Him Heang, Penang…TASTY! I want a lifetime supply!

Apart from assam laksa and char kway teow, Penang is famous for its tau sar pheah. Although Ghee Hiang was the pioneer, Him Heang is now the standard bearer. Traditional Chinese biscuits are of course a very personal matter. For what is ostensibly a simple concept—you know, biscuits—Him Heang has built a tyranny of choice.

Tambun biscuits or Tau sar pheah is by far the strongest part of the menu: there is nothing I sampled here that I wouldn’t recommend. Rather compact and dense but still flaky, they taste like a mung bean and butter party in my mouth; each ball full of loveliness and crave-starting. I NEED MORE!

It’s good value for money. I’d buy these for my grandma, if she was still around. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
