Chinese New Year is around the corner, times flies it's Goat year soon! Have you started doing CNY shopping?
What you like about CNY?
Other than Angpau (Red Packets), my next favourite would be food and I like Bak Kua (Meat Jerky) the most. For the previous years, my uncle would make barbecued meat jerky (yes homemade) for sales and also for us. He made the best meat jerky ever! But too bad, he had stopped making the meat jerky and meat floss too. :(
CNY is the season which you will eat and drink non-stop, it is also the season for the fats to grow on your body too. I try to eat less Bak Kua every year because I can hardly loss weight, Bak Kua is extremely oily.
Muar Yuen Cheng Siang 麻坡源珍香
I was not familiar with this brand honestly, but it actually started since 1960s, in a famous back street in Muar. I heard from my colleague that Yuen Cheng Siang did have an outlet in Penang few years ago, she told me this brand is famous too.
Thanks to JJ Jason from JJ in Da House, I can have the opportunity to try this brand.
I like the packaging a lot!
The man who is barbecuing the Bak Kua is Yuen Cheng Siang's founder, Master Goh! Master Goh persists that his Bak Kua need to be made from fresh meat, seasoned with natural spices only and most importantly no trans fat.
I believe you can see from the photos that the texture of the Bak Kua clearly, it has great texture and not to forget superb flavour too! You can also see that it is not that oily compared to those you can get out there. So for me, this is healthy barbecued meat jerky that I would not mind to eat more. I have to give this a thumbs up! (y)
I guess due to it is less oily, the meat is not that juicy and tender and quite hard to bite.
Another thing that Yuen Cheng Siang impressed me is their creative and innovative. Other than the traditional barbecued meat jerky, they have special flavours like Almond, Baba Nyonya Chili, Black Pepper, Cheese and etc.
