Ham Chin Peng (Deep fried salty pastry)

I tried translating the Ham Chin Peng as in directly from the Chinese name, and it came out to be Salty Deep Fried pastry which I re-arranged to be Deep Fried Salty Pastry.
Okay, doesn't sound good either....so let's just call it Ham Chin Peng.

Now, I don't have any fancy liking for this particular pastry although everyone around me can go ga-ga over this and even its sister counterpart; the Yau Char Kwai.

Anyway, when Auntie bought this, I saw it sitting in the blue plastic bag and I tried practicing my photography on this and here it turned out

  2. A snack most people would love to have. Penangites are lucky to have the tastiest of the both sold in Cintra street.

    I like the Ham Chin Peng more to
    the Yau Char Kwai :)

  5. Used to be a fan but now it seems there is less and less hawker selling this...the old folks either retired or passed on so youngsters didn't want to sell this anymore ;(

    I like the one with tau sar ;)
