I'm a little plump rabbit who lives in Penang. I hop around with a camera round my neck snapping photos of Penang and foodstuffs. If you meet a rabbit like that in Penang, that should be me ; )

Famous Seremban siew-bao (barbecued pork pastry)

I wen't to a nearby Chinese pastry stall today to buy some Seremban 'siew-bao'...
I simply love it. This food is made popular in Seremban. It is made of sweet 'char-siew' or chinese barbecued pork wrapped in a crispy pastry into a dumpling shape. I looks like the bake rendition of 'char-siew bao'...
I also bought some Portugese egg tarts. Unlike the Hong Kong egg tart, the egg custard in the Portugese tart is baked till golden brown around the edges. I guess that's what makes it look so appealing. Taste real good!
