Eat and Drink Melaka: On the Spot Baking and Selling @ Jonker Street

Biscuits, bakery, kuih and confectionary is always fascinating to me. The combination of many or few simple ingredients combines to produce such aromatic delicacies. Not to mention how each of them comes with unique cultural influences. The Jonker Street in Melaka is one place that is so culturally rich and historically preserved. The previous post shows some murals on Jonker Street in conjunction with the National Chinese Cultural Festival of Malaysia.

Somewhere at a junction along Jalan Hang Jebat before entering the Jonker Street is the Poh Keon Enterprise and the aromatic scent might awaken any groggy head.

Instant baking and fresh from oven, these little devils make really good compliment to a nice cup of tea. Fluffy, light and crispy layers with sweet paste fillings made from common yet simple ingredients like green bean and winter melon.

They are really generous with samples so you can try every bit of everything before deciding what to buy. These traditional confectionaries are unfortunately without English names. It could make things difficult for those who don’t read Chinese. And yes, I am referring to yours truly here. Sigh….

      I use to think that only penang has it too…apparently the taste isn’t that much different. The key is definately freshness I think…it is good if it is fresh.🙂
