Simple, but gorgeous look! Wish they're my breakfast of tomorrow...

Oh I'm a little disappointed, I wish there was a recipe for these coconut tarts. They look great. Your city walk article was really interesting, I have a burning desire to eat my way around asia now.

Robyn, I usually buy my coconut tarts, egg tarts and other pastries from Ng Kee Cake Shop, about a few doors away from Tai Tung Dim Sum which opens at night.

Is this the inferior version of the pepper biscuits you mentioned?

Robyn

Hi J2Kfm - Yep that's the one. No offence intended but I think the quality pales in comparison. It's a matter of taste though -- to each their own.

Mark -- there's a sort-of recipe in the brochure from the shop. Perhaps once we're back to Malaysia I'll post it. But I'm unlikely to try it myself. Baking is definately not my forte, esp any baking involving pastry or crusts.

Oh my, this coconut tart from his bakery - I've been having them since the early-70s. In those days, we can still get them in the late-afternoons.

Hi Robyn,

Great piece! My favourite Mee Goreng is still the former Edgecumbe Road hawker who has since relocated to Gurney Drive Food Court near the the 7-11 store.

Also wanted to let you know that visitors to Penang can have an easier time locating the famous hawkers with a free Penang Street Food iPhone app which is available on the App Store.

Cheers!
