Kuih or kueh (pronounced 'kway') are petite Malaysian sweets and savouries found in a variety of shapes, textures, flavours, and colours. The kuih found at Makan @ Alice's is hand-crafted with passion and technique.
This is angkoo is a tortoise shaped rice flour cake filled with sweet mung bean and served on banana leaf. It's gluten free with a toothsome, somewhat chewy, textured outer and a silky smooth, sweet inner.
There's a very impressive variety of kuih avaliable from Makan @ Alice's. Some of the other selections are serimuka, a coconut cream sticky rice topped with pandan and coconut custard, onde onde, pandan balls covered with coconut and filled with gula melaka, plus many more unusual and delicious treats. They are sold in little boxes at the front counter, as well as large trays made especially to order.
I love Angkoo!! It's one of my favorite snack! They also have another type of 'kuih' which has multiple layers and they are colorful. Not sure if you noticed that. Try their Prawn noodle next time! not bad but it's spicy :)
