Spiral Curry Puffs (Epok-Epok/Karipap Pusing)- $2.50 each (min order 6 pcs), $70 for a batch of 30
Spicy curried potatoes encased in a flaky homemade spiral pastry, then
deep-fried until golden and crunchy. Extremely addictive.

A top Malaysian favourite! A fluffy and light yet moist sponge, delicately fragranced with pandan and coconut cream

Homemade Kaya (Malaysian Coconut Egg Jam)- $10 per 16oz tub
A rich and luxurious blend of coconut cream, eggs, and sugar fragranced with the aroma of pandan, slowcooked until glossy. Perfect on toast with butter, or on waffles, crackers, pancakes, breadsticks, a spoon, your fingers...

Homemade Sambal Ikan Bilis- $10 per 16 oz tub
The classic must-have sweet and spicy accompaniment to nasi lemak, home-ground from fresh spices and ingredients. Also great for stir frying your favourite meat or vegetables.

Fah Sang Peng (Peanut Cookies)- $20 per tub of 30 pcs

Kuih Bangkit (Tapioca Coconut Cookies)- $20 per tub of 40 pcs
Handmade traditionally shaped little cookies with a crisp bite and powdery melt-in-the-mouth texture. Aromatic and tasty with the definitive flavours of tapioca, pandan and coconut.

One for the chocoholics- a whole roasted almond encased in a butter cookie, topped with melted dark chocolate and chopped nuts

Crispy Beehive Cookies (Kuih Ros/ Kuih Loyang)- $15 per tub of 15 pcs
Large and pretty honeycomb/rosette shaped crunchies, deep-fried until satisfyingly crisp from a batter of coconut milk and rice flour. Fragrant, lightly sweet, very addictive.

Buttery Coconut Cornflake Crunchies- $15 per tub of 25 pcs
A version of the family favourite Mum taught me growing up! :) A crunchy and
fragrant blend of dessicated coconut and crushed cornflakes
with the added bite of sweet raisins.

Mini Honey Cornflake Cups- $15 per tub of 30 pcs
Delectable little bitesize bundles of cornflakes coated in a buttery honey caramel, then baked
until crunchy. Exceedingly moreish- expect to eat a whole box in one sitting.

Bakkwa/Rougan (Chinese Dried Pork Jerky)- sold by weight, $39/lb
Free of the colouring and preservatives usually present in mass-produced versions, this delicious favourite of Malaysians (also known in Cantonese as "yoke gon" or "long yoke") is home-marinated and grilled until the perfect sticky-sweet-salty flavour and texture is achieved. A Chinese New Year staple!

For events and private parties, or when you just crave a whole lot of Malaysian food for no particular reason. Please email me at bakecookeat@gmail.com to discuss :)

Nasi Lemak
Generally considered our most beloved national dish! Fragrant coconut rice complete with trimmings: crispy ikan bilis (anchovies), roasted nuts, sambal paste, cucumber slices and hard boiled eggs. Perfect with any of the three meats listed below.

Beef Rendang
A rich and flavourful dry coconut stew with melt-in-the-mouth chunks of beef, slowcooked for hours in coconut cream and a blend of lemongrass, tamarind, galangal and other fresh spices until tender

Kari Ayam
A robust Malaysian chicken curry with potatoes, cooked in a rich coconut cream gravy. Especially perfect with roti jala below, or with nasi lemak.

Ayam Goreng Berempah
Crunchy and aromatic crispy fried chicken, marinated in a homemade paste of 12 spices

Nyonya Acar Awak
A traditional refreshing Malaysian pickle bursting with colours, textures and lip-smacking blend of sweetness, tang, spice and saltiness that cuts through heavy curries and tastes great with rice. 

Hainanese Chicken Rice
My absolute favourite dish of all time! Succulent chicken delicately infused with ginger and spring onion, drizzled with soy and sesame oil then served with a richly fragrant rice cooked in chicken broth. Complete with ginger and garlic chilli sauce.

Char Kuay Teow
Another hawker favourite, with proper "wok hei". Smoky and punchy wok-fried flat rice noodles with shrimp, beansprouts, fishcake and egg.

Mee Siam
Tangy and flavourful fried vermicelli with shrimp, beansprouts, tofu and egg. A Nyonya classic that is simultaneously sweet, sour, salty and spicy.

Wat Tan Hor/Kong Foo Chow
Cantonese style fried flat noodles with a warming egg gravy, topped with shrimp, fishcake, sliced meat and vegetables. Comfort food at its best!

Fresh Popiah
One of my mother's top foods from her hometown in Ipoh- delicious and healthy soft vegetable spring rolls, bursting with a huge mix of flavours from julienned vegetables to crispy shallots

Siew Yoke/Siobak
Crispy Chinese roast pork belly- the biggest hit in my household when I perfected the recipe! Moist and juicy with a golden crunchy crackling

Choy Sum (Chinese Flowering Cabbage) with Garlic Oil and Oyster Sauce
Simple, tasty and nutritious. Also available with pak choi or kailan

Roti Jala
Malaysian lacey coconut and turmeric crepes. Soft and savoury, perfect for mopping up a good curry gravy

Thosai/ Dosa
South Indian rice and lentil crepes

Sago Gula Melaka
Tapioca pearl pudding with palm sugar and coconut milk. A rich yet refreshing dessert, like a cold tropical fusion between sticky rice pudding, creme caramel and a bouncy jelly.
