Heong Peng (香饼) means fragrant pastries in English. These pastries, which resemble slightly flattened balls, contain a sweet sticky filling made from malt and shallots, which is covered by a flaky baked crust and garnished with sesame seeds on the surface. They are available in many stores around Ipoh and most of the time, this is a MUST BUY item on tourists' list as souvenirs.
Yee Hup Biscuits was established by Mr. Yee Ah Lek and his beloved wife Madam Wong Chin Haw (founder) as a family business and they started operating their first bakery at their home. It is now very famous and as a local brand it sells the biscuit all the way to other countries. They are also available in other parts of Malaysia and Singapore.
It is now no 2 Heong Peng in my list. The skin of the pastries is crispy and filling a bit sticky. The stickiness is the only thing I don't like. I got the traditional packaging for RM8 with all pastries in one bag. It does sell the pastries in each individual packaging, you just have to add RM1 to it.
