Sitiawan Cheong Cia Gong Pian

Sitiawan is a pretty famous rural town situated about 80km from Taiping. However, this place produces some of the most authentic Foo Chow food in Malaysia and it remains THE ONLY reason to travel 2 hours of bumpy ride to Sitiawan for me. First up from Sitiawan is the famous Cheong Cia Gong Pian that makes the assorted Foo Chow biscuit. The gong pian comes in onion filled, pork filled and plain dough that is akin to bagel but filled with greasy fragrant braised shallots and pork bits. a Total Grease Bomb!
The CREW at work. 1 guy prepare the dough, 1 guy fill up the dough, 2 guys fire up the stove and place/remove the biscuit. 1 girl makes all guys happy.
The hand at work: Placing teh dough in the Pot like stove using 2 hooked sticks
Crew 1: Placing the dough and making sure they are not burnt. Approximately 15minutes for each dough to get crispy and fragrant! The heat is amazingly hot
