The best homemade Penang nyonya kuih in town. Without preservation with recipes that prove mom knows best.
Going to Mama Kuih feels like you’ve just entered grandma’s home. The usual suspects aside, it’s one of the few places that do a mean Malaiko, also known as Mama Kuih – this springy and soft steamed cake topped with crisp watermelon seeds is rather tasty with the fragrant sweetness of palm sugar.
Those with a sweet tooth must try the beautiful Kaya Kuih too. The rice for making pulut tai tai is dyed with butterfly pea flower so that it appears blue. A dab of kaya is also placed on top of the Kaya Kuih to sweeten it.
