Most of the snacks appear to be made fresh, the traditional way. There is a good variety, and prices are acceptable, although probably not the cheapest around. Quality, while probably above average, is however not exactly mind-blowing. But on the whole, still good enough for...More

Homemade Nyonya pastries, fresh and preservatives-free. However, price isn't significantly cheaper than stores in the city, about the same price.

The variety of nyonya kueh-muih still in abundant was indeed very heart warming. Cakes such as rempah udang, odeh-odeh, sticky rice cakes, popiah, dumplings & many more were simply enticing. The shop is still in a dwelling house but the back section has been used...More
