The brand simply named ‘189’ has been in business for about two decades now, significantly longer than Seng Kee, yet shorter than Yee Hup. Never one that pushes for intensive/aggressive marketing measures, the brand lays low and comes only to the knowledge of the privileged few.
The crust is slightly crispy compared to other brands, but definitely flakier and suits the elderly more. The best part is the absolutely enticing fillings within. With a slight crunch from the caramelization, the liquid hardened to a layer of molasses permeated with the fragrance of shallots. This is definitely one of the old school, hidden jewel snacks from Gunung Rapat, Ipoh Malaysia.
