Ham Chim Peng

Ham Chim Peng (the one on the left with sesame on top) is also known as Savoury Chinese Five Spice Doughnut because it is a flat deep-fried dough with a chinese five spice swirl inside. The one on the right is the sweet version without the 5 spice but with red bean fillings (MYR1 each).

The ham chim peng is thick.

The sweet version has thin dough pastry with red bean fillings.

Two small bowls of sweet red bean soup and sweet green (mung) bean soup.

All the deep fried food

Kap Chung (sweet glutinous rice with dough around it) and Ma Keok (horse's hooves)

Lai Lai Desserts shop. I ate here more than a year ago.

  1. Ohhhhhh??? They look like that, the traditional ones? Never seen them before...and never came across the sweet version either just those savoury ones that look like deep fried western cinnamon rolls. My missus will not like the sweet ones with filling, I think - red bean paste makes here head giddy, dunno why.

    The red bean and mun bean soups are cooling - great to have those to go with the heaty deep fried stuff. We have the horse's hoofs here...but never seen the kap chung before as well.

    You have not been here since over a year? My! My! Hope you did not do that for my sake... Wink! Wink! LOL!!!

    1. P.S.
      I sure would love dropping by places like this, not those Taiwan dessert places, thank you very much. Young people seem to go for those.

  6. My favourite is ma keok, then yau char kwai, kap chung, hum chim peng sweet version and pain version. All these I will eat with piping hot kopi o. But before I buy, I will first take a look at the big wok of oil. If its black, I won't buy any that day!

    1. Eat with hot coffee? That's an idea, never tried before. Black oil not healthy.

  9. Interesting! There's one near my place too which only opens in the morning, selling all sorts of kueh.

    There's one type I've only seen in KL though - it's made of Japanese potato (?) and regular sweet potato with nien gao (the CNY sticky cake) in the middle. So it's a layer of purple sweet potato, and a layer of orange sweet potato sandwiching a thin layer of nien gao. Quite good but expensive at RM 2.10 per small piece (about 1/8 the size of my palm).

    1. The deep fried nien gao are not sold with ham chim peng most of the time. The deep fried nien gao are sold with deep fried banana, deep fried chempedak, deep fried sweet potatoes, deep fried banana balls. I would say they are different categories of deep fried food.

  10. Oh, there's only one missing from the loot here....the one that has a slit in the middle (with sesame seeds and slightly sweeter in taste). What do you call those?

    2. Ok, just went to take a look at your photo in your link. That one is an usual one. Not commonly sold in these kind of stalls. I have not seen it before. I wonder does it taste any different from ma keok since I am guessing that it is made from the same dough and with sesame too. Actually all of them are made from the same dough almost but some are a bit sweeter like ma keok is sweeter compared to the dough of the sweet ham chim peng with red bean fillings.

    3. I mean that one is an unusual one.

  13. I love them too and they go well with my black coffee! I always have headache with Salak South area as the traffic is heavy and the streets a bit narrow.

    1. You are right about the narrow streets but the heavy traffic depends on the time of the day.
