REVIEW: Good Nyonya kueh in Penang: Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay in Penang, Malaysia

Penang is famous for its Peranakan culture, particularly the well-known Baba Nyonya community. Established in 1933 as a kuih-specializing factory, Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay expanded to include a storefront in 2016, showcasing a remarkable commitment to Nyonya kueh. They are located in a historic traditional Chinese courtyard house with many ig-worthy spots throughout. They have a nice entrance that showcases some nostalgic decorative objects of the past, followed by an open kitchen, and then a dining area. It's no wonder they are recognized with the inclusion in the Michelin Guide.

Address: Lebuh Chulia, Jalan Masjid, 10200 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia

Opening Hours: 10.30am - 5pm

Closed on Monday

We tried various kueh from their menu, including and ku kueh, kueh lapis, Nyonya zhang, Pulut Tai Tai, among others. Though the portion is really small, it caters to those who are small eaters like myself. Be advised however that each Koay offered in the menu refers to a singular piece and not a set of multiple pieces. Battling the hot weather, we opted for their honey lemon to quench our thirst.

Among the assortment, my preference leaned towards the Pulut Tai Tai, crafted with glutinous rice dyed blue using butterfly pea flowers. This kueh boasts a delightful blend of sweetness and savory notes, perfectly complemented by the aromatic and mildly sweet kaya.
