SG | Quick Bites | Kueh Lapis

Nonya Kueh are local bite-sized delicacies sold in Malaysia and Singapore. Think their equivalent to our native kakanin (they use a lot of asian ingredients like coconut milk, rice).   These tasty snacks are great options for merienda or whenever you feel like having a sweet treat (although, there are also savoury types).

My favorites?  

Rainbow Lapis (top and bottom) - think sapin-sapin.  Tastes exactly as such but is not as chewy.
 
Nonya Kueh 
Kueh Salak (middle) - a rectangular layered block of pandan custard and coconut rice cakes.  The pandan part is the sweeter of the 2 and has a thick pudding-like texture.  The other part, is a mix of coconut cream rice flour and sugar (among others).  My way of eating it is to have a bit of both portions in one bite. 

Yummy!
