Chinese New Year Special: CNY Goodies 2019

Chinese New Year Special: CNY Goodies 2019

Chinese New Year (also known as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival) is regarded as the most important festival for Chinese families all over the world. There will be the reunion dinner, gatherings, and many house visits – certainly it will be a very eventful period! This year, Chinese New Year will be on the 5th of February and we can’t wait!

Of course, with all the festivities of Chinese New Year, CNY goodies are surely a prominent feature in any celebration. Our Chinese New Year goodies are always a hit at any CNY party and they also make for a great gift. On top of our much-loved traditional favourites, we will also be having some new items! The weeks leading up to Chinese New Year are always a busy time for us at 603 Tau Sar Piah, but we are excited to share with everyone the range of CNY goodies we have prepared for 2019!

 

Traditional Favourites

Pineapple Rolls 603 Tau Sar Piah

Let us start with the all-time-favourite Pineapple rolls, which definitely should not be missed! On top of our standard pineapple rolls, we also offer our 603 Signature Pineapple Rolls. Each roll is handmade and filled with our hand-grated pineapple filling. Making our signature pineapple filling is a tedious process, but the pineapple flavour is richer and brings a characteristic tart-sweetness that is distinct from machine-blended pineapples.

Pineapple Tarts 603 Tau Sar Piah

We also offer pineapple tarts which are like pineapple rolls, but then takes on a different texture due to the different pastry.

Now you may wonder – Rolls vs Tarts? There are loyal fans for both teams. Whether which you will like more is a personal answer, and I’m not telling you which I prefer!

Try both and decide which is your favourite! Hey, that’s a pretty fun CNY activity in itself.

Kueh Bahulu 603 Tau Sar Piah

Kueh Bahulu, a soft mini cake that is a delightful treat for people of all ages. Our Kueh Bahulus are especially soft and fluffy. As such, they are well loved by young children, the elderly, and everyone in between! It’s hard to exactly describe the taste, but each bite is aromatic and brings a subtle taste of egg – we believe this is a defining characteristic for a good Kueh Bahulu.

Kueh Bangkit 603 Tau Sar Piah

Kueh Bangkits are coconut cream cookies and for many, they are a firm favourite amongst the Chinese New Year snacks. We grew up eating these, and in our family, the tubs of Kueh Bangkits are always the first to finish. Our Kueh Bangkits are crispy on the outside, yet they just melt in your mouth. They bring just the right amount of sweetness, so even if you don’t usually like sweet treats, you will enjoy this!

 

Cookies

Coffee and Almond Cookies 603 Tau Sar Piah

Coffee and Almond cookies – this crispy, crunchy, and nutty cookie is the perfect treat for any coffee fan!

Chocolate Chip Cookies 603 Tau Sar Piah

Our ever-popular chocolate chip cookies! Chocolate lovers will love this chocolatey and nutty cookie, right from the first bite.

Cornflake Cookies 603 Tau Sar Piah

Another big favourite – Cornflake cookies. The subtle buttery flavour blended with crunchy cornflakes makes this an irresistible temptation.

Cashew Nut Cookies 603 Tau Sar Piah

You can taste real bits of cashew nuts as you bite into our crunchy Cashew Nut cookies. No overpowering sweetness that mask out the characteristically delightful nutty taste! Yummy!

 

Crisps

Seafood Crisps 603 Tau Sar Piah

Crabstick chips – Light & crispy. So addictive that before you know it, the whole tub is gone!

Seaweed Crisps 603 Tau Sar Piah

Seaweed crisps – another addictive snack that will keep your hand busy reaching for them. Good arm exercise???

Arrowroot Crisps 603 Tau Sar Piah

Arrowroot chips (also known as arrowhead, Chigu茨菇, Ngaku) – perfect for a light snack to go alongside your favourite CNY television shows.

Honey Joy 603 Tau Sar Piah

Honey Joy – a mouthful of crunchy cornflakes blended with buttery flavours and just the right amount of sweetness.

 

Yam Cake and Carrot Cake

Yam Cake Carrot Cake 603 Tau Sar Piah

Our yam cakes and carrot cakes are a must-have for Chinese New Year. Not just are they delicious, they are also symbolic because of their auspicious names – 好意头 & 好彩头, which are well wishes in mandarin. Filled with lots of dried shrimps, dried scallops, mushrooms, and chinese sausages, these kuehs will delight your taste buds. They can be served either steamed or panfried. For chilli lovers, pair it with our grandmother’s sambal chilli (which truly does go well with almost anything)!

Yam and Carrot Cake Flatlay 603 Tau Sar Piah

Chinese New Year Goodies are something we always look forward to, and it is a joy to try the many different types of them! With some delicious snacks in hand and good conversation, that is how we enjoy spending our Chinese New Year. Whether you want to buy our Chinese New Year Goodies for sharing with your loved ones, or to give them as a gift, just drop us an email or give us a call! We will be most happy to help.

Mid Autumn Special: 603 Tau Sar Piah Mooncakes 2018

Mid Autumn Special: 603 Tau Sar Piah Mooncakes 2018

In Chinese culture, the full moon is considered a symbol of reunion. The Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month – this year, the festival falls on 24th September 2018. While spending time to admire the moon with our loved ones, mooncakes are an indispensable delicacy and a highlight for many people. Possibly for this reason, many people call the mid-autumn festival the “mooncake festival” as well.

With the mooncake’s round shape symbolizing completeness and reunion, the sharing and eating of mooncakes is a meaningful tradition as family and friends gather to enjoy the pastry together. As a present, the mooncake is a thoughtful gift representing well wishes to the receiver.

For 2018, 603 Tau Sar Piah will be offering a selection of Mooncakes for sale, including both the traditional style and other special regional varieties.
