Salted Egg Yolk Pastry (Ham Dan So, 鹹蛋酥, 咸蛋酥)

MYR1.90 nett for one. I bought this pastry from a stall in a local neighbourhood coffee shop.

The crust looks thick but it is not as can be seen below.

After it has been cut, I can clearly see that the crust is not thick at all. There is a huge amount of lotus paste fillings and one salted egg yolk in it. It tastes and looks better than the one I bought from Esquire Kitchen which is so much more expensive at MYR3.80 nett each. The one I bought from Penang has thicker crust.

Another look at its fillings. I ate half and gave the other half to my spouse.

  1. :O RM1.90 ONLY? Wow. This is a steal I guess, especially since it tastes as good as it looks.

  5. For RM1.90, the filling is quite solid. Worth buying. I tried the one from TK but I don't like it.

  6. Looked big to me. And the filling. So generous. I love a crispy and flaky crust, not too thick.
