Koi Kee Bakery, Macau…you can bet your last dollar on the crunchy peanut candy and almond cookies

If you have a sweet tooth for pastries, Koi Kei Bakery will be a kick in the snackpants for you. This purveyor of cookies, candies is probably one of the few things Macau is famed for apart from gambling.

The crunchy peanut candy is a winner! It is a frivolous thing with no other purpose than to delight, and that’s why it’s so wonderful. There is a pleasing lightness and truly brittle so it breaks when you bite it. They’re crunchy, they’re crispy, they’re almost flaky and they’re truly addictive. The delectably light and flavorsome, melt-in-your-mouth almond cookies are not to be missed either. Another Koi Kee sure win bet is the phoenix egg roll with seaweed and pork floss. Though seaweed, pork floss and egg may not seem to be the most congenial culinary combination, this unassuming threesome packs a truly appetizing punch

If you’re in Macau, or even Hong Kong, take advantage and buy as much as you can because it’s good. Very good. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

I Love Yoo! at Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur….traditional porridge and dough fritter with a modern twist

Let’s cut to the chase…

There are 2 types of porridge served here, dried scallops and oyster peanut porridge. The porridge is rich, smooth and heartwarming. Crunchy ‘you tiao (yao char kuai); freshly made ‘tow foo far’ – well-loved and familiar Chinese snacks; I LOVE YOO aims to give food lovers a taste of the traditional, with a modern twist. Everything was yummy.

I haven’t felt this enthusiastic about an outlet in a long time. I’d highly recommend “I love Yoo” to whoever’s looking for a quick snack. It’s good and the staff are ultra friendly, and really the food just speaks for itself.  Overall, definitely recommended

Point to note: I’ve tried the same stuff in I Love Yoo at The Gardens, Mid valley. They don’t taste as good. That’s the true truth and I am still saying it as it is.
