We were really full but that didn’t stop us from having some local snacks 😛
In addition to deep fried Chinese New Year Cake 年糕, Restoran Wah Cai 3-in-1 Chinese Cake 华仔三合一招牌年糕 also sells a variety of fried snacks including cempedak, tapioca, sweet potatoes, yam, green bean, bananas and durians. Price ranges from RM 2 to RM 4.50 per piece.
We tried the Chinese New Year Cake 年糕 (yam and green bean flavours) and they were yummy! The batter was really crisp and didn’t feel too oily. I felt that the yam was really fragrant 🙂

So we had just finished our 2.5-hour dim sum lunch nearby and was wandering around in Chinatown when we notice a fast-moving queue in front of this tiny shop selling Emperor’s Puff 帝皇餅 for 35 cents each, or a dollar for 3.
So… We simply had to queue and try one, right? The funny thing was we were so full from the lunch that we only wanted to order just one piece, but the lady behind the counter could not believe someone would just order one single piece, and hubby and her went through the order a couple of times to confirm! Haha…
This turned out to be a very sweet custard puff that helped to warm us up a little in the cold 😛
