Kim Choo Kueh Chang

Salty chang, originally uploaded by Camemberu.

Been hankering for some good bak chang (of the salty variety), so I grabbed a few from Kim Choo when I was in the Joo Chiat vicinity. At S$2.50 each, they were not cheap but each one was fairly sizeable and of good quality.

The smooth glutinous rice is steamed just right (not too soggy nor undercooked), and seasoned well. I could eat the rice on its own. Ingredients in the dumpling include chunks of lean meat (a little too heavily spiced, in my humble opinion), a sliver of pork fat, a couple of mushrooms and a chestnut.

I love bak chang but unfortunately they almost always leave a very full, satiated feeling. They wreck havoc on your blood sugar for hours! Almost uncomfortable. But a good bak chang is hard to resist! And I like to eat them cold out of the fridge! A more solid bite than if steamed (too sticky). I have to go try Ho Kee's someday.

I also sprung for their onde onde just out of curiosity. Unfortunately they were quite ordinary and did not justify the S$2 price for the box of six tiny bite-size desserts.
