印象中怡保呢個地方有好多嘅土特產, 求其數來就有沙河粉, 芽菜雞, 柚子, 香餅.. 多謝友人JY咁有心, 由家鄉捎來碳燒香餅兩大包, 感激非常, 因為我係好中意食香餅架喎!! 呢個「崑崙喇叭」嘜, 應該係香餅界中最出名架喇, 連auntie MY都話: 「去怡保買香餅一定要買呢個32號」, 哈哈!! 點解叫32號啊?? 睇睇個包裝上印有嘅地址, 原來係個門牌號碼.. 不過覺得佢「崑崙喇叭」呢個咁霸氣十足嘅名就有啲騎哩囉, 事後查證, 應該係馬來語Gunung Rapat直譯.. 絕!!
唔好見佢外表平平無奇毫不起眼啊, 頭先lunch先食咗兩件, 哎呀, 真係好食到暈咁濟喇就嚟~~ 外層酥皮餅脆卜卜, 一口咬落去成身都係餅碎, 成個污糟貓咁, 30歲人食嘢食到咁, 真係醜死人, 呵呵.. 裡邊麥芽糖漿半凝固半溶化, 煙煙韌韌咁, 同餅皮一齊喺嘴內細咀慢嚼, 麥芽撈酥皮, 個感覺好雲遊囉.. 哈哈!! 夠喇夠喇, 其實形容得有點誇(中學以後都好耐都寫唔出咁高水準嘅描述文喇), 不過我真係好中意食咁解囉.. 呢間餅鋪啲香餅又真係整得唔錯喎, 我覺得應該唔係用機器整嘅, 因為好有傳統古早味道.. 係啦, 都講明係碳燒啦, 機器點樣碳燒啫??
thanks JY for bringing me two packets of heong peng from his hometown Ipoh, really appreciate that since i'm a big fans of heong peng (i guess).. this "Gunung Rapat" heong peng should be the best in the market, as auntie MY has told me: "Getting heong peng from Ipoh?? Get Gunung Rapat heong peng then..", haha.. and i always wonder why it is branded as number "32" on the packaging, examining the packaging only to realise it's actually the shoplot number of the bakery shop..
the heong peng might look just ordinary and nothing attractive, had two pieces for lunch just now, but they are simply sinfully delicious~~ crispy and puffy pastry on the outside, and chewy half-solid-half-melted malt caramel filling the inside, a combination of them just make the whole thing so heaven.. ok ok, maybe i've described a little too far, but i really love heong peng that's the truth.. the heong peng from this bakery is really up to standard, i supposed they are not machine made, but are strictly following the traditional way of baking.. charcoal baked, oh yes, how can machines do charcoal baked, yeah??
