Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay

On CNY Day 3, we went to try out the Moh Teng Pheow nyonya kuih as it was not opened the previous time we were there. We bought one of each available kuih to eat onsite and ordered some back to eat at home. As they are freshly made without any preservatives, we are advised to eat them as soon as we can.

They also sell other food such as assam laksa and nyonya nasi lemak. I will definitely return to try their nasi ulam nyonya.

Bingka ubi, sri muka, kuih talam - MYR0.50 each for a small piece. Taste really rich with coconut milk (santan) and the green came from pandan leaves for the sri muka and kuih talam.

Abok abok sago (top) and rempah udang (bottom) wrapped in banana leaves - each costs MYR1.60 nett.

Rempah Udang - Sweet and Savoury

Rempah Udang - Glutinous Rice with Nonya Spicy Dried Shrimps (Hae Bee Hiam). It has a big shrimp in it.

Abok Abok Sago - made from palm sugar (gula Melaka), sago (tapioca pearls) and grated coconut.

Many people ordered in bulk from them for weddings and other occasions. For those who love to eat nyonya kuih must try this at least once.

  1. I love nyonya kuih sweet or savory.. so you ordered two pieces of each, they don't sell a lot of varieties but I guess most probably the production could not cope with the demand.. anyway, I am happy enough with bingka ubi and kuih talam or seri muka.. :)

    a big shrimp inside the rempah udang!! wow, how generous!!

    1. They have more types of nyonya kuihs than what I have shown here. You must visit here when you go to Penang since you love nyonya kuih.

  9. All the kuih you ordered are my fav....but I'm especially attracted to the abok-abok sago and rempah udang (the glutinous rice looks well softened).

  10. Got to remember this place, dunno where to get nice nyonya kuihs in Penang - bought some at a stall (so many people buying) at Prangin Mall, ended up throwing it all away, not nice at all. :(

    KL, I know that coffee shop at Paramount and a shop nearby, quite nice ones there...and of course, the more expensive ones at Lulu's & Nyonya Colours.

    1. Throw them all away? How sad. Yes, must eat kuih at this place when in Penang.

      The coffee shop at Paramount garden, if you are referring to O & S then the kuih is from Aroma Nyonya, my favourite nyonya kuih supplier that supplies to many places in KL and PJ.

  11. I must go there to try their rempah udang which is supposed to be the best. I am so curious to see their interior now that the production kitchen has been converted.

    1. You have to walk through their production kitchen to reach the small cafe dining area which is very nicely decorated. Do visit them when you go back to Penang next time.

  12. Mmm...I love the ones stuffed with prawns. It's so yummy! :D

  13. Good quality nonya kuih is hard to find. Even at Nonya Colours, only a few types are nice (talam, lapis), the rest just so-so.

    1. Wah, that means your standard for nyonya kuih is very, very high. I find most of the kuih in Nyonya Colours nice except for the angku.
