them to ask whether the "Groundnut Sweets" (direct translation-Far Sun Tong)  are available or not... otherwise the half hour drive to this place will be worthless... But one has to be patient when ringing them up... sometimes the calls will go unanswered... 

Since we have the "urge" of eating these snacks, we took the trouble to come by here and waited... and waited.... for our turn....
 When we reached the front line, what we wanted were sold out...
We had to wait for another "batch" to come out...
 While waiting for our favourite, we bought these first...
Kaya puffs at 60 sen each... fresh from the oven!
The next batch has arrived..
These are groundnut sweets that is worth waiting for...
Hot and Crunchy!
Supergirl packing for my orders....
Half kilo cost RM11.50 
And after all the wait, I ended up buying more than I really wanted to... 
That is a very bad habit of mine...
And so ... there it is.... tempting me at every hour...
 I think I know why there are always queues for these...
Firstly, they are very fresh and crunchy..
Secondly, they are not sugary sweet...
Thirdly, they have a saltish taste...
In summary... one can get addicted to it easily!


  1. Is this the best in Ipoh? Looks good and sounds good though, since fresh out of the oven :D

  2. Owh, I love groundnut sweet. If I start munching, it will be non stop. But very sweet. Kriuk!!!!...Kriuk!!! sound.

  3. I used to like to eat this but now old jor not keen jor

  4. My teeth are not strong enough to eat this crunchy far sang tong. Good that your teeth are strong enough so do enjoy eating them to the fullest! :)

  5. oh, i LOVE all those traditional sweets!! "sat kei mah" is one of my favorite, and recently because of watching the TVB series "Brother Keeper" i kind of craving for the peanut candy also, hahaha!! that kaya puff, so big and only RM0.60, cheap!! :)

  6. I love sat keh mah! Really very addictive one!

  7. Yum!! You are like me, Claire!

  8. Not quite my favouite. Don't mind the one made of crushed peanut... Old man, not into things that are kind of hard.

  9. ken: crunchy and not so hard.. cos less sugar..

    irene: yes, one thing they are not so sweet..

  15. There, my post on it:

  16. sharon: real foodie!

    stp: i like it cos it is sweet and saltish a bit..

  17. ling: kaya puffs ok.. sak kei ma, not sure cos i didnt try that...

    stp: oh, that is different.. that is from Bidor and it is very commercialized area.. if want to taste nicer ones, then must go to another place near the market... very fast sold out daily...

  18. This shop is so laku. Reminds me of Penang's Him Heang where customers beeline till the main road just to buy the biscuits. I like what you posted. Nice to eat with coffee.

  19. Mmmm...... M'sia seems to have a lot of these snacks. I always see people buying them.

  20. will keep on snacking and snacking and snacking...then you will start coughing. :p


Thank you, readers!
