Best eaten warm

Continuing from yesterday's post:
Just when we thought we were done with food, I saw the queue outside Nam Heong at the Starling Mall. This Nam Heong is from Ipoh and is not the Nam Heong Chicken Rice from Jalan Sultan which has a branch in Desa Sri Hartamas.

Nam Heong Egg Tarts - MYR3.20 nett for 1 and MYR17.90 nett for 6 so I bought 6 as takeaway.

We ate two on the spot when they are still warm and the pastry layers are so crispy and taste like cream crackers which is very nice. Later when we were home, we ate another two and the taste is so different, no longer as tasty as when eaten warm. The cream crackers taste is no longer there when the egg tart is no longer warm and the pastry crust is not so crispy anymore. So it is better to eat them warm on the spot.

Signature Chicken Sou - MYR3.20 nett for 1 and MYR17.90 nett for 6 but I bought 2 only (MYR6.40 nett) because I don't want to spend too much here. Quite nice - the sesame taste stands out.

  3. That is such a thick crust. I'd eat them warm too based on your recommendation.
