Famous Penang food can be found all over the states in Malaysia but not this Tee Nya Kuih. It can only be found in Penang 😄
This kuih is soft and bouncy felt soft. Not sticky at all and with an alkaline aroma. The syrup was the best part ! But my fav part was still the bounce, almost like eating jelly.
Do not eat Tee Nya Kuih on its own. It is yucky! Must be served with the syurp. Then it become heavenly.
