BLACK CHARCOAL HEONG PEAH AT 189, GUNUNG RAPAT, IPOH.

I received a Whatsapp message on my mobile phone from my foodie friend. She invited me to join her for some afternoon snacks and at the same time to accompany her to buy some biscuits from Gunung Rapat. She needed to buy some 'Heong Peah' biscuits for her Sibu friend.

I hopped into her car and off we went to Gunung Rapat. I have my favourite homemade 'Heong Peah' biscuits but since someone recommended this shop, we were interested to give it a try.
The moment we entered the shop, we could smell the fragrance of the freshly baked biscuits.
I bought a packet just for trial taste.
The freshly baked biscuits are very crispy and flaky.
Usually, as a gift, one would buy the package with the biscuits individually packed.
Traditional method of making 'Heong Peah' biscuits.
These freshly baked biscuits are different from the original biscuits which are brown in colour. These are Black Charcoal 'Heong Peah' biscuits. Both my friend and I like these black biscuits, more crispy than the original ones.
Using modern technology to have the biscuits individually packed.
This way is definitely cleaner and more hygenic.
Trays of freshly baked biscuits.
Individually packed biscuits are dropped into the paper box.
Hope to visit this shop again for more of the Black Charcoal biscuits.
Address: Yat Pat Gao Enterprise (189 Enterprise in Cantonese)
Jalan Gunung Rapat (Opposite the Gunung Rapat wet market).

Look here, you people who say,

"Today or tomorrow we are going to such and such a town,

stay there a year, and open up a profitable business."

How do you know what is going to happen tomorrow?

For the length of your lives is as uncertain as the morning fog

- now you see it; soon it is gone. What you ought to say is,

"If the Lord wants us to, we shall live and do this or that."

Otherwise you will be bragging about your own plans,

and such self-confidence never pleases God.

(James 4:13-16, TLB)

  1. Interesting that the biscuits are so dark as compared to the first ones you showed us earlier yet tastier.... I was wondering what is on top. I'm sure the packaging assembly line is clean but I think they need to clean the wall especially at the bottom. I'm so finicky about cleanliness especially around where food is prepared. That would be enough to keep me from coming back I think.
    Hugs,

    1. Lol! Julia, I know what you meant by the wall at the bottom and yes they will have to look into that area and have it cleaned up. Thanks for pointing that out. Have a beautiful day!

    1. Hi Sharon, these are usually sold in packs of about 10 pieces. Very seldom are they sold individually. And they are best eaten when they are fresh. Have a lovely day!

  18. Are biscuits are so much lighter colored! I'm sure they're completely different in taste. And in England, biscuits are cookies. My stepdad is British and it took him a while to adjust to the American definition of "biscuits and gravy!"
