18 Kampar : Chicken Biscuits And Other Stuff

I remember this biscuit very well from my childhood. It was the most delicious thing my teeth sank into. Light, crispy, addictive stuff. There is no way I'd leave Kampar without buying a few packets of 'Chicken Biscuits' home. I never hunted for these cookies in KL although there's a high possibility that it is available here - if you ask me, the feeling's just not the same. That's like buying a fridge magnet of Melaka in Pasar Seni, Kuala Lumpur but never actually visiting the place.

Anyway, after a satisfying meal of chicken curry bread at Yau Kee, we drove to CB Red Label to hunt for chicken biscuits and other local snacks.The shop was little more that a minute away. We parked at the side of the building.

The friendly shopkeeper who invited us in mentioned that they'd been around for 40years.

Why this is called 'chicken biscuit' when it contains no chicken meat remains a mystery to me. It's made with red fermented bean curd (nam yue). We purchased a few varieties - soft chicken biscuits, crunchy chicken biscuits and light & crispy chicken biscuits. Light and crispy, being my favourite, the crunchy ones were a pain to chew into and the soft one was perfect for my old dad.

See? No Chicken!

We also picked up two bottles of Kampar's famous Se Woh spicy chilli sauce. "Mui yee, buy-lah. Go. Buy. Don't know when we'll be back here again." That's how it ended up in our shopping basket. This chilli sauce is the perfect thing for chicken rice and if you want a dipping sauce with oomph!

Strawberry Heong Peah
? This biscuit is not made in Kampar but I found it hard to resist because it was in a flavour I had never tried. Was it yummy? Okay-lah. The original maltose flavour remains my top pick.

So there you go, these were the stuff we bought with plans to gobble some up during our vacation in Tambun Lost World. Nothing of the sort happened since I brought many little packets of nuts to snack on, instant noodles and chips. There's no chance of your tummy ever going 'kruuUuk, kruuk' if you travel with me. Lol.

Below is the address of their branch in Gopeng. According to the shopkeeper, this one's bigger and is a good rest area for travelers and tourists.
